Those first few lines might raise a few questions. What is an Almond Cow and what is banana bread milk?
A banana bread milk is made with a few ingredients and creates that cozy banana bread feeling. This milk is made with the Almond Cow and contains typical banana bread ingredients such as pecans, cashews, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
Banana Bread Milk
Image the creamy sweetness of banana bread, but then cold or warm and served in a glass. FYI: this is THE BEST oil-free vegan banana bread and it combines so wonderfully well with this banana bread milk.
You can decide how sweet this drink will be. Simply adjust the amount of maple syrup and Medjool dates in this recipe to get it as sweet as you wish. If you are using a very ripe banana, you might find this drink also a bit sweeter than when using an unripe banana.
This creamy comforting milk can be served hot or cold and with the nuts and spices it is the perfect drink for fall and winter.
The best way to describe this drink is a hint of banana bread with the frothy consistency of a nut milk.
The Almond Cow
This banana bread milk is made with an Almond Cow. A what? Let me show you! An Almond Cow is like a blender/coffee grinder and filter in one. It is designed specifically for almonds and other hard tree nuts. It is made with durable stainless steel blades. But it is not just a (coffee) blender! The Almond Cow also comes with a filter. So while blending nuts, such as almonds, it is also circulating water rapidly through the filter basket.
Can I also use a blender?
I compare it a little bit with an Instant Pot versus the stove. You can make this recipe with a blender and a nutmilk bag such as in this recipe. It’s just a different method when you use an Almond Cow. Different, but the outcome might be the same.
The difference is that the Almond Cow separates the pulp from the milk in the machine. The Almond Cow is also powerful so you can use unsoaked nuts.
In a blender you can use unsoaked nuts too, but you will have to make sure to use a high power blender to get the same frothy results.
