Boldly-hued, with a delightful sweet-tart flavor, blood orange juice turns the standard smoothie sophisticated. This blood orange strawberry smoothie would be a perfect addition to a Valentine's or Mother's Day brunch menu. Use frozen, unsweetened berries for a frostier smoothie. Or, if you want to up the indulgence factor, try using frozen yogurt in place of regular yogurt.

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries (washed and hulled, preferably organic)
  • 3/4 cup/6 ounces vanilla yogurt (preferably organic)
  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • Garnish: 4 fresh strawberries (orange slices and/or mint sprigs)

Steps to Make It

  1. Place all ingredients except the ice cubes into a blender and purée until smooth.

  2. Add the ice cubes and pulse just until they're crushed.

  3. Pour into 4 glasses.

  4. Garnish if desired and serve immediately. Enjoy!
