Food Rookie: Cool Strawberry Snack

Thursday, April 10, 2008

I bought a large 2 kilo package of fresh strawberries a few weeks ago for a really great price.
Now for those of you who don't know metric, 2 kilo is about 5 pounds of strawberries. Thats a lot of berries for two people to eat before they spoil.

This forced me to make a plan to save my berry investment! After all it's not a deal if you throw out more then you use, so I decided to freeze a good portion of strawberries. It may not seem odd to everyone, but freezing fruit is some thing I have never done in my house.

I had to go on line to see how it was done correctly. Luckily all you do is wash, trim, and freeze flat, after frozen transfer to a bag and save. Awesome, now I have 4 pounds of frozen strawberries!

What is a frozen strawberry good for?

I didn't know ether, but I found out!
You see it turns out that when you have nothing better to do your boredom can be an inspiration. I went to the kitchen and tossed some berries and milk in the blender with a spoon full of vanilla extract. It was delicious! So here is my recipe for frozen strawberry smoothies!


  1. 5 frozen strawberries per person (large but not HUGE)
  2. milk
  3. Vanilla extract
  4. sweetener (optional)

Simple as it can be, all you need is a blender and a cup!

Place berries in blender (or cup if you have a hand blender)
Cover with milk, add vanilla and blend smooth.
After mixed taste and sweeten as needed.

I used a fake sugar and light milk, and it was wonderful and thick. Feel free to use sugar and any milk you want, the frozen berries is what makes it thick.

It's like a creamy smoothy daiquiri kind of drink, I hope you enjoy!

A note from my sister to this recipe:

Add silken tofu 1 or 2 tablespoons and it makes it super rich and delicious like a milk shake. The best part you are adding fabulous protein and you can’t taste the tofu at all.
