Looks and smells like a real creamy strawberry smoothie….

It tastes at least as good as it looks

...and it is.

I’ve been seeing all kinds of great photos of smoothies recently, including the ones from some famous fast foods.  The photos do look good.  But we all know that the fast food smoothie is most likely artificial.

Since I am staying away from dairy for health reasons…and my son has to, I’ve tried to find a good blend of alternatives to dairy.

In my case, I found the best mix to be a blend of Silk Soy and So Delicious coconut milk.  These two alternatives are very creamy.  I also used a cup of So Delicious non flavored yogurt.

To boost nutrients, I also added wheat germ.  While wheat germ may not sound appealing, it is a good way to pack nutrients into the drink.  I also added 1 tsp. of Acacia honey.  This is so simple and can be customized to your taste and available fruits.  The amazing color is real….not artificial.

1.25 cups blend of silk soy/so delicious coconut milk
2 heaping tsp. wheat germ (optional)
1 tsp. honey
1 container of So Delicious plain yogurt (coconut based)
one container of strawberries (or mix with other fruits) trimmed and quartered
 9 ice cubes

Even my son liked it and he is very hard to please. To me this tastes so much better than its dairy counterpart.  And of course if you are allergic to dairy (as my son), there is no sacrifice in the texture or flavor.

  1. I was looking for a delicious smoothie recipe, and stumbled on your blog. Glad I did, because I never would have though of adding wheat germ, but that sounds really good. I started using So Delicious coconut milk and yogurt in my morning smoothies, and they're very thick and creamy. I also heard their kefir is pretty amazing, and I can't wait to try that, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. I love So Delicious products. I use the milk to add a creamy consistency to frostings (prior blog).
