It’s changed my life knowing I can safely mix a litre of this up and the kids will rapturously sit at the table and have something voluntarily for breakfast, even exclaiming how much they love it and can they have more. Heaven forbid if I try and feed them toast or muesli since they figured out they could have thick shakes for breakfast (just don’t tell them I call them nut milkshakes).
The taste is another life-changer. Fresh creamy almond milk and beautiful organic frozen fruit with a dash of sweet really is what I imagine angels sip, sitting on clouds, for afternoon tea.
We have a selection of frozen fruit that pretty much takes up the entire (small) freezer. We buy a carton load from Goodness Direct (always be sure to google to see if they have a £10 off voucher on their site as they often do), twice a month. Our selection will always include strawberries, raspberries, tropical mix and sometimes blueberries. We have had a few dud blueberry shakes so I buy them less. And sour cherries are amazing, but not so popular with the kids.
If I had to pick out of all of them, it would be a close tie between strawberry, because of their natural sweetness – and tropical mix, because a big glass of creamy yellow happiness that tastes amazing and reminds me of hot days in Rarotonga has a heck of a lot to be said for it.
You might like to refer to my earlier almond milk recipe while I grapple with this recipe plugin that links to tags but because the almond milk recipe doesn’t actually contain any almond milk, it won’t show up on the results page!
The life-changing raspberry nutmilk shake

- Yield: 1L (3 Servings)
- Prep: 5 mins
A drop dead gorgeous recipe, this is so adaptable and quick to make – it's a household staple.
- 800 ml almond milk homemade is best
- 300 grams frozen raspberries
- 3 tbsp agave syrup you can use rice syrup, maple syrup etc if you prefer
- In the VitaMix (or similar) blend all ingredients on high for 45 seconds.
- Ensure all the raspberries do blend and don't end up in a lump at the bottom of the blender.
- Serve into 3 – 4 glasses and enjoy!
- You can keep it refrigerated up to 3 days (or just make a bit less).
If you do refrigerate it, it will probably separate - just shake or blend again and it's fine.
