Founded on the desire to create the best tasting Almond Mulk,
The Mulk Co also strives to create the most natural, cleanest tasting, and purest Almond Mulk under the Cali sun!
I started The Mulk Co on a whim! I was day-dreaming one day wondering what I would drink as a kiddo instead of dairy milk (I loved the stuff!) had I known how bad the methane gas that cows emitted was for the environment. I had always loved almonds and had just been given a shiney-new Vitamix as a graduation gift. That world of nut milks was just a beckoning me..
Armed as a self-taught chef, I decided I was gonna super-power my way to creating a plant-based milk that rivaled the dairy milk of my childhood memories. The goal: to be as gratifying but healthier, as nostalgic but less harmful to the environment but also to impact mass dairy farming and the harsh conditions that cows are subjected to. With chocolate being my first flavor to lead the way, this is (in a nutshell) how and why The Mulk Co began.
Mulking it.. like no udder!

Frequently asked questions
What is Mulk?
Mulk is a dairy-alternative milk made from almonds–and sun-kissed, Californian ones at that!
What makes Mulk different from other almond milks?
Mulk is a fresh, cold-pressed, plant-based milk made from natural ingredients. It contains no additives, binders, fillers, gums, preservatives, or other ingredients that you don`t recognize. Unlike store-bought almond milks, you can actually taste the almonds in Mulk!
Where can I get it?

What almonds do you use?
We use the sweetest Cali almonds sourced regionally from the Central Valley. Why would we increase our carbon footprint by importing when 80% of the worlds supply is grown in our backyard!
Why should I drink Mulk?
Because it comes in several flavors that are darn delicious!
Because it`s darn nutritious! We sprout our almonds to maximize inherent benefits which include plant-based protein, calcium and tons of vitamin E. Mulk is also ideal for lactose-intolerant consumers seeking dairy-free options or for vegans, health seekers and environmentally conscious consumers. Did we mention that Mulk is darn delicious ;)
What are the benefits of an almond Mulk over dairy?
Unlike dairy milk, Mulk is lactose-free and easy to digest as well as cholesterol-free making it heart-healthy. There are no added hormones and antibiotics to worry about and it is much lower in calories! Mulk is cold-pressed and never heat-treated leaving inherent nutrients intact.
Don’t almond trees take a ton of water to grow?
Yup they do, but so do the crops grown to feed the dairy cows, in addition to the water required to run the farm and hydrate the livestock. And we have not yet started on the greenhouse gasses cows emit into the air. . . so almond trees still take way less water than required to run a dairy farm.
Why call it Mulk?
I’m South African…it’s the way it sounds when I say “milk!” It also solves the issue with the dairy-industry, who has lobbied against plant-based milk producers from describing their product as “milk.”
What is the shelf life?
Our Mulks last 7 days, refrigerated – open or closed.
