With so many people around with lactose intolerance I decided, for the first time, try and substitute regular milk for almond one. This time I incorporated almond milk into one of my muffin’s recipes.
Been called one of nature’s superfoods, almond milk is not only a delicious low-fat alternative to cow’s milk and soy, almond milk also tastes great and good for your health.
Almond milk, unlike cow's milk, is safe for those who are lactose intolerant or have gluten and casein allergies. It is high in a number of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, iron, fiber, zinc and calcium. Almond milk is low in calories, at only 40 calories per eight ounce serving, and low in fat. It contains only three grams of fat per eight ounce serving. Almond milk is lactose, gluten, casein and cholesterol free; it's also free of saturated fats.
