7 Delicious Strawberry Smoothie Recipes

Are you a smoothie lover? Looking for some new smoothie recipes that use strawberries? If so, I would like to share 7 of my favorite strawberry smoothie recipes with you.

Let's take a look at why strawberries are good for you. Strawberries are high in Vitamin C and a great source of dietary fiber. Strawberries may help to prevent heart attacks, strokes, cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
 
All of these smoothie recipes use strawberries, along with some additional ingredients. If you are looking to cut calories, you can substitute the milk with skim milk, or the ice cream with low-fat yogurt.
 
If you like your smoothies really sweet, try adding 1-2 tablespoons of honey to your recipe. I always serve my smoothies in a chilled glass, but you can serve them any way that you like. You can drink them straight from the glass, use a straw or eat them with a spoon. It is best to always serve your smoothies immediately.
