Strawberries are in season and The Chef and I keep coming home with kilo’s and kilo’s of strawberries as they are such a wonderful price at the moment. We just love them. Unfortunately they don’t last forever though, so I wanted to store them for the coming Summer. I often freeze them whole, but after seeing ‘smoothie cubes’ in supermarkets recently I thought it would be great to recreate my own without any added nasties.
Blend strawberries or any other fruit
Pour into ice cube trays
Throw into blender with milk for a delicious and quick smoothie year round
- Add yoghurt to the strawberry mix when freezing
- Add vanilla paste
- Add pureed apples
- Add washed and chopped mint. Perfect combination with berries
- Add smoothie cubes to your water jug to create a lovely centrepiece for your guests.
- The smoothie cubes make a great little treat straight out of the freezer, for the kiddies on a hot day
