Gluten-Free Almond Drink

Why pay all that money for almond milk when you can make it fresh, fresh, fresh; one-ounce serving of almonds (about 23 almonds) is an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium and manganese, and a good source of fiber, copper, riboflavin, and phosphorus. Not to mention, every ounce has 6 grams of protein, and 12 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Now that's a lot of nutrients for such a small package. Courtesy Almond Board of California
