So, I’ve been trying to curb my unquenchable appetite for bacon, donuts, fried chicken & waffles and all other bad-for-me breakfast things lately. I’ve been reading all kinds of smoothie and juice recipes on the interwebs and have actually found some really tasty and really filling options. I thought I’d share what has become my early go-to…it’s super simple and can be made in just a few minutes, and perfect for when you’re heading out the door in the mornings. It’s what I call the “Very Strawberry Smoothie”.
This flavor-bursting, sugar-free, creamy smoothie only requires 3 ingredients to make. I know strawberries are not in season right now, but I usually try to shop my neighborhood produce market as opposed to a big chain grocery store, because it just seems like they have the more ripe, more flavorful berries. At least during this time of year.
I like things sweet, so I was a little concerned when the wife broke out the unsweetened almond milk. But it was actually really good. If you like it really sweet, you can always use sweetened almond milk, or add some honey, agave syrup, or a banana.
Anyway, if you want to give this a try, let me know what you think. And look for more posts and recipes like this in the future!
