7 delicious strawberry smoothie recipes

Are you a smoothie lover? Looking for new smoothie recipes that use strawberries? If so, I’d like to share with you 7 of my favorite strawberry smoothie recipes.

Let’s take a look at why strawberries are good for you. Strawberries are rich in vitamin C and a great source of dietary fiber. Strawberries can help prevent heart attacks, strokes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.

All of these smoothie recipes use strawberries, along with a few additional ingredients. If you’re looking to cut calories, you can substitute skim milk for milk or skim yogurt for ice cream.

If you like your smoothies really sweet, try adding 1-2 tablespoons of honey to your recipe. I always serve my smoothies in a cold glass, but you can serve them however you want. You can drink them straight from the glass, use a straw, or eat them with a spoon. It is best to always serve the shakes right away.
