When it comes to dairy alternatives, nut milks like almond milk and cashew milk are pretty far up there in popularity. You’ll often find a variety of brands in the dairy section of the grocery store, or as a non-dairy alternative at your local coffee shop.
Nut milks are considered such great options not only because they’re better options for the planet, but also because of their longevity and creamy, nutty taste. But what if we told you that you can make your own nut milk at home in record time using nut butter—something you likely already have in your pantry?

If you have any kind of nut butter at home—from peanut to almond to cashew—you can use the recipe below to make a creamy option perfect for your morning coffee, cereal, and your favorite recipes. No clunky cartons needed.
