Christmas Giftaway: Almond Breeze Summer Hamper and the Best Gift I've Ever Received

Chanel Paige - Chihuahua Cross Shitzu - The Best Gift I've Ever Received

I am loving the Christmas Blogging Challenge and today - I'm doing two days in one. Yesterday as you know, I forgot to hit publish - so I had to make sure the Wonderful Pistachios Christmas Giftaway was posted first!

Yesterdays question was; "What's your favourite Christmas Song" and for me - that's a tricky one. Michael Buble's Have a Holly Jolly Christmas (actually, I love me some Michael Buble regardless!) always put me in a happy, festive mood but I also love the vocals in Mariah Carey's God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Today's prompt is "Best Gift You've Ever Received". The best gift I've ever received is a tie - but there's one special little girl who may always take the top spot. Chanel wasn't a Christmas present, but a birthday present. 

My parents had spotted Chanel at the pet store with her scruffy little brother and knew straight away I'd love her. They come home and said "we nearly bought you a puppy today" and I freaked out. My Pa immediately piped up and said "BUY IT! I'll buy it!" and before I knew it, we were in the car racing to the pet store. 

I saw her and fell in love. She was a tiny little bunch of fluff with big beautiful eyes and the lady quickly had her in my hands to see if she liked me too. That little pup crawled all over me and wouldn't leave my side. I wanted her so bad - but then at the same time, being the cautious person I am, I wanted to think about it and make sure I wasn't wasting my Pa's money. Why I even needed to think about anything, I'll never know now!

She is the gift that makes me smile and laugh every single day and she is the sweetest little thing you'll ever meet. All she ever wants to do is cuddle and the second you walk in the door she will fuss over you like you're Jesus on Earth - and makes sure she greets you with one of her favourite toys.

But, I want to give a gift to you! Did you think I had too many competitions already? I didn't!

Almond Breeze Hamper Giveaway Competition

If you've read Southern In Law for a while, you'll know that I love Almond Breeze. Thankfully, the team at Almond Breeze Australia and I have teamed up to share the love with you

Each hamper includes:
    Grain Free Granola with Banana and Maple Syrup
  • A copy of the new best-selling book The 20/20 Diet from nutritionist Lola Berry
  • Beach towel
  • Original Almond Breeze
  • Unsweetened Almond Breeze
  • Blue Diamond almonds
  • Digital recipe booklet with recipe ideas
  • Almond Breeze mug

With the goodies, you'll be able to try one of Lola Berry's healthy recipes - like her grain free soaked cinnamon muesli with banana and maple syrup. 


I often bake with Almond Breeze (and use Almond Breeze as a Dairy Free/Vegan Milk Substitute in my recipes). Almond Milk can be used to substitute any type of milk - from regular cow's milk to soy or rice milk and it can be used in any recipe or food. 


The texture of Almond Breeze is just like milk - so it's perfect for using when cooking sauces, baking or when baking soups. Unsweetened Almond Breeze can be used in any recipe, but it's perfect for savoury dishes - whilst the Original Almond Breeze is sweetened and is perfect for baking.

So how do you enter?

Just tell me What Your Favourite Almond Milk Recipe is in the comments below with your email address (Perhaps it might be one of my recipes that you've made!)

For additional entries; 


  • "Like" Almond Breeze Australia and Southern In Law on Facebook 
  • Share the Giftaway with your friends on Facebook and tag Almond Breeze Australia and Southern In Law (you can find the competition post on either page)
PLEASE NOTE: I will need a way to contact you if you are the winner. Please be sure to leave your email address or email me at southerninlaw@gmail.com.
Make sure you leave a separate comment for all of your additional entries!

Competition closes Monday 7th January, 2013 at 11:59am EST. The winner will be chosen by a random generator and notified by email. This competition is only open to Australian Residents. Kristy does not endorse any of the information provided in the 20/20 Diet nor does she endorse any diet. You should always seek the advice of a medical professional in regards to any health condition or concern.

  3. I'd love to make a banana smoothie with almond milk- I haven't had a chance to have Almond Breeze actually, only 'So'..and that was sadly sweetened and tasted like sugar! I'd love to try the unsweetened versions especially!

  6. Overnight Oats with Strawberries & Chia Seeds:

    ½ a cup of organic rolled oats
    1 cup of unsweetened Blue Diamond Almond Breeze
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    2 tsp organic raw honey
    ½ tbsp ground cinnamon
    3 strawberries (sliced)
    Handful of almonds
    1 tsp chia seeds

    Method:

    Soak your oats, vanilla essence, honey and cinnamon in Almond Breeze. Leave to set in fridge overnight.

    In the morning, sprinkle some chia seeds, handful of almonds and sliced strawberries into your overnight oats.

    This make for a perfect, healthy and nutritious breakfast and is unbelievably yummy!

    Mix it up by replacing the strawberries with other fruit (blueberries, raspberries and bananas make great substitutes).

  12. I don't eat animal products, so I use almond milk as a substitute in most recipes. My favourite is Banana Protein Muffins recipe on your site. My boyfriend is on a high protein diet at the moment and loves these as a post-workout snack. I usually substitute chickpea flour in place of plain flour because it's quite a bit higher in protein and gives it a really nice texture.

  15. On a whim one summer's night, with not much food in the house, I brought together some random ingredients and came across a culmination of food fit for the gods! I cooked some chicken in a wok, slowly marinating it in almond milk and then glazed it with honey in the oven. Served with fresh vegetables and rice. A true sensation of taste.
