I've been drinking smoothies with almond milk for years, I'm pretty sure that is lesson #1 in How to be a vegetarian. It's easier on your stomach, has fewer calories, a little boost of protein and gives your smoothies a subtle nutty flavor. Lately, my morning smoothie has been switched out with a morning blended coffee. Two birds, one stone!
Portland is having a major heat wave right now and all I want to do is lay on the couch with something cold to drink and not move all day (have I mentioned that almost no houses here have A/C?). The hot weather is not my favorite but I'll take any excuse to drink frozen coffee all day. Or these peach-mango-almond milk popsicles too!
The "icy"-ness of these type of drinks usually melt pretty fast so you have to sip quick—or maybe thats just me and my crazy hot house right now.
1 cup cooled double strength coffee—I used a french press to brew mine)
1/2 cup silk almond milk—I used the silk almond milk protein + fiber which I found at Safeway
2-3 tablespoons of honey or desired sweetener
1 cup ice
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until everything is mixed and the ice is super fine. I used a vitamix so it only took about 10 seconds. Any blender of food processor will do the trick though!
^^lovingly picking out my silk almond milk + staying cool in the refrigerator section!
Hope you're staying cool with frozen treats too! If you try out this recipe, let me know (and tag me if you post it on instagram!)
