Ingredients for Strawberry Almond Milk Smoothie

How to Make Strawberry Almond Milk

  1. Rinse berries and allow them to soften.
  2. Add milk and berries to the blender.
  3. Pulse in 30-second increments until desired consistency
  4. Optionally, add honey, chia seeds, nutritional yeast flakes or cocoa powder.

While frozen berries leave you with an even colder beverage, you can easily use fresh berries if available, ripe and on hand.  Rinse your berries well, and if using frozen let them stand for a few minutes to soften slightly.  We have a Ninja and don't have to let them soften at all.  The softer they are, the smoother and creamier your milk will be.  Frozen berries, unthawed, turn into more of an almond milk smoothie vs plain strawberry milk.

How to Pick the Best Strawberries

Look for local berries that are vine-ripened if possible.  Late Spring and early Summer are usually the best times to locate local berry farms you can pick fresh strawberries for your personal use.  Check into the “you pick” days for discounts and bring the kids along to help you grab the most berries.  Not only can you clean and use immediately, but strawberries also preserve wonderfully when frozen, or made into pies, jams, and jellies.

How to Easily Blend Your Smoothie

Add your almond milk and strawberries to a blender and pulse in 30-second increments until smooth.  If you prefer a chunkier drink, you can lightly pulse leaving bits of berry in the drink.  We usually use unsweetened almond milk for this and add a bit of raw honey if it isn't sweet enough after blended.  The fresh strawberries should offer plenty of sweetness.

If you want, you can also add in some chia seeds, nutritional yeast flakes, or even a bit of organic cocoa powder for a change.
