Hawaiian Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie with Silk
As we enter the new year, not only am I trying to eat healthier but I have also gone primarily dairy free. Why? My daughter has a dairy intolerance, so I had to alter my diet for a while. Luckily, Silk has great dairy free alternatives that I have fallen in love with. I’m taking part in their current campaign this year to rethink what I drink, for me it was simple because I need to cut dairy and they are the perfect alternative! I have been substituting coconut milk in a variety of recipes since I had my daughter last month.
My favorite right now is the Silk Coconut; however, my family enjoys many of their products!
Recently, I tried a new smoothie recipe with Silk Almond and Coconut milk, it turned out fabulous!
A great way to get in nutrition along with feeding picky eaters like those in my household is with smoothies! I can easily add all sorts of ingredients to a smoothie and my son thinks it is the best thing ever. Not only is my son picky, so am I. He gets so excited to drink a smoothie and so does his mommy. Plus, right now I’m very busy so I rarely get a lunch break and having smoothies on hand works out well to get a boost throughout the day.
This Hawaiian Smoothie gave me the best of both worlds; I got my nutrients and am able to day dream about being on the sandy beaches of Hawaii even in the middle of winter!
Another thing I like to add to my smoothies is spinach, although it makes them green it adds a lot of nutrients and veggies without adding a strange flavor. I keep frozen spinach on hand for this very reason.
