Happy Tuesday! This is my 2nd Taste of Tuesday week and I am sharing with you all a healthy smo-ake [smoothie shake] I made the other night for dinner. We had a Sunday Funday and I had a mimosa and Bang Bang shrimp tacos for lunch so for dinner a smo-ake was plenty.
You won’t seeing me drink a glass of white milk UNLESS there is an oreo at the bottom and several others for dunking. I use milk in cereal and other recipes, but a glass of it grosses me out. Lately, this almond milk fellow has intrigued me. I came across it in several smoothie recipes and the commercial is kinda catchy. I grabbed a carton of the Silk light version to try it out.
I will be honest, it is a bit weird – it literally tastes like liquid almonds. However, I found it to be very nice in the smo-ake. It made it perfectly creamy, slightly sweet and a nuttiness to it. Will you find me drinking this by the cup full? No way. I will be using it instead of cow milk in my smo-akes, however. Try it out and let me know what you think!
