The Best Strawberry Smoothie
Even with such a seemingly basic recipe, there’s actually a trick that makes some strawberry smoothies taste better than others.
The trick is to use frozen strawberries instead of adding ice, because this will result in a thicker and creamier smoothie with a much deeper strawberry flavor.
If using fresh strawberries, just cut off the stems and freeze them beforehand, or you can buy the berries already frozen. Before blending, thaw them just enough so they aren’t rock hard and can be easily blended.
Serve for breakfast, with homemade Vegan Donuts
For a chocolate strawberry smoothie: Add 1 tbsp cocoa powder to the recipe before blending. If desired, you can also add a squirt of chocolate syrup or top with mini chocolate chips.
For keto strawberry smoothies: Use canned coconut milk as the milk of choice, and sweeten with erythritol, stevia, or your favorite low carb sweetener. Top with Coconut Whipped Cream.
For a strawberry protein shake: Simply add 1 tbsp of your favorite protein powder to the blender. For an added protein boost, choose a yogurt or milk high in protein.
For a vegan strawberry smoothie: As long as you use a plant-based (dairy free) milk, such as almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or soy milk, this smoothie is naturally vegan. It’s also gluten free and can be made without refined sugar.
For a fruit smoothie: Feel free to replace half of the strawberries with blueberries, diced pineapple, banana, mango, or another fruit of your choice. Be sure to freeze the fruit prior to blending for a thicker smoothie.
