Is it healthier to drink almond milk or eat almonds?

Why not do both and reap all the benefits?

I think most raw vegans would eat both. They are just used for different purposes in different recipes (provided that you're actually making your own almond milk--not using store-bought of course).
I would say eating whole raw almonds that have been soaked for a few hours in water and then rinsed before eating would be the healthiest way to consume almonds. (Just guessing here)

I eat almonds but I don't make almond milk. That's not to say I never would but I never drank dairy milk before going raw vegan so I don't need a substitute. Eat almonds, drink homemade almond milk ... if you want to.
Why not make almond milk, then save the pulp, dehydrate/dry it out then give it a whirr in your blender to make almond meal. You can use that in lots of raw food recipes for breads/desserts/sun burgers etc. and that way you're reaping all the benefits!
