This is so so SO easy and super healthy for you! Just blend fresh strawberries (about 6-8, tops removed) with your favorite nut milk, I used vanilla almond milk here. If you like, you can add about a tablespoon of raw agave nectar to sweeten. I used store bought vanilla almond milk but of course you can use homemade raw almond milk or any variety of nut milks. Homemade nut milks are even more nutritious than the store bought kind. The taste of this drink rivals any store bought strawberry milk and the benefits are without a doubt superior! Kids will absolutely love this.
Strawberries are packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They benefit our bodies in many ways. For example, strawberries provide cardiovascular support and prevention of cardiovascular diseases. They also improve regulation of blood sugar, with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, and they have also shown to prevent certain types of cancer including breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer.
