Serves: 1 smoothie
Ingredients
  • 1 cup coconut milk, unsweetened from a carton
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey (or sub maple syrup for vegan)
toppings (optional):
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in blender*. Blend on high until smooth and creamy, scraping the edges halfway through to ensure evenness.
  2. Scrape into a bowl using a rubber spatula, sprinkle with toppings if desired and serve immediately.
Notes
*If you plan on making smoothies frequently, I definitely suggest investing in a good blender. (I went through 3 cheep blenders over the course of one semester in college. no joke). I love my Vitamix - probably one of the best Christmas gifts I’ve ever received. It literally holds up anything. You can buy them certified refurbished which helps cut the cost and still gives you a great product.
