Almond milk is a good substitute for cow's milk, and it has all the benefits of real dairy. It’s high in protein and calcium, but low in fat. Almonds are also high in magnesium—an essential mineral that plays an important role in keeping your bones strong and healthy. In fact, almonds contain more magnesium than any other nut except pistachios! Almond milk can be made at home with one ingredient: almonds! All you need to do is soak them overnight (or even faster if using whole almonds), then blend them with water or coconut water until the consistency you want is reached. If you have trouble digesting nuts because of their high phytic acid content (which binds minerals), consider soaking them first before blending them into your almond milk recipe; this will reduce their anti-nutrient properties by allowing some leaching out into the mixture instead of remaining on top like usual when cooking off those acids through frying or baking goods made with nuts like cashews which contain higher amounts than most other types due mainly due their higher oil content compared with other types such as peanuts where only around 50%

4. Kale
