How To Clean Your Almond Cow

We designed the Almond Cow to be as easy to clean as it is to make milk with. The key for the fastest cleanup is to do everything while the unit is still damp from making milk - nut residue is much harder to clean when dry.

Unscrew Almond Cow Top

Step 1

While the machine is still wet, unscrew the basket cup in the direction printed on the outside (counter-clockwise).

Step 2

Remove the pulp from the canister. This makes for excellent compost, but an even better recipe ingredient. We have a number of almond pulp recipes on our site, including almond pulp granola, almond pulp cookies, and more.

Step 3

While the machine is still wet, rinse the blade and machine head under running water. The inside face of the Almond Cow is safe from water, so use your hand or a rag to splash over the face and remove any remaining pulp.

Step 4

Over time, some of the pores in the canister may close up with the almond paste. This happens faster if the Almond Cow is allowed to dry with nut pulp on it. Don't worry! This just takes a bit longer to clean up. When this happens, place the filter basket in a vinegar solution of 2tbsp vinegar and 2 cups of water until the pores are fully submerged. Allow to soak overnight, then use a sponge and water rinse to wipe up the next day.

Step 5

When everything is cleaned up, just place the head sideways on top and leave to dry.
