Homemade Macadamia Nut Milk is so easy to make and tastes amazing! To enjoy this plant based milk – just soak, blend and strain! In this post, I’m breaking down how to make dairy free milk with macadamia nuts and sharing recipes for how to use it!


  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 4 cups water, divided 


  • 1 medjool date, pitted 
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 


  1. Add the macadamia nuts to a small jar and cover with 1 cup water. Soak for 2 hours then drain the nuts. 
  2. Add the nuts, remaining 3 cups of water, and optional flavorings to a blender and blend on high speed until smooth– about 2 minutes.
  3. Pour the mixture through a milk nut bag into a large bowl. Make sure to squeeze any excess liquid from the nut milk bag. 
  4. Transfer the milk to an airtight container and store in the fridge until ready to enjoy. Discard after 1 week. Shake before serving.


  • Most recipes recommend raw macadamia nuts, but I’ve found this recipe works with both raw and toasted, just make sure they’re unsalted! 
  • Medjool dates can be used to sweeten the milk, but you can also use honey, maple syrup, or your liquid sweetener of choice. 
  • Vanilla adds a subtle sweetness to the milk that’s great if you’re drinking the milk straight or using it in sweet baking.
