Strawberry Orange Smoothie







I drink smoothies year round no matter if it is hot or cold. A smoothie is often my breakfast of choice. It is easy to make and you can drink it on the go. A powerful Vitamix or your blender of choice does all of the work for you. All you have to do is add the ingredients. This strawberry orange smoothie is a healthy way to get your breakfast in while tasting good and it only has four ingredients in it.






The honey in this smoothie is a natural sweetener so no sugar is needed. This smoothie has a fruity taste and the honey adds a bit of tang to the flavor. It comes out a beautiful light pink color that is pleasing to the eye. Your tastebuds will thank you once you take a sip.



Strawberry Orange Smoothie

Yield - one 16 oz smoothie

Ingredients:

1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon honey (orange blossom honey is my preference)


Instructions:

1. In a blender place 1 cup of orange juice and 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
2. Blend until combined
3. Place vanilla yogurt and honey into the mixture
4. Blend until combined






What is your favorite smoothie to make at home?


Notes:

This smoothie can easily be customized by adding your fruit of choice.

Using frozen strawberries eliminates the use of ice, which can often water smoothies down.
