A strawberry smoothie is incredibly delicious and refreshing. The drink is made with only a few simple ingredients. It can be made with fresh or frozen strawberries. Frozen strawberries are sometimes best, as you can reduce the ice and make the smoothie thicker. The yogurt used is optional. For example, strawberry yogurt will enhance the strawberry flavor; whereas, plain yogurt will reduce it a little bit.
For an optional twist, you could try blueberry banana yogurt. Another option this to add some additional fresh fruit such as bananas, blueberries, or kiwi. If you add a few additional strawberries, the drink becomes thicker and similar to a milkshake. Strawberry smoothies are an incredible treat on a hot summer day.
