Benefits of Almond Milk :: The New “Moo”

It’s time to Moo-ve On Over!

Almond milk is a light, crisp and nutty milk alternative.  It is all-natural and in many cases is healthier than milk.

As you read the health benefits of almond milk, you will see why I prefer it to cow’s milk or soy milk. It is also very easy to make your own almond milk.

Benefits of Almond Milk

  • All-Natural :: Does not contain any hormones.  (Even organic cow’s milk still contains some hormones)
  • Strong Bones :: High in Calcium & Vitamin D (Doesn’t just help with strong bones, but also with teeth, muscles contraction and blood clotting.)
  • Healthy Skin :: High in Vitamin E which builds immunity, and brings you healthy skin and eyes
  • Healthy Muscles :: Contains Riboflavin and Iron.  These ingredients help our muscles absorb more protein.
  • Low Glycemic Index :: No added sugar (Especially good for diabetics)
  • Weight Management :: Lower in calories (Yes, even less than fat-free milk.)
  • Dairy Free :: Also lactose and gluten-free

Substitute Almond Milk for milk in smoothies, coffee, or any recipe that calls for milk.  Also, it’s great for road trips because it doesn’t have to be refrigerated.

I usually use Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze when I am in a hurry, or make my own (Click here to learn to make your own almond milk in under 5 minutes.)
