How to Make Healthy and Delicious Almond Milk at Home
The milk of almonds is an excellent alternative to cow’s milk, since they do not contain cholesterol, and consists 20% of protein.
In addition, this milk is a source of phosphorus, which we need so much for teeth and bones. It has four times more calcium than cow’s milk, 370 mg/0.013 oz of calcium per 100 grams/3.5 oz of the product! Do not forget potassium, zinc, copper, iron, vitamin B group and manganese.
It’s not difficult at all to prepare the almond milk. This can be done by every housewife, which has a blender or juicer.
To prepare the almond milk will need:
– Blender or juicer
– 1 cup of raw almonds, which you will find in health food stores
– 3-4 glasses of water; strainer
Soak the almonds in water overnight. In the morning spill the water. In the bowl of almonds pour clean (preferably bottled or filtered) water, 3-4 cup. After mixing in a blender, strain the milk through a strainer and pour into glass bottles. Keep it in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. You can sweeten with a little honey or add cinnamon, cocoa or vanilla.
Don’t throw the pulp, which remained after draining. With it you can prepare cakes, crackers, add it in the muesli, or dry out and get the almond flour. From pulp can make excellent moisturizing facial mask, if you add a little cream and honey. On clean skin, apply to face for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with water or wipe with a napkin. Your skin will thank you.
So, as you can see, the benefit of the almond milk is invaluable, because it contains a lot of nutrients, which are essential for maintaining the health and vitality of the body.
