5-Minute Strawberry Smoothie

I got to thinking… you may have come to this blog because you are just dipping your toe into a healing diet. Maybe you’re not ready to go full-on AIP. Maybe a doctor told you to go on an elimination diet. Or maybe you’re a full-time AIP veteran who is tired of cooking, and just wants something EASY to make.

I’ve got you with this recipe! Four ingredients that you may have in your kitchen right now, and FIVE minutes. I bet you have time to make this. BONUS: you make one for now, and you’ll have two more to pop in the fridge to have as a mid-morning snack, or to supplement your breakfast.

One for now, two more for the fridge!

These are small…

…because I don’t want to overload you with sugar – even fruit sugar. The recipe makes enough for three 8-oz jelly jars. (It is a great help to have dishwasher safe lids that won’t rust.)

Smoothies are a fun addition to breakfast or as a small treat, but if you are trying to heal, make veggies and quality meats your jam. You could maybe have a portion of Turkey Breakfast Hash, and a small 5-Minute Strawberry Smoothie to go with it.

Slurp away!

Another breakfast idea

If you cannot fathom eating vegetables for breakfast yet, you could also try these in a bowl with Lovebird cereal, which is a 100% AIP cereal! This is especially nice if you are sensitive to coconut milk, but you still want your cereal. Top your smoothie with it to make a smoothie bowl!

Incidentally, this company returns a portion of its profits to fight childhhood cancer. Because they’re cool like that. 😁 Here’s the link to check them out. You can use code WENDISAIPKITCHEN to get 10% off your order. You’re welcome.

Enjoy your 5-Minute Strawberry Smoothies! And as always, I wish you great love and deep healing.

There are only 4 ingredients in this 5-Minute Strawberry Smoothie. So easy! Add a small portion to your breakfast, or eat as a snack.

Ingredients

  • 1 large banana, preferably yellow/green (Makes a thicker smoothie!)

  • Juice from 2 large oranges (about 2/3 cup)

  • 6 large frozen strawberries*, or to taste

  • 2 scoops of collagen powder (optional, for gut health and protein)

Directions

  • Blitz all ingredients in a blender. (This is the one I use. It’s not fancy, but it works hard!)
  • Divide between three 8-oz jelly jars. (It is helpful to have dishwasher safe lids, if you’d like to store them in the fridge. Shake jar before drinking leftovers as they will separate overnight.) Alternatively, you could pour into a bowl and top with Eat Lovebird cereal, which is totally AIP! Use code WENDISAIPKITCHEN for 10% off your order. Here’s the link to check them out.

Notes

  • *You can use fresh strawberries, but using frozen berries makes it cold, like a shake. If you prefer, you could freeze the banana, and use fresh strawberries to get the same effect.

  1. I’m allergic to bananas. What can I substitute?

    • Hi, Joni! Hmm. Technically, you could add any fruit you like in its place, but the thing that banana gives it is that smooth, creamy texture. What about avocado? You may need to bump up the sweetness with something else, but avocado might provide the texture we’re looking for without offering too much flavor. Of course, this is all just a guess. You never know until you try! 🙂
