For almond milk

  • 1 cup (150g) almonds
  • 1 quart (946ml) water
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

For mayonnaise

  • 1 cup (220g) sunflower oil
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) simple almond milk made with the NutraMilk
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • salt to taste

For aioli

  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise made with the NutraMilk
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Start by making fresh almond milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place almonds in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 7 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid, add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense
    • Set aside ½ cup for mayonnaise and save the rest for later use.
  • Make vegan mayonnaise next:
    • Blend all mayonnaise ingredients - adding the oil gradually until ingredients emulsify and you have a thick and creamy consistency.          
      • It´s important that the milk and the oil are at the same temperature in order for mayonnaise to emulsify.
      • It works best to use an immersion blender (handheld blender) to make mayonnaise. You can also try using a whisk or a blender.
      • If the consistency is too thick, add more milk and if it´s too watery add more oil.   
  • Make aioli:
    • First, roast bell pepper by placing it on a sheet pan with parchment paper and in the oven (400°) for 25-30 minutes or until skin is blackened and papery. Once bell pepper has cooled, remove the stem and seeds, peel the skins from the pepper and discard.
    • Transfer to the NutraMilk with garlic and process for a few seconds.
    • Add mayonnaise, salt, and pepper to the NutraMilk and process until well blended and smooth.
    • Refrigerate for a few hours or even overnight to thicken and for the flavor to marry before serving.
