Strawberry and Tahini Smoothie

Strawberry and tahini smoothie in a clear glass on an outside table.

In a previous blog for a Chocolate Banana Oat Smoothie, I mentioned that I am working on consuming more fruit. Fruit-based smoothies with no added sugars are a way that works for me to enjoy more fruit on a daily basis.

Do you have leftover tahini in your refrigerator from making hummus or a salad dressing and find yourself wondering how you can use the rest? Well, I have a suggestion!

The ingredients in this recipe can be varied according to taste and availability, but note that the nutritional information will change. Personally, I prefer just 1 tablespoon of tahini but if you wanted a more pronounced tahini flavor you could add up to 2 tablespoons.

Ingredients

  • 5-6 whole strawberries, frozen
  • ½ banana, frozen
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • ½ cup non-fat greek yogurt
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • Optional Pinch of kosher salt

Directions

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender until a smooth consistency is reached.
    • Note: You can add a little bit of water to make it thinner based upon taste preference. You can add ice to thicken if needed.
