STRAWBERRY FRUITY SMOOTHIE (raw-vegan)
YES! Another RUSTIC and SIMPLE smoothie with strawberries….OH how I LOVE them so! I really like smoothies for many reasons. The main reason is the creativity that can been shown with the different combinations of fruit and veggies. Another one is that I can start my day right, or anytime for that matter, with a nutritious drink. Smoothies can be frozen for dessert, iced for a cool drink and be drank at parties for a healthy alternative to sugary alcoholic drinks. Actually the top reason is that they taste SO DARN GOOD! Speaking of tasting so darn good, my recipe for STRAWBERRY FRUITY SMOOTHIE will have everyone raving, even the kids. This smoothie is modeled after the classic flavors of orange, strawberry and banana. Who doesn’t love these flavors?? All of these ingredients not only taste good but they are full of the vitamins and nutrients that my body craves. So if you are looking for a smoothie you can even get the kids to drink, whip up a batch or two of this strawberry fruity smoothie. CHEERS!
2 organic Cara Cara oranges
1 organic navel orange
1 cup organic ripe strawberries
1/2 cup water
1 ripe large organic banana
Peel (reserve for another recipe like an ORANGE PEEL GRINDER)and remove the fruit from the oranges, medium dice and place in your blender. Wash and de-stem the strawberries, quarter and add to the blender. Now add the water and blend on high for 1 minute. Peel and quarter the banana, add it to the blender and blend on high for 2 minutes. Pour into your serving glass and enjoy!!
NOTE: this is a thick smoothie (just how I like it). If you prefer to have a thinner smoothie just add small amounts of water while continuing to blend AFTER the above instructions are completed.
