Strawberry Orange Smoothies – Made with Kroger Sales – 4/25-5/1
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
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!
