Strawberry Smoothie

Delicious Vegan Strawberry Smoothie

Here’s a new smoothie to start your week!  The inspiration for this strawberry smoothie comes from Whole Living.  I adjusted the ingredients and have made a few different versions every time I have made it.  The version here is my favorite.   There are no “greens” in this smoothie like the kale or spinach smoothies (also delicious) I have previously posted.  This strawberry smoothie reminds me of a strawberry milkshake, especially if you keep the consistency thick.  I also like to really whip it up so a foam forms on top.  I substituted agave for honey that was in the original recipe.  I also added 6 ice cubes to help give it a frosty milk shake-y taste.  Another great idea would be to freeze the banana ahead of time in a plastic bag, remove, cut into chunks and then place in the blender with the other ingredients.  This would make the smoothie more of a frozen drink.

Delicious Vegan Strawberry Smoothie

What you will need:  1 ripe banana, 1 cup strawberries ( I used frozen), 1 cup almond milk (you could use regular or any non-dairy milk), 1 teaspoon agave (or honey), 6 ice cubes and 1/4 cup orange juice (optional).  Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy and frothy!  This smoothie can be stored in the frig for later.  What a great breakfast this would make for people on the go, commuters, and kids getting ready during hurried mornings.

Please let me know how you like it if you try it!  Or if you vary the ingredients and come up with a winner, let me know.  I’d love to hear from you.  Bon apetit!

      I recently discovered freezing bananas and it has been great for so many banana recipes, even banana bread!

    Yum!! My brother always orders a strawberry smoothie when we go to our favorite breakfast restaurant. He used to ask for OJ instead of milk, until he realized he was allergic to oranges… But he always asked for extra whipped cream on top! Yours looks much healthier, but just as sweet. :]

    (P.S. I think you might be missing the strawberries from the ingredients in your printable version… Just wanted to let you know!)
