Make a NC Strawberry Smoothie
Visit one of the Triangle's pick-your-own strawberry farms this month, then freeze some of your fresh-picked strawberries to try this smoothie recipe from the N.C. Farmers Association and N.C. Soybean Production Association.
½ cup of frozen strawberries, thawed, including juice
2 tablespoons of vanilla soy milk
2 tablespoons of water
½ cup of crushed ice
For more protein, add 2 tablespoons of powdered soy protein isolate.
Thoroughly mix thawed strawberries, soy milk (or protein isolate) and water in a blender.
Add crushed ice and blend until smooth. Serve in a 12-ounce glass. Makes one serving.
