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.


  1. Just yesterday I made a similar milkshake while breaking my fast... loved almonds in it and here you post it! :) I love milk and always try to include it in my diet...

  2. I am not a fan of drinking plain milk...this sounds like a perfect solution.

  3. I'm not a milk drinker either, but believe me, you will find more calcium in yogurts or cheese than in milk. Milk is important only if you don't take calcium from other aliments.
    Anyway, your smoothie looks delicious :)

  4. What a delicious combo Nammi! I've been making similar ones with blueberries and banana.

  5. Strawberry is the most delegate fruit.. I love this smoothy but I never add milk in my smoothies yet ... I will try this way
