Method

Hull the strawberries. Peel the bananas and cut them into rough chunks. Put the fruit in a food processor or blender, crumble in the coconut and add the water. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the goblet as necessary. Add the skimmed milk, lemon juice and ice cubes, crushing the ice first unless you have a heavy-duty processor. Process until smooth and thick. Pour into tall glasses and top each with a slice or two of strawberry. Serve immediately.

Variation:- To give this smoothie a tropical flavour, use papaya, mango or pineapple in place of the strawberries and add lime juice rather than lemon. To make a dairy-free version, replace the skimmed milk with soya milk.
