Orange Juice Strawberry Smoothie Ingredients
Strawberries are sweet as well as healthy. Whether frozen or fresh, they make your smoothie tasty and colorful. Remove the green tops if you are using fresh strawberries in your smoothie.
Strawberries provide vitamin C, flavonoids, iron and potassium to your diet.
Strawberries also contain cancer-fighting properties, so smoothie up!
Bananas are a primary component of many tasty smoothies. Bananas can be used fresh or frozen.
To freeze bananas, peel them and break them into chunks. Place them into freezer bags for later use. Frozen bananas help thicken smoothies better than fresh bananas.
Bananas add plenty of potassium to your diet, as well as iron, magnesium and vitamin B6.
Orange Juice adds flavor to every smoothie you use it in. The sweet, tangy taste of an orange is unmistakable.
Whether you use frozen, bottled or even fresh squeezed orange juice is up to you. Just be sure to leave some of the pulp in it. The blender will break it up, and the fiber it adds is a bonus.
Orange Juice is a well-known source of vitamin C. It also carries a good amount of calcium, flavonoids, potassium and other nutrients. Plus, it just tastes delicious!
