Ingredients

  • A handful of ice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (we recommend oat or almond)
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup other frozen berries (optional)
  • 120ml non-fat Greek yogurt (optional)

Nothing satisfies us on a hot sunny day quite like slurping an icy drink — and smoothies are one of the best ways to go if you're looking for something filling, nourishing, sweet and cool to help you last through summer.

Simply keeping a stash of frozen fruits will keep you equipped with plenty of smoothie ideas. They are so easy to think of, take seconds to make, plus you can bring them with you if you have a good blender gun handy!

This easy strawberry smoothie recipe contains no more than 5 ingredients, combining frozen berries, a bit of ice, a dollop of yogurt and a generous pour of your milk of choice. Recipe below!

Method

  1. Pour your non-dairy milk into a high powered blender gun, followed by ice. Then, add the rest of your smoothie ingredients: Frozen fruits, yogurt, and optional add-ons such as cinnamon or honey.

  2. Blend until smooth. Pour into a glass, a tumbler, or — if you're using the Cuisinart Cordless Blender Gun — cover the vessel and pack it straight away to-go.



Icy Easy Strawberry Smoothie

FAQs

How do I make my smoothie thinner/thicker?

For thinner consistency, add more liquids such as water / coconut water. 

You can also add milk, but note this will make the smoothie more filling. 

For thicker consistency, you can add more ice or yogurt.

Can I store smoothies for later?

Yes you can! Simply put it in the refrigerator and use an airtight container or bottle to store your smoothie.

What fruits can I use for a smoothie?

The best thing about smoothies is they are so versatile to use with any type of fruits you'd like – frozen or fresh. Berries such as raspberries or blueberries are the obvious choice. Mango, banana, pineapple are also worth a try if you're looking for a more tropical-themed beverage.

(Note that banana smoothies are best consumed straight away, because storing them for too long can lead to browning).

Some also like to add greens to their smoothies such as spinach or kale for that nutrition boost. You can also add a dollop of nut butter to your mixture for a variety of taste.
