Almond milk is light and very nutritious especially for skin and hair; part of the reason is that it has a healthy dose of vitamin E. I know of people who wash their hair with almond milk mixed with certain oils, however, I have not tried this and cannot confirm with sincerity that it’s effective. What I can confirm with conviction is that I have almost zero hair loss during washing and contrary to so smany women my age, my hair is growing stronger and thicker despite having to endure so many experimental adventures.
Unfortunately, store bought almond milk seriously lacks the deliciousness of home made. Regardless how much distributors of store bought almond milk promise that the contents is 100%, after trying and testing several store bought versions, I have my doubts and comparing them with my home made wonderfulness the taste is honestly, worlds apart! It’s kind of sad that for many people, this is what they think almond milk tastes like and might never give themselves the opportunity to try again. My sweet Pia and I drink almond milk primarily for hair and skin, however, for those who are lactose intolerant, really love and care for animals and want to completely break away from animal products but still long for a milky kind of kick or simply something for their breakfast cereal, this might be your answer:
– soak about a small cup full of almonds for a few hours; – rinse and put into strong blender with ca. 4 cups of water; – add: a bit of maple syrup or, for a natural sweetener, 3 dates (remove pips), pinch of salt and tad vanilla essence; – blend until smooth and milky; – strain in a fine sieb. I love to strain through a cheese cloth and press everything out, it’s a very therapeutic feeling squeezing that soft, warm cloth full of milk!! I love to sprinkle chocolate on top or blend in strawberries or blue berries or both. Even banana! one can become very creative with this and it’s always going to taste amazing. Very important: always strive to purchase organic, raw unprocessed almonds. (Available at good health stores or online).
