Almond Milk | Benifits | BP | Body Weight | Home Made

Almond Milk | Benifits | BP | Body Weight | Home Made

Whether you don’t like the taste of the milk, or you are a vegan, or you are lactose intolerant, here is an astounding and delectable alternative for you- “almond milk”

This absolutely perfect substitute to cow’s milk is made from pounded almonds.

1. Maintains the Blood Sugar

As compared to other milk alternatives, almond milk contains less quantity of carbohydrates, low amount of sugar, and low glycemic index, which make it effective in reducing the blood sugar level.

2. Manages the Body Weight

Those, who want to lose weight, usually keep themselves away from milk. But, they can consume almond milk as it is low in fat and sugar. Consume almond milk without sugar or any added flavours to get other benefits simultaneously.

3. Maintains Eye Health

Vitamin A is essential for enhancing the ability of the eyes to adjust themselves in different beams of light. The judicious amount of Vitamin A found in almond milk helps our eyes to function appropriately.

4. Bone Health

Similar to cow’s milk, almond milk is also abundant in calcium and Vitamin D. These nutritious elements aid in building up of strong and sturdy bones in men, women and children. Moreover, the magnesium compounds help calcium to incorporate in the body properly. Apart from maintaining the bone health, vitamin D is also considered great for improvising the cell functioning and enhancing the immunity.

5. Good for Heart

Almond milk is zilch in cholesterol and contains very low sodium, and it is a prevalent fact that low sodium and cholesterol are really effective in maintaining the heart health and lowering down the blood pressure.

6. Helps in Digestion

Approximately one gram of fibre in a glass of almond milk induces healthy digestion and bowel movement.

7. Good for Lactose Intolerant

As it contains nothing that includes lactose, hence, almond milk is a perfect substitute to cow’s milk.

8. Improves Muscle Power

Almond milk encloses B-vitamins in the form of riboflavin, which are helpful for the growth and repair of the muscles.

How to make almond milk at home:

1: boil water and switch of the flame when the water becomes hot and starts boiling.

2: rinse the almonds and add these to the boiled water. cover with a lid and let the almonds get blanched for 30-45 minutes. i blanch the almonds as its easier to remove the peel. you can also soak the almonds overnight. but i find peeling soaked almonds cumbersome. the peels just don’t come off easily. you can keep the peels if you want. i remove them as they irritate our throats when they are ground.

3: drain the water. this water you can cool and give it to your plants. just press the peel of the almond between your thumb and forefinger and the peel comes off easily. remove the peels of all the almonds this way.

4: now add 3 cups water in the blender along with the almonds. blend till smooth.

5: using a juice strainer/fine sieve/muslin/cheese cloth bag strain the milk keeping a large bowl or pan below.

6: you will see the milk filtering down and the almond pulp on the strainer. press the pulp with a wooden spoon or non reactive metal spoon.

7: now take this pulp back into the blender and add 1 cup of water and blend again. this part is optional. you can just blend the almonds with 4 cups water and then strain the milk once. strain again.

8: press with the spoon again so that all the milk is extracted from the pulp.
