My fridge was fulled of strawberries! That was what happened when I asked my hubby to do grocery shopping. Strawberry was on sales for $1/lb and since he was there to get his banana, he asked me whether I needed anything else. I told him to get me some strawberry and blackberry (which was also on sales) and he returned with 6 lb. of strawberries and two small boxes of blackberries. How to finish the 6 lb. of strawberries in one week? Just me and my girls since he doesn't eat strawberry.
Well, I thought milk shake was the quickest way to get rid of 1 lb. of strawberries at one go. I added zero fat sherbet for extra goodness and of course some syrup to make it sweet. Edda loved it and she had two glasses at one go. Sure made a nice refreshing fruit drink for warmer weather!
~Use a 5 cups blender~
1 lb. fresh strawberry, washed and cleaned of the top part.
1 ripe banana, cut into half (optional)
5 tsp. sugar + 5 tsp. hot water to make syrup (optional if you think your strawberry is sweet enough)
4 scoops of rainbow sherbet (or any variety sherbet)
2 cups of 1% milk
2 cups of crushed ice
In a 5 cups blender (at least 5 cups), first add in the banana, then strawberry, then syrup, milk, sherbet and crushed ice. Blend until smooth. Serve cold into individual glass.
