Brilliant Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons, GF, Sugarfree option

I love the sweet chewiness of a coconut macaroon but the sugar content in the commercial products was always too much for my tastes. Until I made these...They are divine and healthy! And guess what? they are super easy to make gluten free!

If you're paying for almond milk you need to try this!  In my opinion it's so much tastier and I feel like it's almost free!

It only takes 1 cup of raw almonds, but you get most of the almond meal back after blending and straining.  I scoop it back into my Homemade Almond butter tub and stir it in or use it in my baked goods.

I haven't tried dehydrating the leftover almond meal yet, but I think that's next on the list, and then grind it into almond flour.

I add psyllium husks for the extra fiber heath benefits and to thicken up the milk a little. If you don't have them on hand don't worry, it will still turn out fine.

I use an older Cuisinart Food Processor/Blender for almost everything, and it works great but I'm slowly wearing out my beloved beast with all the grinding that I do these days, so I think when it finally goes to the big appliance junk yard in the sky, I might buy this Oster blender (ps. affiliate links don't cost you anything, but they pay me a few pennies)

DIY Almond Milk, GF, SF, DF, lactose free, frugal

Inspired by Whole New Mom

Makes 3-4 cups of Almond Milk

  1. Soak your almonds overnight.  Drain the water and rinse the almonds. Remove any skins. 
  2. Put all ingredients into your food processor or  blender. Careful, it will expand so only fill it 1/2 full.
  3. Blend for about 4-5 minutes (less if you have a high powered machine) or until you have a thick white milk color.
  4. Strain the milk thru a fine mesh strainer.  I adore my strainer!
  5. Scrape the almond meal from the strainer and reserve for baking or almond butter.
  6. Pour into jar and refrigerate.   Shake before using
Note:  I love my homemade latte's and this almond milk foams!!  It makes me very happy  :)


  1. I can drink regular milk but I am going to print this out to have on hand. Thanks for the recipe.


    1. Hi Janet, you're welcome! I love the nutty flavor in my baked goods and I put it in my smoothies too! Have a great day, Ali
