Reducing our intake of dairy and opting for dairy free alternatives such as plant based milks can result in less inflammation, less mucus production and less adverse reactions  Excess dairy consumption can often lead to skin breakouts, allergy flare-ups, digestive issues, increased respiratory mucus which can exacerbate asthma & an increased risk of certain cancers due to certain cancer-producing hormones. Whilst home-made almond milk may not be the best substitute for increasing our calcium intake (which should be done through the consumption of other calcium rich foods), almond milk may supply us with a good source of fats, vitamin E & manganese, whilst the pulp (full of fibre & protein) can be used in other yummy recipes
