Review & Giveaway: Blue Diamond Almond Breeze!

When Moms Meet gave me the opportunity to review Blue Diamond Almond Breeze products, I jumped on it. We are already huge fans of the Chocolate Almond Breeze and I was excited to try their new Almond Coconut milk blend.

If you have never heard of Almond Breeze, it's a non-dairy milk alternative from Blue Diamond. It is calcium enriched and free of dairy,lactose,gluten and soy. It comes in original,chocolate and vanilla flavors in both sweetened and unsweetened. They also have a new Almond Coconut milk blend that also come sweetened or unsweetened.

Around my house chocolate was already a favorite. So I decided to try the new Almond Coconut milk blend to see what we thought. On it's own my daughter said it was okay and I felt the same. We also used it some of our smoothie recipes and we really liked it for that. I also liked that by using the Almond Breeze it lowered the fat making them even more healthy and we could serve them to our dairy-free friends too!

The great people at Moms Meet and Almond Breeze also included 2 recipe booklets and I wanted to share the Breakfast Banana Power Boost with you. This would be great for mornings especially with everyone going back to school and mornings being rushed. It takes no time at all and your kids will love it and you will too!!

Breakfast Banana Power Boost
1 serving

1 cup Vanilla Almond Breeze Almondmilk
1 heaping tsp. protein powder
2tsp honey
1 ripe banana,peeled
2 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Per serving there are only 164 calories and 1.4grams of fat

If you are looking for an alternative to traditional dairy milk, I highly recommend Blue Diamond Almond Breeze it is very tasty and can be used just as your would use regular milk.

  7. I'd love to try these in a smoothie. I'm lactose intolerant, but don't like the taste of the milk alternatives. But I don't notice them in a smoothie or with my cereal as much. So it would be nice to try something that doesn't make me ill!
