Almond Milk Recipe

This Almond milk recipe makes for a great base for smoothies, it can also be used as a substitute for cows milk or soy milk. I have recently been having a glass as a treat after dinner. It is high in calcium and magnesium, and tastes delicious!

A great alternative to soy milk, easy to make and low allergenic for people sensitive to dairy.
