Once school gets out this week (finally), the afternoon swim team practice that has caused me so much dinner stress will switch to early morning. Time to switch gears! Now I need a morning kickstart to help us get out to the pool on time. Smoothies with almond milk are just the ticket–lots of fruit, protein and fiber–and I can take them to go.

I picked up some of the new Silk Almond Blends at Safeway last week so I could try them out in my morning smoothies. You'll find both Silk Almond Coconut Blend and Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber in the dairy case. I made a delicious Tropical Green Smoothie with the Almond Coconut Blend, which has 50% more calcium than dairy milk in just 35 calories. It's also a great option if you are working around allergies, since it's dairy, lactose, casein, egg and gluten-free.

Cutting a mango can be really tricky. This tutorial from SimplyRecipes has great pictures if you need a little help. By keeping the mango cubes and crushed pineapple in the freezer, you can avoid needing to add ice to the smoothie. The frozen fruit gives it just the right texture. Of course, you can always pick up frozen mango in the freezer section if you don't want to deal with a fresh one.

Along with the benefits of almond milk, the spinach and mango provide Vitamins A and K. The two fruits add sweetness to the almond milk as well (I always buy the unsweetened version so there's no extra sugar). I use a single-serve smoothie maker to mix my smoothies. It's so much easier than a large blender.

    This looks super easy...perfect for a quick breakfast on the run! I love that you used mango in this recipe...mangoes are so underused as an awesome fruit. Looks like I'll be heading out to grab some Silk! #client

    I love smoothies with almond milk! I don't eat dairy so this is how I manage to get that creamy smoothie taste without yogurt. My typical base is almond milk, fruit, protein powder - don't need much more than that. Nutritious and low calorie!

    I love smoothies, especially in the summer. In addition to almond milk, coconut milk is another yummy alternative to dairy. I usually don't add pineapple but I'll give it a try next time! Sounds delicious!

    4 ingredients makes it doable on the fly. Being able to sneak in some greens for my son who would not eat his veggies is another plus.

    I would be trying out this yummy looking tropical smoothie for sure.
