Little by little and thanks to the participation of the Vegan Milker community we are collecting tricks to make pulp pressing easier. Whether they are regular Vegan Milker users or people who come to our stand casually at a fair, their ideas enlighten us, they are very logical and practical contributions that we appreciate very much.
We hope to continue to enjoy such a friendly and resourceful audience for many years to come.
Let’s start with the first trick!
Trick 1: “Express” filtering of the milk
In these cases, before putting in the mortar for the final pressing, we stir the pulp with a wooden spoon in order to make the sieving process easier. Today’s tip substitutes the use of the wooden spoon.
We got this idea from a Vegan Milker user during a vegan fair. We were making almond milk and just when we were sieving it, one of the people who was watching our demonstration suggested this trick and we thought it was a brilliant idea! I don’t know why we didn’t think of it before!
What you need to do is, once you have removed the filter glass, instead of using the wooden spoon, keep mixing the pulp with the hand mixer. This way we produce enough centrifugal force to make the milk or juice retained in the pulp go through the filter quickly and easily. You can see how it works in this video.
To finish the sieving process, we press the pulp (which will already be semi-dry) with the Vegan Milker mortar.
Trick 2: Pressing the pulp on a table
This other trick we are going to discuss below was sent to us by an anonymous Youtube comment. When we read it, it seemed like the most logical thing in the world, but then again, the daily hustle and bustle that dominates in small businesses absorbs us so much that sometimes we are not able to see what we have in front of us.
The trick is the following: it is a tip to avoid pressing the pulp in suspension and to be able to do it more comfortably with the filter resting inside the container.
At the end of grinding with the hand blender, pass the resulting liquid in the Vegan Milker to another container. Then place the filter correctly in its natural position for which it was designed and you will be able to press with the mortar COMFORTABLY ON THE TABLE. You may have to repeat the operation of emptying the Vegan Milker tank again if the result of the extraction is abundant, but you will get every last drop without effort or risk of spilling it all over the floor.
We are so excited about these little discoveries!
We’re sure that there are more Vegan Milker tips worth sharing out there.
