Strawberry Orange Banana Smoothie

20110830-074740.jpg

A current lack of spinach and kale in the fridge led to this totally kid-friendly Smoothie. I think next time I’d throw in a handful of oatmeal. It’s also fantastic with a cup or two of diced mangoes or peaches.

10 large frozen strawberries
10 ice cubes
1 banana
1 small orange or Clementine (try to peel off most of the pith and the hard white core)
1 cup vanilla yogurt
2 tablespoons sugar

Put everything in the blender and add enough water to cover all but an inch or two of the ingredients. You could substitute any dairy or non- dairy milk as well. Blend well.

  1. Have you tried using Blue Agave instead of sugar to sweeten? Also, if you are using frozen berries have you tried leaving off the ice?

    • I have not used agave, no. I like the ice- only the berries are frozen, and I like my smoothies pretty thick. Plus, it adds bulk without adding calories!
