Elmhurst Dairy, provider of milk for New York City public schools, is shutting down after 100 years in business, citing a drop in demand for conventionally produced cow’s milk. In its heyday, Elmhurst Dairy processed nearly a million and a half gallons of milk a week. But these days, because of changing trends (including consumer awareness of the treatment of cows in the milk industry, as well as consumer concern about rBGH hormones, vet drugs, and environmental pollution), sales have seriously tanked. Elmhurst has decided they will cash in on dairy-free alternative market, which is set to reach a staggering $21.7 billion within the next six years.

To Celebrate the Public’s Demand for Non-Dairy Milks, I’m Offering a Special Deal on my new Nut Milks Recipe Making Class (Now on Video)!

The most delicious, creative, and affordable way to drink nut milks is to make them yourself, --in as many colors, flavors, and nutritional varieties, possible! And, I show you exactly how you can do this, in my fun new class, ‘How to Create Delicious, Dairy Free Nut Milks, in 10 Minutes or Less!

  • You can get my Not Milk…NUT MILKS class in either of these two places:

  • Go directly to my website store: (Get the class in a zip file that you can download, for $15.00)

  • (You can log-in to their learning platform at any time. Here, the class sells for $20.00, but I’ve included a discount code for you, so you can get it for $10.00!)

BTW: There’s a reason why my Nut Milks cookbook has remained a bestseller for more than three decades. I was the first cookbook author to turn basic, bland, non-descript nut milks into gourmet treats. Others have since followed in my footsteps. And, in fact, one person once wrote to tell me that he was inspired enough by my recipes to create a patented product! (I’m still waiting for my royalty check to show up! Ha!)

If you’re curious to know where I get my organic nuts and seeds, to prepare gourmet nut milks, one of my favorite places, is online. They have some of the freshest, most whole nuts I have ever purchased!

About is a family run business and has an interesting story to tell as well! On their website, the third generation representing this business writes:

“In 1929, on the brink of the Depression, our father and grandfather “Poppy” Sol took a bold step. 22 years old, he had already worked fulltime for 10 years to support his family. Yet he was ambitious, and wanted to live the American Dream and make the lives of everyone around him better. So, donning his best of suits and an assured smile on his face, Sol walked away from the bank with a loan to start his own business, the Newark Nut Company. The rest is history. He began selling premium bulk nuts and dried fruit at the popular Mulberry Street open-air market. Sol quickly developed a reputation for providing the very finest and freshest nuts available. Sol believed in choosing only the highest quality super colossal nuts from the world's best growers. He would then roast the nuts to perfection for a fresh, delicious flavor.”

Now, 88 years later, cousins Jeff and David run the business, which has been highlighted by Rachel Ray and Oprah, to name just a few fans.

To your health and culinary creativity!
