used Nielsen-Massey Tahitian Vanilla in this recipe because it pairs so nicely with fruit. Tahitian vanilla doesn't hold up well to heat, so it is best used in cold recipes such as this Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie. It is a unique vanilla known for its delicate, cherry-like flavor. I recommend giving it a try, but any pure vanilla extract will add a nice touch to this smoothie.

Don and I love to enjoy this smoothie for a sweet treat after dinner, but it's also a great way to start the day. There's nothing better than fresh fruit blended into a smooth and creamy drink to start the day off right! It is quick and easy to make and ooooh so good!

This Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie is a refreshing drink that gets kicked up a notch with the addition of Pure Tahitian Vanilla.

Ingredients

  • 8-10 fresh strawberries, cleaned and hulled
  • 1/2 cup milk, skim is fine
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure Tahitian Vanilla
  • 1 cup of crushed ice or about 6 ice cubes

Instructions

  1. Combine 8-10 fresh strawberries, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup yogurt, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1/2 tablespoons pure Tahitian Vanilla in a blender and puree until well mixed.
  2. Add in 1 cup of crushed ice and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into serving glasses and enjoy!
  3. TIP: For an even creamier texture use 1/2 cup Mascarpone cheese in place of the yogurt. It is a delicious substitution that makes this smoothie taste like ice cream!

  7. Love a good smoothie, especially the strawberry and vanilla combo. The Tahitian Vanilla works perfectly and so glad you like it. I am loving strawberry season and we make smoothies at least 2-3 times a week, I definitely need to add vanilla to ours now.
