Almond Milk Recipes

Almond milk recipes can be used in your paleo, keto, or vegan recipes that call for non-dairy milk. 

Almond milk is a lower carb milk that can help to give you some extra protein. 

That is if the almonds have been processed in a way that helps to remove the anti-nutrients that may block protein absorption.

Tips for Making Almond Milk Recipes

Raw sprouted almonds will give you better nutrition than pasteurized almonds (which is more widely available these days - unfortunately). 

And there is quite some controversy over obtaining raw almonds - especially in California!

Make sure you know your almond source and you may want to look into finding a better source for purchasing truly raw almonds.

Soak your almonds overnight and up to 24 hours (in salted water) to help remove its anti-nutrients.

Anti-nutrients interfere with the digestion and absorption of vital nutrients like protein.
