After we returned home from our trip, we had to try it. And to be honest, C and I LOVE it more than the other smoothies. This smoothie recipe is fruity and super healthy. She begs for seconds!
Since creating the smoothie, we make it for our morning snack every day. We have tried several different variations such as strawberry and spinach, strawberry banana, raspberry, raspberry banana and banana.
Here is our favorite
- 10-14 strawberries (Wash them and remove stem)
- Ice cubes-4-5 (Optional- I leave them out for the kids-they prefer without. I add mine after I pour their drink)
- water- 1/2-1 cup depending on how thin or thick you like your smoothie. Add less water for a thicker creamy and more water for a thinner smoothie.
- Honey or maple syrup
Modification: If you have a child under 2 and you do not give him/her honey, you can try agave nectar, maple syrup, or see if he/she likes it with no sweetener ( Little A sure does!)
1. Put the strawberries, water, and ice cubes in food processor and puree until smooth.
2. When its the consistency you like, taste it to see if you want to add sweetener. (I pour 1 cup of smoothie for a child that cannot have honey. She still loves it this way.) Then I add 1-2 teaspoons of honey to the rest.
3. Puree to blend.
These smoothies are delicious, healthy, and a refreshing drink during the hot summer days. My daughter begs me for these. Really. We had to go to the store one night because she freaked out when she remembered we were out of strawberries. Go make one! You will love it!
