Strawberry Smoothie

Once, a few months ago, I used to be a normal girl.

A normal girl with a mild obsession with all things strawberry.

Then, one day, an evil force let me spot and learn a way how the strawberry smoothie can be prepared at home.

SINCE THEN, my life has never been the same.

SINCE THEN, a single day wouldn’t pass in my house without a rumbling sound of the blender and the strawberries flying left and right (mostly right, I guess).

SINCE THEN, my life has become one huge addiction.

The Strawberry Smoothie – my blessing and my curse.

To top it all, just when I thought the things couldn’t get any more serious, my boyfriend became a victim too.

It was yesterday when he asked me: “What do you think – how much of this is a person allowed to drink?”

I am not sure if I should show you this, but here’s the way to the most gorgeous drink of them all:

These are the ingriedents.

I usually use canned strawberries since I need to eliminate the seasonality factor.

BUT, you can definitely use fresh strawberries as well – in that case use about 1 pound (500 grams) of those and raise the amount of sugar to taste.

Welcome to my blender.

Beware of the flying objects, please!

1. Anyway, start by pouring the strawberries into the blender.

2. Add the yogurt, sugar and lemon juice.

3. Then try to find as much ice as possible.

The picture above is trying to point out that different shapes and sizes are perfectly all right.

4. Pulse a couple of times and that’s it.

Really, really easy.

I guess that’s another aspect which makes this whole thing so addictive.

Then, IMMEDIATELY, fill your glass, …

… drink it up and swoon for awhile.

Then wake up and have another glass.

And so on and so on…

Enjoy, dear friends.

(This recipe makes about 5 cups of a luscious beverage.)

    LOL, I know the feeling. I bought a blender my first month in Bangkok and I was like a girl obsessed. Plus, here in Thailand, you can buy a bag of fresh cut pineapple, watermelon, strawberries, melon, guava etc. for 25 cents – so I must have made 100 smoothies, LOL.

    Strawberries have never been my favorite fruit. Usually when I want a smoothie, I’ll make a Banana Smoothie but these photos are really making me want to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
