Almond milk in recent years is gaining more and more fans, not unfairly. First of all, it is an excellent alternative for those who can’t drink any other type of milk. But we should all think about including almond milk in our diet as its nutritional value is very high and the health benefits we will reap are enormous. It has a pleasant taste, it is delicious and you can consume it either plain or in your coffee, with cereals and in various recipes. However, those who are allergic to nuts need special attention and before you start consuming almond milk you should consult your doctor.
Almond milk as mentioned above has great nutritional value and is very beneficial for our body as it consists of many, valuable ingredients. It is rich in protein, minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium, contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins E, D and A, is rich in antioxidants and contains high levels of fiber. On the other hand, almond milk does not contain any lactose, cholesterol and sugar, which makes it ideal for those who want to lose weight. But because there are several brands on the market, be sure to always check the labels with the nutrients they contain, as in many cases there is added sugar.
Another advantage of almond milk is that you can make it yourself. All you need is 1 cup of raw almonds (without salt or oil) and 3 cups of water. Put the almonds in a bowl of water to soak for at least 5 hours (ideally let them soak overnight). Then strain and rinse the almonds with plenty of cold water. Put them in a blender together with the 3 cups of water and beat until a homogeneous mixture is created. Place the resulting mixture in a cotton towel in a large bowl to get the liquid. squeeze it with your hands and squeeze out as much liquid as possible (or you can use a strainer) and store in an airtight container. And your milk is ready!
