I now use my immersion blender to make all of my smoothies…it has sort of changed my life. It is so much easier to get out and to clean than my big blender. Plus, it’s the perfect size for one smoothie. I just tossed this together last weekend to use up leftover coconut milk from dinner the night before (I used it to make cashew coconut rice…yum!) and I always have bananas and strawberries in my freezer. I add flax seed and protein powder to my smoothies these days to make them extra filling.
you will need:
¾ cup coconut milk
1 banana, frozen
large handful strawberries, frozen or fresh
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
2 tablespoons protein powder (I use unflavored rice)
water for thinning
Toss all ingredients together and blend until smooth. Add water, a little bit at a time, to adjust to your desired consistency. Will keep in the fridge for a day or so if you have leftovers!
