The strawberry smoothie base

Add honey and chocolate

For those with a sweet tooth there is a great recipe variant for this drink that adds sugar for that sweet treat we sometimes need. Honey can be a substitute for the two tablespoons of sugar, making the drink a little sweeter and giving the drink a creamier texture.

We can add the chocolate at the end as decoration: melt some in a bowl and then drip a couple of teaspoons onto the smoothie when served in a glass. Also, if you keep a couple of whole strawberries you can dip these the hot chocolate and when cooled and solidified you can use them as decoration. You can also use syrup to flavour the drink.

Strawberry smoothie with banana

If you want a supply of extra energy to start the day add a banana to your smoothie. Reduces the amount of strawberries and chop them up with a banana, blend with the remaining ingredients listed in the basic smoothie and serve it in a glass. You can decorate this, for example, with a slice of orange. You are ready to start the day!
