Quick Answer

Make a berry, protein or green smoothie using almond milk. Berries are a natural choice for smoothies of all kinds, and they pair well with almond milk. Combine 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of mixed frozen berries in a blender to make a simple drink. Add half a banana or 1/2 cup of yogurt to give the drink a creamy texture. Alternatively, add 1/4 cup of orange juice to give the smoothie a little tartness.

Almond milk is very low in protein, so adding protein-packed ingredients to a smoothie helps make the drink more filling. Combine 1 cup of almond milk with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of almond butter and 1 scoop of protein powder. Another option is to add 1 or more tablespoons of finely chopped almonds to give the smoothie more texture and protein.

Make leafy greens palatable for picky eaters by adding them to an almond milk smoothie. Wash and roughly chop spinach, kale or a combination of the two. Blend together 1 cup of almond milk, 1 cup of the greens and 1 banana. Add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds or flaxseed meal for added nutritional value. If the drink isn't sweet enough, blend it together with 1/2 cup of frozen berries and 1 teaspoon honey.
