Blue Diamond Smokehouse and Blue Diamond Bold Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almond Review! #ad #GameChangingFlavors @bluediamond

With the holidays fast approaching and game time upon us, we need to start thinking about what to serve. As a family, we have a tradition in the Kelly household, to have snacks on Christmas Eve. We have meatballs, herring, crackers, cheese, sausage, maybe a fruitcake of stollen. A cheeseball is always nice to have a variety of crackers, celery or carrot sticks, whatever you prefer.

Almonds are packed with vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber, and are associated with a number of health benefits. Just a handful of almonds, approximately one ounce, contains one-eighth of our necessary daily protein, so what better thing to use in a cheeseball than Blue Diamond Almonds. In the recipe that I will be featuring, you can use any kind of Blue Diamond Almonds you want, but if you want a slightly smoky or spicy tang to the cheese, you can use Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds or Blue Diamond Bold Wasabi & Soy Sauce. So enjoy the holidays and that favorite team with Game-Changing Flavors in your nutritious snacks using Blue Diamond Almonds!

Almond Cheese Ball
  • 3/4 cup salted Blue Diamond Smokehouse almonds, chopped
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
  • 1 (8 oz) package Neufchatel cheese
