Almond Milk: The Elixir Of Beauty And Health

Dec 20, 10 Almond Milk: The Elixir Of Beauty And Health

We’ve already told you about the hazards of drinking cow’s milk because it is often altered beyond recognition worse than Heidi Montag’s face. Now let us introduce you to a tasty and nutritious alternative: almond milk. You probably thought almonds were only for turrones and mazapanes, right?  Wrong. The plethora of benefits almond milk has to offer will have you running to the nearest grocery store to stock up. Read up and become a convert:

  1. Plain almond milk has a very low caloric content, making it ideal for all the weight-conscious chicas out there. Which would pretty much be all of us, right?
  2. Zero cholesterol and low sodium make almond milk a very heart-friendly option, not to mention the potassium it contains promotes healthy blood pressure.
  3. It’s easy for our bodies to digest the low amount of sugar in almond milk and use it as energy instead of storing it as fat.
  4. With osteoporosis posing a serious threat to Latinas, it’s necessary to take every measure available to us to build strong bones. So get to chugging that leche de almendras (In chocolate flavor too!), which contains 30% of our recommended daily value of calcium and 25% of vitamin D, two nutrients essential to good bone health.
  5. Skin care made easy: a serving of almond milk contains 50% of our recommended daily value of Vitamin E, which you know by now is a powerful antioxidant that is crucial to maintaining young and healthy skin.
  6. The B vitamins and iron found in this miracle elixir help muscles absorb and use protein for energy, growth and repair, so you’ll get an extra boost when you’re pumping iron.

Just because you’re going dairy-free doesn’t mean you have to give up taste and nutrition. Make mami proud by making the best choice for your health!

    While wild almond species are toxic, domesticated almonds are not; Jared Diamond argues that a common genetic mutation causes an absence of glycoside amygdalin, and this mutant was grown by early farmers, “at first unintentionally in the garbage heaps, and later intentionally in their orchards”. ,

    Because almonds are naturally very nutritious, almond milk doesn’t need to be fortified. You can make almond milk yourself at home, and it will have the same nutritional value as the almond milk available commercially.

  3. Making almond milk is actually an incredibly old process. We learned about it in culinary school as part of our training in Classic French cuisine, but it was made and used long before the French transformed it into delicate blancmanges.”;*,
