Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade almond milk is one of the staples in my kitchen. I used to buy it, but there is just too much artificial stuff added to the store bought almond milk. So couple years ago I decided to make one at home. I was improvising, but came up with this super easy, yet delicious recipe. All you need are three ingredients. Soaked almonds, sweetener (in my case soaked dates) and water. You can skip the sweetener, or add a different one, but dates are the right thing for me, as I try to eat as little processed foods as I can. It is also up to you how much of sweetener do you use, just don’t go overboard with it.

Almond milk is great plant based milk and can substitute to any other milk. It is a lot healthier than normal dairy milk. It’s low in sodium and it contains healthy fats. I like to add it to my coffee, smoothies, or make healthy hot chocolate with it.

Almond milk is also recommended to people who want to lose weight. That is because a cup of almond milk contains only 50-60 calories, opposed to normal whole milk, which contains about 140 calories.

Health Benefits:

Almonds

Almonds are full of vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, calcium, protein and fiber. They are also great source of healthy fats. Although almonds are high in fat, it is proven that they help with weight loss. People who eat nuts at least 3 times a week are thinner than those who never eat nuts. Almond are recommended to eat while learning, because they contain riboflavin and L-carnitine, which boost brain activity, and also reduce chances of Alzheimer’s disease. They will also make your bones and teeth stronger. Plus, they lower bad cholesterol levels and reduce heart attack risk. Almond are also known to reduce chances of cancer and many other similar diseases.

They are great snack before workout, because they can boost your energy level. That is why they are so popular among athletes.
