In our family, we love it so much that we have swapped it out completely in our house. It’s dairy free and very creamy. We use it in our Coffee Pod Machine with great results.
Alex from Daily Super Food Love is a fan of Almond Milk too. Her infographic outlines some excellent health benefits and why you should be making the switch. It’s Lactose free, has no antibiotics or hormones, is free of animal byproducts and is high in Omega Fatty Acids. It can also be used as a base for Smoothies Recipes too.
Please note that you will need to soak your Almonds for at least 8 hours prior to using them. Be sure to take this into consideration when you are making this recipe.
