If you’re lactose intolerant or beginning to cut dairy out of your diet, consider giving almond milk a try. Not only is it low in fat, but also since it’s prepared with almonds the milk is high in energy, proteins, and fiber. It also contains minerals like potassium, sodium, zinc, and calcium.
Almond milk is also packed with vitamins making it an enriched dairy replacement, and is a solid ingredient to include in recipes.
