Benefits of Almond Milk

Dairy milk provides several health benefits, but a lot of people can’t seem to stomach it. For those of you looking for an alternative, enjoy soy, coconut, cashew, hemp or almond milk. The benefits of the vitamins in almond milk can improve eye functioning and help your skin look great. Make almond milk in your blender and drink it all, pour it over cereal, or use it in your favorite recipes as a dairy milk alternative.
