I want to come completely clean about this shake here: It was born out of extreme laziness. One morning, I was in love with my bed more than ever, and had to drag myself out of bed to make breakfast for my DH before he left the house.
Woozy and sleepy eyed, I weighed my options in the kitchen. I simply couldn’t be bothered to turn on the cooker to make oatmeal, let alone scramble up eggs and toast. I did the next best thing- I made this shake.
I’m sure you can imagine the look on my DH’s face when, as he was seated at the dining table waiting happily for his rich breakfast, I presented this cup (with the beautiful strawberry o, no less!). He was in shock!!!
Trust me now (I’m not from Warri, but last is not my position), I started ‘washing’ his head with health jargon.
Me: Honey, hmmm, you don’t even know sef. I was reading on the powerful antioxidant qualities of strawberries (struggling soooo hard to keep a straight face), and I read it’s also better to eat strawberries as breakfast, if you can.
DH: *still in shock at his “breakfast”*
Me: I even decided to make a milkshake with Coconut milk, and you know how good that is for you. In fact, I don’t know how we’ve gone this long without having this as a regular breakfast. It will really cleanse our bodies (omigosh!!! Chidinma!), and will also help build our immune system. Aren’t you tired of heavy breakfasts? I’m very sure you’ll notice the difference today.
DH: Are you serious? You really need to do more research o. Who knows what else we’re missing out on?
Me: *inward sigh of relief* Abi?
And he drank it, and left the house. Unfortunately for me, now that I’ve shared this secret with you, it will no longer work for me. You can use it though, till you get caught. LOL!
Seriously though, this shake is very filling. And it’s somewhat between a slushie and a shake, due to the fact that I used frozen strawberries.
This serves 1
1 cup of coconut milk or almond milk (I used Lite)
60g of frozen strawberries
Optional: 1 teaspoon of honey. I didn’t use any, but if your strawberries aren’t sweet, you might want to use honey.
Put everything in your blender and blend. That’s it!
Carbs: 7.3g (3.0g of sugar)
