Almond milk is my favorite when it comes to "milk substitutes". It has the best flavor, is great for baking and tasty in cereal. It also packs a good nutritional punch, check out these benefits: *Good source of magnesium, therefore it's excellent for bone health. *Loaded with manganese, selenium, and vitamin E. All are great for immune health, and help prevent cell damage. *Packed with UNsaturated fat, meaning it's great for heart health. *Almond skins are a good source of flavonoids, also great for a healthy heart. *Rich in potassium, which helps you maintain a healthy blood pressure. *Lots of healthy protein, which helps the body's growth and repair.
