Smoothie Packs


Looking for a healthy start to the new year? I always like to start my day with smoothies! I stock my freezer up with ready to go smoothie bags, then place in a blender with some protein powder and Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk. It’s perfect because it’s naturally sweet with no sugar and just 30 calories per cup.


Things You Need:

Plastic Baggies, Fruit, Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk, Protein powder


How To Make:

  1. Cut up your favorite fruits (and/or veggies) and add them in a plastic bag and store in the freezer until ready to use

  2. Take your smoothie bag and place it in the blender with protein powder and Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk


Almond Breeze Almondmilk is naturally nutritious and is fortified with Calcium and Vitamins. Almond Breeze is lactose-free, dairy-free, low carb, low calorie and comes in sugar free varieties. So it’s the perfect choice for anyone trying to eat healthy in the new year!
