Sweet Strawberry Smoothie

When summer comes around, a smoothie is a great breakfast idea to get you going in the morning. Simple but scrumptious, this strawberry smoothie is a winner!

This recipe uses a hand blender as I hate washing up the big food processor but alternatively, you can use a food processor or a normal blender.

Ingredients (makes 2 glasses)

400g/14oz strawberries (however you could add other fruits e.g. bananas)

2-3 tbsp icing sugar, to taste

200g/7oz Greek yoghurt

4 tbsp single cream

Method

1. Wash your strawberries (this picture was probably unnecessary but hey ho!).

2. Hull your strawberries and add them to a bowl alongside your icing sugar. Blend until they become a smooth purée.

3. Add the yoghurt and the cream and blend it again until it becomes frothy. Try the mixture to make sure it is sweet enough; if not, add more icing sugar.

4. Pour into glasses and voilà!

I find this smoothie to be so refreshing and filling on a summer morning (or any time of the day for that matter!) so please let me know if you try this recipe yourself or a recipe you are loving at the moment, as I would love to hear about it!
