7 Benefits Of Almond Milk


A few years ago, soy milk seemed to be all the rage. We’ve all heard about the benefits of soy milk. Since it’s become so popular, some studies have shown a lot of negative aspects as well. The search for the best non-dairy milk continues. Other popular options are coconut, rice and almond. Almond milk has become a staple in most grocery stores. Let’s take a look at why.

1. Heart Healthy

Almond milk is healthy. It’s high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, which helps lower triglycerides (blood fat). It also has no cholesterol or saturated fats.


2. Low in Calories

Drinking any type milk daily can certainly add on extra calories. Almond milk has fewer calories than dairy milk (including skim milk) or soy silk milk, so you can enjoy your glass of milk without worrying about your weight.



3. Light & Crisp Taste

Some people just don’t like the taste of dairy milk and some complain of a “filmy” aftertaste. Almond is described as having a crisp and light taste and comes in different flavors, like original, vanilla and chocolate.


4. Lactose-Free

While some of you don’t mind the taste of dairy milk, you physically can’t drink it without getting sick. For those of you who are lactose intolerant, almond milk is definitely a good pick.


5. High in Vitamin E

Vitamin E has many health benefits from its antioxidant properties, but it also has some beauty benefits too. You can get 50% of your daily amount of vitamin E in one serving, which helps keep your skin glowing and your hair shining.


6. Vegan Friendly-Plant Based

For those of you who are vegan but enjoy your morning cereal, try almond milk. No animals were hurt or used in the process.


7. Easy to Make

There seems to be growing concern about the hormones and steroids used in the cows that produce store bought milk. While it’s hard to have a milk cow grazing in your front yard, it’s probably a sure bet you can get some almonds and water. For detailed instructions, just search online for almond milk recipes.
