Strawberry Orange Smoothie

One of the great joys of smoothie making is experimenting and finding all those great fruit combinations.  Who knew that strawberries and oranges could produce such a delicious smoothie?

What you get when you combine these two is a strawberry orange smoothie that is neither too sweet nor too tart.   In fact neither flavour overshadows the other, they just seem to complement each other.

Add in other berries, or other fruits such as pineapple and you get some interesting colors that range from pinkish to more peachy.   The flavors are never too sweet, even with the extra berries.  In fact if you find berry smoothies way too sweet, you may just love these.

When I make my orange smoothies I use the whole orange (minus the skin of course).  Why waste all that valuable fiber.   Just peel the orange and add the orange segments to your blender.  You will probably find you need less liquid, particularly if your orange is juicy.   Start with a quarter of a cup of liquid then add more if needed.


Orange Berry Delight

The raspberries give this smoothie more of a pinkish tinge and a little more sweetness.  Definitely one of my favorites.
