Food is the way to mom’s heart – and there’s no better way to say “I love you” like a home cooked meal. Brunch is a special weekend meal and this Mother’s Day, May 10th, is the perfect time to treat mom to a brunch as unique as she is. From refreshing drinks and sinful pastries to gourmet coffee and savoury frittatas, the options for brunch are endless.
Almond Breeze beverage is a great lactose-free replacement for cooking, and has a nutty-flavour to refresh any recipe. With spring and Mother’s Day coinciding, the classic smoothie is a beloved brunch dish, which provides a ‘breezy’ cool down. The new Almond Breeze Okanagan Cherry Mint Smoothie is a refreshing treat for mom to enjoy.
Okanagan Cherry Mint Smoothie (2 servings)
2 cups frozen cherries
1 ½ cups Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla
½ cup fresh mint
2 tablespoons hemp
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Raw honey (optional)
Place cherries in blender topped with Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla and pulse to mash. Rinse fresh mint, cut off woody stems and add. Add hemp seeds, cinnamon and raw honey, if using, and blend until smooth.
