Can You Use Half and Half in Smoothies?
Yes! This strawberries and cream smoothie uses half and half for a super thick and creamy texture. That’s part of what makes it feel like a dessert smoothie! Of course, you can always substitute the portion of half and half with additional nut milk or cow’s milk.
What Kind Of Strawberries Should I Use?
You can use fresh or frozen strawberries, but our preference is frozen because it yields a thicker milkshake-like texture. Frozen strawberries are often cheaper and more available year-round! Plus frozen fruit has just as many nutrients as fresh, so it’s really a no-brainer. Of course, if you have a bunch of fresh strawberries to use up, it will still be delicious (just maybe not quite as thick).
How Do I Make A Strawberries and Cream Smoothie?
This recipe could not be easier to make. Like most smoothies, you’ll just dump your ingredients into a blender and let it do the work for you. This recipe serves one person so you’ll want to increase the amount if you’re serving two or more people.
What Can I Add To This Strawberries and Cream Smoothie?
A favorite of ours is to also add banana for a winning strawberry-banana combination. You could also try additional berries like blueberries or blackberries for an even fruitier taste. Feeling extra indulgent? Add some cocoa powder in the blender or a drizzle of chocolate syrup on top when serving.
Smoothies are also a great place to add protein powder, collagen or any other superfood ingredients you like.
