How long does Almond Cow milk typically last in the fridge?
Depending on the amount of salt added, typically 3-5 days.
Is it necessary to add salt to the milk?
Salt helps extend the life of the milk and adds flavor, but is not necessary.
The milk separated overnight. Is this normal?
Yes, this is totally normal! Plant-based milks without additives and fillers naturally separate over time.
Just shake it up and it will be ready to enjoy!
Does the Almond Cow heat the milk? Is it still raw?
In order to protect the nutrients in the ingredients you’re using, the Almond Cow does not use any heat!
The milk-making process will finish at the same temperature it started at.
Can I make rice milk in the Almond Cow?
Yes, but the rice should be cooked before using it in the Almond Cow.
Can I make soy milk in the Almond Cow?
Yes, but the soybeans should be cooked before using them in the Almond Cow.
What quantity of nuts and seeds should I use to make the milk?
We recommend using ½ to 1 full cup of soaked raw ingredients - any combination of nuts, seeds,
and grains that you like - to make milk in your Almond Cow. (Most plant-based milks in stores use very little in the way of actual nuts or seeds.
They’re mostly water and a large amount of artificial thickeners, fillers, and flavorings.)
How much does it cost to make a cup of milk?
If you use the recommended amount of one cup of almonds, for example, you’ll be saving about 30% versus store bought milk,
and getting a milk much richer in actual almonds, since many store-bought milk are primarily water and additives.
Not to mention, you’ll be left with the remaining almond pulp, which has many uses.
If you made oat milk in your Almond Cow, the savings would be closer to 90% or higher.
Keep in mind you can use any combination of nuts, seeds, grains, oats,
which allows you to control the price of whatever plant-based milk you decide to make.
A cup of almond milk made in your Almond Cow versus store-bought milk would cost less than 10% of what is commonly used in store-bought versions.
