I am a big fan of Silk® Almond Milk and use it regularly. I sometimes have, um, issues with dairy, and my boys aren’t big on soy products, but Almond Milk is a favorite. I regularly make smoothies using it and have shared the recipe for my Chocolate Mint Smoothie among others.
There are several varieties of Silk® available, unsweetened, vanilla, etc. All of them are low calorie and loaded with protein and calcium (which is something I don’t think I get enough of.) I drink it straight, eat it with cereal and on occasion, even cook with it.
I often use Almond Milk when making home-made popsicles. It’s a great way to get a lot of fruits and protein into a sweet treat. There are new Silk® Blends that add extra flavor. I love the Almond Milk and Coconut blend, especially for smoothies and popsicles.
Summer time is a great way to incorporate fruit into popsicles and smoothies. Over-ripe bananas, Silk® Almond Coconut Blend, fresh blueberries and some chocolate protein powder, blended and poured into popsicle molds? Yum! There’s no set recipe that I follow. Experimenting with different flavor combinations is fun and tasty, and I don’t have to roll my eyes or worry when I see Grant walk by, eating his 3rd popsicle in a row.
