Easy To Make Vanilla Cinnamon Almond Milk Recipe
I have always wanted to try making my own almond milk and was so excited to learn how easy it is to do (and how delicious it tastes).
Almond milk is a wonderful alternative for people who have intolerances to dairy and soy, or for vegans who would rather opt out of animal products entirely. Contrary to popular belief, this doesn’t mean that people who consume almond milk will be deficient in nutrients, however; in fact, consuming almond milk can help fight against coronary heart disease, and provides many other benefits as well. Potassium, a key mineral found in almonds, also improves heart health, acting as a vasodilator and reducing tension and strain on the heart. People unfamiliar with plant-based eating often wonder how vegans get enough calcium without drinking milk, but a number of studies have demonstrated that dairy consumption actually does the opposite of what we have long been told: that dairy is necessary for bone health. Extensive research has shown that populations which consume the highest quantity of dairy also report the highest instances of bone fractures and osteoporosis. (Check out this article that reveals the horrible truth of the dairy industry in 5 minutes.) Almond milk helps combat the deterioration of bones by providing our bodies with 30 percent of the recommended daily amount of calcium, as well as 25 percent of the recommended amount of vitamin D. Vitamin D helps reduce your risk for arthritis and osteoporosis, all while helping your immune system. What’s more, calcium and Vitamin D work synergistically to give us healthy bones and teeth. So let’s make some nut milk and give our body the goodness it needs! *If your dates are dry/stiff, soak them in hot water for 30 minutes before use and then drain well. You can also use another sweetener of your choice, like maple syrup or honey. Almond milk isn’t the only amazing alternative you should look into: check out this article about the benefits of hemp milk! This recipe comes courtesy of Oh She Glows.
