Lon’s a lactard (lactose intolerant) and he doesn’t love soy bean milk so we gave almond milk a try. It turned out to be quite good. In cereal, it’s similar to a lightly flavored skim milk, and even better, it’s healthier. We buy the Blue Diamond brand and it’s only 60 calories per serving (8 oz) for the original and 90 calories per serving for the vanilla.

So, I wanted to try almond milk in more applications, and the first experiment turned out well. This Blueberry Banana Smoothie doesn’t taste like the dairy version but it’s thick like any good smoothie, yet feels lighter.

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2/3 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2/3 cup chilled vanilla almond milk

Just put everything in a blender and blend until smooth, about 5 good pulses. Enjoy!
