Fresh strawberries are abundant at our house right now. Our plants are bearing strawberries faster than we can eat them. I love it though, plenty to share with the grandchildren and neighbors. We have been enjoying fresh fruit smoothies, delish and so nice on a hot day. Today I’m sharing my very simple and quick low fat smoothie recipe with you. I hope you enjoy it.
What You Need
1 Cup low fat milk
1 1/2 Cup ice cubes ( small)
1 Cup Fresh fruit ( washed and cut into chunks)
1 Tbsp sugar substitute (optional) I use splenda ,or use real sugar if you like yours sweeter add a bit more
Blender or Food Processor
Lets Make It! Pour the milk and ice in the blender, cover with the lid and crush well, add fresh fruit and sweetener, cover and process until smooth. (Add more ice if you want it thicker) keep blending (processing) until smooth ( or the consistency you prefer). Serve in a frosted glass add a piece of fresh fruit.
**Katie’s Tid Bits, you can use a cup of frozen fruit too. Also try sweetening with honey for a little something extra ( add it at the end and mix well.) Substitute the milk for vanilla ice cream and you have a the full fat version my husband prefers ! Do you make smoothies at home? What’s your favorite smoothie flavor?
