A couple of days ago when I shared the recipes of my Super Smoothies, I got many queries which interestingly, were mostly about the almond milk that I had used to make the smoothies. Where do I buy my Almond Milk from? Which is the best brand of Almond Milk to buy? Why do I use Almond Milk and not Dairy Milk? … Moreover, many such more queries.
Well, to answer your questions, let me just list down the benefits of Almond Milk.
– One cup of almond milk contains only 60 calories… so it is a great option for weight management.
– Almond milk has no cholesterol or saturated fats and is high in omega fatty acids, thus helping you manage blood pressure and heart diseases.
– Almond Milk contains 30% of the recommended daily amount of Calcium and 25% of the recommended daily amount of Vitamin D.
– Almond Milk is enriched with 50% of the daily amount of recommended Vitamin E with anti-oxidant properties; it can help you say goodbye to skin problems forever.
– Almond Milk is low in Carbs and thus helps in controlling Blood Sugar.
The benefits are much more, but I believe these should answer most of your queries. However, coming to back to your query of which is the best brand of Almond Milk, if you believe me, the best brand is the one that you make at home. I never buy my almond milk from the market and always make it on my own in my kitchen. Click on the link below and watch how I make it at home.
In my last write-up, I have suggested a couple of smoothies that you can make using Almond Milk (http://theumashow.com/smoothie-recipes-power-breakfast/). Today, I am going to add up to that by giving you two very simple-to-make, yet super healthy recipes using Almond Milk.
Turmeric Latte has actually taken the world by storm and is one super healthy drink that everyone wants to lay his or her hands on. Also known as the Golden Milk, Turmeric Latte is great for your skin, healthy for your brain, delays Diabetes, reduces cholesterol, fights cancer and has much more such benefits. Hence, it is also known as ‘Super Food.’ The good news is, you can make this at home in just a few minutes.
Boil some freshly made almond milk. Once the milk comes to a boil, add some organic turmeric and a few cinnamon sticks for flavor and there you are, your turmeric latte is ready. You can add some honey or agave syrup for sweetness… your Super Food is ready for you.
The second simple, yet super recipe is Hot chocolate. It is one of my favorite drinks and a definitive mood booster.
Boil some almond milk, add some organic cocoa, and mix it well till the color turns dark. Your hot chocolate is ready. Simple isn’t it!
A perfect drink for the evening after a long and tiring day; and if you take my advice, it is better than any tea/coffee.
So these were my recipes for Almond Milk. I would want you to try it at home, and if you do so, don’t forget to write me with your experience. Also, I would love to know about your experiments and recipes with Almond milk. So do share your thoughts and experiences, because remember, the more we share, the more we care.
Love and Health,
