When I first started making smoothies I used to use water as my liquid base. However, almond milk as a liquid base is so much better. The addition of almond milk provides an additional nutritional kick to your smoothie and it also makes the texture of the smoothie creamy. An added plus is almond milk has a mild flavor so it combines well with most ingredients. Below you will find some of our favorite almond milk smoothie recipes.

How To Make an Almond Milk Smoothie
The beauty of almond milk is it has a bland taste so it won’t overwhelm the taste of your smoothie. Additionally, it makes the smoothie more nutritionally dense than using plain water.
For your smoothies, you can use store-bought or homemade almond milk. Store-bought almond milk is more convenient, however, make sure there are no additives added. Alternatively, you can make your own almond milk. It is simple to prepare and you can store it for 4-5 days.
When you are making an almond milk smoothie you can add the liquid, then your fruits and vegetables, and finally you can add products such as nut butter, seeds, and spices.
