Strawberry Smoothie Without Yogurt
I know how it feels to have ingredients in a recipe, which we aren't so fond of consuming.

  • Sweetener (Optional)
  • Strawberries (12 frozen ones)

It's simple. Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend till it's smooth. It can happen that your strawberries can be too sweet, which clearly wouldn't need any sweetener, but if the fruits that are used have a slight tangy effect, add sweeteners like sugar, a non-calorie sweetener or honey and sweeten the entire smoothie. Once everything has blended well, serve in a tall glass and enjoy!
