In the past two recipes that I shared I mentioned I was using almond milk instead. The first time I had almond milk I was not fond of it. I found almond milk to be a watered down version of regular milk. However, as time went on I found more and more people who were using almond milk as opposed to regular milk. I did some research and decided to share a few facts on almond milk:
- If you buy unsweetened almond milk, then it is low in sugar. Yes, as you know too much sugar can be bad for you. Almond milk can be a healthy option for not haivn
- Almond milk is low in calories and carbs. Many of the people whom I know who have switched to almond milk have done so for this reason.
- It is high in calcium. “Milk builds strong bones” is a phrase that I frequently heard through out my childhood. One of those reasons I was told, and found was true as an adult, is due to calcium. So, here’s to calcium in almond milk.
- If found that almond milk is easier to cook with. This is a fact that is my own personal one. I don’t know if you know this but, you are not supposed to use milk as a base in a crockpot due to it being dairy. But, almond milk is not dairy and, to me, is a great substitute for cooking with regular milk.
So, here’s to almond milk. Yes, I may have regular milk around at times. But, I found that almond milk is a great alternative to regular milk. Hope you all had a great week.
