Strawberry Vanilla Yoghurt Smoothie Recipe

Strawberry Vanilla Yoghurt Smoothie

Very, very delicious – just the right amount of sweet to be a treat, but plenty of nutrition for a great snack

  • 1/2 cup milk (Soy, Almond, Coconut, Dairy….)
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1 handful strawberries (fresh or frozen, greens removed)
  • 1 pear (Ripe, peeled & cored)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla (or 1/2 teasp extract or essence)
  • 1/2 Avocado (Optional)
  • 6 ice cubes (Optional)
  1. Add all ingredients to you blender, starting with the liquids. Blend for 30-60 seconds. Enjoy!
* You can use any milk in this recipe. My favourite is Bonsoy soy milk, it’s creamy, sweet and full of goodness. Not all shops stock Bonsoy – if you can’t find it you can use any other, or try my second favourite; the PureHarvest range. They can be found in the supermarket, or at Aussie Health Products.
* You can use natural greek yoghurt (such as Jalna), or vanilla yoghurt if you like a sweeter smoothie.
* You can use any berries, fresh or frozen. I often have this smoothie with frozen mixed berries, and sometimes frozen raspberries alone – both are delicious. Any fruit can be used really – throw any in that need using!
* Try and use real vanilla in your smoothies – the essence will give you the flavour, but not the benefit. I have a little bottle of vanilla concentrated extract (from Woolies), and you only need to use half as much as the essence. Aussie Health Products has organic vanilla beans at a good price – you only need a tiny bit for a wonderful smoothie.
* The avocado is optional. I like to add it for extra thickness and nutrition.
* The ice cubes are optional. I love icy cold smoothies, and my Froothie Optimum blender handles them without fuss, but they can be left out no worries.
