First for the video!!
Almonds are a superfood, so by implication, almond milk is supermilk? Kind of, it is! Protein, potassium, calcium, good for you fats to reduce cholesterol, and more. The first reason to try this recipe is by looking at the alternative; the store-bought kind. Check out the label of your local store’s almond milk; you will see some unexpected scientific names in there. Various gums and other nose-crinkling conundrums. Grrr…Aside from this, almond milk is surprisingly easy to make. The nutrients in the raw, sprouted almond milk recipe below far exceed the store bought version. You will notice a welcome absence of things you cannot pronounce. AND, it is a quadrillion times tastier than the store bought stuff… Really, one quadrillion times!!! That is why we have it in the kids' section. Want your kids to try a healthy snack? They will down this stuff like it is ambrosia.
