Tropical Green Smoothies with Almond Milk

Once school gets out this week (finally), the afternoon swim team practice that has caused me so much dinner stress will switch to early morning. Time to switch gears! Now I need a morning kickstart to help us get to the pool on time. Smoothies with almond milk are just the ticket- lots of fruit, protein and fiber- and I can take them to go. 


I picked up some of the new Silk Almond Blends at Safeway last week so I could try them out in my morning smoothies. You'll find both Silk Almond Coconut Blend and Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber in the dairy case.

Thank you for reading our eNewsletter!  If you have a great time at one of these events or have an interesting tip, please share it with us! It is our mission to experience the great adventure of parenting with YOU!
