Recipe for Strawberry Smoothie
- 1 pint fresh or frozen strawberries, stems removed
- ½ cup granulated white sugar
- 2 tablespoons rum or brandy
- 1-½ cups very cold milk
- 3 to 4 ice cubes
- ground cinnamon (for garnish)
- Place strawberries, sugar and brandy on a bowl. Set aside for at least 30 minutes, allowing strawberries to masticate.
- Place strawberry mixture in a blender with milk and ice cubes. Pulse for 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth. Pour into a tall, well-chilled glasses. Add a pinch of cinnamon on top of every glass. Stir, if desired. Serve immediately.
- If using frozen strawberries, thaw berries and drain well. Pat dry with paper towels. Excess water would interfere with mastication, preventing the berries from absorbing the rum.
- If you prefer this recipe alcohol-free, replace rum with fruit juice (lemon, pineapple, applesauce, etc.) of your choice.
