February always has me feeling all things red and pink. And when it comes to creating dishes I am a sucker for themes. So of course I have to make a red/pink smoothie to go along with all of my valentines décor throughout my house. And because I love clean eating the smoothie also, obviously, has to be healthy! Well I have the perfect thing, a strawberry smoothie.
One of my favorite things about putting together a smoothie is using real fruit to keep it fresh. Another ingredient I love using in my smoothies is yogurt! Yogurt is my go to for a healthy replacement and it basically disguises itself, to the point that my kids think I’m adding ice cream not yogurt! It’s super beneficial with good probiotics and helps keep you healthy. I do watch for yogurt labels and prefer using a low fat plain in my smoothies. By using both the strawberries and yogurt we are keeping the smoothie light, tasteful and healthy!
I use Lite and Sweet to sweetened this delicious smoothie and it makes it so flavorful enhancing all the other fresh fruit ingredients. Lite and Sweet is a great smoothie enhancer because it’s simple to use, use like you use sugar. Except it’s a natural sweetener that has 3 calories per serving. Taste like sugar with no bitter aftertaste.
I love being able to have a smoothie that my entire family can enjoy. And I won’t lie, they kind of remind me of the strawberries and cream frappuccinos from Starbucks, which makes them that much more addictive. Plus, if you’re like me, you get to turn the drink into another Valentines decoration and fancy it up!
