Paleo Almond Kefir Milk

Paleo Dairy Free Almond Kefir Milk

  • Author: Tina Turbin


Please enjoy this very simple and quick way to make a kefir using almonds and only a few other ingredients, which by the way are all optional as far as flavor goes.


  • 4 cups almonds
  • Honey, to taste
  • Ground vanilla, to taste
  • Kefir starter grains


  1. Cover the almonds with filtered water for 8-12 hours or overnight.
  2. Strain.
  3. Place almonds in a blender with fresh, warm filtered water and blend on high until very milky. I use a Vitamix so this warms the water a tad more.
  4. Add warm filtered water as needed.
  5. Let sit a moment to settle.
  6. Strain.
  7. Place warm MILK (only) quickly back in blender.
  8. Add a bit of honey and ground or pure vanilla.
  9. Blend on high.
  10. Add the starter Kefir packet into the warm liquid. (I use Body Ecology Kefir Starter)
  11. Pour the mixture into a jar and place on shelf for 1-2 days, and you’ve got kefir.
  12. Transfer to the fridge.
  13. Enjoy!


The more Kefir Starter you use the more pungent the flavor.
This particular recipe will not be as thick as a whole milk kefir but will have the culture benefits.
Many prefer to leave some of the nuts in the milk. I do not. I get enough nuts in my diet as it is with all my paleo baking.
