Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. My Thoughts and a Blueberry Peach Chill Recipe

Whether you're lactose intolerant or want something with less fat and calories than milk, Blue Diamond's Almond Breeze is a great way to go. It can be enjoyed straight from the box, or used as a milk substitute in some recipes. It comes in three varieties which include original, vanilla and chocolate and you can get it sweetened or unsweetened.

I really didn't know what my children would think about trying this out. Especially the ones that are unsweetened. My kids, though I can get them to eat fruits and most vegetables without a problem can be really picky when it comes to certain things. I was in shock when my second to youngest son tried  this Almond Milk and just lit up! After letting them try each of the varieties that we had on hand and announcing to them that they could have some whenever they wanted they even cheered!

Now here's a simple recipe for Blueberry Peach Chill:

You will need:

1½ cups (12 oz) Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze Almond Milk
1 cup frozen Unsweetened Blueberries
2 small peaches pitted and sliced (approx 1 cup)
2 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients until smooth and garnish with additional blueberries or peaches if desired.
