When I think about summer during the cold winter months, I imagine lazy mornings spent enjoying a huge breakfast with my kids, but then summer actually arrives and I’m reminded once again how busy we get. It’s often difficult to maintain healthy habits during the change in schedule with vacations, kids activities, and just generally enjoying the sun and outdoors.
One way to keep eating healthy during the summer is to enjoy the abundance of summer fruit available. What about pairing all those delicious berries, stone fruits, and fresh vegetables with Silk’s newest product, Silk Almond Coconut Blend? Here are three ways you can whip up simple, dairy-free breakfasts this summer.
One of the easiest ways to pack a bunch of produce into your breakfast is making green smoothies. Just blend about 12 ounces of Silk Almond Coconut Blend with a handful of fresh spinach, frozen bananas, and any seasonal fruit you can get your hands on. You could even add some peanut or almond butter to get more protein.
I love the extra flavor that comes with the Almond Coconut Blend — much more exciting than plain old milk.
This idea is crazy simple — just use Silk Almond Coconut Blend in place of milk in your morning cereal. It has less calories than cow’s milk and and less fat than the whole milk I typically serve my kids. Try your hand at making you own granola or grab a high-quality variety at the store and top with fresh fruit.
Last, how about using Silk Almond Coconut Blend to whip up a morning latte? It will give a nutty flavor to your coffee so you’ll probably only need a touch of honey or other sweetener. Add a bowl of fresh fruit and you have a super nutritious and filling breakfast or morning snack! Learn how to make a latte or mocha at home without an espresso maker here.
