Now coming to the Strawberry smoothie recipe. My son loves Strawberry smoothie and this is my version using condensed milk. I bought condensed milk in squeeze bottle and that makes making this smoothie a jiffy.


Ingredients:
Strawberries, fresh or frozen - 1/4 cup, chopped
Banana - 1/2 of a medium banana, chopped
Milk - 1/2 cup
Condensed milk - 2tbsp
Ground Cardamom - a pinch

Method:
  • Blend all the ingredients until smooth and serve immediately.
Signature

  1. Hi Pavani,

    My most favorite kitchen gadget which I keep raving about on many of my blog recipes is my VITAMIX - don't know what I'd do without it - Since I have the first model of it, I would love to get an updated version :)

  36. My favorite kitchen gadget is my toaster oven. It is used for toast in the morning for cooking and for baking. This has cut down on our gas bill quite a bit.
