Made from Scratch: Strawberry Creamsicle Smoothie

By March 6, 2018 Local Food, Recipe

Strawberry Creamsicle Smoothie

Smoothies are a quick and nutritious way to enjoy a balanced breakfast in one convenient  cup. However, smoothies too often resemble milkshakes instead of the nutritious power drink they could be. When done right, smoothies pack a nutritional punch that includes protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Step-By-Step Smoothie:

  1. Choose fruit – frozen berries, kiwi, orange
  2. Choose a base – kefir, juice, coconut water, milk/mylk, kombucha, coffee
  3. Thicken it up – yogurt, ice cubes, banana, avocado, nut butter, chia seeds
  4. Pack the power – add greens (spinach, kale, powdered blend), protein powder, bee pollen, probiotic, superfood powder (maca, acai, reishi)
  5. Add more flavor – honey, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon

Strawberry Creamsicle Smoothie:

  1. 1/2 cup mix of Waterwheel Garden frozen blueberries, strawberries, & raspberries*
  2. 1/4 cup Treasured Sunrise Acre’s raw cream*
  3. 1/2 cup Picabo Desert Farm vanilla bean yogurt*
  4. Handful of Kraay’s Market & Garden spinach* & chia seeds
  5. Dash of cinnamon & bee pollen*

Layer ingredients in your blender with liquid on both the bottom and the top for a smooth blend. Serve in glass mason jar with a reusable straw. Enjoy!
