Healthy fats are so important to incorporate into our diets. I like to include coconut oil in Meghan’s diet as much as possible, especially now that she isn’t getting the medium-chain fatty acids from breastfeeding. Yes, the medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut milk are the same as in breast milk! Thus, today’s Strawberry Smoothie recipe was born.
I may not have blogged about it, as I often create new smoothie recipes that I don’t think anyone will be too interested in, but she loved this. Tim just happened to get home as I was making her this smoothie for a snack. He tasted it and said, “I want one!” so I made him one, too. They both slurped them down quickly. I tasted it and felt like I should have been drinking it on a tropical beach somewhere. Delicious.
Strawberry Smoothie Recipe Ingredients
You can use dairy or non-dairy yogurt for this recipe. I recommend full-fat yogurt and Greek yogurt is great for extra protein.
I also recommend unrefined coconut oil for this recipe.
How to Make a Healthy Strawberry Smoothie
For best results, I recommend a powerful blender like the Vitamix. I’ve had the same blender for over almost a decade and it still works beautifully for super smooth and creamy smoothies. If you need a more budget-friendly option, then I recommend the Ninja blender. See my video blender review to see both of these in action!
Make sure to blend the smoothie for long enough so the coconut oil gets fully incorporated. You don’t want small chunks of coconut oil in your smoothie.
