Strawberry smoothies make a healthy, delicious, and refreshing drink. Even better, they’re easy to make and ready in a snap when you’re in need of a snack or quick breakfast. Strawberries are one of the healthiest fruits around. They’re low in carbs and calories, but high in vitamin C, manganese, potassium, fiber, and antioxidants. They work well with countless flavor combinations, making them a perfect addition to many smoothies.
How to Make Strawberry Smoothies
To make a strawberry smoothie, you need to start with about two cups of fresh or frozen strawberries (go with fresh strawberries for maximum nutrients). Place the strawberries into your blender, then add a half cup of your choice of milk and a few ice cubes. Blend the ingredients until smooth. Feel free to add in yogurt for a protein boost. Or, create a new flavor combination by adding in some other fruits. You can also try healthy add-ins, such as chia seeds, hemp hearts, or flax seeds, which are good sources of essential fatty acids as well as iron, magnesium, zinc, and other nutrients.
