You guys know drinking cabbage is my new MO these days. I just can’t get enough–which is why I’m so excited to bring you my latest favorite, cruciferous concoction: this ahhhmazing Clean Strawberry Smoothie.
Would you like a sip?
Yes, yes you do.
I know this because my husband and I took down an entire pitcher last weekend–and battled over the last few sips hiding in the bottom of the blender.
As you know, smoothies can quickly go from healthy to high-sugar depending on just what you put into the blender. For this reason, strawberries are one of my favorite smoothie fruits because they’re naturally low in sugar. They add a subtle sweetness, fiber and important phytochemicals to smoothies while keeping the total sugar count down.
And, natural or not, if there’s one thing most of us can afford to cut back on, it’s most likely sugar.
Grab your blenders and give this a whirl this weekend. The hubs will vouch that it tastes just as good as it looks.
Serves: 2 | Serving Size: approx. 2 cups (16 fl. ounces)
7 ounces chopped red cabbage, frozen (about 1/2 of a small, 4” head)
1 1/2 – 2 cups cold water
2 cups sliced strawberries, frozen (about 10 medium berries)
1 small banana, sliced and frozen
2/3 cup plain 2% Greek yogurt
Break up the frozen cabbage with your hands, add 1 1/2 cups water to start and puree in a high power blender until it looks like very coarse shave ice. Add up to 1/2 cup more water to get this consistency, if needed. Next, add strawberries, banana and Greek yogurt and blend again until smooth. Leftovers may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
