Are you wondering how to make dairy free milk? I know I’ve wanted to do it for sometime now but just recently started making dairy free milk. When I first looked into how to do it, I was turned off by all the nut bags, strainers and other messes it seemed I would need to have in order to make it work correctly. Then I found online a couple of expensive machines such as the Milk Cow and a few others. However, I still didn’t want to spend more than one hundred dollars on a machine to make dairy free milk.
Then one day I was searching on Amazon to see what else is out there and I found a simple to use inexpensive (around $25) nut milk maker.(affiliate link) I ordered it and I’ve been using it now for over a month and I love it.
The taste of the almond milk and coconut milk I’ve made so far is much better than store bought. Plus it’s cleaner because you don’t have the added gums, filers, sugars and preservatives. You can also make milk with this machine out of oats, hemp and other grains and seeds. I haven’t tried those yet.
What I like most about using this machine to make dairy free milks, is that it’s simple, with almost no mess and you don’t have to use a nut bag. When making almond milk you do have to soak the almonds for 12 hours first. However, I think that is a common practice when making any kind of almond milk. With coconut milk you only have to leave the coconut soaking for about 10 minutes. Then you just add water, put it in a blender to blend it and then it through the strainer that is attached to the glass carafe and you have a dairy free milk ready within 20 minutes. Almond milk takes longer than coconut milk and there is more pulp to throw away or put down your disposal. It is recommended to add 1 tsp of salt to almond milk. Coconut milk doesn’t need it.
Then you can store it in the glass carafe that comes with the nut milk chef tool for up to 4 days in your fridge.
I was a bit skeptical at first as to if it would really work and what the nut milks would taste like but it has worked out great for me and I’m sure will be cheaper in the long run as well. The only thing to watch out for, is that with almond milk you will have to push down on the liquid in the strainer a few times to get out all the milk.Did this help you? If so, I would greatly appreciate a share on Facebook, twitter, linkedin, or pinterest.
