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, tangy, tasty 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)milkshake
I 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.

Strawberry 'soy)milkshake
serves 2

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.
