In the past 6 months I made the switch from organic skim milk to unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I had been hearing a lot about it from others so I thought I’d give it a try. I thought I’d miss dairy milk but I don’t. In fact, I like the extra creaminess and flavor almond milk has. I usually buy my local grocery store’s brand of natural almond milk. However, I was recently given the opportunity to sample Blue Diamond Almond Breeze new Almond Milk Coconut Milk Blend as part of the Moms Meet blogger program.
This was my first time trying a shelf stable almond milk. I usually buy from the refrigerator case just because it comes in a bigger container and is cheaper. I’m not a huge coconut flavor fan so I was a little hesitant about it. I first tried it in my regular morning oatmeal. It gave me the same results I usually get but I didn’t notice any coconut flavor. I have also had it in plain cereal. That was the only time I really tasted the coconut. Even so, I liked the taste. I’m really on a big smoothie kick right now so I mixed up a few variations with it. Yesterday morning I made a smoothie in a bowl (or smoothie soup as I called it).
Delicious! Except wouldn’t you know that I choose to make a cold smoothie on the morning that it was only 55 degrees outside. I was an ice cube while eating it! I’ll have to remember that for a great post run refuel.
I would definitely recommend trying Almond Breeze Almond Coconut Milk. It has the all the taste and consistency of regular almond milk but with a subtle coconut flavor.
