Almond milk is a nutritious, low-calorie drink that has become famous all around the world. It's great and suitable for those who cannot choose or refuse to drink fresh milk because of how it tastes. This almond milk is an age-old healthy secret to build up immunity in kids, improve eyesight, build stronger bones, remove constipation and provide adequate nutrition for picky eaters. It has a pleasant nutty flavor, and a creamy texture similar to regular milk.
Almond milk contains no cow’s milk or other animal products, making it a great option for people following a vegan diet and for those who are lactose intolerant unable to completely digest it, or probably allergic to any kind of milk. Usually, extra nutrients such as calcium, vitamin E, and vitamin D are added to it to boost its nutritional content. You can find almond milk in most supermarkets, usually in the health food section.
For your information, not all almond milk is the same. Homemade almond milk and certain brands might contain a much higher number of calories, depending on how many almonds were added to the mixture. If you have ever been struggling with a family refusing to have milk, then this recipe is a must-try. This almond milk is so delicious, creamy, flavorful, and refreshing that anyone will just love it. However, it is also very easy to make at home. All you need is a blender, some water, and a few more ingredients as I'll be sharing a quick almond milk recipe below for you to try at home.
