Strawberry Smoothie (Top 8 Free)

The kids loved the chocolate smoothie so much yesterday, they wanted another one today.  But I thought we'd try a fruity version instead.

The hubby (and I occasionally) drink strawberry smoothies for a little evening treat, and I knew I could easily modify our recipe to meet our kids' food needs. 

I use a Magic Bullet cup and fill it with frozen strawberries.  Then I add a heaping tablespoon full of coconut yogurt (I used vanilla flavor since that's what I had on hand) and fill with lemon-flavored water.  You could use lemonade, OJ, or whatever type of juice you want.  You can also add other frozen fruits, like pineapple, berries, oranges, etc.  You can also add a few leaves of spinach or kale for added nutrition.  Twist the Magic Bullet cap on and blend!  Delicious!

The kids loved this fruity smoothie just as much or more than the chocolate one.  Again, they asked for seconds (in all fairness, they ask for seconds of just about everything).  It's a keeper for summer refreshment!
