The personal trainer turned professional milkman is not shy about his special advantage in this city of moo-vers and shakers. “I capitalize on my looks to get clients,” Acosta, 40, who is single, tells The Post.

And customers can’t wait for the shaggy-haired delivery guy to get their lattes steaming.

“He’s such a hunk,” longtime customer Lia Shire, of the Upper West Side, tells The Post.

“I have not bought milk or eggs from a grocery since I started with him,” adds the married mom, who says she’s referred smitten friends.

Acosta, a FiDi resident, co-founded Manhattan Milk in 2006, along with business partner Matt Marone. The pair bottle and deliver country-fresh cow juice to eager clients across four boroughs and New Jersey. A single gallon costs $8, though some families spill up to $100 per week on the single-herd, grass-fed, low-temperature pasteurized milk from an upstate New York farm. (Delivery is included with a $25 order minimum, with items such as heavy cream, eggs and New York state maple syrup also available.)

Even though Manhattan Milk has a few competitors, Acosta says he’s proof that milk “does a body good.”

“I had to drink it with every meal since growing up,” says Acosta, who was raised in Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan, where he studied pre-law. Now, he downs a glass of whole milk before his daily workouts and chugs chocolate milk chasers after pumping iron at the gym.

That’s not the only way Acosta stays buff. He helps hand-deliver up to 600 cases of milk a day. Prep at the Westchester warehouse often starts at 11 p.m. before he’s on the road to get into Manhattan by 1 a.m. to make corporate deliveries. He shows up at private residences after dawn.

The udder-ly demanding all-nighters can take a toll, especially when his clients expect him to stick around and chat in the morning: “Being the face of the company has its repercussions. They want to talk to you all the time,” he says.

And although Manhattan Milk employs other delivery guys, he knows who his clients want to see him at their doors bright and early.

“Do people want it from me? 110%,” he says. “I don’t take vacations.”

While he does get hit on by eager customers, Acosta says he keeps things professional, even when his Instagram DMs are getting flooded. “I keep my head down and make my deliveries,” he says.

He even thinks crushes have cost him some of his regulars. “There were a few instances when we had cancellations, and I think [jealous husbands] are the reason why. I had that happen with training, too. You have wives who train with you and the minute the husband sees you — no more sessions.”

Acosta, who had a brief but memorable role on the “Real Housewives of Orange County” when he was linked to cast member Kelly Dodd, insists that there’s no real dating stigma to being a modern-day milkman.

“Being a milkman is a badge of honor,” he says.

But he confesses he has a dating dealbreaker of his own — namely women who don’t drink milk. “I wouldn’t trust them,” he says.

The nation’s power supply crisis and the prospect of rising prices are frustrating northern Victorian farmers.
