Comfort Food 5: Strawberry Smoothie

2 10 2006

Hmmm… guess you can tell that strawberries are just coming in to season here! Here’s my recipe for a strawberry smoothie (or strawberry milkshake, if you prefer to call it that).

All ingredients are approximate – adjust portions to suit your taste.

Into a blender, add the following:

  • 20+ washed and hulled strawberries
  • About a cup of Greek-style creamy yoghurt
  • About 2 cups of milk
  • About a tablespoon of honey
  • About 2 teaspoons of powdered malt (optional)

Before the blitz!

Blend together for a minute, or until you get a nice frothy mix. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg (optional).

After the blitz 2

I use this same recipe for pretty much any fruit smoothie – banana, apricot, peach, etc. Just change the fruit according to the season.
