Congrats to the winners: RK, Mom24, and Kim!
With all the traveling we did over the past month it was inevitable that upon one of our trips home we would be without some essential ingredient. Of course that would be milk and it was discovered on the morning that Joe planned to make pancakes for breakfast.
Then I remembered I had some Blue Diamond Almond Breeze in the fridge that I needed to try for a review from Moms Meet and this was a perfect opportunity. I received a sample of the new Coconutmilk (Unsweetened) blend.
I've tried the Blue Diamond Almond Breeze a few years ago (Original and Vanilla) and liked the nice creamy taste. It is a great alternative for dairy and soy milk. The Almondmilk is calcium-enriched and contains only 60 calories per glass (half the amount of 2% milk). No one in my family has a dairy allergy so I'm in the habit of picking up regular dairy milk; although I'm going to start buying the Almond Breeze more often after being reintroduced to it.
The Coconutmilk blend is a blend of almonds and real coconut that is also available in
Original, Vanilla and Unsweetened Vanilla. I didn't prefer this variety straight out
of a glass, and probably wouldn't like the flavor in my cereal, but it
worked fine for the pancakes Joe made and in the smoothies I've made since then.
If you're looking for some ideas on what else to use the Almondmilk, or Coconutmilk blends with there are plenty of recipes available from smoothies to breakfast items to soups! All of the products come in refrigerated or shelf-stable and are free from dairy, soy, lactose, cholesterol, peanuts, casein, gluten, eggs, saturated fat and MSG. The products are all natural with added vitamins and minerals.
I have 3 coupons for a free carton of Blue Diamond Almond Breeze to give away to 3 readers. Leave a comment, making sure I can contact you if you're the winner, stating whether you already use Almond Breeze. If you don't, check out the recipes and leave a comment of which one you'd like to try with the Almond Breeze.
