Hopps and Woolf Nut Milk Maker

I was so hyped when Hopps & Woolf contacted me, looking to collaborate – I simply LOVE plant-based milks (can’t even remember when I last drank cow milk) but they’re very expensive, and so as a student, it can be a bit of a squeeze for my budget. That’s why I was thrilled to try out the Hopps & Woolf Milk Maker, since it makes a massive batch (about 1L) of nut milk within just 25 minutes and is SO MUCH cheaper! The cheapest carton-ed milks cost £1.40 per litre and contains only 2% almonds; yet with a Hopps & Woolf Milk Maker, you can make a litre for 50p and it contains 8%! That’s less than half the price but three times the almond content.

Another reason why it’s much better to make your OWN nut milk is that it will contain none of the preservatives, thickeners or sweeteners you find in cartoned nut milk. The Hopps & Woolf Milk Maker gently pasteurises the milk so that it naturally lasts longer – for a week. It’s also very versatile, almond milk may be all the rave at the minute, but with the Hopps & Woolf Milk Maker, you can whip up almost anything which suits your tastebuds! You can use any nuts (such as hazelnut/ cashew nut/ peanut/ coconut), soya, oats, hemp seeds and more. I also like to add dates, cinnamon, vanilla or cacao for a fantastic natural flavour ❤ I share below two of my favourite recipes using the Hopps & Woolf Milk Maker but to find more recipes to inspire your milk making, click here or seach ‘hopps and woolf’ in the side bar or scroll down to the ‘homemade milk’ section of my recipe page.
