Whether you're trying to limit your dairy intake or simply prefer the taste, you may be one of many people who've transitioned to a plant-based milk recently. From soy to almond to oat milk, these dairy alternatives have soared in popularity in the past few years—and now, there are tons of options to choose from. But if you're a fan of these vegan beverages, you know they typically come at a higher price point than regular whole milk, which is why some enthusiasts have started making their own plant-based milks at home.
Normally, this is a lengthy and messy process that includes straining the milk several times before it can be enjoyed. But Amazon shoppers have found a way to make fresh and delicious vegan milk in a flash: the Tribest Soyabella Nut Milk Maker. The handy gadget uses a helical grinding blade with a serrated edge to grind down soaked nuts, grains, and beans quickly and efficiently.
There are two different modes to choose from, both of which are activated by pushing a button at the top of the machine The mill mode pulverizes the ingredients into creamy liquids in mere minutes. Meanwhile, the milk function activates the built-in heater and can be used to whip up breakfast cereals, soups, and rice paste. The versatile kitchen appliance can even be converted into a coffee grinder when you pair it with certain accessories.

To buy: Tribest Soyabella Nut Milk Maker, $103 (originally $110) at amazon.com
The heating element is concealed, so you never have to worry about getting burned, and shoppers say it's so easy to use, they were able to start whipping up yummy beverages right away. "It is amazingly easy to use and the milk is so much better tasting than any almond milk you can buy at the store," wrote one. "Other than soaking the nuts, the actual preparation time is less than five minutes from start to finish. The basket/screen is easy to clean (a specialty brush is included with the machine) and the mesh is fine enough that the pulp doesn't get stuck. My Soyabella has paid for itself many times over. I would purchase the Soyabella again and I have recommended it to friends."
"This is a game changer," said another user. "It used to take me at least half an hour and a lot of steps (straining through muslin cloth) and clean-up to make almond milk. Now it takes me about 30 seconds to make the milk and clean-up is a breeze. Less mess and fuss. One cup of raw almonds (soaked in water for 1-2 days) makes about 1.5 cups of swelled almonds and almost two quarts of almond milk. I used to need two cups of raw almonds to make the same amount of milk. Never going back!"
The electric milk maker will set you back $103, which may sound like a lot, but it's actually cheaper than other similar appliances on the market. Plus, the one-time investment will save you money in the long run since you'll no longer have to splurge on expensive plant-based milk every week at the grocery store.
