After going on a hunt, and I mean month long hunt, for the Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Milk I FINALLY stumbled across it at Whole Foods. The funny part of this hunt is, once I finally found it and purchased it, I noticed it starting to pop up on my local grocery stores shelves. So now, I no longer have to scour the earth for it – I can go to the closest grocery store!
Oddly enough I’m not a fan of milk (bad experience as a child in school), at all, but I LOVE chocolate milk. As a kid chocolate milk was the only type of milk anyone could get me to drink. As an adult, I still have a weakness in my heart for chocolate milk.
The greatest part about this almond milk is that 1 cup is only 1 points plus value. Sure, it’s unsweetened, but if you’d prefer the type with the sugar in it there is a version sold in the refrigerator section as well as in the cardboard containers that can be stored on shelves. I decided to make smoothies with it because who doesn’t love a chocolate smoothie?
Serves 1. 2 Points Plus values.
- 1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
- 2 tablespoons PB2 (or you can use the chocolate pb2 if that’s what you have, same points plus)
- 1 packet of equal (or any sugar substitute – optional)
- 1 banana
- 4 strawberries
- 5 ice cubes
Add all your contents to a blender and blend until smooth. Serve up in your favorite beverage glass or travel mug. The mixture when blended makes about 25-30 oz smoothie which is quite a lot!
