I’m starting off this cookbook with a recipe named after its lead character: Luke Skywalker.
“Luke definitely has the Force on his side, but sometimes he gets an extra boost from these scrumptious smoothies” – The Star Wars Cookbook
My husband and I had these for breakfast this morning, along with our usual eggs and toast, for an extra shot of fiber!
All you need to do is toss the strawberries, banana, juice and ice cubes into the blender, and blend.
The recipe says either fresh or frozen strawberries will work, and gives you the option of pineapple, grape, or orange juice. I settled on frozen strawberries, since my husband bought a massive bag of them a few weeks ago that are taking up freezer space. And for the juice, I decided to go with pineapple…because pineapple is delicious.
Even though the instructions are super simple, they go into great detail in the directions to make sure any kids trying this at home know exactly what to do. This includes a lot of instructions you wouldn’t typically see in a cookbook, like “Put the lid on the blender. Make sure it fits tightly.” Very helpful if you’re trying this with little ones!
Of course it’s a 10/10. How can you go wrong with strawberries, banana, and pineapple? If you decide to go with grape or orange juice it should still be quite tasty, though slightly different.
This is a very simple recipe. Just throw everything into the blender.
You’ll need to purchase strawberries, bananas, and some sort of fruit juice. You may have some of these items already in your fridge.
Though the recipe says it makes 2 servings, the servings are only about 1 cup.
If you’re using frozen strawberries, you can probably skip the ice cubes. I found our smoothies to be too thick with both. With regular/fresh strawberries, though, you’ll want to include the ice cubes as well.
