In today's lesson, we learn how to make a strawberry smoothie. Strawberry smoothies are among the most popular smoothie recipes. As with all smoothies, you can make this strawberry smoothie recipe with fresh or frozen strawberries. I prefer frozen strawberries, because they give this smoothie an icy, milkshake-like texture.

The best part about making strawberry smoothies at home is that you know exactly what's in them - no artificial ingredients, flavorings or colorings.

And this strawberry smoothie recipe makes a terrific healthy snack or breakfast. I like to make this strawberry smoothie recipe with frozen organic strawberries.

Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

Because this strawberry smoothie is made with frozen strawberries rather than fresh, and because frozen strawberries tend to be big and harder to crush in a blender, this recipe has a bit more liquid than the basic smoothie recipe.

Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

  • 2 cups frozen unsweetened strawberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup milk or soy milk
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. honey

Combine all ingredients in a blender, and puree until creamy.
