Strawberry Almond Smoothie

Yield: 2 to 3 Servings, 12 ounces

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c      Ice cubes
  • 2 T        American Almond® Almond Marzipan
  • 1 c        Ripe strawberries, hulled
  • 1/2 c     Milk

Directions

  1. Place the ice cubes in a blender, cover and grind until the ice is partially crushed about 15 seconds. Add the American Almond® Marzipan, milk and strawberries. (Quarter the strawberries if they are oversized.)
  2. Blend until the mixture is smooth and frothy, about 1 minute. (Generally, when you no longer hear ice rattling in the blender, the mixture is smooth.)
  3. Pour into two or three chilled glasses. Garnish with a sprig of mint if desired and serve immediately.

Adult Variation

Strawberry Almond Rum Smoothie – Once the smoothie is blended, add 6 ounces light rum. Blend for a few seconds. Fill three glasses with crushed ice and divide the Strawberry Almond Smoothie between the glasses.
