This recipe is super easy, and making this recipe at home as opposed to store-bought smoothies yields more servings and is more cost effective. I whipped out some bendy straws and a few strawberries to garnish with, but whatever you have works perfectly fine.

  • Step 2

    Wash and chop up the strawberries. I used most of the strawberries in the container, and left about 5 to garnish my smoothies with for later. (Plus, I like to keep some strawberries leftover to eat with some sugar).

  • Step 5

    Measure out two spoonfuls of honey (or sugar) into the blender. Don't worry if it gets a little messy—honey can get pretty sticky!

  • Step 6

    Add the vanilla! I used one teaspoon of vanilla extract, but I like to over-pour a little just cause I love the flavor of vanilla.

  • Step 7

    Pulse the mixture in the blender for about 30 seconds or until the strawberry bits look pretty small. Pour into a cup and enjoy!
