Strawberry Smoothie

Strawberry smoothie

Be it for breakfast or for an after-school snack for my son, I love making a smoothie.

Smoothie is an ideal, quick and healthy breakfast. It is a thick drink made by blending different fruits, vegetables or nuts with a dairy product such as yogurt, ice-cream or milk. Many people like to add protein powder or whey powder. You can add sugar or replace it with honey.  Plain yogurt or flavored yogurt can be used while making the smoothie. The consistency of smoothie is thick, like a milkshake.

For Strawberry Smoothie, I have used strawberry flavored yogurt, ripe strawberries, and almonds. The flavored yogurt has sugar and ripe strawberries and is sweet. So I have not used any additional sugar. Blending almonds in the smoothie makes it creamy and thick. If you do not have the flavored yogurt, use plain yogurt and add sugar or honey as per your taste. Sometimes you can also add strawberry crush or jam in the smoothie if using plain yogurt.

This smoothie is gluten free and can be enjoyed while fasting (upwaas).

Use this energizing preparation for a healthy breakfast. The recipe takes only a few minutes to prepare but provides both taste and nutrition.
