Nutty Strawberry Smoothie
Drinking plain milk is not my thing. Yes I have bad habits and being a woman just past 35 , I know its time I started to drink milk regularly or my bones are going give me trouble . Now for me, drinking milk is like drinking medicine (LOL), my mother in law forces Milo down my throat every time I visit her, well not really force me but she makes this huge mug of Milo and I dutifully drink it down, while my hubby and sis in law give me that knowing smile, both of them know I am not a big fan of the brew.
Anyway even though I am not a milk drinker I love yogurt so I decided to make smoothies more often. For flavor, I threw in some frozen strawberries, which were much cheaper than a fresh punnet of strawberries, an overripe banana , some blanched and sliced almonds , yogurt and milk and whizzed it up. I don't like it too thick , so I leave it to your liking to balance the thickness to your liking.
Recipe : Nutty Strawberry Smoothie
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 tbsp almond flakes. ( or place regular almonds in boiling hot water soak for 15 minutes and remove the skin, it will come off easily).
1 small very ripe banana
3 cups milk
1 cup plain yogurt
2-3 tbsp sugar or honey ( choice is yours)
Place everything in blender and whiz it up till smooth.
