This is one of the easiest recipes on the planet. It has two ingredients and it’s so simple to make. Here’s how to make a skinny strawberry smoothie.
I think I ate my way through December.
It was a wonderful month.
Full of parties and dinners and lunches and brownies and chocolate covered pecans and cookies that said Merry Christmas and peanut butter fudge and chocolate cakes with sprinkles on top and three layers of strawberry creme glaze.
And I actually think that I feel a little rounder just writing that last sentence.
And with every party—every celebration—every toast—every bite—I told myself that I would do better next year.
A veritable paragon of healthy eating.
Umm…self…..next year is here.
And last time I checked healthy eating time is knocking on your door.
Time to make a strawberry smoothie.
I’m trying to start strong.
Seriously. Whoever created the four food group pyramid would have used me as a poster child.
And then when my back was turned?
A chocolate chip cookie crept its way in.
And then another….and another….and another.
MAKE THE MADNESS STOP.
So now I’m working on replacing all my chocolate chip cookies with this…..a Skinny Strawberry Smoothie.
It’s easy and fast.
And icy and cold and yummy.
And it only has two ingredients.
Skinny Strawberry Smoothie
2 cups frozen strawberries
1 cup water flavored with Crystal Light Strawberry Lemonade
Blend together until smooth.
Smile and reach for a carrot stick.
ideas to serve with a strawberry smoothie
One of the cutest ideas I had was to cut a strawberry like lemon and add it to the glass. In other words, slice a strawberry in sections. Then cut a slice in the strawberry and add it to the side of the glass. You could also serve these with a vegetable plate or even small fruit and cheese platter. Perfect for summer parties.
variations of the strawberry smoothie
I’m working on trying this with some other fruits, too. Substitute frozen peaches and Crystal Light Peach Drink Mix for the strawberries.
You could also frozen raspberries and Crystal Light Raspberry Ice Drink Mix for the strawberries.
So many drink ideas, so little time.
See how easy that is?
Don’t you feel skinnier just reading this post?
And besides…..everyone knows……chocolate chip cookies are so last year. 🙂
