Homemade Almond Milk

Although I love Silk's Unsweetened Almond Milk, I also like making homemade almond milk on occasion. It's very yummy and nutritious. I highly recommend using a Blendtec for this and follow their directions in the recipe book.

3/4 cup whole, natural almonds
3 3/4 cups purified water (room temp)
3 tsps organic blackstrap molasses
1 1/2 tsp organic vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt

Caribbean Cooler Smoothie

For an after school snack, I made a green smoothie for my kiddos (and me too!). We named this one Caribbean Cooler because of the ingredients but, if you ask my son, he'll tell you it tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream!

1 cup OJ (all natural, not from concentrate)
1 cup water
1/4 cup Shaklee French Vanilla Milk Shake
1 avocado
1 banana
2 cups spinach
Freshly squeezed Lemon juice
