4-Ingredient Strawberry Smoothie

Strawberry-Smoothie-8

I love healthy smoothies. Especially when they’re quick and easy. This 4-Ingredient Strawberry Smoothie is so simple to make. And it’s berry good I might add.

That reminds me of the Strawberry Shortcake books I used to read to my daughter when she was little. The word berry was used in the place of very and it was used A LOT. It was berry, berry cute.

Back to the recipe. You’ve gotta try this 4-Ingredient Strawberry Smoothie. I’m berry sure you will like it because it’s berry, berry good! (Ok, I’m done now. Maybe.)

Strawberry-Smoothie-1

Strawberries, greek yogurt, walnuts and agave. That’s it! Get your fruit, protein and healthy fat all in one drink.

I like to add the agave to make it a little bit sweeter. Have you ever tried agave nectar? You can find it on the grocery aisle next to the sugars. I think it’s like a cross between maple syrup and honey. It has a delicate, slightly nutty flavor and is my favorite natural sweetener.

Strawberry-Smoothie-9

This 4-Ingredient Strawberry Smoothie makes a great breakfast or after workout snack. And it’s berry, berry tasty. Oops, I did it again.

Smoothie-Ingredients

Here are your 4 ingredients. I like to use vanilla Greek yogurt but you could use plain if you wanted to cut back on the sugar. Frozen strawberries are best to make the smoothie a nice thick consistency.

Smoothie-in-blender

Just dump your ingredients in the blender and let her rip. I like to blend it on low for 15-20 seconds or until the big pieces are broken up. Then turn it up to high and blend until smooth. It’s ready to serve.

This recipe makes one serving.

Strawberry-Smoothie-10

This is a great smoothie for children. The flavor is berry kid friendly and it packs a lot of protein, plus some fiber. It’s berry, berry yummy! The end. 😉
