Strawberry Smoothies

Today's post isn't so much a recipe as it is a bunch of stuff you throw in a blender.  Every morning, recently, I've been having one of these for breakfast because I have this job where I have to go to class and take notes.  This is quick and it helps keep me full through the 3.5 hour class.  I kind of made this smoothie recipe up by looking at a mixture of other smoothie recipes online.  For this recipe, you can use any fruit you want and any juice you want.  The frozen fruit gives it a nice thick texture.  This is my favorite version, so far!

Strawberry Smoothie
  • 1/2 of an avocado (I put the other half in the fridge with some lime juice spread on it.  That stops it from getting brown before the next day.)
  • 5-7 frozen strawberries
  • a few spoons full of plain low fat or fat free yogurt (maybe about a 1/2 cup)
  • a few glugs Orange-pineapple juice (or whatever juice you like or milk)
  • a palm full of fiber powder (this helps me stay full longer, but its totally not necessary)
  1. Throw all the ingredients into a blender and blend away!
  2. If you find that your smoothie is too thick and your blender is struggling (as mine often does) then add more liquid.
That's all there is to it!  This is really yummy and you can make it your own.  If you need more sweetness, you can add sugar or honey, but I find the juice adds all the sweetness I need.   Enjoy :)

  1. I like the idea of the avocado for the good fats, never would have thought of that in a smoothie.
