Summer Strawberry Smoothies

I love strawberries.  Strawberry-rhubarb pie, strawberries and ice cream, strawberry shortcake… but, these summer treats are not particularly compatible with another fun part of summer–swimming (and thus, swimsuits).  So, I have formulated a few low-fat, low-cal strawberry frozen treats to enjoy.

Strawberry-Lemon Smoothie

Ingredients:

10 strawberries, frozen
1/4 cup lemon juice
6 ice cubes
1 cup water

Directions:

Blend ingredients together.

Makes 2 servings (or one large serving) with about 27 calories and 0.1 grams of fat each.


Strawberry Smoothie

Ingredients:

10 strawberries, frozen
1/4 cup soy milk
6 ice cubes
1 cup water

Directions:
Blend ingredients together.  This smoothie tastes even better if you increase the soy milk to 1/2 cup and decrease water to 3/4 cup, but, of course, that adds calories.

Makes 2 servings (or 1 large serving) with about 36 calories and 0.7 grams of fat each.

The lemon juice (or soy milk) can be substituted with other flavours of juice i.e. orange or cranberry.


Sugar Free Frozen Strawberry Daquiri

Ingredients:

10 strawberries, frozen
1/4 cup lime juice
6 ice cubes
1/4 cup (2 oz.) white rum
3/4 cup water

Directions:
Combine ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

Makes 2 servings with about 91 calories and 0.2 grams of fat each.
