Partially because everyone and their momma are posting smoothies and healthy recipes right now since it’s January, and partially because I have GOT to start eating healthier. I am such a picky eater and it is beyond ridiculous. People are usually surprised by this and they say, “But you love to cook!” And I’m like, “NO, I really love cake!”
My problem is that I hate the texture of most fruits and vegetables. I do like the flavor of most fruits though. The only vegetables I really like are the “starchy” ones, like potatoes and corn and mac ‘n’ cheese.
Smoothies are a great way for picky eaters like myself to get in their daily dose of healthy stuff. My favorite smoothie of all time is frozen banana, peanut butter, and a little cocoa powder. The thicker and more like ice cream, the better! Strawberries are probably my second favorite thing to put in smoothies (even though I still really hate the seeds). I came across a strawberry cheesecake flavored yogurt at the grocery store when I was buying my weekly amount of vanilla (I know it’s boring!), and knew I had to make a smoothie with it.
It’s basically yogurt and frozen strawberries and almond milk. Pretty simple! I’m not even sure you can call that a recipe, but here it is! 🙂
- One strawberry cheesecake Yoplait 100 calorie Greek yogurt
- 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries, frozen
- ¼ cup non-sweetened almond milk
- Combine all ingredients in a blender. Add the strawberries first, then the milk and yogurt. (I did this the other way around the first time and all the strawberries got stuck together around the blade.) Blend until completely incorporated and smooth. Garnish with a strawberry!
