skinny strawberry smoothie



So... I don't know about you, but I love a good smoothie! I try to make smoothies at least weekly (and even more during the summer when we're just dripping with fresh fruit). My girls love them, and if I'm super sneaky sometimes I can even get them to eat vegetables they don't usually like if they're all blended up in a smoothie! I'm always on the lookout for fun new recipes, and when I saw this one on Pinterest, I tried it right away. I love how simple it is, and it is incredibly tasty! We usually have a pitcher of Crystal Light in the fridge anyway, so it's super simple to take some fruit out of the freezer and whip up a smoothie any time. The texture is a little different than the smoothies I usually make, sort of halfway between a slushie and a smoothie, but it's delicious and refreshing. It got the thumbs up from everyone in my family, so it's a definite smoothie win!
Skinny Strawberry Smoothie
adapted from Something Swanky

2 cups frozen strawberries (or any other fruit that sounds good!)
1 cup prepared Crystal light (I used kiwi strawberry flavor, and it was fab)

Blend together until well blended, and enjoy!

  1. Wow, this IS easy! It looks delicious and so refreshing! I'll have to remember this drink especially in the spring and summer when I crave strawberries so. (Although I can find frozen ones year round:)

    2. I did use fresh strawberries, two cups of crushed ice, 1 cup of Crystal Light lemonade (prepared) and a spoon or two of sugar to fight the tartness! Delicious!!
