There has been a juicing craze in the past couple of years, but I am not big on drinking juice and never got on that bandwagon. I don’t eat quite enough fruits and so I wanted a delicious recipe for a smoothie that I would really enjoy drinking often. My sister-in-law is a nutritionist and after discussing it with her, she explained that although juicing helps you acquire your recommended daily intake of fruits and vegetables, you lose the fiber and some of the nutrients. She advised me to stick to smoothies instead (not as a meal replacement, of course). I usually like to add fruits to plain yogurt or cereal for breakfast, and that’s how I got the idea for this smoothie.
Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie:
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup strawberries
- 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
- 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
- 1/3 Avocado (about 4 medium-size slices)
- A handful of Ice
Serving Size: 2
Prep time: 5 minutes
For those who do not like the taste of almond milk, you can replace it with regular or soy milk, but you will need to add honey for sweetness. If you prefer your smoothie a bit chunky, then don’t mix it in the blender for too long and you can even eat it with a spoon. This recipe yields a big portion so make sure to share!
I hope you enjoy my strawberry blueberry smoothie, and I would love to hear your feedback or any alternative variations you come up with.
