Dulce De Leche and Banana Smoothie Dulce De Leche and Banana Smoothie ingredients Dulce De Leche and Banana Smoothie Happy Summer!! Yay! We’re celebrating with this super simple smoothie because it’s delicious and sometimes you just want a smoothie thats more like a tasty treat then anything else. Healthy, fresh fruit smoothies are delicious yes, but every now and then we crave something a little more decadent and a little more “treat-like”. The dulce de leche does the trick in this smoothie. It adds a delicious, creamy flavor to the smoothie and incorporates just the right amount of thickness. We love using Almond Breeze almond milk in smoothies to replace our dairy milk, because it adds a subtle nutty flavor that is complemented by the crushed almonds we use to finish the drink.

If you prefer more of a milkshake type of drink, feel free to freeze half the almond milk in ice cube trays and use that to replace at least 1 cup of almond milk. It requires a little more work, but could be totally worth it during the hot summer months ahead of us!

    I am used to do dulce de leche with 1 liter of milk and 250 grams of sugar placed on a pot stirring almost constantly for about 50 minutes and you’ll obtain something absolutely DELICIOUS!!!!
