Almond milk is low in calories, with a mellow flavor and a consistency that is slightly thinner than regular milk. While there’s a hint of almond taste, it’s not too pronounced. The low calorie count makes it a favorite of those who are watching their weight; and since almonds are naturally high in calcium, a cup of almond milk will help protect your bones as well. Amy Margulies, registered dietician and lead dietician at Retrofit, points out that almond milk is "high in vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, and adds a touch of sweetness to whatever you are using it with." There’s one downside to almond milk, however: it’s low in protein, so you’ll need to get protein from somewhere else. It’s also not suitable for those with nut allergies.
