Easy Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie: Dessert Thickie

Easy Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie: Dessert Thickie

This Easy Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie can also be easily turned into a complete meal replacement if you include the optional extra healthy fillers such as oats.  

You can also easily convert this smoothie into a protein shake by including the optional natural plant based protein such as nuts or seeds.  

You can turn this recipe into a green smoothie by including the optional leafy greens in this recipe.

This is all my favourite flavours and textures in one drink.  A juicy strawberry with the taste of melt in the mouth crumbly shortcake. 

Get all these great desserts flavours without the guilt in this smoothie.

Instructions

Blend the ingredients in the following order: 

  1. Blend the dry ingredients and liquid first for a short time
  2. Blend the greens next. (If using)  for a short time
  3. Blend the fruit and the rest of the ingredients until smooth (or as smooth as your blender will allow. High speed blenders may need 2 minutes for a green thickie, less powerful blenders may need a lot more, sometimes 5-10 minutes)

More tips :

  • Blending this way allows the dry ingredients to be blended for longest, it means the greens will fit in your blender and your fruit gets less blending so it doesn’t become too hot.
  • Add more water if required to thin it out.
  • Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have.
  • If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge or freeze some of your ingredients before blending.
  • You can also replace half of the liquids with ice.  Add the ice at the end. It is better to add frozen ingredients at the end to cool the smoothie down.

Notes

How much should I drink to replace a meal?

  • Only use a meal replacement if you’ve added the oats/quinoa.
  • This green thickie serves 2 so you should DRINK HALF OF THIS RECIPE.  But if you have higher calorie requirements you may need to drink more.

Suitable for Special Diets: 

Gluten free (Use GF Oats or Quinoa), raw (Use raw oats/quinoa), vegetarian, vegan, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free, wheat free, soya free (don’t use soya milk or tofu), salt free (don’t add salt), nut free (replace nuts with sunflower or pumpkin seeds. This doesn’t include coconuts)

  1. What an amazing smoothie recipe. It is made with all of my favorite ingredients and the best part is that you use non-dairy milk and cashew nuts. So nutritious and delicious!

  2. Wow, this is the most delicious green smoothie I have EVER made!! Your website is my new go to for amazing green smoothies. YOU ROCK!! Much love, sister!!

  3. I just made this with cherries rather than strawberries (polished these off a couple of days ago!) and avocado which is my go-to filler. They were frozen cherries which turned this into a kind of ice cream! Lovely way to start the day :P

  4. Nutrition information?

  5. Are all green smoothies here for weight loss? I want a need to loose 40 to 60 lbs. Within the next 6 to 12mo. I know some of your smoothies are good for other things like colds and cancer fighting agents. I am looking to replace at least 2 meals a day if not all 3. Not including snacks which meals should I replace?

  6. Im allergic to cashews ? Is there a substitute?

  7. Hey Katherine,

    Your recipes are amazing! But, this one is my favorite! Love the strawberries and cashews combo, really makes it divine!
