Have you tried Almond Milk yet? If you haven’t, you are in for a delicious and nutritious treat! There are several alternatives to cow’s milk out there (soy milk being the most popular), but almond milk is slowly emerging as one of the tastiest choices. With half the calories of regular milk, it’s a fantastic option for people on a diet.
Almond milk is an extract of protein rich almonds and is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is created by finely grinding almonds together with water. Touted for it’s nutritional qualities, almond milk has been enjoyed for centuries. It was a staple in every Medieval Europe kitchen and has always been a popular beverage in the Middle East.
Lactose-free, of course, it’s great for those who have lactose intolerance or follow a strict vegan or raw-food diet. The taste is somewhat nutty and very similar to regular milk. They have several varieties out there, including vanilla and chocolate almond milk, that are perfect additions to smoothies. With only 40 calories per cup and a delicious vanilla flavor, my favorite is unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I use it all the time in my Blueberry Smoothies! Pick up a carton today and enjoy!
