Smoothies, fruit juices and milkshakes make for a healthy breakfast. Plus they can be made quickly. There are many fruit-based smoothies that can be made easily. Few Smoothie recipes i have shared on the blog are:

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.

How to make strawberry smoothie

1. Rinse, hull and then chop 200 grams strawberries – about 1.25 cups chopped strawberries. Add them in a blender or mixer.

  1. Can we use cow’s milk instead of coconut or almond milk?

    • Suvidha, you can use but don’t have everyday. according to ayurveda, certain fruits and milk are an incompatible combination and lead to digestion problems. since i have used bananas here i have not added milk. if you plan to have fruit smoothies everyday, then its better to use almond milk or thin or light coconut milk.

      • OK Mam,thanku for the information.

        • welcome suvidha.
