Ingredients

  • 8 ounces frozen strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Blend It All: Combine frozen strawberries, honey, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, salt, and black pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth.

Variation Ideas

  • Swap the Vinegar: While we’ve used red wine vinegar, you can switch it up with apple cider vinegar, rice wine vinegar, or white vinegar for a slight flavor difference. Balsamic vinegar can also be used, but expect a richer, earthier taste.
  • Try Lemon or Lime Juice: Add a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice for an extra zing. Adjust sweetness accordingly by adding a touch of maple syrup or orange juice to balance the acidity.
  • Sweeten Your Way: Substitute honey with maple syrup, or experiment with your preferred sweetener. If using granulated sugar, blend it in gradually, tasting as you go to achieve your desired level of sweetness.
