What is Almond Milk?
If this is your first nut-free milk rodeo, here’s a quick recap. Almond milk (or Mylk, as non-dairy products are also named) is made from, you guessed it, almonds. The process is super simple: you soak almonds in water overnight, blend the next day and sieve to remove the pulp. Voila, the liquid you are left with is pure, raw, unadulterated almond milk.
Whilst raw homemade almond milk lacks some essential nutrients, Lamar’s fortified almond milk makes sure you don’t miss out on the Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Calcium and Magnesium your body needs. A lactose-free dairy milk alternative that won’t break the bank? Sign us up!
