5 Recipes To Celebrate National Almond Day

We at Dherbs are in love with almonds. They help to power us through our cleanses while also providing us with a ton of nutrients. We post a lot of recipes that contain almonds, in case you haven’t visited our recipe section. It’s okay, if you didn’t…it’s not like we worked hard on it or anything ;) Not only are almonds a fantastic heart-healthy food, but they are also great for keeping cravings at bay, which helps you control your portions.

 

Fun Fact: Almonds are extremely rich in vitamin E, which is why almond oil is used in many skincare products. They are also more nutrient dense than any other nut!

Making The Switch To Almond Milk:

Within recent years, more and more people are ditching traditional cow’s milk and opting for non-dairy milk alternatives. Almond milk happens to be one of the most popular non-dairy options, and people can easily make it by simply blending almonds with water and straining the liquid through a cheesecloth. Click here to learn how to make almond milk. While there are reputable almond milk varieties, most commercial brands add preservatives, sweeteners, and flavors for a more appetizing taste. That being said, almond milk that is free of those ingredients is naturally rich in healthy fats, protein, magnesium, vitamin E, and contains a lot fewer calories and carbs than cow’s milk. Finally, the production of almond milk is much better for the environment.

 

To help celebrate National Almond Day, we have five recipes that feature the almighty almond. Get in the kitchen and let us know how you like the following recipes.
