Very Berry Almond Smoothie #CoolerwithAlmondBreeze

With no member of our family sensitive to dairy, almond milk just wasn’t something we considered buying. Turns out, it’s actually pretty darn tasty and that’s reason enough! It’s also a great source of calcium and lactose, gluten and dairy free. The best part? Almond Breeze Vanilla only contains just 90 calories per cup and  has no saturated fat, making it a great addition to your healthy eating routine! Come on, you know you vowed to eat better this year right?

To get properly aquainted with Almond Breeze, I thought I would try adding it to a classic smoothie recipe. Our whole family loves smoothies around here and I especially love it because I can pack it full of goodness and the kids are none the wiser! Sneaky sneaky! My biggest struggle with smoothie making is getting enough liquid in so the blender can crush up that hard ice. I don’t like watering it down with water because it loses taste, but adding in orange juice, just adds more sugar. I was excited to give Almond Breeze a try!

The Almond Breeze made my favourite smoothie taste even better! It really added a creaminess that I loved and the hint of almond was fantastic!

Almond Breeze is available across Canada in two locations at your supermarkets, the shelf and now the refrigerator too. If you prefer your almond milk cold and ready, you can pick it  up in the following flavours:

Original and Unsweetened Orginal
Vanilla and Unsweetened Vanilla

You can also still get it right on the shelf, making it a go-to item in your pantry in these flavours:

Original and Unsweetened Orginal
Vanilla and Unsweetened Vanilla
Chocolate and Unsweetened Chocolate
Coconut and Unsweetened Coconut

Now that I am more familiar with Almond Breeze, I can’t wait to try it in all kinds of recipes! Almond Breeze can be used in just about any recipe calling for traditional cow’s milk. It can be used in baking, soups and sauces, as well as heated up for hot drinks, etc. The only recipes not recommend to use Almond Breeze is for use in making yogurt or puddings. I can’t wait to get started!

    I will be honest we had never used it before but my sister raved about it. (she is a vegan) When I had seen a post about it I thought why not. I must say it has been something in our fridge now and we all love it even the kids. Nice to have a healthy option and with many flavours to pick from this mama is happy:)

  3. LOVE your pictures! We are huge Almond Breeze drinkers in our house. No milk in our fridge.

  4. This is so pretty and appetite! I have all the ingredients on hand so I am definitely going to try this recipe.

  5. I love finding simple ways to help my family eat healthier. This looks like a great recipe – I’m sure my girls would love it!

  6. We use almond milk everyday, it’s something I have enjoyed for years! I like it because the unsweetened variety is 0g of sugar (as opposed to 5g for 1%) and it has more calcium. It’s a lighter option and I feel great when I drink it.

  7. We are big almond milk fans! Love it with my coffee in the morning or in smoothies for the kids!

  8. Almond breeze meet daiquiri! YUM! I can’t wait to try this!

  9. My kids are crazy for fruit shakes, and love using almond milk as the base. It is so healthful, and I love that I can control the sugar (or lack thereof) going into it.
