STRAWBERRIES N CREAM SMOOTHIE (raw-vegan)
Just because you are eating healthy doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice the flavors and treats that you have always loved. One of the things I have always loved, even as a kid, is strawberries and cream. The sweet fruity flavor of the strawberries topped with rich cream was a dessert that we used to look forward to. As summer approaches us, the memories of ripe strawberries fill my mind. Just because I no longer eat dairy cream, doesn’t mean I have to deprive myself of the flavor. This STRAWBERRIES N CREAM SMOOTHIE gives my taste buds all the flavor of the classic dessert but without the dairy that I don’t want. If you too are dreaming of this dessert, give this recipe a try and never miss it again.
A CHEF’S TIP: make sure you use MATURE coconut milk in this, the fresher the better (open your own coconut). Mature coconut milk is creamy and gives the rich flavor of dairy cream.
