OK, I know what you're thinking. Sour cream...in a smoothie? Well it's time to step up to the ledge my friend, because I'm about to make you into a believer.
We're big fans of fruit smoothies at my house. They're tasty, refreshing, and a good replacement for a milkshake if you're looking for something a little healthier. This strawberry smoothie involves adding a secret ingredient - sour cream! - to add a little extra creaminess and zing to your typical fruit smoothie.
This recipe is so easy it almost doesn't need a tutorial, but I couldn't resist sharing it with you anyway.
INGREDIENTS:1 cup frozen strawberries (you can substitute fresh if you like but you'll need to add ice cubes too), 1 cup milk, 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 3 teaspoons Splenda or other sweetener
INSTRUCTIONS: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well until smooth. Yields 1 serving (approximately 2 1/2-3 cups.)
If you're using fresh strawberries, you'll need to add more sugar and some ice to help give it that nice, cold thickness you look for with smoothies.
