If you want a creamier milk, use less water and more coconut. If you want a lighter milk, use more water and less coconut. You can also add a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor.
Make sure to soak the coconut beforehand to soften it and ensure a smoother texture. You can also use warm water to speed up the soaking process.
Clean Almond Cow immediately after use to prevent residue buildup, and store it in a dry place. You can also use it to make other plant-based milks like almond or cashew milk.
