Elmhurst Milked Nuts: Pure, Creamy, Dairy-Free Milk Beverages

9

Perhaps you’ve heard of Elmhurst? It was a New York City dairy for more than 90 years, but they closed their doors for a big transition. Last year they re-emerged as a completely dairy-free company that now “milks” plants! This product line 180 has resulted in several cool milk beverages, including a full range of nut milks with very pure ingredient lists. They’re known simply as Elmhurst Milked Nuts.

Elmhurst Milked Nuts are some of the “cleanest” milk beverages on the market. They contain just 2 to 6 ingredients, depending on the variety, and are free of industrial stabilizers, emulsifiers, carrageenan, and other and gums. They also use more nuts per batch than most competitors. This results in richer fat contents, about 10 to 11 grams, and higher protein counts, about 3 to 6 grams, per cup.

Tasting Notes for Elmhurst Milked Nuts

To date, I’ve only sampled one Elmhurst variety. But I will update this post as we taste-test more. And as always, kindly share your own review of the Elmhurst Milked Nuts in the comments. It helps us all!

Milked Cashews

This is the closest to homemade cashew milk that I’ve ever tasted from a package. It’s lightly sweet with a pure cashew flavor. The consistency is slightly rich and creamy, but still quite drinkable. It does have a rustic vibe with a bit of a powdery finish. If you are used to homemade nut milks, then this won’t be surprising. But if you are accustomed to more processed milk beverages, it might seem a little less smooth.

Although this variety contains just a wee touch of sugar (2 grams per cup), it’s a little too sweet for savory applications. I’m hoping they come out with an Unsweetened version of the milked cashews.

  1. I just bought 3 varieties at Publix and I think these are heavenly. I just drank a glass of cashew milk without all kinds off additives. Calcium Carbonate? No thanks. These are absolutely delicious with pure ingredients. Amazing. Publix sells them for only 3.99!

  2. This is so neat! I have heard of Elmhurst before but never knew their back story. They are brilliant to re-open as a dairy-free company. There products sounds pretty delicious + I just may have to look in to them 🙂

  3. The oat milk tastes exactly like plain oats. Neutral and very lightly naturally sweet. Not my favorite simply because I like other milks a lot more, but it was good if oat milk is your thing. Powdery finish. The chocolate peanut is amazing, awesome warmed up as hot cocoa. I will be buying that one ocassionally.

  4. I tried the peanut milks at the Fancy Foods Show in January, and they’re both winners! Super sweet, creamy; kids will no doubt love them. The chocolate variety is like a liquid peanut butter cup.
