Elmhurst Milked, a 100% plant-based creamery based in New York, is expanding their range and continuing their success after switching the production from dairy milks to nuts and grains based alternatives in May 2017.

Elmhurst Milked, previously known as Elmhurst Dairy, added to their initial range of almond, cashew and hazelnut milks with walnut, brown rice and oat flavours, as well as unsweetened varieties which contain only nuts and water as ingredients. The latest additions to the line consists of two new flavours of peanut and peanut with chocolate. There is also a hemp flavour in development using hemp seeds grown by Elmhurst in New York.

The company is also launching ready-to-drink protein shakes in late 2018 and early 2019. These will be available in chocolate, banana chocolate and vanilla flavours and will contain between 15-20g of protein per serving.

According to CEO Henry Schwartz, they are also looking into developing a ‘rice-based hydration formula’, which is said to provide better and faster hydration than carbohydrates and electrolytes alone.

Elmhurst products are available online at Amazon and Elmhurst1925.com, as well as health food and supermarket chains such as Walmart and Whole Foods.
