Regular milk? Yawn. These days, everyone and their grandmother is all about alternative dairy like oat milk and cashew milk. And one of the most popular choices is creamy almonds. Which is why the recent addition of bottle-your-own almond milk machines to Whole Foods is pretty damn exciting.
The NüMilk machines were announced late last year and will soon be coming to grocery stores around the country.
Here’s how it works: You grab an empty bottle next to the machine and decide whether you want unsweetened almond milk (just almonds and filtered water) or sweetened almond milk (almonds, water and a hint of organic maple syrup). Then, you press a button and wait as the machine grinds the almonds and mixes it with water (and sweetener, if that’s what you want). You’ll be holding a bottle of freshly made almond milk in less than 30 seconds. Each bottle of almond milk costs $3.99.
But if that sounds like too much work, there’s also the option of picking up already-bottled almond milk in the refrigerated section for the same price.
