How do you save money with your Thermomix? There are so many ways that owning a Thermomix can help you save you a little or a lot off your weekly grocery bill that I thought I’d share some of my Top Tips!
Let’s discuss almond milk today.
Almond milk is a plant milk manufactured from almonds with a creamy texture and nutty flavor, although some types or brands are flavored in imitation of dairy milk. It is made by grinding almonds, mixing them with water, and then filtering the mixtures to create milk that has a nutty flavour. It’s a great alternative for those who cannot or choose not to drink cow’s milk as well as people who just like drinking alternative milk.
Many commercial varieties are available but it’s best homemade.
Why is almond milk so great?
- It is dairy-free Almond milk contains no cow’s milk or other animal products making it a great option for those who are lactose intolerant or following a vegan, plant-based diet.
- It is nutritious Almond milk is naturally rich in several vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin E.
- It is low in calories. Almond milk is lower in calories than cow’s milk. Some find this fact confusing as almonds are known to be high in calories and fat. However, due to the way almond milk is processed, there is a very small portion of almonds (10% or less) in the final product. It is a great way for people to cut calories and lose weight.
- Low in sugar. Making your own almond milk means that it is sugar-free or low sugar. Commercial almond milk contains sugars and artificial sweeteners, so making your own you know the quantity of sugar in it.
- It may reduce the risk of heart disease Studies show that regular consumption of nuts is linked to a reduced risk of heart disease. This is partly because they are high in healthful fats.
How do you make almond milk in the Thermomix?
- 1000 g water, cold, plus extra for soaking
- 200 g almonds, whole
- 1000 g water, cold
- Place a bowl on the mixing bowl lid and weigh in almonds. Cover with water and set aside in the fridge to soak overnight (or for at least 6 hours).
- Rinse soaked almonds under running water then drain and place in mixing bowl.
- Add 1000 g water and blend 3 min/speed 10. Line simmering basket with a muslin cloth, or use a nut milk bag, then slowly pour the almond mixture through muslin, collecting milk in a bowl below. Reserve almond pulp in muslin (see tip) then transfer almond milk to a glass bottle (1L)
- Keep the almond pulp collected in the muslin. It can be used for making cakes, cereals, ice cream, or smoothies. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze until needed.
- To prepare the bottle, thoroughly wash the bottle and lid in hot, soapy water. Rinse by pouring over boiling water. Prepare for filling, if needed, by placing on a clean tea towel in a roasting tin and heating in the oven at 100˚C until required.
- The almond milk will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days. If it separates, shake the bottle to homogenise again.
The cost saving is incredible as you can buy almonds in bulk and simply add water.
- Alpro Almond Milk, unsweetened, 1L, £1.80
- Rude Health Almond Organic Drink, 1L, £2.00
- Innocent Dairy Free Almond Unsweetened Drink, 750ml £2.00

This lemon concentrate cleaner is a beauty. First written on the Thermomix UK website when I bought my TM31 back in 2009, it’s been lost in the archives and I’m here to revive it.
Lemon contains both acidity found in the juice along with grease-cutting oil within its skin, combined to create a superb cleaning companion. The acid in lemons is also antibacterials and antiseptic and acts as a natural bleach. The citrus smell of lemon is refreshing and invigorating. Oils in the rinds help the clean and shine. With salt, you can throw away many of the harsh, chemical-based products under your sink or in your cleaning cupboard.
But there’s just one caveat to bear in mind. While lemons and lemon juice can do a great job with many household chores, it is not a disinfectant. In other words, it is not a good substitute for bleach or related products when you are actually trying to remove dangerous microbes from cooking surfaces. Because food safety is important, be sure to hang onto appropriate cleaning products and use them as needed.
Uses include cleaning copper bottom pots and pans, countertops, drains, glass cleaning, fridge freshener, microwaves, cheese graters, wood cleaner, etc. Of course, I use it to clean my TM bowl too. This homemade lemon cleaner is acidic and can be used to clean countless things in your home.
Disclaimer – Thermomix® is a cooking appliance intended to be only used for food preparation.
However, the recipes here are using food ingredients – lemon, salt, water, vinegar I also have multiple Thermomixes and TM bowls, so I can safely use separate bowls for making these without any cross-contamination. If in any doubt, don’t make them.
