Almond milk is an excellent dairy milk alternative for those who are lactose intolerant or vegan, but that is not why I choose it regularly as my dairy milk substitute! It does taste great, better than cow’s milk, and works well in almost every recipe I have attempted that may have previously required dairy milk. Here are some of the reasons that I reach for almond milk over any others:
- Its very low calorie, only 60 calories per cup!
- Contains omega fatty acids which are great for you, and has no cholesterol or saturated fat.
- contains 30% of your daily recommended calcium requirement, and 25% of your vitamin D requirement, for healthy strong bones.
- It has 50% of your daily requirements for vitamin E, which is great for your skin.
