Almond milk is so quick and easy to make. It is full of calcium and magnesium and other nutrients which will help calm your nervous system as well as give your bones all the goodness they need to be strong and healthy. Almonds are beautifully alkalizing for your body and this milk is perfect for kids. You can also use it as a dairy alternative in your favourite dishes.
