Almond milk is rich in calcium, vitamin A, E, and D. The calcium rich milk provides the same amount per cup as cow’s milk and soy milk. One cup offers approximately 300 mg, meeting 30 percent of the DV for this major mineral.
According to WHfood’s, raw almond milk has more of the true organic vitamins, minerals, and nutrients than the alternative prepackaged almond milk.
An alternative to prepackaged, processed almond milk products, of course, is homemade almond milk. Here is a recipe for homemade almond milk.
1 cup almonds, soaked overnight
3 pitted dates
Pinch of salt
3 cups water
1. Combine almonds, pitted dates, salt, and water in a blender and blend on high for two minutes.
2. Strain through a cheesecloth-lined strainer into a large measuring cup or bowl. Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to three days.
