I love a good milkshake!
Even better than that, I love a healthy milkshake that I can make myself, and, with strawberries coming back into season, what better time than now for this…
I truly believe that the proportions of ingredients are extremely important when it comes to smoothies. Too many times I’ve tried to ‘wing it’ and throw a bunch of stuff into a blender, only to have it come out tasting far less than sub-par. This is not one of those recipes.
- 1 c. milk almond or coconut both work very well (use full-fat coconut milk for a decandent treat!)
- 10 oz. about 1 1/2 c. frozen strawberries
- 2 T. maple syrup or honey
- dash sea salt
- Blend everything until smooth and creamy!

This is meant to be a dessert drink rather than a smoothie, but feel free to use more stevia and less maple syrup, if desired. Or, if you’re looking to indulge, try some full-fat coconut milk! 🙂 Those rich fats do a body good!…
…and, if you’re like me, and are searching for a way to make your own coconut milk to avoid the BPAs in cans or the guar gum that seems to be added to every…single…coconut milk out there…check out this video…
Rich, creamy, and packed full of vitamin C from the strawberries, this makes a delicious and healthy indulgence, which is what I’m all about!
What is your favorite healthy indulgence?
