The other day I was craving a Frappuccino badly but being 8 weeks post-partum, I really am trying to watch my calories. At Starbucks, the strawberries & creme Frappuccino is 15g of fat & 54 sugars. I am all for treating myself but would rather save the calories for a glass of wine (or 2) or an icecream sundae! Then I realized, I have strawberries and a Vitamix and I conquered a low-fat Starbucks-inspired version on my own. This version is 80 calories, 8 g sugar, and 5 g fat.
- 1 cup organic frozen strawberries (you can use fresh but I like frozen to keep smoothie cold)
- 1 1/4 cup almond milk
- 2 tablespoon organic palm sugar (or sugar of your choice)
- 3 ice cubes
Directions: In a blender, mix in strawberries, almond milk, ice and sugar on high speed. Mix until creamy & smooth. Pour in glass & top with light whipped cream.
