Strawberry Orange Smoothie

This is just a simple smoothie my family loves to start the day with. Depending on the size of your blender, you may need to make this in two batches, or cut down the recipe. When I make this for my picky kids, I usually get a bit “sneaky” and add some carrot puree. They never know, the “orange” blends right in, and I feel better about feeding them extra nutrition.

    This recipe us fantastic!
    We’ve been putting smoothie into 1/2 c. (or so) sized Snapwear plastic storage containers (no leaking ever with these containers), freezing them, and putting them into lunchboxes in the morning with a spoon.
    Come lunch or snack time at school, the kids enjoy their smoothie “ice cream”.
    Yummy, good for them, and no need to add an ice pack to their lunchbox on these days.

    Throw a handful of spinach in there – may affect the color, but the taste won’t be affected at all! I like the idea of the carrot puree – had never thought of that one :)
