Strawberry Orange Dream Smoothie

strawberry orange smoothie

The other night after work, Fabi brought me home a HUGE pack of fresh organic strawberries he picked up on his way home. I have mentioned on here a million times that strawberries are my favorite fruit, so I was ecstatic to see a huge box of fresh strawberries come through the door! After a few days, I realized the box was a little too big for the two of us to finish within a few days before they go bad, so it became a challenge to find ways to use them up towards the end. Today I used some to make this fresh strawberry orange smoothie. This smoothie recipe reminds me of this smoothie place in the mall we had growing up, and my mom, brother and I would always get a strawberry smoothie. I could always tell there was oranges inside, and I loved the taste. They are so good! This strawberry orange smoothie is the perfect breakfast to start your day, since it is light and won’t weigh you down and make you sluggish.

    Did you know that April is national soy foods month (http://bit.ly/13Vm8jV)? I recently started incorporating more soy products into my diet since I went more vegetarian (not fully there yet…). I still LOVE the texture of Greek yogurt in my smoothies, so I haven’t completely let that go yet. Instead of using milk, I use soy milk now. Soy foods are packed with protein and fiber, and are a tasty way to reduce calories, saturated fat and maintain a healthy weight.  Many soy products like veggie burgers cook and thaw faster than traditional meat sources so that means more time and convenience—who couldn’t use more of both? 😉

    If you want to learn more about soy foods, here is a message from SANA:

    The Soyfoods Association of North America (SANA) provides information about the health benefits and nutritional advantages of soy. SANA offers fun recipes and convenient ways to incorporate soy into meals for everyone – from athletes to families. SANA is dedicated to spreading the word about soy, especially during National Soyfoods Month in April!

      I can’t get enough strawberries at this time of the year! We have them for breakfast almost every morning – a big bowl of them with yogurt on top. Your smoothie looks terrific – something I should try to change the pace. Thanks for this.

      Kristi, I was JUST dreaming about an orange/yogurt smoothie this morning–this looks so good! Have you ever had an orange julius? I used to love those SO much but haven’t had one in years…anyway, this reminds me of a healthier version, plus strawberries! Loving that first photo 🙂
