Strawberry Mint Smoothie

DSC_0139-2

Smoothies is an all time favorite “snack” to me. Extremely quick to make, very refreshing to taste and even better, making smoothie is a sure-shot way of consuming all the fresh fruits stacked up in our fridge! Don’t just eat one at a time, go all-the-way..

Anyway, so when you don’t have variety of berries to blend into your smoothie, you have to get creative and think of other ingredients that go with berry of your choice. And as I always have mint hanging around in our house, I decided to make the case for it. Fresh mint, strawberries, greek yogurt, honey and some reduced fat milk. You could add chia seeds too!

It is purely coincidental that this smoothie looks a delicious shade of pink like this fig smoothie.. Or maybe I like this color.. May be it’s little bit of both!
