Watch out, friends. I've fallen in love with almond milk. (And regular ol' almonds. And coconut. But I'll have to share my love for those another day.)
For real, I love the stuff. I've always been a fan of almonds and now I've taken it to a whole new level.
Since I can no longer make my smoothies using my beloved yogurt, I've switched to almond milk. This:
Unsweetened vanilla. It is so good.
From a yogurt-based smoothie to an almond milk-based one -- sounds like it wouldn't be the same, right? Right. It isn't. It is better. To me, it is just so much better. I didn't think it would be and yet it is. My smoothies are lighter since they aren't weighed down by dairy anymore.
Now I'm working on getting the family switched over to almond milk so I can stop buying cow's milk (which, admittedly, I am against). Owen is already on-board and using almond milk in his morning cereal. I'm working on the kids!
They've enjoyed their almond milk smoothies so far, so that is a start. Slowly but surely, I'll try to win them over!
(Interested in trying Silk Almond Milk? You can download a coupon from their web site. And, by the way: No, I wasn't asked to review this almond milk. I just love it. And had to share my love!)
1 green-tipped banana
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
1/2 cup water
1 tbs chia seeds
Blend it up! And enjoy.
I'm experimenting with new recipes and new ingredients. Some have worked better than others but it is kind of fun trying to find new ways to do things. I'll be sure to share some of the better recipes that I come across and make!
Have you switched from cow's milk to almond (or coconut or other) milk?
How did it work for you?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
