Why Use Almond Milk?

Many people choose almond milk for no other reason than to simply avoid cows' milk products, but did you know that this popular dairy alternative has even more going for it than you'd expect? Almond milk has many other health benefits that you can enjoy just by choosing this delicious non-dairy drink from your local grocery store.

First, almond milk is lactose-free. Cows milk dairy products have lactose in them, and if you are allergic to or intolerant of lactose, you may have a hard time digesting cows' milk products. You can enjoy the flavor of milk without lactose by choosing almond milk.

Second, almond milk has many of the nutritional benefits that eating almonds can give you. Almond milk is rich in magnesium and calcium, two minerals that you need for good health. Almond milk also has high levels of vitamin E, which can improve your brain health and may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease. 

Third, almond milk is lower in fat and calories than cow's milk which can help you lose weight. Additionally, unsweetened almond milk is a food with a low glycemic index, which means that it can help your blood sugar levels stay stable.

This is good news for people who suffer from diabetes and hypoglycemia who sometimes struggle with this, but it's also good for everyone because no one feels great after a blood sugar crash following a sugar rush.

Final Word On Almond Milk Coffee Recipes
