I’m going crazy for strawberries lately and after coming across these adorable retro-style milk bottles, I was inspired to create this Strawberries & Cream smoothie which I was half-tempted to call a Strawberry Milkshake Smoothie because it tastes just like a strawberry milkshake, especially when it’s served in these bottles!
For some reason, drinks are always more delicious when drank from a cute bottle and pink straw…
As my regular readers will already know, all my smoothies are banana-free due to allergies. So if you too suffer from an intolerance to bananas or simply don’t like them, then all my smoothies are safe to try!
This smoothie is made with dairy-free yoghurt which gives it a thick, creaminess. If you’re wanting to keep this smoothie low-fat, I suggest using soy yoghurt but other yoghurts will taste wonderful too, I’m sure.
Kids will absolutely love this smoothie as a healthy alternative to strawberry milkshake and it makes a pretty healthy breakfast option too!
This smoothie is:
- Dairy-free and vegan
- Gluten-free and grain-free
- Low-fat and low -calorie
- Sweet and delicious!
- 1 cup strawberries, chopped
- 125 g / 1/2 cup dairy-free yoghurt, I used soy to keep it low fat
- 240 ml / 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, or soy milk for nut-free alternative
- 2 dates, pitted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 10 ice cubes*
- Simply blend all the ingredients together in a high-powered blender and pour into 2 glasses or bottles.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
*If you're blender can't process ice, use frozen strawberries instead and add extra almond milk.
