This smoothie recipe is so yummy, easy to make, and pretty healthy for you too!

 

I was inspired by the weather forecast – there are some warm temperatures coming our way, and when you want something to cool you down, this is a great alternative to overindulging on a milkshake or ice cream cone.

 

Since the main ingredients are on sale this week at Kroger, you can make 2 smoothies WITH plenty of leftover orange juice for only $3.94.

 

Since you’ll have so much orange juice left over, just add $1.65 (for another package of strawberries and another yogurt) for each additional 2 servings. I recommend buying one extra of each, in case you decide you want more strawberries in this recipe or if you want to make a second batch!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredient List/Grocery List

 

1 Pint of Strawberries (on sale this week for $1.25 each)

 

1 Yogurt Cup (plain or strawberry, or really any flavor will do. Kroger yogurt is on sale this week for $0.40 a cup)

 

½ Cup Orange Juice (Minute Maid on sale for $2.29. You can also do orange/fruit juice blend to add additional flavors)

 

3-5 Ice Cubes

 

Sugar to taste

 

Total bill: $3.94

 

 

Recipe

 

1 – Clean and hull strawberries. Many blenders should be able to chop them whole, but there is also no harm in slicing them into halves or quarters.

 

2 – Place ice cubes in a plastic bag and pound them into pieces…gently using a hammer or other object, so as not to break the bag.

 

3 – Place strawberries, ice, yogurt, and orange juice in the blender and blend.

 

4 – Evaluate the consistency. If you want it thicker, add more strawberries or ice; if you want it thinner, add more orange juice or yogurt. Customize it to make it just right for you!

 

5 – When it is well blended and has the right consistency for you, open and taste the smoothie. If you want a sweeter smoothie, add a little sugar at a time, taste, and repeat if you want more. So as not to make it too sugary, I suggest adding only 1-2 teaspoons at a time.

 

6 – Serve in glasses and enjoy!

    I just made something similar last night but used vanilla milk instead

      That sounds really yummy too! I’m assuming you used the milk in place of the yogurt and/or OJ? Shows how versatile smoothies are, since you can also use any combination of fruit!

  2. Ummm! This sounds incrdibly good! I cannot wait to give it a try!
