Boldly-hued, with a delightful sweet-tart flavor, blood orange juice turns the standard smoothie sophisticated. This Blood Orange Strawberry Smoothie would be a perfect addition to a Valentine's or Mother's Day brunch menu. Use frozen, unsweetened berries for a frostier smoothie. You can also up the indulgence factor by using frozen yogurt in place of regular yogurt.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups (16 ounces) blood orange juice
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, washed and hulled, preferably organic
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) vanilla yogurt, preferably organic
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 4 fresh strawberries, orange slices &/or mint sprigs for garnish (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Place all ingredients except the ice cubes in a blender and purée until smooth.
  2. Add the ice cubes and pulse just until they're crushed.
  3. Pour into 4 glasses. Garnish if desired and serve immediately. Enjoy!
