Can I tell you a secret? At least I hope it was a secret, but I have a hard time eating fruit. It is one of the things that I’ve gotten in trouble with my midwife for. This baby is supposed to pop out in just less than 2 months and so I’m really making extra efforts to eat well, not only for her, but also for myself, my 2 year old daughter, and my husband.

One of the ways I like to sneak my fruit in is through smoothies. I prefer to make my smoothies with non-dairy milk and Silk Soymilk is one my of favorites. No cholesterol and some good plant protein too!

While I was being chastened by my midwife for not eating enough fruit, I brought up smoothies, and she also prefers non-dairy milk, like Silk. She said it would make me feel “cleaner.” Guess what? She was right! I actually just drank a Silk smoothie, and I do feel better after drinking a smoothie made with soymilk, vs a cup of good ‘ol 2%.

And yesterday I ate an entire banana. (This is a really big deal, guys. Just ask my husband. Normally I won’t kiss him after he eats a banana sliced on his cereal!) And not a banana baked into a dessert, but a nice, raw, potassium-filled banana in this Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie. I used Vanilla Silk Soymilk and I LOVED how the vanilla enhanced the banana and peanut butter. It was so smooth and creamy.

Want to know my secret for making creamy, icy smoothies?

Before you start your smoothie freeze some soymilk in your favorite ice-cube tray (Silk works really well for this, too). When blending your smoothie use your soymilk-cubes instead of water ice-cubes and your smoothie will stay nice and creamy, instead of getting all watered down as the ice-cubes melt. Since I learned this secret I always have a tray of milk cubes in my freezer, for whenever I want to whip up a smoothie.

I probably don’t have to tell you, but Silk Soymilk is great for more than just smoothies. I use it on my cereal, for making chia seed pudding, or just for drinking by the glass. It is an important part of my health and wellness.

If you are a fan of smoothies, I bet you’ll love smoothie bowls too. I have been eying Eat You Way Clean’s Peaches n’ Kale Smoothie Bowl. What a great way to start the day.

  1. […] A few months ago I was introduced to Banana Water while I was at the Food Allergy Blogger’s Conference in Denver. I have never liked eating bananas, I have a texture issue with them. But I know that bananas have a lot of great nutrients that my body needs, like potassium. I am always on the lookout for ways to “sneak” bananas into my own diet, like in this peanut butter banana smoothie. […]
