Almond Milk Smoothie Cubes are the perfect starter for a healthy and fruity breakfast smoothie.
My friend recently got me started on making protein powder smoothies for breakfast after my work out and it took me a few tries to perfect a few that I actually enjoyed. I look forward to sharing those recipes with you soon but for now, toss those regular ice cubes and leave those for a big glass of lemon water.

Frequently Asked Questions
Using almond milk cubes in your smoothie helps you get a richer texture. Normal ice cubes give you a water-like consistency. Here’s a couple of questions you might ask yourself.
How To Combine Separated Thawed Almond Milk?
If you freeze your almond milk to preserve it for a longer time, you might find that it causes your milk to separate irregularly. However, you can fix that problem with a blender.
Blend it for around 30 seconds. You will end up with a delightful foamy glass of almond milk.
Is the Blended Milk as Good as the Fresh One?
I’m not going to lie, you can feel a subtle change in taste when you put in frozen milk into your smoothie if you are a supertaster like me. However, most people won’t find a difference when you use it in a smoothie recipe.
Does the Brand of My Milk Matter?
When you choose the brand of your almond milk, the options can seem endless. But it’s important you understand that all almond milks are not made with the same ingredients. Try different brands of milk and choose the milk that freezes the best. After all, it all boils down to personal preference.
