Strawberry Smoothie

It has been a long time since I posted something here. Not that I didn't want to, but was left with no choice. I got few warts removed from my fingers on my right hand. All I was left with was my little finger without bandages. Like how we say in malayalam Vellukan thechathe pande ayi - I now see that saying coming true. I shouldn't have messed with the painless/harmless warts, else it would have been so easy to type out this post using both hands. I did not think that through !

                            

Last week when I got so hungry and figured out that it is gonna take me a lot of time to serve and have food with my left hand, I chose to have this strawberry smoothie to calm down my hunger a little before I go for lunch. Surprisingly, these were so filling and refreshing that I was left with no room for lunch.





I thought I could share it with you all to try it and enjoy this perfect smoothie since summer is around and you would love it.






Ingredients





  1. 1 1/2 cup of pitted, diced and frozen strawberries
  2. 3/4 cup of cold yogurt
  3. 2 tbsp of strawberry jam
  4. 1 cup of cold milk
  5. 2-3 cubes of ice 




Method

  • In a blender, add the yogurt, jam and milk.
  • Drop in the strawberries and ice cubes.
  • Puree untill its smooth.
  • Serve it chilled.


Tips

  1. You could use honey to sweeten up the smoothie as its a healthier option. I used strawberry jam because it helps enhance the taste of strawberry as well as the colour of the smoothie. 
  2. Dropping in the liquid ingredients first, followed by the strawberries would help the blender to puree it faster without any blocks.
  3. Do not use over fermented yogurt else your smoothie might taste tangy.
  4. It is always good to have the smoothies fresh. So try having it as soon as you make it rather than storing it in the refrigerator for later.





Beat the heat this summer, with a cold glass of smoothie :). And do not forget to come back and share if you loved it.
