Healthy Almond Milk Smoothies Making Guide

I've recently discovered the wonders of almond milk: it's low-calorie, low-fat, and tastes delicious while also providing a good source of calcium. Almond milk also has a low Glycemic Index, meaning it does not raise your blood sugar as high as other foods. It is also lactose and gluten-free! Since trying almond milk, I've come up with several healthy smoothie recipes that use almond milk as the liquid component, and I think you'll agree that these two would make a perfect breakfast, snack, or dessert!

Elegant Decadence: White Chocolate Raspberry Almond Milk Smoothie

  • 2 tsp. Jell-O sugar-free, fat-free white chocolate pudding mix
  • ¼ cup Blue Diamond Natural Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ¼ cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • ¼ cup Blue Diamond Natural Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ¼ cup fresh or thawed raspberries

White chocolate and raspberries are a classically elegant flavor combination, but this healthy almond milk smoothie is light enough to be a snack! To begin this smoothie recipe, combine the pudding mix with ¼ cup of the almond milk in a small bowl. Whisk with a fork for two minutes until blended and lightly set. Pour this mixture into your smoothie making machine and then add the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth and mixed, and enjoy! This very healthy smoothie recipe makes one serving, which has 93 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and zero cholesterol!

Mediterranean Delight: Pistachio, Fig, and Almond Milk Smoothie

  • 2 tsp. Jell-O sugar-free, fat-free pistachio pudding mix
  • ¼ cup Blue Diamond Natural Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ¼ cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • ¼ cup Blue Diamond Natural Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ¼ cup (3 small) fresh black mission figs (or ¼ cup fig preserves)

The almond milk really brings out the flavor of the pistachio pudding in this smoothie. As before, this smoothie recipe begins by combining the pudding mix with ¼ cup of the almond milk in a small bowl. Make sure you get a few of the pistachio pieces in the mix! Whisk with a fork for two minutes until blended and lightly set. Pour this mixture into your blender and then add the yogurt and almond milk. Use only the flesh and seeds of the fresh figs, and not the skins, and do not use dried figs, as the consistency will not be as pleasant. In a pinch, fig preserves may be used. Add the figs to the blender and blend until smooth, then enjoy! This healthy smoothie recipe makes one serving, which has 170 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and zero cholesterol!

As long as the almond milk and the yogurt are straight from the refrigerator, I find no need for the addition of ice. If you want to make a larger batch of these healthy smoothies, simply increase the ingredients accordingly; one package of Jell-o pudding contains approximately eight teaspoons of mix. I hope that you enjoy these almond milk smoothies and toast to your health!
