Almond Milk: How to Make Your Own at Home

With the end of the year, and the passing of the gluttonous holidays most of us have made some sort of resolution or another in regards to getting healthy.

Whether you're still on the healthy bandwagon or you've gone down the fun road of cakes and bourbon, there's always room for a healthy snack or fat-alternative.
