“Blue Diamond Almond Breeze” Almondmilk Takes Dallas By Storm! 🥛

June 21, 2017 0 Comments 11 Photos

This year Taste of Dallas got a taste of something it liked! Visiting Dallas was Blue Diamond Almond Breeze‘s Homegrown Tour! Joining them on the tour is food expert Chef Patty Mastracco, whom I got to chat with about the brand as we sampled Texas Chili, cornbread and tortillas – all made with Almond Breeze Almondmilk. The tours purpose is to show Dallasites and beyond that Almond Breeze is an easy non-dairy ingredient swap to lighten up your favorite recipes without compromising the taste nor integrity of the recipe! I wanted to share my favorite takeaways from their Dallas stop – including two decadent recipes!

Did You Know: You can keep a supply of this shelf stable product in your pantry for up to 1 year?!

Chef Patty knows a thing or two about food, she taught me:

“Almond Breeze is an ideal better-for-you non-dairy alternative! The benefits are no cholesterol, no saturated fats, [Almond Breeze] is vegan and all varieties except Honey and Reduced Sugar are GMO certified!”

I personally value that I can use this for literally any recipe from savory to sweet and not have the icky side effects of dairy! Speaking of recipes, check out two featured Texas exclusive recipes below!
