The Summer Solstice has arrived! And while we are still in Strawberry Season (though ending soon, so stock up!), its nice to cool off with a Summer Strawberry Smoothie! And we kept it Vegan, to go easy on your stomach.
Pick up your Strawberries at the Farmers Market, break out the blender, and enjoy!
SERVES: 1, YIELD:1 glass
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 banana, sliced
1⁄4 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup (Pure is best)
2 -4 ice cubes
In a blender, whirl strawberries with banana, milk, maple syrup and ice cubes. Blend until frothy. Pour into a glass or ball jar (for that Farm Fresh feel).
Garnish with sliced Strawberry and banana.
Strawberries are high in antioxidants and have healthy dietary fiber.
*Another tip is to keep the strawberries frozen, then when you blend the smoothie, it will be nice and cool. You could even remove the ice cubes.
