7 Days of Almond Milk Challenge

Recently I was watching an interview with Sarah Jessica Parker about her beauty secrets, one of which is almond milk. She is super passionate about it and adores the flavor. So I thought why don’t I try to understand this passion better and subside my beloved low fat cow milk with almond one. At first, I thought the challenge will be hard because I tried almond milk before and I didn’t particularly like the taste. That is why pushing myself to do the challenge was the only way for me to get used to it. Surprisingly, it went much better than I imagined… watch the video below to see the challenge.

However in this article, let’s talk about pluses and minuses of this exotic drink.

Pluses of Almond Milk

  • Low in calories, unsweetened is just 30 cal. per 100 ml but sweetened is double of course.
  • You can lose weight much faster by substituting it with the regular full-fat milk. It is not so nutrient-dense. 
  • Almond milk falls into the category of plan-based food. It will help you to stay healthier and overcome lots of diseases. Check out alkaline diet if you have any problems with health.
  • When you add a little of it to some food, you will never notice the difference.
  • No lactose, so almond milk is perfect for lactose-intolerant people.
  • Vegan & raw-vegan friendly.

Minuses of Almond Milk

  • Only 1 g of protein which is not so good if you want to build muscles.
  • The calcium is added, not naturally there as in cow milk.
  • Very high price as far as I saw in the shops around me. Maybe you find a better deal but mine I got for $15 per bottle.
  • Very hard or next to impossible to make hot cappuccino with beautiful foam as it easily gets flat.
  • Taste in drinks might not be so pleasant at first, something to get used to.

For who almond milk would be suitable? Lactose-intolerant people, those who love plant-based food, want to lose weight & don’t want to build many muscles. And for the rest of us, we just go for nutrient-dense cow milk. It also isn’t so bad as many vegans might say. Only depends with what you compare it.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
