Nut milks are a great alternative to animal milk whether you’re lactose intolerant, have dairy allergies or are just looking for something different. For Vegetarians and Vegans, this is an excellent replacement for animal milk. This recipe is for simple but delicious almond milk. Almond milk is lower in calories than cows milk but lacks the amount of protein in cows milk. You can always add a plant-based protein powder to your milk if that’s a concern. Control of what’s in your milk is completely up to you.
