Almond milk is said to help prevent Alzheimer's, diabetes, and heart disease. Not only that, but Almond milk is rich in calcium and vitamins, making it a great milk alternative to enhance your vitality.
Almond milk was used as a viable milk substitute in the middle ages. Unlike animal milk, almond milk made from ground nuts that are steeped in water; this was easy to produce and did not readily spoil. Cooks could store almonds for long periods of time, only making them into almond milk when necessary. Like animal milk, however, almond milk has a high fat content. This meant that it could be used to make butter.
Lent, the period before Easter in the Church calendar, was traditionally a time of fasting during which no animal products could be consumed. Cooks instead used Almond milk to cook with.
Almond Milk is made from raw unsalted and uncooked Almonds. The Almonds are soaked in water for roughly 8 hours or so. Once the Almonds are done soaking, they are then drained and put into a blender with fresh water. Once the consistency becomes desirable, the result is Almond Milk. It is noted for having a light, sweet and nutty flavor, making it a prime option for a lactose free substitute for dairy milk.
