Description Ingredients Recipes

Elmhurst 1925 is a non-dairy beverage made from whole nuts.

What Is Milked?
Milked (verb): to draw something from. The work “milked” best describes the unique process of using water to separate and draw out the nutrients from the nuts. These valuable nutrients, once released, re-combine naturally to make a very creamy and smooth beverage without the use of any added emulsifiers or thickeners. Elmhurst's process allows them to use more nuts, which means a more delicious and nutritious nutmilk. Free from: gluten, dairy, soy, lactose, high-fructose corn syrup, carrageenan or any other gums, stabilizers, or emulsifiers.

Current Varieties:

  • Milked Almonds offers a perfectly balanced flavor with a creamy richness that is truly satisfying and nutritious. It is perfect for drinking straight out of the glass!
  • Milked Cashews has an irresistibly creamy and subtle flavor that’s perfect over cereal, in smoothies, in coffee or enjoyed straight from the carton.
  • Milked Hazelnuts is a delicious lactose-free, vegan alternative to dairy. One taste of the irresistible creaminess and you’ll see for yourself!
  • Milked Walnuts is a light and creamy dairy alternative that is both delicious and nutritious. Try it today on cereals, in recipes or in your smoothies.
  • Milked Oats is made with 20 grams whole grain per glass, sourced from Manitoba’s vast expanse, and with more nutrition (and fewer ingredients) than that other guy. 
  • Milked Peanut Chocolate hits hard with eight grams of peanut protein per glass – the same as chocolate dairy milk. 

From A Historic American Dairy
“My name is Henry Schwartz. In 1925, my father and uncle founded Elmhurst, a New York family dairy. For over 90 years, we took great pride in producing natural and nutritious milk. I believe nondairy milk should be just as natural and nutritious. It shouldn’t be nut-flavored water with additives to make it look like milk. Elmhurst gives you the delicious flavor and nutrition of a handful of nuts in every glass.” – Henry Schwartz, Founder

Roasted Pumpkin Hazelnut Risotto


3 cups Elmhurst Milked Hazelnuts
1½ cups Arborio Rice
½ cup Onion, Chopped
1 Tbsp. Garlic, Minced
8-oz. Canned Pumpkin Puree
½ cup Feta Cheese
½ cup Radicchio, Sliced
2 tbsp. Sage, Chopped
1 tbsp. Vegetable Oil

  2. On a greased baking pan, spread out the pumpkin puree evenly.

  4. In a large sauté pan, heat the vegetable oil and add onions. Sweat the onions until translucent.
  5. Add the garlic to the pan and sauté for another minute.
  6. Add the Arborio rice to the pan and toast for about 2 minutes.
  7. Add 1 cup of the Elmhurst Milked Hazelnuts, stirring constantly so that the rice does not stick to the bottom.

Where to Buy

I loved it. Tried the almond milk. Was great plain and used in cereal. I also made banana smoothies with it and my picky kids loved it. I would love to try more flavors.

Variety tried: Almond

Me and my daughter tried the peanut chocolate and we loved it. The flavor is awesome!!! I cant wait to try the other flavors and I'm not much of a milk drinker.

Variety tried: Peanut Chocolate

I love this brand of almond milk! It’s by far the cleanest ingredients from any other on the market and tastes superior compared to all other brands that I’ve tried!

Variety tried: Almond

I am sorry to say that I did not like this unsweetened almond milk. I have made my own unsweetened almond milk, and I have tried other brands. Neither tasted like this does. My favorite brand is Califia. I poured some of this into a glass, and in my opinion it just tastes weird. Before I tried it, I liked that it only had two ingredients, but I will not drink the rest of it. I would like to add that I’m not really a picky person either when it comes to food. Also I think the price in the store was kind of steep for the quantity.

Variety tried: Unsweetened Almond

I love this brand! I've tried both the almond milk and the cashew. I tried the unsweetened versions and I love them. I use them in cereal, in coffee, for baking etc. I definitely recommend.
