Strawberry Shake

An adorable little girl, friends’ daughter, comes to our home during weekdays after school. She stays until her parents pick her up in the evening. This little girl is a foodie in making and loves to try out new things. She seems to enjoy strawberry milk shake I prepare with soy milk. This is how I make it for her.

Strawberries, Bananas and an Orange
Strawberries, Bananas and Orange

Strawberry Shake with Soy Milk
(to fill two big or 4 small glasses)

Strawberries – 1 cup
Banana – 1 ripe, medium sized
Sweet orange like mandarin – 1 ripe
Soy milk – 1 glass
Honey – 1 tablespoon, or to taste
Crushed ice – quarter cup

1. Wash, trim, and slice the berries. Peel and slice the banana. Squeeze orange juice.

2. Put strawberries, banana slices and honey in a blender. Puree until smooth and combined. Add orange juice, soy milk and crushed ice. Run the blender again for few seconds until well mixed.

3. Pour the strawberry shake into glasses. Serve.

    Milkshake looks so good and refreshing. I like to add yogurt and mint to the banana+strawberry smoothie I prepare quite often. The use of soy milk and orange is new and interesting, will try your way the next time. The picture of milkshake glasses is so cute!

    All I can say is—– LUCKY GIRL! How nice for that little girl -she can come to a loving home after school everyday and be treated so well (with a cooking lesson and the resulting treat)! The parents are lucky to have you as a friend Indira!

    God Bless you!

    Best Wishes,

    Lucky girl Indira,I make strawberry shake with banana …I will make them next time with oranges.

    Strawberry shake looks so delicious and specially it’s a treat in hot summers ..I guess some children are little allergic to lactogen that is present in normal whole milk, may be they can try this absolutely yummy soy milk strawberry shake in that case ,I am sure it will be much more healthy and nutritious..

    Indira, never occurred that one can add three different fruits in a milk shake. As usual, pictures are great. Can I know a bit about your camera?

    Indira, Milkshake looks delicious. Strawberry season here does not start until summer so will have to wait few more weeks before I can try it.

    You are so nice, wish had someone like you where my daughter could go for after care :) Chances are she would never want to come back home :D

    It’s so cool that you make nutritional, healthy goodies just for her. This looks yummy.

    This is my regular breakfast smoothie indira. Wud love to see some recipes with grapes. I always have leftovers in the fridge and find it lazy to eat it as is.Thanks!

    I tried it with fat free Milk instead of soy milk and it was really good. I really admire your clean style of presenting pictures.

  • By Indira, April 17, 2009 @ 1:43 pm

    Thanks friends for very berry sweet comments. I appreciate all the good words and I think I am the lucky one here.:)

    Kalyani, you sure can make it with regular milk.

    Vandya: Thanks. My camera is Nikon D70s.

    Srividya: Grape recipes?Now that needs some thinking. Any ideas?

    Preeti: Glad to read that you tried and liked the strawberry shake. Thanks.

    Grapes can be eaten as snack with cheese, added to curries and salads.Was wondering whether u had other ideas?Hubby dear never seems to forget to bring grapes n they end up in large amounts just like the strawberries u bought from the farm!
    BTW, are ur recipes inspired from WHFoods.com recipes?

    No, they are not. I think WHFoods looks to food bloggers for inspiration.

    Just now tried this shake with normal milk .. It came out wonderful and my husband liked it … Thanks Indira for the recipe….

    Indira,

    This particular recipe would have been a no-no in Grandma’s kitchen. Milk and orange(any citrus) can never be in the same meal. When I was new to this country, I was surprised to see people have orange juice and cereal at the same time and I would think Indians would never do that. Guess I was wrong.

    Usha: The soy extract, though we call it milk, it doesn’t have actual animal milk properties.

    Strawberry shake looks so yummy!

    Thanks for sharing so many vegan recipes.

    What a pretty shade of pink! Your little friend is for sure lucky, she gets to taste all your lovely cooking.
