Strawberry Smoothie Recipe
A classic strawberry smoothie needs no preparation as such. Four basic ingredients with a bunch of options available for customization can make that perfect rosy and creamy smoothie. Follow the basic recipe below and take out just 10 minutes from your busy life to find the way to serenity.
How to make it?
Depending on the size of the strawberries and the serving heads, you need to get a hold of a modest number of strawberries. Don’t forget to count your smoothie craving as well. Then cut those fruits into pieces so that it can easily go into a blender. The best way is to remove the green tops and then cut them in at least two halves.
Pop those red tiny pieces into a blender. A food processor will also work. Nothing extraordinary is required for this; just use the regular one.
Put the milk into the blender. Normal milk with fat will give a creamy, thick texture to the smoothie. Wait. Are you on diet? You must opt for soy or almond milk then. For the ones allergic to milk, yogurt is there at your rescue, guys.
Trust us, all of the options can do wonder. Strawberry smoothie is magical that way!
Throw a decent amount of ice in the blender as well. Ice is another ingredient that can provide thickness to the drink. However, it is up to you how you want your finished product to be. If you don’t need much thickness, add ice at the end and no need to blend. Your smoothie, your choice!
Switch the blender on!
Keep stirring in between with a spoon to make the last chunks of strawberries and ice smoothie-ready; make sure to unify everything.
Is it almost done? Stop the blender for a while, put the honey into it, and blend it again for last few seconds. Once again, your taste buds need to be put on a test (or taste?). If the strawberries are sweet enough, you may not need that extra punch of sweetness. If you end up adding too much sugar or honey, you can always balance it out by adding more fruits or milk. You will eventually have more smoothie at the end, and that surely sounds great!
Pour the smoothie in a glass; a chilled glass is even better. Garnish, well if you really want or just drink it and savour!
More fruits? Add some raspberries, pineapples, mangoes, and whatever you want. Just mix it up!
You can add quick oats, ground flax, walnuts, peanuts, cashews, or almonds and get a boost. Make your kid eat that tasty and healthy drink easily.
