Each year I host a Smoothie-a-Day Challenge, to introduce people to delicious, plant based smoothies. Each week I send participants a new recipe, a corresponding ingredient list for the week and some preparation and nutritional tips. All I ask is that participants commit to trying the new smoothies each day. We share our experiences on the Plantiful Plates Smoothie Challenge Facebook Page and get support and tips from those taking part in the challenge with you!

There’s no better time to take up this challenge, July will be hot and smoothies are cold and hydrating, and these smoothies will be filled with seasonal, delicious fruits and vegetables.

Plantiful Plates Dairy-Milk Alternative
In my plantiful kitchen I make a variety of dairy milk alternatives–almond milk, cashew milk, hemp milk, seed and nut milk, and nut milk blends. All of these are so easy to make at home and do not include the preservatives, emulsifiers and flavours which are added to store-bought versions.

You could leave the sweetener out if you want to keep it versatile for savoury uses or just prefer an unsweetened milk. Continue reading “Vanilla Almond Milk”
