When it comes to adding liquids to smoothies, I often add almond milk, coconut milk, or just plain water. Sometimes I even add green tea to my smoothies, believe it or not.
Lately though, I’ve been using (unsweetened) almond milk, as it has less calories than dairy milk and coconut milk, but it still makes my smoothies creamy and tasty.
Plus, with almond milk, I find that my smoothies are lighter and it brings out the flavors of the other ingredients better.
In this article, I am going to share with you nine absolutely delicious almond milk smoothie recipes that I hope you will enjoy as much as I do.
9 Smoothies With Almond Milk
Here they are, in no particular order, nine tasty smoothies with almond milk.
Check these recipes out, try them yourself, and feel free to mix up the ingredients to suit your personal needs.
1. Peach Spinach Smoothie
This super tasty peach spinach smoothie works best during the warmer summer months, for me at least. Spinach is definitely one of favorite greens to add to my smoothies, because they blend so well with fruits and other vegetables.
Peaches and nectarines are also my favorite fruits to eat in summer because of their unique texture and refreshing flavors. So if I can combine spinach and peaches in one smoothie, with almond milk as the base liquid, I’m sold!
I personally love drinking this smoothie first thing in the morning. The peaches and banana mix really well with the spinach, and the taste overall is refreshing and energizing.
The small teaspoon of honey adds that little bit of sweetness that is so nice when drinking this as a breakfast replacement, especially with the small handful of almonds thrown in.
- 1 large cup fresh spinach leaves
- 1 large cup peach slices (fresh or frozen)
- 1 small banana
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 small handful of almonds (optional)
- 1/2 cup ice cubes (optional)
2. Dragon Fruit Blueberry Smoothie With Almond Milk
Dragon fruit is my favorite tropical fruit, and if I do happen to find them in the grocery store, I make sure I buy a few of them.
In this particular dragon fruit smoothie recipe, I am mixing blueberries, bananas and dragon fruit into one ridiculously delicious drink.
The extra ginger and mint make this almond milk smoothie even better, with so many different flavors that work so well together. I personally don’t like the frozen dragon fruit packs, but if you can’t find fresh dragon fruit, then it’s a good alternative.
- 1 whole dragon fruit (fresh)
- 1 small cup blueberries
- 1 banana (fresh or frozen)
- 1 tsp grated ginger
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 small cup ice cubes
- 1 mint leaf (garnish, optional)
3. Delicious Dairy Free Mango Smoothie
Just writing about this mango smoothie alone makes me want to make another one right now. I like this smoothie recipe because it is so simple yet it’s packed with lots of nutrients.
This super delicious smoothie recipe contains one cup unsweetened almond milk, which carries the flavors of the sweet fruits very well. The flax and chia seeds add extr nutrients that complement the fruits nicely.

4. Berry Orange Smoothie With Almond Milk
This smoothie reminds me of Fall somehow, perhaps because it’s meant to boost your immunity.
The unique mix of strawberries, cranberries and orange juice works surprisingly well and will give you a ton of vitamin C when you most need it.
This recipe also includes one banana, a bit of lemon juice, a teaspoon of honey, and, of course, 4 oz worth of unsweetened almond milk. It’s a great mix that tastes absolutely fantastic.

5. Glowing Green Smoothie
The healthiest of smoothies are green smoothies, or so they say. I love this smoothie recipe because it has ingredients like avocado and spinach balanced with sweet and zesty pineapple.
Using almond milk for this recipe instead of other creamier liquids makes so much sense since the avocado already provides the richness and creaminess.
After drinking a serving of this glowing green smoothie, you will feel and know that you had something very healthy and nutritious.

The flavor combos are just what you would expect from a classic carrot cake but without baking. It is practically a liquid cake, and I loved how it turned out.

The antioxidants from blueberries combined with vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats from almonds make this smoothie a great way to start my day.
The sweetness of the berries, the solid almonds, and the creamy almond milk work very well together. And when you add the almond butter, the mape syrup and the protein powder, you have yourself quite a nutritious meal.
