Strawberry Orange Smoothie
These juicy and tasty strawberries are super delicious. When they're in season then, because when eaten in December, they look more like water bombs.
Strawberries are very versatile. You can, of course, eat them out of hand (or with some sugar), but they are also delicious for baking pastries, preserving jam, or make your own homemade sauce. And besides that, you can also make this healthy strawberry orange smoothie.
What do you need for a Strawberry Orange Yogurt Smoothie?
To prepare this Strawberry Orange Smoothie, you need the following ingredients. You can find the correct amounts in the recipe card at the bottom of the blog:
- Strawberries - If possible, use fresh strawberries. Wash them and remove the crown (in this order. If you remove the crown first, then the strawberry sucks up the washing water, and the fruit becomes watery). Cut them into quarters. If you cannot get fresh strawberries, you can also use frozen strawberries. Or replace the strawberries with raspberries or red berries.
- Yogurt - The yogurt gives a creamy taste to the smoothie. I use Greek yogurt, but if you want to make a skinny smoothie, then low-fat yogurt. And with soy yogurt, this smoothie becomes lactose-free.
- Orange - Of course, you use orange in a strawberry orange smoothie. Use a fresh orange and cut it in half. Then squeeze it. If you cannot get a fresh orange, you can substitute it with four tablespoons of orange juice. Making this smoothie with tangerine juice is also a great idea (4 tablespoons).
- Honey - Honey is used to make this strawberry orange smoothie slightly sweeter.
- Mint - A wonderfully fresh accent to this smoothie.
How do you prepare an Orange Strawberry Smoothie?
You can find a printable recipe with a step-by-step description at the bottom of this blog.
Step 1 - Juice the oranges - Collect the juice. Remove any seeds.
Step 2 - Wash the strawberries and hull them. Next, cut the strawberries into quarters.
Step 3 - Place all ingredients in the blender bowl. Pour the yogurt, honey, and orange juice into the bowl and add the mint and quartered strawberries.
Step 4 - Blend the strawberry orange smoothie - Turn on the smoothie for one minute so that everything is mixed and foamy. Pour into a glass and drink immediately.
Yes, that's possible. If the strawberries sit for 15 minutes, your blender will come through more easily.
Freeze them! Wash the strawberries and hull them. Place a baking paper on a baking tray and place the strawberries on top (as even as possible). Put the baking tray in the freezer. Let them freeze for at least four hours. Then remove the strawberries from the baking tray and put them in a freezer bag. TIP: Frozen strawberries are ideal for a frozen strawberry smoothie with orange.

Orange - Use orange juice if you haven't got fresh oranges (4 tablespoons). You can also use mandarin juice.
Honey - A bit of honey is added to make the strawberries sweeter. You can replace the honey with stevia or maple syrup. Or use half a banana. 4. - Storage - You could keep this smoothie in the refrigerator for up to one day, but preferably not. The creaminess will be less, and the vitamins will also deteriorate if you keep it longer. So preferably make it fresh. If you have made too much, pour the smoothie into an ice cube tray and store it in the freezer until use. You don't even have to let it thaw completely. This smoothie is delicious as a slush. 5.
