Missing strawberry milkshakes? Our facebook fan Stephanie wrote: “So I’m really craving a thick creamy raw strawberry milkshake right now! Any direction to a good recipe? I’m searching your site in hopes.”

So, this morning I hopped out of bed and straight into the kitchen to create a healthy milkshake recipe for Stephanie, and for you the next time you’re craving one! I used fresh strawberries, but Caleb and I have noticed that frozen strawberries seem to add more flavour to a smoothie. Plus when you’re making a milkshake, having it nice and cold is usually preferred.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut meat
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh strawberries *frozen is preferred for this smoothie
  • 1 date, pitted
  • 1 scoop vanilla sunwarrior protein *optional
  • 1 tsp. red maca *optional
  • 3/4 cup Coconut or Vanilla Almond Milk

Instructions: Blend ingredients in your Vitamix on high for about 15-30 seconds until you have a creamy, milkshake like texture. Serve & Enjoy!

Add on ideas:

  • 2 tbsp. Tocotrienols
  • 1 tbsp. hemp seeds *for added omega’s 3,6,9

I think this recipe would taste absolutely divine with tocotrienols, in place of or along side the Vanilla Protein powder. Tocotrienols are so great for your skin and they also add a light, fluffy like texture to any smoothie you add them to. We ran out of them, otherwise they would definitely be in the recipe. Stay tuned for an updated version!
