Opting for soy milk rather than traditional cow’s milk when making healthy fruit smoothies this summer is a Smart Mama move! Lower in carbohydrates, soy milk provides greater nutritional benefits than the milk we grew up enjoying. Studies on soy has shown that a breakfast high in protein, including soy protein, helps increase fullness and decrease appetite better than lower protein breakfast choices. I couldn’t agree more. When I have a breakfast that includes a decent serving of protein I am satisfied far longer than when I opt for a high carb/low protein meal. Do you experience the same? Also, moms should consider that soy milk is especially a great alternative for children with milk, egg or peanut allergies.
I put 8th Continent Soy Milk to the taste test recently with a group of friends. With the South Florida heat setting in, a cold fruit smoothie is a go-to meal for many area moms. Getting my mommy friends to stop for a moment is a challenge so we made the soy milk fruit smoothies at home and then delivered them! Following the recipe below I provided each friend a refreshing smoothie to enjoy.

The reaction was outstanding. Friends loved the smoothies and loved that they were consuming 7 grams of protein, 3 grams of fat and 39 grams of carbohydrates. A full serving of fruit (mango) made this smoothie a well-rounded breakfast or meal choice!
