Dairy-Free Milk with Almond Cow (3 Recipes!) - daniellewalker.com

In partnership with our friends at Almond Cow 

I try not to collect kitchen appliances, but the Almond Cow has quickly proven to be a necessary staple in my kitchen. It’s what I primarily use to make all of my dairy-free milk. I typically soak my almonds and cashews and then throw them in the freezer so I always have them prepped and ready to go. Then with a simple push of a button, I have almond milk prepared for all my recipe testing needs! 

Making homemade milk certainly saves money, plus I don’t miss my days of manually squeezing a nut-milk bag. I found myself just buying dairy-free milk like almond in order to avoid the mess and clean up. Eventually, that can be pricey and doesn’t always have the cleanest ingredients. I am so happy with the addition of my Almond Cow and can’t imagine my kitchen without it!

Why I’m In Love With Almond Cow

Aside from all the plastic saving that comes from not purchasing store-bought nut milk, there’s no squeezing and no messes when the milk misses the bowl. No fillers, no binders, and no stabilizers. It’s incredibly easy to clean, which I was afraid it wouldn’t be. Much easier than scraping out the inside of a nut-milk bag and washing it free of residue. You also get all of your pulp to use in other recipes, which I always felt I wasted when I made homemade dairy-free milk and couldn’t get it all out of the bag.

I can make all of my favorite coffee creamer recipes in it – Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread, and Vanilla. You can have so much fun with what you make – Hazelnut, Walnut, Pecan, Almond, Cashew. Chocolate, Horchata, Eggnog, Golden Milk…you name it! I’ve included 3 of my favorite recipes below including my Pumpkin Spice, Chocolate Cashew, Vanilla Creamer, and Hot Cocoa! 

One of the best parts of owning an


– I can have beverages ready in minutes. I’ve had it for a year and a half now, and use it every single week to create a variety of dairy-free milk!

    Made the chocolate milk and kids loved it! I only had cacao (not cocoa) on hand so used that but it was still yummy.

    Do you do anything with the pulp?
