Strawberry Smoothie

Strawberry Smoothie

Try this cold, thick smoothie with whole-grain cereal or muffins for a delicious and satisfying breakfast. Buy frozen strawberries or freeze fresh ones. To freeze bananas, peel and break into pieces, pack loosely in an airtight container, and freeze.


Makes 2 1-cup servings

1 cup frozen strawberries
1 medium frozen banana, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 - 1 cup vanilla rice milk


Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend at high speed until smooth. You will have to stop the blender occasionally and move the unblended fruit to the center with a spatula to get your smoothie smooth.
