Strawberry Smoothie Recipes, Healthy Benefits & Nutrition



Strawberries are a favorite fruit of many. While their name includes “berry,” they actually aren’t a berry. This is because their seeds are outside the fruit and not on the inside, where berries have their seeds. It may surprise you to know that every strawberry has nearly 200 seeds. We bet you’re going to sit down and count them now – its more fun to eat them!

Some consider strawberries not only sweet – but also a bit romantic. So try making these strawberry smoothies for your sweetie or to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Just be warned: they are known as an aphrodisiac. Several cultures have believed that if two people share a double strawberry, they will fall in love with each other. Perhaps the same thing can happen when you share strawberry smoothies!

The very first strawberry was grown in France in the 18th century. Today the most strawberries are grown in the U.S.A. – more than 1 million tons! Turkey and Spain also grow a lot of Strawberries, but the most strawberries in the world come from America. Many countries around the world grow and enjoy strawberries. The strawberry is loved by many – try a handful to sweeten your next smoothie!

Adding Strawberry to Your Smoothie

The strawberry is a popular choice for smoothies. Especially for the breakfast smoothie, strawberries just seem to be that perfect way to start your morning. Strawberries are sweet but also have a milder taste than some of the stronger berries. They are not tart like a cranberry. They do not have a deeper berry taste like a blueberry.

A popular flavor combination for your smoothie is strawberry and banana. Both are sweet, but different types of fruits. They both have a milder flavor than some other fruits, and compliment each other in a smoothie. Another favorite choice for your strawberry is to add berries. Blueberries have a deeper flavor and the milder strawberry will compliment the stronger blueberry.

Strawberries are a great kid-friendly smoothie ingredient. Many kids easily recognize strawberries and will eat them, even when they won’t choose other fruits.
