Macadamia nut milk is a delicious and nutritious dairy-free alternative to cow’s milk. It’s high in antioxidants and healthy fats, and has a creamy texture that makes it perfect for drinking or using in recipes. Making your own macadamia nut milk is easy and affordable, and it gives you control over the ingredients used.

  • Total Time: 6 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup raw macadamia nuts (unroasted and unsalted)
  • 3 1/2 cups filtered water
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. To make vanilla macadamia milk, you just need to combine the macadamia nuts, water, dates, and vanilla extract in the pitcher of a high-speed blender.
  2. Blend the ingredients until creamy, about 30-45 seconds.
  3. Transfer the blended milk to a pitcher. 


  1. Want a low-sugar option? Just leave out the dates or use your favorite sugar-free sweetener (see my list of the best natural sugar substitutes).
  2. If you plan to use your macadamia milk in a savory recipe, leave out the dates and vanilla.
  3. Keep the macadamia milk refrigerated in a covered container and use within 5 days.
  4. Stir or shake the pitcher before using.
