Low-fat Starbucks-inspired Strawberry Frappuccino

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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.
