  1. I have a question about the nutrition information: what is the volume that these measurements refer to? is it for all 6 cups of beverage? or per 8 ounces?
    How were these figures derermined?

    1. Hi Roger, the nutrition information is per serving. So for this recipe, it’s per cup of almond milk. Use the information as a guideline only – we do our best to provide our readers accurate information, but since we use a third-party nutrition calculator, we cannot guarantee that it is 100% accurate. Hope that helps:)
