Plus, this piece of equipment provides you with fresh, unprocessed milk that is free of preservatives, gums and thickeners. It really is the best nut milk maker! (Use use my Almond Cow coupon code: REALFOODRABBIT for a discount on the Almond Cow.)
I frequently make my own nut and seed milk using the Almond Cow. Lately, I've been making a lot of vanilla almond milk, as it's my favorite.
Also, the Almond Cow website now offers ingredients for sale, not just the milk maker itself. Their ingredient bundle is a great deal - you can purchase bulk almonds, organic coconut and organic oats at a reasonable price.
They also offer milk jugs for storing your homemade almond milk. Or, if you're like me, you can use leftover glass jars from nut butters, kombucha, etc.
However, you're all here for this Almond Cow Almond Milk recipe. So let's get started! I've got a step-by-step tutorial on how to use the Almond Cow to make almond milk. Which, will apply to any type of nut or seed milk you wish to make.
Healthy Almond Cow Almond Milk
As mentioned, this easy almond milk recipe is:
- Whole30 approved

This recipe fits any diet, so long as you can consume almonds 😉 I added flavorings such as vanilla, cinnamon and salt, but these are completely optional.
How to Make Almond Milk Using the Almond Cow
Soak the Nuts
First, you must soak your almonds for at least 12 hours. Simply place the almonds in a bowl and fill with water so that they are fully submerged.
Let the almonds sit in the water overnight, or all day long. They will soak up the water, becoming plump and fuller in size.
When you're ready to make the nut milk, drain all of the water from the almonds and place them in the stainless steel basket.
Gather the Necessary Ingredients
Next, gather the ingredients you'll need. For this recipe, I used:
- soaked almonds
- vanilla extract
You may include any, or none of these add-ins - it's completely up to you! I like the extra flavor that cinnamon, vanilla and salt add. However, this recipe can be made using just the soaked almonds.
The almonds I used were from the Almond Cow website. They offer bulk bags of non-GMO almonds, organic shredded coconut and organic oats at a reasonable price.
Fill the Almond Cow
Next, fill the Almond Cow base with water to the minimum or maximum fill line (I did minimum). Ideally, use filtered water for optimum taste.
Add the flavorings (cinnamon, vanilla and salt) into the water. Some other flavor options include: nutmeg, maple syrup, or sugar-free sweetener.
Place Lid on Almond Cow
Next, connect the stainless steel basket (with the soaked almonds) to the lid of the Almond Cow. A quick tip: I find this easiest to do by holding the two together and then turning them upside down (so the basket is on top of the lid). This way, the almonds drop to the top and they move out of the way of the blade.
Then, put the lid onto the base of the Almond Cow.
Plug in Almond Cow
Grab the cord and plug one end into the machine, while placing the other into the wall.
Start Almond Cow
Lastly, press the button on top of the Almond Cow lid and let it run! It only takes a couple minutes.
Once it's done running, you can either run it for another cycle (I suggest doing this for a bit more flavor) or pour it out into a container for storage.
How to Store Homemade Almond Milk
I recommend storing homemade almond milk in a glass jar. You can purchase some from the Almond Cow website, or use leftover glass jars from food items.
Almond milk needs to be stored in the fridge. Another great option is to pour it in ice cube trays and freeze it for smoothies or iced lattes.
If you don't already have an Almond Cow, I highly recommend one. Especially if you make your own nut/seed/oat milk. It is much easier to use (and clean) than a nut milk bag.
Almond Cow Starter Set
I suggest purchasing their starter set, which includes:
- Almond Cow Machine
- glass jug
- bulk almonds
- bulk oats
