Almond Milk (vanilla - sweetened)

Smoothie Recipes with Sweetened Almond Milk

What is Almond milk?

Almond milk is a plant alternative to dairy milk. It does not contain cholesterol or lactose. Commercial almond milk comes in sweetened, unsweetened, plain, vanilla and chocolate flavors, and is usually enriched with vitamins. It can also be made at home using a blender, almonds and water.

We recommend finding an almond milk without the ingredient “Carrageenan”. Carrageenan is an additive found in many store bought almond or coconut milk. It’s a thickening additive that comes from seaweed. Unfortunately – there is some research linking Carrageenan to health issues such as inflammation and digestion. In general – we would just recommend avoiding almond milk with this additive.

Can I use a different kind of Milk?

Yes. Many people will choose to use regular milk, coconut milk, or skim milk. Our personal favorite is Almond Milk and our #2 favorite is Coconut Milk.

Regular milk has lactose which a lot of people are allergic to or have food sensitivities to. It’s also an animal based product. For these reasons, a lot of people turn towards a milk alternative such as almond milk.
