Susan Belsinger’s Strawberry Soy Milk Smoothie
Susan Belsinger, a culinary herbalist and talented recipe developer, says you can use any berries in a smoothie, but her favorite is strawberry. Susan’s kids like this smoothie with ripe banana added; blueberries are also tasty. Mango and banana together gives a tropical twist. Another great combo is raspberries with peaches. Besides being quick and easy, the best thing about this recipe is that it tastes good and it is good for you! Sometimes she adds a handful of dry oatmeal—it makes it thicker and more filling, adds protein, and keeps her going longer.
About 1 to 1 1/2 cups fruit, cut into chunks
About 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
1 cup cold soymilk
3 to 5 ice cubes
2 drops pure vanilla extract
Put the fruit in the blender. Drizzle the syrup or honey over it. Add the ice cubes. Pour the soymilk over all and add the vanilla. Blend until pureed and frothy. Serve immediately in a tall glass with a straw.
