SF Strawberry SmoothieSummer is just around the corner. I can smell dark soil, mud puddles, and gentle summer rains hovering in the air. I saw tiny buds on my lilac bush yesterday (hurray!) and when I look around the yard I find myself actually looking forward to raking and cleaning up the yard.

What better way to welcome summer then with a taste of strawberries?

This is one of our favorite snacks when we want something cold and sweet, without taking the time to make ice-cream. We use the easiest yogurt on planet earth to make it thick and creamy and add a splash of almond extract for a unique twist. Add fresh or frozen strawberries and some stevia to make it sugar-free and healthy. (And because we’re shedding those concealing sweaters!)

Sugar-Free Strawberry Smoothie (gluten-free, candida-diet)
2 c. strawberries (fresh or frozen)
2 c. homemade yogurt (you can also use coconut or almond milk or kefir)
1 t. almond extract (vanilla works too)
stevia, to taste
15-20 ice cubes

Directions:
1. Place the ice cubes and strawberries in a blender or food processor. (It blends easier if they are at the bottom and closer to the blades).

2. Then add yogurt, almond extract, and stevia.

3. Blend until smooth.

4. Pour into individual glasses and top with a berry to enjoy!

This is a quick and easy treat that’s cold, yummy, and healthy too!

      I have got to try that yogurt sometime. I LOVE LOVE LOVE yogurt. Preferably red Raspberry yogurt. Hyvee brand. LOL They just recently added something to it though that I cant quite put my finger on. I wonder if it was extra thickeners. It suddenly changed in texture. 🙁 We had a drinkable yogurt in Peru that I loved. Maybe I should try some of this sometime and see if I can take the taste difference.

      Cristy :),

      This is hands down my favorite yogurt. Not as thick as store-bought, but after you've tried it a few times you don't even notice anymore. I LOVE it.

      Thanks for stopping by! It was fun chatting with you today!

      I love the yogurt and strawberry combination, and that touch of almond extract is brilliant!

      We have strawberry smoothies in summer (neighbour gives us 1-2kg a day during peak season) and sometimes add a banana or two to the mix
      But I have to say we dont use any sweeteners at all.
      Sometimes I'll freeze the strawberries and just add a splash of milk into the blender with them 🙂

      I’m so so so so happy that I came across your website! I’ve been on the Candida diet for about 3 weeks now and am having a very hard time dealing with strong sugar cravings, and finding to-the-point, reliable information about acceptable anti-candida foods. Your site is informative and best of all, you understand that candida dieters need actually tasty deserts (like this smoothy!) to get them through the tough diet! Thanks for your help, keep up the god work 🙂
