Last weekend when I moved it was 106°+ outside. Luckily it has cooled down a bit, but there are many more hot days in store as the summer progresses. Because my kids cannot resist playing outside, even if it is stinkin’ hot out, I like to be prepared with cold, refreshing treats and drinks. Water is always at the top of the list, but I like to “up” my game and give them treats every now and then. One of our favorite summer treats is Orange Julius. I have a recipe I have been making for years and years and it is always a winner. This summer I decided to change things up a bit and give the smoothie a coconut flair with even more vitamins by using Silk Almond Coconut Blend. So delicious! Silk Almondmilk #SilkAlmondBlends #shop For a variety of summer smoothies and recipes, I headed to Safeway and picked up cartons of Silk Almond Coconut Blend AND Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber. I love that I can make some old favorites, or new dishes, but switch things up and add the benefits of almond milk. Coconut Orange Julius with Silk Almond Coconut Blend #SilkAlmondBlends #shop After more unpacking today a smoothie is what my body craved, but a friend recommended trying the Silk Almond Coconut Blend for a Coconut Milk Thai dish and I assure you I will be trying that soon. YUM! Until then, a Coconut Orange Julius with Silk Amond Coconut Blend is on the menu, to get us through hot summer days. My kiddos are not big milk drinkers, which means I often worry about their calcium intake. Every glass of almondmilk contains 50% more calcium than dairy milk. The extra calcium and the fact that almondmilk expires much later than dairy milk is golden to me. I hate throwing out expired milk, and that never happens when I buy almondmilk.  Coconut Orange Julius with Silk Almond Coconut Blend #SilkAlmondBlends #shop My typical Orange Julius recipe calls for vanilla extract, but when using the Silk Almond Coconut Blend, it really isn’t necessary. Great flavor already, and you get the benefits of the almonds and the coconut! I’d love to hear your recipe ideas for almondmilk. I’m in the market for building my repertoire.
