Strawberry Orange Smoothies

Smoothies have become a big part of my families life.  Even my 14 month old has one in his sippy cup with a little extra milk added to it to thin it out.  (Much cheaper than those yogurt juice things they sell in the baby department!).

A few months back, I started making smoothies during my freezer cooking days in pint sized freezer bags & I absolutely love the convenience having single servings ready when I want them.  

These Strawberry Orange Smoothies have quickly become my ultimate favorite kind to have in the mornings.  You can even sneak in a little pureed carrot to it to give it a little more of a nutrition boost, and you can't even taste them.

Strawberry Orange Smoothies

  • 20-25 whole strawberries
  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • ice cubes to your preference


Combine everything in a blender or food processor until smooth.  (You may want to divide this in half & blend it in 2 sessions depending on the size of your blender/food processor)  Serve, or freeze in pint sized freezer bags for later use. 

From frozen, just unthaw a little until mushy :)
