But before we get into the strawberry smoothie recipe, can I share something with you? I’ve long had an obsession with strawberries. You’ve heard me say before that chocolate doesn’t do it for me. But strawberries? Yes, please! Well, I have a little secret to share…
Why You Should Avoid Store Bought Smoothies
Okay, here goes… as a kid I LOVED Nesquik Strawberry Milk. It was my once-in-a-while treat, and I loved it. I still remember opening up that Nestle can and scooping out that so-called strawberry mixture into my milk. I’ve long given up that fake strawberry powder. And thank goodness. I just looked up what was in it.
INGREDIENTS: SUGAR, NATURAL FLAVOR, BEET JUICE POWDER, LESS THAN 2% OF MALTODEXTRIN, CARRAGEENAN, BETA CAROTENE, CITRIC ACID, SALT. VITAMINS AND MINERALS: SODIUM ASCORBATE (VITAMIN C), FERRIC PYROPHOSPHATE (IRON), NIACINAMIDE, ZINC OXIDE, THIAMIN HYDROCHLORIDE, COPPER GLUCONATE, MANGANESE SULFATE, BIOTIN
Wow! I can’t believe I used to drink this stuff. It’s shocking to see and I’m sure when I was younger they used artificial food coloring rather than beet juice. There’s also maltodextrin, carrageenan and other questionable ingredients.
Since I’ve been on this real food journey, I’ve been looking for natural food swaps that are WAY better than what I used to like. And I think you’ll enjoy this recipe too.
