Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Milk – Recipe of the Week

By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Making your own almond milk is easy, fun and healthy.  Almonds are rich in the antioxidant vitamin E, healthy mono-unsaturated fats, protein and fiber (many of these nutrients will remain in the strained paste so save it for baking post-Reboot).

When Rebooting, almond milk should be consumed in small amounts.
