Questions & Tips
Freezing almond milk is really simple, but I still have a few tips that will help you use them and enjoy them!
Why Use Almond Milk In Smoothies
Why do you use almond milk in smoothies instead of water? Well, when you use almond milk cubes in your smoothie, it helps you get a richer texture. Normal ice cubes give you a water-like consistency. If you like thick, rich smoothies, then almond milk is your best bet!
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 almond milk, the options can seem endless. But it’s important you understand that all brands of almond milk 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.
Can I Use Other Kinds Of Milk?
Absolutely! Almond milk is a very popular choice for smoothies, but you can also use other
milks such as oat and soy. For smoothies, we prefer going the plant-based route, but you can
also freeze cow’s milk.
Mash the Fruits Before You Cube Them
Be sure to mash your fruits before adding them to the ice cube trays. Bananas are definitely
one of the easiest fruits to turn to smoothie cubes.
Add Honey to the Mix
Looking to add some sweetness to the mix? Drizzle some honey onto your mashed fruit before
Store the Cubes in a Freezer Bag
If you want to batch-make these smoothie cubes, feel free to add them into a freezer bag once
they’re frozen. This way you can use your trays to freeze more milk and fruit.
