Quick Strawberry Smoothies

10 Jun

I’ve read a lot of smoothie recipes. The issue with most of them is that they’re too complicated. When I’ve just made a full dinner after a long day of entertaining kids, I want a simple recipe that will make them feel like they’re getting something special. Additionally, the recipes always claimed to serve four. Four what? Mice?

After many tries, the kids and I have finally found a concoction with which we are happy. It’s fast and it makes a full eight ounces for four people. Yep, a full glass.

32 oz plain yogurt

1/4 gallon plain ice cream

1/2 lb frozen strawberries

2 cups milk

Blend it all together well. Use a fresh strawberry for a garnish. It’s a little chunky but really yummy on a hot day.

    We just had an AMAZING variation of this recipe. We used half the amount of frozen strawberries and we used strawberry yogurt. We used chocolate ice cream and no milk. We added one tablespoon each of Hershey’s Baking Chocolate (the powdered stuff) and sugar. Wow. Just wow. If you have a smoothie variation post it here – we all want to try different things to find what works for our unique families!
