Simple Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

Nutty strawberry flavour makes this chilled, creamy, and delightful meal crave-worthy.  

– 1 ½ cups to 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk or water – 10 ounces (2 cups) frozen strawberries, thawed for 5 to 10 minutes* – 1 ½ cups frozen bananas (I freeze my bananas in ½″ slices) – ¼ cup almond butter – Optional nutrition boosters: ¼ cup old-fashioned oats and/or 2 tablespoons flax seed – 1 to 2 teaspoons maple syrup, if desired for sweetness 

Ingredients

Mix everything in a blender, starting with almond milk.  

Instructions

Step 1

Blend slowly until the blender starts moving, then speed up as fast as possible (or use a smoothie option).   

Step 2

Scrape the sides with your blender's tamper. Wait a few minutes before trying again if strawberries won't split apart.   

Step 3

Use up to ½ cup milk as needed.If the smoothie is smooth and creamy, add maple syrup to taste.  

Step 4

Serve the smoothie in 2–4 glasses, depending on your preference. Serve now!
