Epic Strawberry Raspberry Smoothie Recipe
Easy and delicious is a great combo! Begin following instructions, time now:
Strawberry Raspberry Smoothie Ingredients
1 & 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen raspberries
1/2 cup of milk
9 ounces of vanilla ice cream (3 scoops with a standard 3 oz scoop)
3 teaspoons of honey
9 ounces of yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 whole strawberries for garnishment
Epic Strawberry Raspberry Smoothie Recipe Directions
Put the strawberries (washed and hulled) and raspberries in a blender or food processor and chop them until they are your desired consistency. Blend longer for smoother texture and shorter for a more chunky smoothie experience. When the fruit is how you like it, add the vanilla extract, yogurt, ice cream, honey, and milk. Blend it all up for 20 to 30 seconds and then pour into serving glasses. Garnish each glass with a whole strawberry (recipe should make 3 servings).
Additional Notes on this Strawberry Raspberry Smoothie
This recipe has a great combination of flavors and is simple to make. It only takes minutes. Remember, just like most of the other Strawberry Recipes, it can be easily modified. For varied tastes, different flavors of yogurt can be substituted. For thicker smoothies, the milk can be frozen into cubes prior to blending. Adding a banana, blueberries, blackberries, or other fruit can be of benefit also (you might want to decrease the sugar added if you use a banana, however). Experiment and find what works well for you and your unique taste sensibilities! For those conscious about the amount of refined table sugar they consume, this is a great recipe. Natural honey is used, and there is no extra table sugar included (although the ice cream and yogurt will likely contain some). For those conscious about the amount of refined table sugar they consume, feel free to try organic evaporated cane juice crystals, turbinado, sucanat, honey crystals, brown sugar, or even stevia to give unique and varied accents to this quick strawberry recipe.
