Also, once the mixture becomes homogeneous, we stop, and add the sugar.

Why the latest sugar? Ideally, it does not liquefy so much and so our palate feels the granites, if we put it before it can disintegrate, it will be sweet, yes, but the texture of the sugar granites adds a lot.

In case you like more acid you can skip the use of sugar. You can also use the juice of half a lemon, which gives certain acidity to Strawberry smoothie, this depends on the degree of ripening of the strawberries and your taste. Its your choice.
