The Health Benefits of Milk
The lowdown: Roasted almonds are blended, and the resulting liquid is then enriched with nutrients (like calcium, vitamin D, and the antioxidant vitamin E) and may be sweetened or flavored. Almond milk is free of saturated fat, cholesterol, and lactose, and the unsweetened versions have just 60 calories a cup.
Good to know: The sweet and nutty flavor goes well with coffee or cereal, so it’s a tasty alternative for dieters. However, it contains very little protein.
