June is Dairy Month at Safeway + Get Free Movie Tickets! #JuneDairyMovies

Our local grocery store in Nipomo is Vons (also known as Safeway).  I remember how excited everyone was to have our own grocery store (with a gas station even) in Nipomo!  I can definitely say that with my Vons card, I’ve saved more money than I would have ever saved without it.  Plus, I earn additional savings with the Vons Just For U.  Well, the month of June offers even more savings!  Do you like going to the movies?  If so, you’ll definitely want to take advantage of the free movie tickets you can earn during June – Dairy Month at your local Vons or Safeway!

During the month of June, with ever $40 worth of select dairy products you purchase, you have the opportunity to earn 2 movie tickets.  That’s right people – FREE movie tickets!!  When you go to checkout with $40 worth of qualifying products, the Catalina coupon machine will provide you with a coupon code/voucher to be redeemed on a JuneDairyMovies/Ice Age/Safeway branded landing page for two free movie tickets.

Searching for the dairy products that are part of the June Dairy Movie Tickets Program was so much easier than I imagined.  Each item that was included in the program had a “June Dairy Month” picture with a picture of the characters from Ice Age.  Dairy products include Simply Juices (variety of flavors), Sargento sliced cheeses, Ricotta Cheese, Yoplait Yogurts, Cream Cheese, Reddi Whip Whipped Cream, Almond Milk, Soy Milk, and so many more!  The $40 added up so quickly and when I went to the register, I received a bunch of coupons and then the long-awaited voucher for FREE movie tickets.  SWEET!!!

With summer now upon us, it’s the perfect time to create easy and yummy recipes with your dairy products from Safeway!  You can also check out fun and easy recipe ideas on Facebook.  With the heat of summer comes the craving for cool and refreshing treats, such as a delicious smoothie.


– 12 Ice Cubes
– 1 cup Simply Orange Juice (you can also use Silk Soy Milk, Silk Pure Almond Milk, or Chocolate Milk in the place of the Orange Juice)
– 1 Banana (cut in 3 pieces)
– 10 Strawberries
– 1 Scoop Chocolate or Vanilla Protein Powder
– 2 tablespoons Jif Smooth Peanut Butter
– 1 individual-sized French Vanilla Yogurt
– Reddi Whip Whipped Cream

My family loves strawberries, so a smoothie is the perfect way to serve up a healthy and cool treat to beat the summer heat!  This recipe has some of my own personal favorite ingredients, including strawberries, peanut butter, chocolate, and a little bit of whipped cream!  Plus, I love that it’s super easy to make this smoothie!

1 – Add 12 to 14 Ice Cubes to your blender.

2 – Add 1 cup of Simply Orange Juice (you can also use Soy Milk, Almond Milk, or Chocolate Milk)

3 – Add one Banana (cut or broken into 3 pieces)

4 – Add 10 to 12 Strawberries (with green stem cut off)

5 – Add 1 scoop of Chocolate or Vanilla Protein Powder

6 – Add one individual-sized French Vanilla Yogurt

7 – Add 2 tablespoons Jif Smooth Peanut Butter

8 – Turn on blender and run until all ingredients are combined and ice is crushed.  It will have the consistency of a smoothie.  I usually run my blender for about a minute just to make sure all ingredients are crushed and combined.

9 – Pour smoothie in a glass and top with Reddi Whip Whipped Cream (if desired).  Sit back and enjoy your Easy-to-Make Super Summer Smoothie!

    Looks delicious! We don’t have a Vons, but do have a Tom Thumb, which is the same company I believe. Great place to pick up everything that’s needed.
