Today I’m sharing an Almond Cow review on their plant-based milk machine, and how to make homemade almond milk in 30 seconds. Say WHAT!? Homemade almond milk in just 30 seconds? It’s unprecedented isn’t it?
You might already know that I am a sucker for homemade almond milk. I absolutely love the stuff! And much prefer making my own than buying store bought. Homemade almond milk is so much richer, creamier and more lush than store bought. Like a fine wine you want to savour each sip, and let it linger on your taste-buds.
Typically, I make homemade almond milk by adding all the ingredients to my blender, and then passing the liquid through a nut milk bag. I squeeze to get out all the juices while holding in the pulverized nuts. The total process usually takes 10 minutes, which isn’t that long considering you’re left with liquid gold.
But, we might not all have time for the homemade almond milk making shenanigans, and I get it. We are busy people with things to do and people to see. Some of us have kids, some of us have work deadlines keeping us at the office until ungodly hours, and some of us frankly might not want to spend their extra time squeezing nuts for almond milk. Fortunately for you folks, there is a solution to getting homemade almond milk in just 30 seconds.
Compliments to Almond Cow, who created a machine designed specifically for making homemade almond milk, you can have the creamy liquid in just 30 seconds with the click of a button. (Or any kind of plant-based milk you wish).
So, let me share this Almond Cow review to see if this milk machine is suitable for you.
It doesn’t get more simple than that! The end results is a creamy homemade almond milk without fuss or straining (literally). It’s a dream machine for us homemade almond milk lovers.
But, this Almond Cow review wouldn’t be a review without listing some pros and cons. And so before you make the purchase I want to focus on how this machine compares to using a nut milk bag, or buying store bought. So here are the pros and cons I found to using Almond Cow.

The answer depends on you and your needs. If time and ease are important to you then the Almond Cow is a clear winner. But if money and space is of importance, and you’re willing to put in a bit more effort for the same result then a nut milk bag is for you. But both are definitely better than store bought milk in terms of quality, cost, taste and space – trust me, once you try the homemade stuff you’ll never go back.
If you’re undecided, I’d recommend to first try making homemade almond milk using a nut milk bag. You can buy one off amazon for $6-12. Or, you can even sub in a pair of tights or a thin t-shirt if you don’t want to purchase a nut milk bag (although it’s a bit more finicky). Then, you can see for yourself whether you like straining it, or if you find it too much effort. If you then realize it’s too much effort you’ve only spent $6 to be really sure that the Almond Cow is for you.
If the Almond Cow machine is for you then I can offer you a small discount for $15 OFF with the discount code “TWOSPOONS” at checkout. (this discount code is never to expire).
Whether you’re still contemplating or not, it’s definitely worth checking out Almond Cow’s website for different types of plant-based milks you can create using their machine. They have a lot of really creative ideas! And generally I love what this company is doing in terms of supporting sustainable living, minimizing waste, and empowering us to make healthier food choices. Best of all they are making it EASY to make positive change with their hassle free machine. It’s companies like these I’m rooting for.
I do hope that this post is useful in making your decision. Whether it’s purchasing the Almond Cow, or using a nut milk bag, one thing is for sure: homemade almond milk will change your drinking game.
Cheers to that.
