Pink Strawberry Smoothie
I am kind of an ice cream fanatic. And usually when I make my smoothies they turn out more like shakes. You know, a lot of ice cream and a little bit of fruit. But I’ve been trying to cut down on sugar lately. So this strawberry smoothie has made the rounds at my house. I still prefer lots of ice cream, but this is delicious too.
I am making these for breakfast this morning. Along with some pink heart shaped biscuits. And then I might eat them for dinner too. You can never really have too much
ice cream sugar free low fat yogurt in your life.
So my big secret isn’t really a secret at all. I like my smoothies icy cold so I freeze my yogurt in an ice cube tray so that it is ready for my smoothie whenever I am. If you don’t like them icy cold then you could skip this step.
In a blender add one tray of frozen yogurt cubes (about 1 cup ish) about 15 to 20 washed and hulled strawberries (or raspberries/blueberries/blackberries/a combo of everything), a banana, about 1 cup of crushed ice. You’ll need to add enough liquid to make it the consistency you like. I used about 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice, a little orange mango juice from the fridge and then about 1/2 cup of milk. The frozen yogurt cubes make your blender work a little harder, but I like the creamy iciness that they add. You know, kind of like ice cream.
This recipe makes about 36 ounces of smoothie, which I divided up into three cups (Creamie was munching on hers and wouldn’t give it up for a picture). Then I topped each one with a dollop of whipped cream (thereby ruining all sugar free fat free work the yogurt was doing) and a fresh strawberry. Yummy. And Pink!
