Almond milk is a fantastic replacement for cow's milk if you are dairy-free. It's rich in nutrients, particularly minerals such as zinc and magnesium, and has a great texture and mouthfeel. It's not as fatty as coconut milk, nor as strong, which makes it great for cooking too.
Unfortunately many of the prepared almond milks that you buy at the supermarket are full of additives such as canola oil, sugar, artificial sweeteners and preservatives, which eliminates any goodness that it may have originally held.
It's really quick and easy to whiz up at home, so check out the video below and give it a go!
