Benefits Of Almonds

Most importantly, they are heart-healthy; they contain monounsaturated fats and no cholesterol. Mono-saturated fats are healthy fats known to reduce LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and prevent heart disease.

Almonds also contain Vitamin E, an antioxidant beneficial in neutralizing free radicals.

Studies showed that almonds will control the blood sugar level and prevent blood sugar surges. Therefore eating almonds are beneficial in preventing diabetes.

How To Make Almond Milk?

Making your own almond milk is quite simple and tastes delicious too. I use it as a non-dairy alternative in my smoothies, granola, muffins, etc. or basically anywhere milk would normally be used.

  1. Sort and soak almonds in water for 8 hours or overnight (I find that when I soak the almonds they are easier to blend and digest better).
  2. Rinse almonds, place in a blender with water. Blend until smooth and creamy. 
  3. Strain almond milk through a fine-mesh strainer or Nut Milk Bag. Save the almond pulp to add to your baked goods.
  4. Place the almond milk back into the blender along with dates. You can soften dates by soaking in warm water for 10 minutes. Add vanilla, and sea salt blend again until smooth.
  5. Almond milk should be stored in a container with a tight-fitting lid and kept for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
