You can easily buy almond milk at the store, but why not make your own? With fewer additives, homemade almond milk is healthier than the kind you can buy. Almond milk is great for those who follow a plant-based diet, and it's rich in vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that can help to prevent against cancer.
