Strawberry Smoothie

I’m a Southern gal and that means I politely decline ice in my smoothies, strawberry or otherwise.

Ice is reserved for a Coconut Slush, a rainbow snow cone or rocks in my whiskey.

Ice in a smoothie?

Oh, mah dear, no thank you!

Yes, I know if you’re not drinking enough water, you’re thinking this is a perfect way to get more.

Um, DRINK MORE WATER!

I think water in smoothies dilutes the taste of, well, all the deliciousness you took the time to put in your smoothie.

If you’re thinking Hey, OMT! there’s NO WAY I can make a delicious strawberry smoothie without ice, you’d be wrong.

Come on.

Let me show you how to make an incredibly healthy (spiked or not – your choice) strawberry smoothie without using nary a cube of ice.

Oh, Mrs Tucker’s No Fail, Ice-Free, Pick-any-Fruit Smoothie

Serves One

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup milk (your choice of variety, but I find a full fat milk makes the best tasting smoothie)

Frozen fruit, dealer’s choice.

1 tbsp sugar, optional

DIRECTIONS:

Pour milk into blender.

Throw in sugar and about 1/2 cup of frozen fruit to start.

As the blender breaks up the fruit, keep adding more in small amounts until your smoothie reaches your desired consistency.

Pour in a glass.

Enjoy!

NOTES:

~ I rarely find it necessary to add the sugar. Strawberries be sweet, yo!

~ You can also add a bit of homemade vanilla to make this smoothie POP!

~ This recipe works for any frozen fruit or a combo of fruits.

~ If you call this smoothie a “shake” – the kiddies will slurp it down like no one’s biznezz. #parentingwin

While Garry prefers a mix of frozen blueberries, cherries and pineapple, I am a one-fruit per smoothie enthusiast.

Garry prefers a consistency that is spoon-worthy, while I prefer mine to travel through a straw with just a hint of effort.

Each smoothie is different and delicious.  Not to mention packed with nutrition and antioxidants.

Ahem, the kiddies I mentioned above? They will love them and never have to know they are good for them.

You can also blend a thick consistency, then fill Popsicle molds for a fun, frozen treat.

One caveat: If Mommy has had a hard day and happens to slip enough booze to put her out for the night a teeny splash of vanilla rum into a batch to freeze, make sure they are labeled and that the children (most likely the reason mommy spiked her batch that she has no plans on sharing with daddy), can’t get their adorable tiny fingers on them.

Social services frowns upon tipsy children…from what I hear.

I know you are wondering where I got the Fatty McGee straw.

Ain’t she marvelous?

Half of the enjoyment of a delicious smoothie is the straw you use to drank it.

I’ve linked a couple of options below.



 

I do love a cold Strawberry Smoothie with a fat red straw!

  1. Oh Mrs. Tucker that does look delicious! Especially if I were to accidentally slip and poor a splash (or 2) of gin in there…. Yum!

  3. I love things like this…and so healthy.

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      Other than the taste, that it’s good for you is the best thing about it. Wait. I take that back. The fat red straw is also a lot of fun.

  4. Mmmmm! I love smoothies and your smoothie looks amazing! So easy too : )

  5. Can’t wait to make this! It looks so refreshing. 🙂
    Blessings,
    Kim

    Oh yeah!! I’m thinking a little flavored vodka in my smoothie at the end of a trying day would really hit the spot. I am pinning this so my grand-daughter can add it to her recipe collection for kids. She is a teacher and always looking for healthy treats. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Looks like a milkshake so I know its good 😉 Thanks for linking!

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      It tastes like a milkshake! I’m not a fan of the flavored soy milks, or almond milk, but if you were I bet you could use those as well.

  8. Thanks for the smoothie recipe. It’s about the way I make mine also. Best wishes, Linda

  9. Thanks for linking up at The Project Stash! I’ll be featuring this recipe tomorrow in a special strawberry post!

  10. Alice @ Mums Make Lists says:

    Am so with you on the no ice!

    I’ve featured this in my Breakfast Like a King post … Alice @ Mums Make Lists x

  11. This looks yummy. I’ll have to try it with almond milk!

  12. Ooh, we’ll definitely be using this recipe to make popsicles! I love that it’s easy and I always have milk and fruit in the house.

  13. Oh my Mrs. Tucker, I think you are my kind of gal! Thanks for sharing!!

  14. I agree with the ice thing, the only way for smoothie is using frozen fruit.

  15. Yum Yum. Can’t be beat, thanks for sharing on The Yuck Stops Here! HUGS

  16. It’s strawberry season, I will go buy some tomorrow and try this. It would be wonderful for anyone, but being diabetic, makes it even better. It sounds wonderfully delish, even unspiked!

  17. Cindy Gill says:

    Every morning I make a smoothie before I go to work, which consist of vanilla protein powder, chocolate almond milk, and a frozen banana. No ice nor sugar needed! Nice and thick and yummy and healthy!

  18. A great fruit smoothie recipe! #readerstiptuesday
