I’m sure I’ve shared this with you before but I have this weird, irrational fear of cow’s milk. It’s right below my #1 irrational fear of accidentally saying “I love you” on the phone to someone I hardly know. But anyway, I’m strictly an almond milk girl and so far this summer my favorite thing to make are smoothies with almond milk.
I was in Safeway the other day picking my usual Silk Almond Coconut Blend (I use it in my coffee every day and in smoothies and such) and noticed that Silk also has Almond Milk Protein + Fiber which I’d never tried.
You guys know that I’ve been trying to act like I know something about nutrition and fitness so I am all about anything with more protein and fiber! The Silk Almond with Protein + Fiber has 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber which is pretty impressive for almond milk!
For this post, though, we’re talking smoothies! I used the Almond Coconut Blend in Unsweetened Vanilla and since the coconut already makes it feel sort of tropical, I went with a tropical theme. Y’all know I’ve been buying $7.99/pound sliced mango (I know, it’s ridiculous – you don’t have to tell me) like it’s going out of style so I had to use some of that plus fresh pineapple and orange! And some coconut water because I can’t get enough coconut! Plus, coconut water is super hydrating and since it’s SO HOT lately, a little extra hydration is always a good thing!
These are really delicious. I usually find smoothies too heavy to be refreshing but this one really worked for me. And my kids all loved it! So definitely a winner!
