20 medium to large strawberries (just a little over a pound), 3 cups of ice, 1/3 cup of orange juice (can be substituted with water), a scoop of ice cream (optional), 1 cup of vanilla or strawberry yogurt (I prefer Stonyfield organic yogurt), 7 tablespoons of sugar.
1) Wash strawberries, cut off the green tops. I like to cut strawberries in half, but it's not necessary.
2) Fill blender (I use my Ninja) with 1.5 cups of ice and 1/3 cup of orange juice, blend for 20-30 seconds, until smooth.
3) Add strawberries, a scoop of ice cream, yogurt, and sugar. Blend for another 30 seconds.
4) Add another 1.5 cups of ice and blend until smooth.
|Strawberry smoothie with yogurt and orange juice|
The strawberry smoothie with yogurt and orange juice is a great low calorie drink that's quick and easy to make. This recipe can be modified to taste. You can add a banana, blueberries, an orange, skip the ice cream, substitute orange juice with water, use more or less ice and sugar. Yields 4+ servings. Enjoy!
