Comment ça y'en a marre des fraises? - Strawberry (soy)milkshake
[How come you're bored of eating strawberries]
Sometimes, you've got to face the truth: you're addicted.
I don't know about you, but the less time a product is available, the more I become obsessed with it.
Strawberries are a good example.
They start pointing their nose out around mid-may and disappear by the end of July. Almost three months, you tell me. Yes sure, but I'll answer: only three months
But I should consider myself pretty lucky to have real-ruby-red-home-grown strawberries as soon as the beginning of May.
It's now accurate that I do love strawberries. Indeed I love them in every single way.
As a fruit, they're just perfect: juicy
and gorgeous looking.
Strawberries are so versatile: the real food chameleon
Fresh, I like them dipped in sugar or in melted chocolate
, cut into cubes and drizzled with balsamic vinegar
Other great options are countless: from a mousse
to a soup
, from a compote
to a posh entremet.Two problems remain:
- too little time
- too many ways to use strawberries
So basically what happens is that you end up making a new strawberry thing everyday and everyone -- except you -- gets bored with strawberries.Strawberry (soy)milkshakeI love the way the soymilk outlines the natural freshness and creaminess of the strawberries.
This drink is very refreshing and makes a great snack for hot summer days.
500g fresh strawberries (I used Mara des bois, which are very tasty and rather sweet)
400ml soy milk, ice cold
Wash the strawberries and put the in a food mixer. Add the soymilk and blitz for a minute or so.
Put in glasses and top with fresh strawberries.
Drink as soon as it's ready.
