Almond Milk

Almond milk is a beverage made from ground almonds, occasionally used as a substitute for dairy milk.

Unlike animal milk, almond milk contains neither cholesterol nor lactose. As it does not contain any animal products, it is acceptable to vegans and vegetarians who abstain from dairy products. Commercial almond milk products often come in plain, vanilla, or chocolate flavors and are sometimes enriched with vitamins. Almond milk can also be made at home by grinding almonds with water in a blender. Vanilla flavoring and sweeteners are often added.

Almond milk is slightly beige in colour and has a creamy texture and nutty taste. It is easy to make at home.

Nutrition

Almonds are rich in nutrients including fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, selenium, manganese, zinc, potassium, iron, phosphorus, tryptophan, copper, and calcium. "The UK Institute of Food Research found finely ground almonds contain potential probiotic properties that could help boost digestive health by increasing the levels of certain beneficial bacteria in the stomach".
