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.

  1. My latest smoothie combo is kale, ginger, blueberry, strawberry, watermelon. I’ve been using coconut water, but I’d love to try the hemp or oat milk.

  2. My favorite milk is coconut milk. And I make a peanut butter, oat, banana smoothie every morning:]

  3. Favorite nondairy milk is almond milk – unsweetened for less sugar and I use it in my oatmeal, cereals and frozen fruit slushies!

  4. I definitely prefer almond milk, but am open to trying new things – including smoothies, which I’ve never made.

  5. I LOVE love love almond milk! And I make a delicious peanut butter sweet potato (yup!) smoothie with unsweetened vanilla almond milk 🙂

  6. I like unsweetened almond milk for smoothies and soy milk in my coffee. I have a green smoothie almost every day. One of my favorites is blueberry-vanilla.
