Pro Tips by Neha
Make sure to freeze the fruits a few hours before making the smoothie.
Using frozen fruits makes the smoothie creamier and you don’t need ice to chill it.
Use a good blender to make the smoothie. We don’t want chunks of fruits coming in your mouth.
You can freeze strawberries when they are in season like I do and then keep using it throughout the year.
You can do the same with blueberries and other fruits too.
To make this recipe vegan, use any vegan milk and yogurt instead of regular milk and yogurt.
If as a vegan you do not eat honey as well, you can replace it with agave nectar, molasses, maple syrup, etc.
You can add more ingredients and make a new variation every time.
Some of the options are spinach, orange juice, mixed berries, pineapple, banana, cherry, avocado, and mango.
You can replace the honey or sugar with stevia for a low-calorie drink.
Add protein powder of your choice to this smoothie.
How to freeze Strawberries and Blueberries for smoothie?
Although Strawberries and blueberries are now available throughout the year, their quality is the best in summers.
I make sure to freeze a whole lot of strawberries and blueberries when they are in season.
To freeze these berries, wash the berries and drain well. Spread on a kitchen towel for a few hours to get rid of any water on the surface.
Put the berries on a baking tray in a single layer and freeze for 6-8 hours.
Scoop them in a freezer-safe bag once they are frozen and store for 8-10 months.
Keep using whenever you need them.
You can also chop the strawberries before freezing. Hull them and cut into small pieces and freeze on a baking tray.
Can you refrigerate this Smoothie?
Refrigerating fresh fruit smoothies is not recommended, but if you end up making a bigger batch than required, you can refrigerate the smoothie in an airtight container for one more day.
How to make it with water?
You can skip adding milk and yogurt in the smoothie and add water instead.
Coconut water also works great in this recipe.
By adding water or coconut water in place of milk and yogurt, the smoothie will be vegan too.
How to make it without Milk?
Add water or coconut water in place of milk to make this smoothie without milk.
You can also add almond milk or any other vegan milk if you are looking for a vegan smoothie.
