I’ve been in the mood for chocolate mylk, which is rare because I don’t even like chocolate mylk. But I guess I’ve come to realize, I just don’t like store bought chocolate milk. But thanks to my Almond Cow it makes it super convenient to make my own mylk’s at home in under 1 minute.
What is the Almond Cow?
The almond cow is a machine that can be used to create a variety of plant-based mylk’s and creamers at home in under a minute. And you can use any nut, seed, or grain to make a variety of mylk’s. But what is even more awesome, this machine does all the straining for you, 0 mess, and easy clean up. If you want to grab one, feel free to use my code: Melissa15 for $15 off your Almond Cow.
Ingredients you will need:
- Medjool dates
- Vanilla extract
- Raw almonds
- Cacao powder
How to make in the Almond Cow:
Add the soaked dates and almonds to the filter basket of the Almond Cow and seal with the top. To the base, fill with 5 cups of water, add vanilla extract, salt, cacao powder, cinnamon, and give it a nice stir. And then place the top on. Press the Almond Cow button, and let it go through 3 cycles. Once the green light is solid, your chocolate mylk is done.
How to make in the blender:
And don’t worry, if you don’t have an Almond Cow, you can make it in your blender. But be sure to soak your almonds and dates overnight or for at least for 30 minutes in warm water. Because this helps create a smooth, creamy consistency, and doesn’t make your blender work extra hard. But you will have to strain the mylk using a mesh bag or cheese cloth to get a smooth creamy consistency.
How to store:
I like to store mine in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 5-6 days. Because this mylk does not contain any fillers or gums, it will not last as long as the traditional mylk’s do. But you could also freeze by placing in silicone ice molds and use when needed.
What can I use it for?
Of course this chocolate mylk is the perfect addition to your favorite brewed coffee or cold brew. But it also makes a great addition to your favorite smoothie combination, festive hot chocolates, or with your favorite breakfast option.
