Good old-fashioned strawberry milkshake

After a long day at work, shooting an advertisement for a fruit-flavored yoghurt brand, I brought home a huge load of left over fruits, including a rather big amount of strawberries. While taking a look at this excessive batch of strawberries, my mind immediately started a screening of all the possible recipes I have stored inside it. The result: 1 ITEM FOUND. Strawberry Smoothie!

It was then thought that who could deserve a better drink than this one after a tiring day of running around the set and standing in the kitchen for hours!

A Strawberry Smoothie can be made from strawberries only. I’d like to add to it a cup of skimmed milk and a banana. If the strawberries are not sweet enough on their own, I usually add a dash of honey. My daughter Kaia prefers it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream instead of the milk with no banana.
