If you’re like me, you’ve probably been pilfering your pantry during this pandemic to make some of your meals and snacks. Today, I want to share with you two of my favorite pantry must-haves — Almond Breeze and Blue Diamond Snack Almonds!
I always keep shelf stable Almond Breeze in my pantry to instantly upgrade my recipes — from creamy casseroles and soups to baked goods. I also enjoy drinking the plant-based dairy alternative on its own, on cereal, in smoothies and even in my coffee and tea. Here are a few of my favorite overnight oat recipes from Almond Breeze. They are delicious and satisfying!
Also, stress causes me to crave chocolate more than ever, so for something that is deliciously and really chocolatey, I like chocolate Almond Breeze. Since it’s fortified and isn’t loaded with excessive added sugar, it’s a chocolate treat I can feel good about.
And for s fun and satisfying snack, my family loves these Blue Diamond snack almonds. They come in more than a dozen flavors and some of my favorites at the moment include Salt n Vinegar, Wasabi & Soy and Spicy Dill Pickle. There’s a flavor for everyone in your family ‑from savory to sweet!
Almonds are a great snack options because they’re packed with essential nutrients including vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, protein and fiber. And, thanks to the dynamic duo of protein and fiber, they will help keep you satisfied.
