While making smoothie with bananas in them, I prefer to use coconut milk or almond milk. So this strawberry smoothie is vegan.
I have read that according to ayurveda, some fruits and milk together are an incompatible food combination and can lead to digestion problems. I always find that beverages made with coconut milk or almond milk are light on the stomach and easy to digest. They don’t create heaviness or bloating or indigestion.
I have not used any sweetener in the recipe, but you can add some sweetener like maple syrup, jaggery, unrefined cane sugar, coconut sugar or honey. Addition of sweetener depends upon the sweetness of strawberries so you can add accordingly.
