- 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (or a dairy-free alternative for a vegan version)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for added sweetness)
- Ice cubes (optional)
- Shredded coconut and fresh strawberries for garnish (optional)
Prepare Your Ingredients: If using fresh strawberries, wash them and remove the stems. If using frozen strawberries, there's no need to thaw them. Peel the ripe banana.
Blend the Fruits: In a blender, combine the strawberries, banana, and coconut milk. The banana will add creaminess to your smoothie, so don't skip it.
Add Greek Yogurt: Pour in the Greek yogurt, which adds a delicious creaminess and a hint of tang to your smoothie. If you prefer a dairy-free option, you can use coconut yogurt or another non-dairy yogurt of your choice.
Sweeten to Taste: To enhance the sweetness of your smoothie, you can add a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup. Adjust the sweetness to your liking, as the sweetness of the fruits can vary.
Ice It Up: If you love your smoothie icy-cold, toss in a handful of ice cubes before blending.
Blend Until Smooth: Blend all the ingredients until your smoothie is silky-smooth and well combined. Make sure there are no strawberry chunks left.
Check the Consistency: If your smoothie is too thick, add a bit more coconut milk. If it's too thin, add extra banana or yogurt to reach your desired consistency.
Taste and Adjust: Give your smoothie a taste test. Add more sweetener or fruit to achieve the perfect flavour balance.
Serve: Pour your Creamy Strawberry Coconut Smoothie into your coconut bowls and garnish it with a sprinkle of shredded coconut or a few fresh strawberry slices for an extra tropical touch.
This Creamy Strawberry Coconut Smoothie is a delectable blend of flavours and textures that will transport you to a sunny paradise with each sip. It's not only a delicious treat but also a nutritious way to energize your day.
