Ketogenic aka Keto diet followers often resort to this variant of milk as it is not only nutritious but low carb and low cal. It has several nutrients such as calcium, riboflavin, Thiamin, magnesium, vitamin E and vitamin D  among others. For the unversed, almond milk is a liquid made from blended almonds. One can soak the almonds overnight in water to soften them up. Later, blend and strain it, voila, you will get the milk alternative.
