The best thing about this recipe is the simplicity and the need for just one type of fruit. Our strawberry smoothie recipe is a healthy alternative to something like a McDonald's strawberry shake. Our version doesn't have added sugar and is balanced with both natural sugar (fructose) and added protein.

Ingredients: 
2 cups soy milk (or dairy milk)
full scoop of vanilla protein powder (1/8 cup)
8 large strawberries (preferably frozen)
4 cubes of ice
Instructions: 
  1. Add all ingredients to blender in order of the listed ingredients.
  2. Blend until perfect consistency is achieved.
  3. As an alternative to vanilla protein powder you may substitute chocolate or strawberry flavors as well. All combinations will taste quite pleasing.
  4. Optionally you can blend all the ingredients until a uniform consistency is achieved and then add in two small strawberries and let it blend for a few seconds. This will leave a few delicious chunks in there which makes it more fun to eat.
Tips:
