There are so many luscious shades of pink, every one of them pleasurable, and every one reminds me of my favorite heavenly fruit, the strawberry. Here's a charming way to celebrate its glories in icy splendor, one that I know will appeal to my son Tommy!

My and my kids favorite smoothie is a "green smoothie". In a blender put ice (1/4-1/2 cup) frozen fruit of choice, rice milk, 1 TBS flax meal, and 3-4 large handfuls of spinach. And blend! If needed, you can put in a spoonful orange juice concentrate and or a squirt of agave nectar for sweetness. We love it and it is good for you too!
There are so many non-dairy milks available now at most supermarkets. My favorites are almond milk and hemp milk (both in the unsweetened vanilla versions), but soy, rice, and coconut milk (not the canned kind you use for cooking) are good options as well; try them out and see which you like.
I'm mildly lactose intolerant, but I'm ok with yogurt. I also like to use lactose-free kefir.
...with berries, nut butters, herbs, etc. Unsweetened cocoa powder goes really well with almond extract or instant espresso powder, though you may want to use dutch-processed and/or a sweetener as it can get bitter.

Help, I am lactose intolerant, don't like bananas but love the idea of smoothies. I have used HMR chocolate mix with water. Any other ideas?
