Smoothies are the perfect summer staple drinks. They’re filling, refreshing, fruity, healthy, & delicious! Need I say more? I’ve been working on new smoothie recipe ideas, & I came up with this combo! I love strawberries & I love coconut, so it was a win win situation for me! My hubby requested a smoothie as well, therefore today was the perfect time to experiment & to taste test! Hey….. I’m totally here for it! Smoothies are a household favorite over here. And once you get into the rhythm of making healthy choices, it becomes a natural habit! Your need for unhealthy foods/drinks becomes less desirable. You basically have to retrain your tastebuds! Focus on more fruits & veggies. It will literally change your life! I always encourage anyone that comes to me for advice on making a healthy switch, to start with smoothies! Gradually work your way to a healthier you! You can do it! Smoothies are wonderful morning starters, amazing throughout the day, & the ideal night caps! Drink to your hearts desires. Ok, now that I’ve given my smoothie 101, let’s talk about this beauty! Shall we?
1 cup of fresh (or frozen) strawberries
1 frozen banana (well ripened)
1 cup of unsweetened almond/coconut blend
1 tbsp of raw honey (optional for added sweetness)
crushed walnuts (or nuts of choice)
Toss all above ingredients in blender, (with the exception of whip cream/coconut flakes/walnuts) & blend until smooth. Once blended, pour into desired glass, & top with whip cream, coconut flakes, & crushed walnuts. Enjoy!!
