I confess. This smoothie doesn’t take 5 minutes to make. I only wrote 5 minutes because it sounded catchier, plus I don’t think people search Google for Smoothies that take 53 seconds to come together.
I should have named it. . .53 Second Simple Strawberry Smoothie, but I’m prone to fibbing.
It all started when I was eight and bit a hole in my shirt because I didn’t want to wear it. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Hindsight is 20/20.
But surely, this is a good idea. Right? Right?
Well, spank me if you must. But only if it’s a love pat. Like we’re playing basketball together or something, and I just made both of my free throws. Sheesh. Get your mind out of the gutter:/

5 Minute Simple Strawberry Smoothie
This frosty treat is so very BERRY and DELICIOUS. It reminds me of those whole fruit popsicles that taste like the sweetest most perfect fruit picked straight off the vine. No cream or other additives needed. I made this smoothie for my 11 year old who loves fruit to the core. But she loves it simple. Never wanting me to add anything like cream or granola, that would mask the simplicity and genuis of its natural state. Try it. I know you’ll love it.
One more thing! I send these to school and work for my families lunches. Made a little bit thicker than what you might make if you were to consume it immediately, poured into a Take Away Thermos, the smoothie will keep and be frosty and thick for lunch time and even after!
Makes 4-6 Servings
- 3 cups Almond Milk
- 2 cups Ice
- 2 cups frozen strawberries (you don’t have to used frozen strawberries, but it won’t be quite as frosty. When I’m sending smoothies to school/work, I want it as cold and frosty as possible so it remains thick and frozen when my family consumes them.)
- 1 cup Strawberry Jam*
- water, cranberry juice – to thin, if needed
- Into a blender, add Almond Milk.
- Next add remaining ingredients, ice, strawberries, and jam. Blend. Taste for thickness and sweetness. If you’d like it sweeter add more jam, and if you’d like it thinner add water/juice 1 TB or 2 at a time until you reach the consistency that you’d like. Pour into thermos to enjoy later, or into a glass to enjoy immediately!
*I like this Low Sugar Jam for myself, but used the regular sugar version for my kids.
