Guest Post: MMD's Strawberry -or not - Smoothie

While I'm away enjoying some time in the Northwoods, I asked a few friends to fill in with guest posts.  Today I bring you the fabulous Megan Mae, creator of the many buttonflowers you see me wear from time to time and a good blogger buddy of mine!  She has a great recipe to share to beat the heat.  Take it away Megan!

Hey everyone, It's Megan from Megan Mae DailyToday I'm bringing you the best summer treat to beat the heat.

Strawberry - or not - Smoothie
1/2 box of strawberries (~8 ounces), rinsed and capped
1/3 can of coconut milk (my advice: stir the solid bits before pouring)
cup of ice (I used crushed, but whatever will work for you)
Optional add-ins: banana, orange juice, any other berries or fruit (fresh or frozen), fresh mint leaves 
Put it in blender... Blend! Garnish with whatever you used. Drink.

Coconut milk works as a great substitute for the usual dairy and sugar that goes into the average smoothie. This refreshing little drink can be changed up any way you want. Go crazy - experiment! 

What are some of your favorite smoothie flavor combinations?

  4. yum! this sounds delicious. I'm not a milk fan, no matter if it's soy, almond, coconut, or rice. But I do LOVE a good banana smoothie with some almond milk!

  7. Wee! I still love strawberry and coconut as a favorite, but pineapple, orange, and coconut is a good mix too.

    Hope everyone gets to try this.

  8. Mmmm, looks lovely! I like Strawberry, kiwi and lime!

  9. Mmm... The coconut milk is a brilliant choice; never would have occurred to me. As I'm trying to avoid dairy, it's a great tip. Thanks!
