A smoothie that’ll actually keep you fueled and hunger at bay.
Last summer, I was on a quest to make a gluten-free strawberry shortcake but instead went to another direction by making a Double Layer Lemon Custard with Strawberry Compote... sounds super fancy and yes, it’s a bit labor intensive. I’m not the biggest fan of baking so, I’m back at square one and also avoiding the oven for legitimate reasons, hear me out: 1) we need more hydrating foods in our diet especially during summer, 2) making a shake or smoothie is way easier and quicker than any baked cake despite how tasty it is, and 3) I have an epic cake recipe coming soon to celebrate my birthday and a cake recipe you can have on deck to utilize those fresh summer strawberries.
This Strawberry Shortcake Shake is made up of, you guessed it, strawberries! I’ve been raving in my Instagram stories lately about how much I’ve been enjoying and can’t recommend enough, to join your local CSA to get seasonal goodies like strawberries here in Nashville. We’ve had them every week in our bushel which is a great example of how it can push you creatively to think outside the box with using whole foods. Mix a touch of laziness (because I didn’t want to bake a shortcake) with a hunkering to nourish my body with as many nutrient dense foods in a delicious way, and I present you with this shake that’s:
Quick to make in 5 minutes, maybe 7 with clean up!
Loaded with healthy fats
I’ve been enjoying this mid-morning or as an afternoon snack lately, especially when I’m pressed for time since this is so quick and easy to make. It can keep your hunger at bay mid-morning until lunch or in the afternoon before dinner, I also have some clients who guinea pigged this recipe and enjoyed it for a lower sugar dessert and “sweet tooth cravings crusher”!
If you try this recipe, I wanna hear about it, so let’s chat! Leave a comment it, rate it (this helps me improve future recipes), and don’t forget to tag a picture #nutritionstripped to show how you live and try these recipes on Instagram! I’d love to see what you come up with, this week!
