Badam milk or almond energy drink

Badam milk or almond energy drink

Almond Milk: An Easy Beverage for Daily Nourishment!

Almonds (badam) are treasure troves of protein and fiber. Including them in your diet has numerous health benefits.

I often make this almond energy drink in the morning for our family. As I don't want to use processed sugar in this recipe, I used a few dates to sweeten the beverage. Dates are natural sweeteners that are also a good source of iron and fiber.

I also used poppy seeds in this recipe, which give the smoothie a crunchy finish. These seeds are a good source of minerals; just a teaspoon provides a significant amount of iron, calcium, and zinc.

So, this almond energy drink is a very nutritious, natural beverage that anybody can drink in the morning.
