This is a recipe that uses your frozen strawberries to make a milkshake that is low in sugar, high in flavor, and got my picky eater child to get some protein and fruit in his system.  It is simple, fast, and a great alternative to the more traditional shakes made with ice cream.

Ingredients:

8-10 frozen strawberries

1 cup milk (whole or low fat)

1.5 Tbsp sugar

Put everything in your blender and pulverize it until it is completely smooth.  How many strawberries you use depends on how large yours are and how thick you like your shakes.  Start with the proportions here but feel free to improvise until it suits your specific tastes.

This recipe makes 16 ounces of shake.  (One large one, or two medium ones).
