Cool Smoothies & Pacific Foods Giveaway

Happy July 1st! Did you know July is National Berry Month? And not only that, June was Non-Dairy Month (boy, what a busy summer so far!) The awesome folks at Pacific Foods sent me some flavors of their great non-dairy milks to use in recipes – and sponsoring a giveaway for our readers of their delicious non-dairy beverages!


While I have used a lot of Pacific Foods products, I had not tried their Hemp, Oat or 7 Grain Milks – and I can say after…why hadn’t I tried them? There will be even more recipes coming in the next week or two using the Oat – it is wonderful in breakfast and in frappes.

So…since it is National Berry Month and my strawberries are going crazy in my garden (see…maybe planting 150+ plants DID pay off!), and it is shooting rapidly to 90°+ today…nothing calls me more than a thirst and heat quenching smoothie. Well, maybe the heat is a good thing. My first blueberries are blue as well…so let’s celebrate! PS: See the Rafflecopter link at the bottom for our giveaway of all the milks you need to make your own berry smoothie!


Strawberry & Blueberry Smoothie


  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (used almond)
  • ½ cup sliced strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 ripe banana, frozen or normal
  • 1 cup ice cubes


Add everything to a high-speed blender, process on high until smooth, tamping as needed. Serve with a wide straw.


If your berries are not sweet (think early season ones), add a little preferred sweetener, such as maple syrup, as desired, starting with a Tablespoon.

Serves 1.
