Pops and Some Breeze and a Giveaway

We’ve reached the dog days of summer, those last few lazy August days before the crispness of fall arrives along with the back-to-school routines, football games, and…

Wait!  I don’t want to get ahead of myself.  It’s STILL summer and even though the stores showcase school supplies and Halloween candy…

Wait!  There I go again.

Let’s soak up the last drips of summer by making some cool treats.  Grab some popsicle molds (ours are from IKEA and Jelly Belly) and let’s go.

I have had a couple of cartons of Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk that Blue Diamond sent me and have been thinking of a fun way to feature their product here on the blog.  Even better, I’ve been pinning some recipes to my “Drinks and Frozen Treats” board waiting for the perfect opportunity.

My little guy and I came up with some berry ones of our own.  We call them “Berry Boppers.”

1 & 1/2 cups berries (fresh or frozen)

1 tablespoon sugar

2 cups Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk

1-2 tablespoons honey or agave nectar (optional)

Bring berries and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan.  Stir for about 2 minutes making sure the mixture doesn’t burn.  Set aside to cool.

Pour the almond/coconutmilk into a food processor or blender and add the berry mixture plus the honey or agave nectar. Blend together and pour into molds.  Refrigerate any excess mixture (for up to two days) and save for the next round of popsicles. Freeze for at least three hours or preferably overnight.  Enjoy!

***

This gets even sweeter!  I have THREE coupons for free shelf stable Almond Breeze to give away, thanks to the company.

Did you know? Almondmilk is free of ALL of the following: dairy, soy, lactose, cholesterol, peanuts, casein, gluten, eggs, AND MSG.  It’s great if you have allergies in the family or want to avoid certain ingredients in your diet. {Note: popsicles do have added sugar.}

Almond Breeze is available in original and vanilla flavors in the shelf stable and refrigerated varieties.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED!  Thanks to all who entered.  Thanks to random.org the three randomly-selected winners are Kim, Mary, and Lindsey.  Oh, and I have an extra coupon so the bonus winner is Melissa!

TO ENTER: leave a comment by midnight EST on Wednesday, August 15th saying how you’d use your Almond Breeze.   Would you make popsicles, over your cereal, in the baby’s sippy cup, smoothies, or perhaps a recipe such as Thai curry?

 Winners will be notified by the end of next week.

Thank you to Blue Diamond and the Moms Meet program for sponsoring this giveaway!

    MMM…those Popsicles look delicious. I would use the Almond Breeze in this popsicle recipe. Looks super yummy. I would try the vanilla flavor over bowl of cereal with some fruit. Or maybe over some freshly sliced peaches……mmmm. There are sooo many choices!

  2. Kristin DeWees says

    Yum! We love Almond Breeze, and with K being dairy-free, we use it everyday. I’ve never tried the almond/coconut blend, though! Looks good!!

  3. Sarah says

    Oh- those Popsicles look delicious! Would possibly try the smoothie route too- yum!!

    I love almond breeze and the coconut version too. I use for cereal, baking, and just plain as a refreshing drink with beneftts of some protein. Thanks Erika!

  5. Kim Williams says

    I actually used Almond Breeze when making a coconut curry dish. Since I can’t drink normal milk, this was a great alternative. Happy Summer, E!

  6. Sara Burns says

    I love Almond Breeze and am going to see if the cousins like your pop’s as much as you do! I use Almond Breeze over cereal and I always use it as a substitute for all recipes that call for milk. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Helen says

    Almond Milk is the only milk-type product that I drink—tastes great with cookies as my mid-afternoon snack:)

  8. Melissa says

    I would use the almond milk- coconut milk as a substitute for cow’s milk. One of our kids has an allergy to milk protein, so we’ve been trying out different alternatives, including rice milk and sunflower seed milk.

    Seeing those frozen pops brought back memories of when I made them with my kids when they were little….so fun! I use Almond Breeze on my cereal and in my coffee or tea…I will have to try making the pops sometime with my grandson….when he gets some teeth:)

    What a GREAT idea to use Almond Breeze to make homemade popsicles! LOVE it! I”m going to try this tomorrow. Our whole family uses Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze in our cereal every morning as well as in our smoothies. Soooo tasty!!!
