Almond Banana Berry Smoothie with @Almond_Fresh #Recipe

By in Food, Recipes on August 5, 2014
I’ll let you in on a little secret. You gotta keep it on the down low though okay? Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always enjoyed a nice warm cup of milk before bed. I went through my uber cool phase when I’d drink a latte or cappuccino with friends and then kick myself while I stayed awake all night from the caffeine.  Before kids it was cool to stay up all night. Sleep was for the weak. Now a lack of sleep makes me weak. 

Somehow I find as I get older (figuratively of course) I look forward to a nice warm mug of milk to help me unwind before I sleep. A little while back a family member suggested I try grinding almonds into my milk for the added health benefits, so I did. Unfortunately it left me gagging as the small bits of almond became lodged in my throat. That didn’t last too long.
I was at a conference a couple of years back, parched from walking around all day, a little hungry and supper wasn’t going to be for another few hours. I reached into my swag bag and found a small tetra pack of Almond Fresh. It looked foreign at first, as it had been years since I drank milk out of a box but I gave it a try. Mmmm. It was love at first sip. I loved the silky smooth texture, consistency and taste. I was in bevvy love. It wasn’t long before I introduced it to my family and our weekly routine of buying three different types of milk for the four of us morphed into one large carton of Earth’s Own Almond Fresh in our fridge.

We have a partially lactose intolerant household and it was getting tedious (not to mention costly) to buy one lactose free, one regular and one low fat milk each week. My kids enjoy the slightly nutty taste of Almond Fresh and when it comes to making smoothies (which are all the rage right now), nothing tastes better with fresh fruit than cold almond milk! I have tried a few different brands but nothing compares to the smooth flavour and consistency of Earth’s Own Almond Fresh milk. I love it in my coffee, I love it poured over my cereal and I especially love it heated up with a sprinkle of cinnamon before bed (and now you know).
According to Statistics Canada, sugar consumption in Canada is at an all-time high. The average Canadian consumes 26 teaspoons of sugar per day – that’s 20 bags of sugar per year, and far too many per the World Health Organization (WHO), who is once again urging people to lower the amount of sugar they consume.
Just to break it down for you:
Interesting comparisons:
9.5 cubes of sugar in1 can of coke
6.5 cubes of sugar in1 can of Red Bull
3.5 cubes of sugar in4 Oreo cookies
7.5 cubes of sugar in1 Snickers bar
7 cubes of sugar in1⁄2 cup Häagen-Dazs raspberry sorbet
1 serving of Almond Fresh Unsweetened almond milk0 grams of sugar, 35 calories, and fortified with nine essential vitamins and minerals.
I’m such a huge fan of Earth’s Own Almond Fresh that I want YOU to try it for yourself. What better way than with an awesome gift basket valued at $150., smoothie recipe, canadianmomeh, almond fresh, earth's own almond fresh, giveaway, gift basket, lactose free milk
