There is no one-size-fits all approach when it comes to almonds. They are incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. So here are some of the many ways you can integrate almonds into your diet!

Eat them as a snack 

Whether it be plain, in a trail mix or roasted, almonds are perfect to satisfy your afternoon cravings. One serving of raw almonds contains only 164 calories and is packed full of healthy fats, protein, fibre and vitamins! At Naked Foods, we have a wide variety of almonds ranging from raw almonds, smoked almonds and roasted almonds to cinnamon coated almonds, all equally perfect to snack on!


Use them as a topping 

Almonds are incredibly versatile and can be used as a topping across a variety of dishes both sweet and savoury. Feel free to crush a couple of fresh almonds to complement your morning yogurt or oats, or toss some sliced almonds in your salads for that extra bit of crunch and texture!


Integrate them in your baked goods

Nuts in baked goods are a perfect match so why not add some almonds to your favourite baked desserts such as muffins, cakes, cookies and brownies etc. If you’re looking to add flavour to your desserts and avoid added sweets, almonds are a perfect addition! 


Use them in your smoothies

There’s no doubt that almonds are infused with a whole lot of vitamins, proteins and healthy fats, so adding them to your smoothies will give it a boost! Their creamy texture will blend perfectly in your morning or post-workout smoothies whilst giving you the extra kick of nutrients that your body deserves


Almond milk 

If you’re looking for another way to appreciate the goodness of almonds, then try some almond milk. Almond milk can be a perfect substitute for dairy milk and can be used in your coffees, teas, oats and cereal!
