Breeze Milk Feature, Giveaway and a Recipe!

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!

I’m always on the hunt for something new that tastes good and my entire family will enjoy. I decided long ago that I'm not a short order cook so I try to find products and recipes that we can all have.  One of my friends buys three different types of milk for her family on a weekly basis (coconut for herself, regular for her old school hubby and 1% for her kids) which has always seemed silly to me and certainly not cost effective!  Recently, we were able to try out Blue Diamond's Breeze Milk and we all enjoyed it. Blue Diamond Breeze Milk is available chilled or in a Tetra Pak. The Tetra Pak cartons do not need to be refrigerated until ready to be used. Product quality and nutrients are preserved thanks to ultra pasteurization (a heat treatment that ensures food is free from harmful bacteria) in combination with the packaging’s special barrier layers that lock out light, moisture and air and lock in all the goodness of the product.  Once recycled, Tetra Pak cartons become things like tissue products, building materials, railway ties, and even flower pots. For more information on carton recycling, visit here.

We tried a couple different types of Blue Diamond Breeze Milk and we liked the Unsweetened Original in Almond Coconut most.  It's a blend of both Almond and Coconut Milk and is creamy with a touch of coconut.  It has no added sugar, is soy and dairy free and has 40 calories a serving.  I love that it's great in cereal, baking and cooking.  We couldn't taste any difference!  My coffee did taste a little different but it was creamy and much better than the alternatives I've tried in the past.  The girls loved it in their smoothies too!  

The Scoop...what is Blue Diamond Breeze Milk?
Almond Breeze is a nondairy milk alternative that's calcium-enriched and free of dairy, lactose, gluten and soy.  A great alternative for people with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies.

Blue Diamond Breeze is available in Orginal, Chocolate, Vanilla flavors and unsweetened varieties.  Their new line, features Almond Coconut and is available in Original and Vanilla and Unsweetened Original and Vanilla.  Be sure to follow them on facebook here for coupons, promotions and info about more of Breeze!
