I was trying to incorporate almond milk in our diet and come up with some almond milk recipes. Since it is summer time, popsicles and frozen treats sounded like the perfect option. I want to control exactly what ingredients would be included and be confident that it was good for my family.
I found quite a few almond milk options at Safeway and decided on the Silk Almond Coconut Blend and Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber. They were located in the refrigerated dairy case right next to the milk.
The recipe for my peanut butter popsicles were easy and only require 3 ingredients. They are dairy free and vegan!
- 1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
- 1 cup Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber
- 6 crushed chocolate sandwich cookies
- Blend peanut butter and almond milk in blender until smooth
- Pour the mixture into a bowl and fold in the crushed chocolate sandwich cookies
- Pour into cups or molds to freeze. Be sure to insert sticks when the treats have set up but before they are frozen solid.
1 cup of the Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber contains 5g of protein and 5g of fiber. Any way to add protein and fiber to our diet is a bonus.
I was able to make three good sized popsicles using small paper cups. The peanut butter incorporated really well with the almond milk and the mixture was very refreshing. You could omit the chocolate sandwich cookies or add something else, instead, Next time I may add fresh strawberries so they taste like peanut butter and jelly!
The Almond Coconut blend, is amazing over cereal. My youngest son loves milk and I substituted the Almond Coconut blend in his morning cereal to see if he would notice. I could tell that he noticed a difference when he took the first bite. He didn’t ask about the milk though, he asked if I purchased new cereal. After that he continued eating so I think it was a pretty successful switch!
