This is one of my favorite fruit smoothies very tasty and simple to make. For this drink you will need to purchase a bag of frozen whole strawberries in the freezer section of the grocery store. Please stay away from sugar added or syrup added frozen strawberries any big local supermarket should sell just frozen whole strawberries.
– Defrost the bag of frozen strawberries overnight or until strawberries are very soft and syrup is in bag
– Measure out 1 cup of strawberries add to your blender
-Add 1 1/2 cups of crushed ice
– 1/2 pack of the individual crystal light lemonade packets
– 3-4 packets of splenda or your favorite sweetener depending on how sweet you want your drink. I use 4 packets but I love sweets.
Blend until smooth add water if needed.
At only 75 calories per drink I think this is a winner. There are many benefits to eating berries (antioxidants) as long as you keep your fruit intake to 1-2 servings per day (sugar) and I usually try to drink this in the morning or before the gym.
