Two weeks ago, I was cleaning out my refrigerator, when I suddenly found a container of strawberries that I didn’t even remember I had bought. Their shriveled up appearance and moldy exterior was enough to tell me that it was too late to save those fallen soldiers. In that sad moment, I vowed to never waste a single strawberry ever again. That decision was the catalyst to the creation of one of my best recipes to date: The Ultimate Healthy Strawberry Milkshake. It’s a recipe I keep on hand at all times; and if you love strawberries like me, you’ll definitely want to, too.

It's super easy to make at home with inexpensive ingredients you already have, and a prep time that barely exceeds 5 minutes. Not to mention, it has a delicious strawberry flavor! You'll never throw out another one of those juicy little red fruits ever again.

-1 cup chopped strawberries

-1 banana

-1/2 avocado (optional)

-1 cup nut milk of choice

-1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt

-Honey to taste

-1 cup ice 


1. In a blender, add the strawberries, banana, avocado, nut milk of choice, Greek Yogurt, and the ice.

2. Blend on high for about 10-20 seconds or until ice cubes are mostly blended.

3. Taste and add honey to desired sweetness.

4. Blend again on high for 5-10 seconds or until ice cubes are fully blended throughout.

5. Pour milkshake into a glass and enjoy.

Recipe Notes:

If you're a fan of milkshakes with a thicker and creamier texture, you can freeze the strawberries, banana, and avocado overnight to give the milkshake that consistency.

And I get it, avocado might sound like a weird addition to a milkshake, but trust me, you can barely taste it! It adds some healthy fats and extra smoothness to the milkshake's texture; if you're not a fan, feel free to omit it!
