I haven’t had a good strawberry smoothie in a while, so when the craving hit me this morning, I went to the market to find the juiciest berries I could find. I usually don’t have a method to my smoothie combinations, and just use any ripe fruits or veggies I have in the kitchen. Well, not just any fruits or veggies. I did try a funky spinach- pineapple-strawberry mix once that I hated, but that’s another story. Today, I had some pretty ripe bananas on hand, so it was a no-brainer. Also, I’ve been using coconut milk instead of almond milk and oh my, it is amazing. If you haven’t tried coconut milk, I recommend the Trader Joe’s brand. It’s the best I’ve tried so far. I also added a couple of other ingredients which you’ll see below. Definitely one I’m keeping in breakfast rotation – it’s perfect with a side of wheat toast topped with almond butter.
Strawberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie (Serves 1)
1 ripe banana
5 (fresh or frozen) large strawberries
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly-grated nutmeg (optional, but I love it)
1 teaspoon honey
Directions : Blend ingredients until smooth…but you already knew that.
