Helpful hints

  • Try other berries in season.
  • Use your favorite milk or cream substitute, preferably one without phosphate additives.
  • Almond Breeze® almond coconut milk blend does not contain phosphate additives and is low in phosphorus and potassium compared to milk or cream. If you are limiting calcium due to high calcium levels choose another milk substitute as this product does contain calcium carbonate.
