Sweet Summer Treats

This summer has been a HOT one! 🥵

We're sharing these sweet treats to help you cool off and keep that ice cream craving under control!


*DREAMSICLE NOT-MILK-SHAKE*

Ingredients:

-1/2c fresh squeezed orange juice (I used a combination of mandarins and naval oranges)

-2tbsp cane sugar (added to orange juice + dissolved) (*optional)

-1/2c unsweetened original almond milk

-4 frozen (about 3tsp each) vanilla almond milk creamer cubes

-4 frozen (about 3tsp each) coconut milk cubes

-1c ice cubes



Health Benefits:

-Vitamin C, vitamin A, and calcium support immune, nerve, and bone health

-Sugar is naturally processed by our bodies + is preferable as a sweetener as opposed to sugar alcohols, syrups, and artificial sweeteners for this reason

-Almond milk contains helthier fats + less sugars than traditional dairy options, as well as cleaner protein + brain boosting omega fatty acids

-Coconut milk is high in calcium + lower in saturated fat ("bad" fat) than dairy products. Also aids in hydration

-Added water is never a bad idea when it's this hot out!


Preparation:

-Take a clean ice cube tray and carefully spoon in/pour almond milk creamer and coconut milk. Place in the freezer on a level surface for at least 3 hours

-Once frozen, add 4 coconut milk cubes and 4 almond milk creamer cubes to a blender. Add in 1c regular ice cubes, orange juice, and almond milk. Blend until it's milkshake consistency

-Transfer any leftover coconut milk/almond milk creamer cubes to separate freezer storage bags and keep for future use in dairy-free recipes like curry, smoothies, or coffee

-Recipe makes 2 6oz servings. For larger groups, double or triple the recipe and use a large blender




*PEACHES AND CREAM POWER BOWL*

Ingredients:

-1 fresh/about 1c peach sliced/diced + frozen

-1/2c oats

-1/2c water

-2tbsp vanilla almond milk creamer


Health Benefits:

-Good source of potassium + fiber

-Complex carbohydrate for sustained energy + blood glucose control, can help lower cholesterol

-Hydration

-Almond milk contains helthier fats + less sugars than traditional dairy options, as well as cleaner protein + brain boosting omega fatty acids


Preparation:


-Pro tip: buy peaches fresh + in season and freeze them for use throughout the year. They're freshest + most nutritious this way!

-Slice (or dice) fresh peaches and spread out on a plate or baking sheet to prevent sticking + place in the freezer. Once frozen, transfer to a freezer storage bag for future use.

-Add oats + water to a food processor/blender. Blend until it oats are in small grains (you just made oat milk, btw!)

-Add almond milk creamer + peaches and blend until the mixture thickens and large chunks of peaches are no longer present

-Pour into a bowl and top with homemade granola, mixed nuts, nut butter, seeds- whatever you want!

-Blend the blueberries + lemon juice until there are just a few chunks of blueberry left
