I don’t drink a lot of smoothies in the winter. When I make one, it is usually for breakfast and, in the morning, the cold weather makes me crave oatmeal more than a cold drink.
I’ve been feeling dehydrated since the winter began and I ended up craving a delicious smoothie as an afternoon snack. I might end up braving the cold often for this one.
- 3/4 cup chilled full fat coconut milk
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 tsp maple syrup
- 10 fresh mint leaves
- 1 cup frozen strawberries (I used sliced – with whole strawberries, use 1 heaping cup)
Directions: Put all ingredients (in order) in the blender and process until smooth.
Makes 1 serving
The key ingredient in this smoothie is actually the maple syrup! At first, I made it without the syrup and it wasn’t really good. Adding the maple syrup brought it from not good to delicious – it made all the flavors burst!
It also had the perfect thickness thanks to the chilled coconut milk (really thick).
Now I have to study for my exam tomorrow! Only two days left – can’t wait!
