Dairy & Soy Free Milk! DELICIOUS…
The glory days of dairy are coming to an end, with an estimated 75% of the global population allergic to lactose on some level. So dairy went out of favour, and we jumped straight onto soy. Remember the ‘soy latte’ trend that spread like wildfire across the globe? What a pity that we never stopped to question the source! Loaded with phyto-estrogens, which mimic estrogen in the body, soy milk consumption can cause low testosterone, infertility, low sperm count, menstrual issues and cancer. And that is taking Monsanto out of the very gloomy equation.
Then what is the healthy alternative? Almond milk! AND… you can make it at home!
Almond milk is alkalizing, full of vitamin E for glowing skin, very low GI, so doesn’t affect your blood sugar, is far lower in calories than its soy and dairy counterparts, and still contains some vitamin D and calcium.
Almond Milk Recipe
– Take 1 cup of good quality almonds, 1 teaspoon of Himalayan salt and soak them for 12 hours in 2 – 3 cups of purified water to neutralize enzyme inhibitors and activate their nutrient potential!
– After 12 hours, take any floating almonds out of the bowl, and put the almonds and water into a blender. Start on low speed, before increasing to high speed.
– When the nuts are pulverized, stop the blender. Voila! You have almond milk!
It is better to drink almond milk without straining, as it preserves more calcium. Store in the fridge in a glass jar, where it will keep for up to 2 days. GOT (almond) MILK!
