1 cup fresh or frozen ripe strawberries
1 large, ripe banana
3/4 cup pineapple, cranberry or grape juice
3 ice cubes
1 teaspoon honey
For the fresh strawberries, cut off stems with small, sharp knife. Peel banana and break into chunks.
Put banana chunks into container of blender. Add berries to blender, then add fruit juice and ice cubes.
Add honey to make a sweeter shake.
Place lid on blender. Fold kitchen towel in half, drape it over blender and firmly hold down lid with your hand. Turn blender on to high speed - continue pressing down on lid so it stays in place and is not forced off by the whirling liquid inside. Blend until shake is thick and smooth, about one minute.
Pour shake into one or two glasses.
Recipe makes 1 or 2 servings.
