1. Avocado Milk
Avocado is one of the richest and creamiest fruits so exist. Thus it makes sense to make milk out of it. This Almond Cow recipe will make you fall in love with this heavenly fruit all over again.
Avocado is a wonderful source of potassium and folate; potassium protects the body from stroke and osteoporosis, whereas folate promotes healthy cellular growth and function.
The little bit of sea salt added to the drink helps intensify the flavors in the milk; try this trick with chocolate milk as well, and you’ll be surprised by how good it tastes.
Do your children throw tantrums when you tell them to drink milk? Are you worried that the lack of milk consumption could lead to malnutrition?
If your answer to both questions is a solid ‘yes,’ this Almond Cow recipe might just solve all your problems. Most kids love bubblegum, which is why convincing them to drink this milk is going to be a breeze.
Apart from bubblegum flavor, the milk contains cashew nuts and blue spirulina, which gives the drink a playful blue color and loads of antioxidants.
The purpose of the almond cow machine is not limited to extracting milk from different ingredients. It is also capable of creating fabulous infusion drinks and cocktails.
This Almond Cow recipe produces a beautiful blue drink that is refreshing and intoxicating at the same time. The drink incorporates blue spirulina, a blue-green algae that grows in alkaline water bodies, including ponds and lakes.
In essence, this drink is a boozy blue lemonade, free of artificial flavors and coloring. Make this on a hot summer day to beat the heat and feel rejuvenated.
Peanut allergies are quite common, and many people suffer allergic reactions to other kinds of nuts as well. Hemp seed milk is a safe alternative, and it’s also known to be a nutritional powerhouse.
Did you know that hemp seed milk is considered a complete protein source? It provides all nine essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own. This makes it an excellent option for vegans and vegetarians looking to meet their daily protein needs.
The pitted dates or maple syrup is added to give the milk some natural sweetness, and the vanilla extract makes it more flavorsome.
Does it feel like a hundred degrees? One can only wish to be transported to a tropical paradise, but it is possible to make yourself an over-the-top drink and suppose you’re sipping it at a luxurious resort.
This Almond Cow recipe features a fusion of coconut, pineapple, and lime, which delivers an explosion of tropical flavors in your mouth. If you want to make a non-alcoholic version of this drink, simply leave out the coconut rum and use more coconut water instead.
This drink is best served chilled, so be generous with the ice cubes!
Sometimes we all need a little boost to get through the day, and that’s exactly what this Almond Cow recipe is designed for.
Glow Wellness Shots are undersized concentrated beverages that pack a powerful punch of essential nutrients. They often contain a combination of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds that provide an immediate boost of energy.
This energy drink contains turmeric, ginger, and black pepper, which are believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. Lemon and cayenne pepper make the shot zesty and spicy.
7. Muscle Milk
Despite being a morning person, I was never productive in the early hours of the day. Even making and eating breakfast seemed like a chore, but that was until I discovered this Almond Cow recipe.
Muscle Milk is a protein-rich drink that is delicious and unbelievably energizing. Ever since I started having this chocolate-flavored milk for breakfast, I’ve been as active as Quicksilver.
This recipe features monk fruit, which serves as a natural sweetener. If it is not easily available to you, just add regular sugar, honey, or maple syrup to compensate.
8. Cashew Milk
I am extremely fond of cashew nuts; they’re delicious, crunchy, and buttery, so what’s not to like? Cashew milk is naturally the next best thing; thus, I highly recommend this Almond Cow recipe.
The unsaturated fats found in cashews, especially monounsaturated fats, have been associated with heart health benefits. Consuming these fats in moderation may help lower bad cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Cashew milk often contains added calcium, which is essential for maintaining strong bones and teeth. It can be a valuable addition to a diet for individuals who avoid or limit dairy consumption.
Strawberry Bourbon Smash is a fun name for a fun drink! It’s a simple bourbon cocktail infused with the sweet and tart goodness of fresh strawberries.
This has become my go-to drink whenever it’s strawberry season. I’m not sure if it will turn out just as good with frozen fruit. This Almond Cow recipe also includes mint leaves, so any fan of mint margaritas is bound to love this.
Do make this drink for your friends if you want to impress them and fetch compliments. It’s so refreshing and an absolute crowd-pleaser.
10. Cold Brew Milk
What if I told you that you can make the creamiest cup of coffee in the Almond Cow machine without adding any actual milk? Try it, and you’ll never want to have your daily caffeine dose any other way!
I prefer this drink cold, so I add a handful of ice cubes. I also drizzle some chocolate syrup on the top to turn it into a sweet mocha latte. You can also put cinnamon or other flavorings that you like to add to your usual cup of coffee.
We cannot get enough of stimulating summer cocktails, so here’s a recipe for another one. To make this drink, you’ll need two cups of lemonade, preferably sweetened.
This Almond Cow recipe features ‘blue curaçao,’ which is a liquor flavored with dried peels of the orange laraha – a fruit native to the Dutch island of Curacao. The bright blue color of the liquor comes from a food dye.
This gorgeous cocktail is incredibly citrusy and minty, making it ideal for serving at summer mixers and pool parties.
If you enjoy Pina Coladas, you’ll certainly adore Pineapple Coconut Milk! It’s a yummy, booze-free concoction that can be served to family members and friends of all ages.
Pineapple juice, coconut cream, and shredded coconut flesh are the key ingredients in this Almond Cow recipe. You don’t need any supplementary sweetener, as the sugar from pineapple juice is sufficient in this case.
Did you know that coconuts are an excellent source of the mineral manganese? Manganese improves bone health and aids in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and cholesterol.
13. Coconut Milk
Why buy canned or preserved coconut milk from the store when you can make your own fresh at home? Do you know that food loses much of its nutritional value during the canning process?
Making coconut milk by yourself using this Almond Cow recipe is not just healthy, but also economical! Not to mention, freshly produced coconut milk is ten times tastier than preserved ones.
The vanilla extract and sweetening agents are optional but add pleasant notes to the milk. In my opinion, the plain milk tastes pretty amazing on its own as well.
Who doesn’t like Rocky Road? It’s a classic ice cream flavor cherished by both kids and adults alike. Now presenting “Rocky Road Milk” that even our vegan friends can enjoy!
The combination of almonds, cacao, and marshmallows in this delectable drink is nostalgic; you get to savor the beloved flavors of Rocky Road without consuming any dairy product.
This Almond Cow recipe incorporates ‘agave,’ which is a desert plant known to possess a high fructose content. Despite being a natural sweetener, it has a higher calorific value than conventional white sugar.
It’s dumbfounding how one can acquire milk from the least suspecting items, such as watermelon seeds. Watermelon is a miraculous fruit that comes with tons of health benefits; even the tough outer covering has many uses, and now apparently, the seeds too.
Watermelon seed milk has a slightly bitter taste, so the pitted dates or maple syrup used in this Almond Cow recipe help camouflage it. However, just like other non-dairy milk (soy, almond, rice, etc.), it gradually grows on you.
Next time you eat a watermelon, save up the seeds to make this nutritious milk, which is very good for heart health.
16. Almond Milk
Almond milk is the closest to cow milk in taste and texture, which makes it a popular non-dairy option. It is widely available in the market under many brand names, but none of those are as nourishing and flavorful as the kind you make at home.
Almond milk is lower in calories compared to cow’s milk, making it a suitable choice for those looking to manage their calorie intake or maintain a healthy weight. It is also fortified with calcium and vitamin D, which are vital to maintaining strong bones and teeth.
17. Almond Creamer
Almond milk and almond creamer are both dairy-free alternatives made from almonds, but they have some key differences in terms of their ingredients, consistency, and usage.
Almond creamer is a thicker and creamier version of almond milk. It typically contains a higher concentration or ratio of almonds to achieve the rich, velvety texture.
I love to add this lush creamer to my morning coffee, and it pairs just as beautifully with tea, so you must try this Almond Cow recipe right away.
The Jalapeño Lime Orange Infusion is a unique drink that blends the zesty flavors of lime and orange with the spicy kick of jalapeño. This bold and harmonious flavor fusion provides a taste experience that is both invigorating and memorable.
This Almond Cow recipe is incredibly hydrating and perfect for quenching thirst on hot and humid days. All the ingredients going into this drink are rich in Vitamin C, which is definitely a plus.
While this infusion is delightful on its own, you may also use it as a base for making various other drinks. For instance, mix it with sparkling water to create a fizzy mocktail, or blend it with ice for a spicy citrus slushie.
19. Chocolate Milk
If you’re looking for a dairy-free alternative to traditional chocolate milk, this Almond Cow recipe provides a creamy and delicious option without any lactose or animal-derived ingredients.
Compared to many dairy-based chocolate milk options, chocolate almond milk is typically lower in calories, making it a suitable choice for weight watchers. Almond milk is packed with essential nutrients and healthy fats; the addition of chocolate makes this drink both indulgent and nutritious.
Beyond sipping it on its own, chocolate almond milk can be used in smoothies, coffee, baking, or over cereal and oatmeal for a chocolaty twist.
The Vegan Lemon Cheesecake Infusion is the perfect drink for dessert lovers like myself. It is a unique and creative beverage that captures the essence of a creamy and tangy lemon cheesecake in liquid form.
This Almond Milk recipe combines the sharp flavors of lemon with the smoothness of a cheesecake, all while being entirely plant-based and dairy-free. As a result, we get a marvelous rich beverage that is seemly for vegans and those with dairy sensitivities.
The infusion offers a healthier and lighter alternative to traditional cheesecake while satisfying your dessert cravings.
Strawberry Coconut Limeade is a beverage that instantly (but, virtually) transports you to a tropical paradise. The refreshing blend of flavors evokes thoughts of palm trees, sandy beaches, and the gentle breeze of a warm sunny day.
The sweetness of ripe strawberries is a nice contrast to the zesty lime, and coconut water beautifully complements the fruity flavors.
Strawberries are a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants, while coconut provides essential minerals like potassium and magnesium. This limeade not only hydrates but also offers a boost of healthful nutrients.
“Power Wellness Shot” is a general term used for a concentrated beverage designed to provide a quick and powerful boost of nutrients and health benefits. Make this Almond Cow recipe at the beginning of your day to get rid of all the fatigue and laziness.
Remember that this wellness shot is meant to supplement a healthy diet and lifestyle and not replace a balanced diet. You may consume these shots on their own or add them to smoothies, juices, and other beverages for an extra nutrient kick.
23. CocoCash™ Milk
CocoCash™ Milk is a blend of shredded coconut and cashews that can be used to make deliciously creamy milk every time. It’s a luscious treat prepared by placing coconut shreds, cashews, dates/maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt in the filter basket of the Almond Cow machine.
This milk is a nutrient powerhouse and easy to digest, so definitely try it if you have a sensitive stomach. It contains healthy fats (MCTs), which lower cholesterol levels and support heart health.
You may use CocoCash™ as a milk replacement in all kinds of beverages, cereal, baking, and cooking. It is a promising alternative to dairy milk for those looking to adopt a plant-based or lactose-free lifestyle.
