DIY Blended Coffee - Recipes with almond milk

I've been drinking smoothies with almond milk for years, I'm pretty sure that is lesson #1 in How to be a vegetarian. It's easier on your stomach, has fewer calories, a little boost of protein and gives your smoothies a subtle nutty flavor. Lately, my morning smoothie has been switched out with a morning blended coffee. Two birds, one stone!

Portland is having a major heat wave right now and all I want to do is lay on the couch with something cold to drink and not move all day (have I mentioned that almost no houses here have A/C?). The hot weather is not my favorite but I'll take any excuse to drink frozen coffee all day. Or these peach-mango-almond milk popsicles too!

The "icy"-ness of these type of drinks usually melt pretty fast so you have to sip quick—or maybe thats just me and my crazy hot house right now.

Blended Coffee

1 cup cooled double strength coffee—I used a french press to brew mine)
1/2 cup silk almond milk—I used the silk almond milk protein + fiber  which I found at Safeway
2-3 tablespoons of honey or desired sweetener
1 cup ice

Add all ingredients to blender and blend until everything is mixed and the ice is super fine. I used a vitamix so it only took about 10 seconds. Any blender of food processor will do the trick though!
