Frequently Asked Questions

The Milk
  • 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.

  • 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. See:

  • How much milk is made in one batch?

    5-6 cups per batch.

  • Do you have to soak the nuts beforehand?

    Soaking the nuts is not required but we do recommend it for a smoother milk.

  • Can coconut water or other liquids be used in the base of the machine in place of regular water?

    Yes!

  • Can you use just fruit in the AC?

    Yes, but this isn’t recommended. Fruit is not the best base for milk.

  • Can I use quick oats instead of old fashioned to make oat milk?

    Yes, either is fine.

  • Can you use hot water in the base of the machine?

    Yes!

  • Can you make yogurt in the AC?

    You can use milk from your Almond Cow to make yogurt. Check out our dairy-free coconut yogurt recipe (https://almondcow.co/blogs/milk-recipes/dairy-free-coconut-yogurt).

  • Can you make juice in the AC?

    Almond Cow is not designed for juicing.

The Almond Cow
  • How is this different than a blender with a nut milk bag?

    The Almond Cow automatically separates the pulp from the milk, so you don’t have to! In less than a minute, you have milk that’s ready to drink and pulp that’s ready to enjoy!

  • How do I make the milk thicker?

    Natural plant-based milk isn’t thick. Thickness is normally the result of artificial thickening agents meant to make milks seem “silky”. There are natural tricks to making milk thicker--- we recommend adding rolled oats along with other ingredients to make the milk thicker, naturally.

  • Sometimes I have trouble attaching the filter basket. How do you recommend doing this?

    Hold the Almond Cow top with your non-dominant hand and twist to attach using your dominant hand. The fit is intentionally tight to make the blending more complete. See video below for example...

  • Do I still have to strain the milk?

    Nope, no straining needed! Almond Cow separates the pulp from the milk so you don't have to. Say goodbye to your nut milk bag.

  • How do you recommend cleaning the filter basket?

    A sponge and water will normally suffice, but over time the pores in the filter basket will need a deeper clean. We recommend an extended vinegar-water soak. Just take 4 cups of water and add 4tbsp of vinegar and allow to soak overnight.

  • What is the white cup for?

    This is a collector cup that serves as a stand for the top of the Almond Cow once you’ve made the milk, allowing excess liquid to drain out.

  • Is the Almond Cow dishwasher safe?

    No. The Almond Cow should be cleaned by hand with a wet sponge or rag. Only the filter basket is dishwasher safe.

  • How do I clean my Almond Cow?

    After using the Almond Cow, rinse out the inside of the base with water. Detach the filter basket, empty the pulp into a container for storage, and rinse the stainless steel parts of the top where the blade is. Do not get the top of the Almond Cow (where the button is) wet as this can damage the motor. Rinse out the filter basket and you’re good to go! Read More

  • My Almond Cow machine starts blending, stops and then starts blending again, is this normal?

    Yes! The Almond Cow has a 3-stage blending cycle to help ensure proper blending of the ingredients. Once the cycle is complete the light on top of the machine will be solid green and the blending will completely stop.

  • How can I get the almond milk to froth?

    Un-soaked almonds work best for frothy milk.

Ingredients
  • Do you ship ingredients internationally?

    Our ingredients are available in the US and Canada only.

  • Where do you source your almonds?

    They are from California.

  • How much milk does each bag make? What is the cost breakdown?

  • The number of jugs are based on filling to the MIN line of the Almond Cow.
  • Our 3 lb almonds would make 5.6 half gallons and our oats would make 7.5 half gallons of oat milk.
  • Are the nuts processed on shared equipment with dairy products?

    Dairy is packaged in the same facility, but not on the same equipment as our nuts.

  • Are your coconut and oats produced and packaged in the same area too and on the same equipment as the almonds and other tree nuts?

    The coconut shreds and almonds are packaged in the same facility, but the oats are in their own stand alone facility.

  • Are your ingredients gluten free?

    Our whole grain oats are certified gluten-free. Our other ingredients do not contain any gluten of course, but are not individually certified.

  • Why are your almonds not organic?

    We wanted to begin with a budget-friendly choice for almonds. While the almonds are not organic, they are Non-GMO Project Verified, Pollinator Partnership approved (which means they're bee-friendly), and Glyphosate Residue Free approved by DetoxProject.org (which have substantially higher standards for glyphosate threshold than the USDA). We're also planning to offer Organic Almonds in the near future as well.

  • Is the Almond Cow 100% stainless steel (what type of material used)?

    We use food grade 304 stainless steel to make the Almond Cow. Stainless Steel is the only surface that touches milk inside of the Almond Cow. There is plastic and silicone elsewhere in the design, but it does not make contact with the milk. The plastic collector cup is BPA free.
