#Silkology Almond Milk-Berry-Banana-Green-Power Smoothie

Making smoothies is one way I get healthy protein and fruit and vegetables into my little son. He helps me make them often, and he doesn’t mind that I add sweet potato powder or a banana to it, even though I can’t get him to eat either of those in any other form.

Silk® soy, almond and coconut milks are perfect choices for your healthy lifestyle. Silk is committed to making the world a healthier place through socially responsible and environmentally sustainable business practices and uses and renewable energy.

Did you know that all of the Silk products are made with non-GMO ingredients? All of their beverages are certified by the Non-GMO Project. Since I try to only feed my family non-GMO food, that makes Silk products ideal for us.

I started with their their Straw-Nana Flip recipe:

  • 1 cup Silk soymilk or almond milk (I used almond)
  • 1 Tbsp sweetener of choice (I used a pack of Xylitol)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup diced frozen strawberries (I used organic mixed berries)

and then I added my own spin:

  • 1 tsp of organic hemp powder (excellent source of fiber, protein, and iron)
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 packages of dry baby food (peas)

I always add baby food to my smoothies because it’s so easy to add vegetables that way. I usually add one of those pouches with fruit and vegetables, but I happened to have a sample of dry baby food that added even more green to this drink.

Voila! In a minute I had a super-healthy drink:

This drink, served in small Ball or vintage glasses I have a lot of, would be a hit at any summertime gathering.

The Bleasdale Clan is very large and we don’t need a special reason to get together. We usually see each other at least once a week, and this drink would be a great “snack” when the kids are starting to ask when dinner is ready, or as a healthy desert alternative.

Do you have a special event coming up, a bridal or baby shower, barbeque or birthday party? Incorporate a blended drink in your festivities!

Silk inspired me to think outside of the bowl with their new Silkology-inspired drink recipes.
