More people are substituting cow’s milk for almond milk for very valid reasons. Almond milk contains less allergens than dairy milk does, and enriched almond milk helps strengthen bones. Our Bone-Builder Smoothie showcases several other ingredients that are best for the bones, like hemp seeds, turmeric, and coconut oil. All combined, these superfoods offer a smooth mix of rich nutrients that address low-bone density issues, which may be warning signs of osteoporosis.
