Top Ten Benefits of Healthy Almond Milk
TOP TEN BENEFITS OF HEALTHY UNSWEETENED
If you love almond milk, you already know how great it taste. I’ve been drinking this wonderful milk for only a short time, but Wow I have been missing out on a delicious and healthy treat. This nutritious drink has become a new best friend, and one I plan to keep around a very long time.
My choice in almond milk is unsweetened and contains 5 grams of protein.
I use the unsweetened version of almond milk so I can add my sweetener of choice. The carbs are low, 1 gram to 8 ounces. Anyone with a sugar problem should give almond milk a try. It is a natural for carb watchers who want good nutrition.
To sweetened almond milk, I add stevia, a natural sweetener that I prefer over other kinds of sweeteners, and I also add a bit of vanilla extract and a sprinkle of cinnamon in the glass. One can purchase vanilla flavored almond milk , if you prefer.
For a morning pick-me-up or a nightime drink to squell my “I gotta have something to eat” head dialogue, I turn to my spiced almond milk. It chills the gut craving hunger pains and taste oh, so great!
