Orange Strawberry Smoothie

Here’s an easy refreshing summer drink/smoothie, made with minimal ingredients! Great frozen treats for the hot summer days! =) No need to pay $3-4 per fruit smoothie from Jamba Juice or any of those Smoothie stand, just make your own smoothie!!! =P. This just cost me less than $3 to come up with some frozen goodness. =)




  • 1 (16 Oz) Bag Frozen Strawberries, Slightly Thawed (5-10 minutes)
  • 2-3 Cups Orange Juice, Chilled
  • 2-3 Tbsp Sugar (**Optional)


Add everything (usually skip the sugar) into a blender and just pulse for 2-3 seconds  at a time until everything has been blended and is smooth! I used the “Crush Ice” function on my Cuisinart blender. Adjust thickness of the smoothie by adding or reducing the juice. You may need to occasionally give the smoothie a stir to make sure everything has been blended. Be sure to turn the blender off when you do so! =P

With 2 cups of juice used; you get 5 cups worth of smoothie…enough for 2-3 servings. With 3 cups of juice; you get 6 cups worth of smoothie enough for 3-4 servings. =)

You can always add other frozen fruits such as mangoes or pineapple and blend it with your choice of juice =) Enjoy!Smoothie1
