I really want to buy some aMYLK. Where can I find your products?
If you live in the Portland area and are looking for home delivery, MilkRun has you covered. MilkRun has an expansive delivery zone, but if your zip code isn't listed, or you don't see the flavor you desire, never fear! You can order on amylkshop.com for courier service (fee applies) or for free pick up at one of our farmers market locations. Just be sure to select your preference under shipping at checkout.
You can also find aMYLK at Providore Fine Foods inside the Rubinette Produce section. Providore is located in SE Portland just off Sandy Blvd.
The best way to get aMYLK (IMO) is to find us at one of our Farmers Markets. We are at Portland Farmers Market at PSU, Beaverton Farmers Market and Lake Oswego Farmers market every Saturday and Portland Farmers Market at King every Sunday during market season with the exception of January & February. Check with the market for times as they vary.
Does aMYLK ship across states?
Yes! We have recently started shipping nationally and we are getting better and better at it! If you want to ship aMYLK, it is easiest to ship in quantities of 4 with bottles of the same size. If your order is very large, email me and we can chat about how to best accommodate you.
You can select 2 day shipping at check out. We will ship the same day that we produce. Please allow up to 6 days to receive your order as we are only shipping on Mondays and Wednesdays right now. If you want your mylk overnighted to you please email me and we will make it happen.
Can I return my bottles?
I am so glad that you want to return your bottle. As an extra incentive, I've decided to offer $.50 off your next purchase for every sparkly clean reusable bottle that I receive. Please sterilize them in your dishwasher prior to returning them. We will sterilize them again, but this keeps our staff safe while handling.
Unfortunately my other vendors can't offer you an incentive discount, so be sure to return them to me at the Farmers Market.
If the bottle is not clean, it's hard to reuse and takes a lot of time for us to clean and sterilize. For that reason, we will only give discounts for clean, reusable bottles.
Is aMYLK Vegan?
My regular line up of mylks all fall into a vegan profile, however, I do sometimes have specials which I feature online and at markets that are not vegan. For example, I sometimes add raw honey or crushed pearls for added nutrients and health benefits.
aMYLK evolved out of my passion for living a healthier lifestyle and that included eating more plants and eliminating dairy from my diet. I do not personally identify as vegan, but rather "mostly" plant-based. Read the ingredients carefully and please ask before sampling if you have dietary concerns. We are very respectful of all diet choices at aMYLK.
What is the shelf life of aMYLK?
What, you mean you were able to stop yourself from drinking your aMYLK all at once? Good for you!
If you are curious about how long your mylk will last, read on...
aMYLK is raw and unpasteurized and therefore has a short shelf life. I designed my mylks to be this way purposely. I believe that food should spoil, not last for weeks or months. In my opinion, foods that have long shelf lives only benefit the corporations who make them and tend to be lacking in vital nutrients.
I don't add any gums or emulsifiers or preservatives, so expect it to spoil if you wait too long. Separation is natural and is not indicative of spoilage.
You should expect your mylk to last between 5-7 days from production. Keep it refrigerated between 36-38 degrees. We have date stamped your bottle with a best by date which means you should drink it before that day. Your mylk may spoil more rapidly if it has been exposed to bacteria. Keep your refrigerator cold and clean and never drink from the bottle. Also, keep in mind that in warmer months your mylk will spoil faster than it would in the winter. The rule of thumb is, if it smells sweet, it's probably still fresh.
Can I freeze aMYLK?
Yes! Just be sure to pour your aMYLK into an ice cube tray before freezing. I learned this the hard way. Glass will shatter if frozen. If you make aMYLK ice cubes, you can defrost a few overnight in your fridge in a jar and shake it the next morning. This will definitely extend your shelf life!
Does aMYLK froth well for lattes and such?
Absolutely! I am in love with a product by Breville (I'm not affiliated in any way) and I use it at least twice a day to heat and froth my own aMYLK for use in lattes and adaptogenic elixirs at home. I have found that my plain flavors like almond and hazelnut seem to froth the best, but they all froth beautifully. If you are looking for stiff peak foam, try my plain almond.
