Based on a recipe from Doctors Roizen’s and Oz’s book, You the Owner’s Manual. This benefits your body’s hormones because, “Potassium and antioxidants in strawberries have been shown to help regulate blood pressure, which plays a key role in many hormonal functions.”
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
- 1⁄2 cup fat-free soymilk or 1⁄2 cup light soymilk or 1⁄2 cup skim milk
- 1 pinch vanilla flavoring
- 1⁄2 cup strawberry sorbet
- Blend strawberries and milk together in blender until fairly smooth.
- Add sorbet; blend until smooth and thick.
- Decrease simple carbohydrate load by adding a scoop of soy protein powder with one tablespoon of flaxseed oil; or, add 1 cup of canned pineapple chunks (stored in water) or 1 cup frozen mango chunks as a substitute for the sorbet.
Made half this recipe today for lunch. Had to use frozen strawberries this time of year, but will be making again in June when I can get oodles of fresh berries. Thanks for sharing mersaydees. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.
WOW! Two of your smoothies in 2 days, but what can I say but that "I love smoothies, most definitely!" I used the frozen strawberries that I always have on hand & added a scoop of protein powder! I did have to add a bit more milk so I'd have enough liquid for the frozen berries, but that didn't detract from the drink's great taste! Wonderful!
