Strawberry Smoothie

Strawberries are packed with vitamin C and they contain fibre and antioxidants as well. Sweet, organic strawberries, freshly picked from a field (think Danish strawberries) are my favourite fruit. One time when I was riding my horses in Iceland, in the middle of nowhere I stumbled upon wild strawberries that tasted absolutely amazing. It had been a particularly warm summer (for Iceland at least) with plenty of sunshine. I remember riding along a path and I saw red berries underneath the wild plants that looked amazingly similar to strawberry plants. I dismounted my horse and took a closer look. These were indeed strawberries, very, very small but so sweet. Me and my horse had a lovely hour in the sunshine with me gorging on strawberries and my horse on the fresh grass. When I told my friends back at the stables about this, there was not a single person that believed my story (and still don't) because you see, wild strawberries don't grow in just doesn't happen. They can be grown in greenhouses (my granny used to grow some) but not outside in the wild. Never. That is why all of my friends think I made that story up and until horses are able to speak, they will continue to think that. But rest assured that I am not crazy, I know what I saw and ate that day!

You will need a blender or a food processor to make this smoothie.

  • You can use soy yoghurt (or regular yoghurt) instead of the soy milk if you want a thicker smoothie.

  • For a chocolate twist, add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder.
  • You can use almond milk, oat milk, rice milk or semi-skimmed milk instead of the soy milk.
