I have tried four different smoothie recipes from this site in the past couple of weeks, and this one is my favorite! It is so tasty and easy to prepare.

Because my strawberries were frozen solid (hard as rocks) I had to blend 1/4 milk into this drink to thin it down. This was the best flavored smoothie I've tried in a long time. We loved it. The blend of lemon, berries and orange juice was very refreshing and delicious. Will keep this one around. Thanks Janice!

My children really liked this. My strawberries weren't very sweet, so I added a touch of sugar. Thanks for sharing.

A really yummy smoothie Janice. I didn't have the strawberries..(I know, how can I rate this recipe when I didn't use the correct fruit) but I had some leftover pineapple, kiwi, oranges and cherries from a fruit salad I made the other day. So, I dumped that in my blender and used key lime yogurt since I couldn't find the lemon. This was sooo good. Didn't exactly follow the recipe, but I'm sure my version is just as yummy.

I made this smoothie for breakfast. This recipe tasted very good. It was so quick and easy to make. I usually freeze my fresh strawberries because I don't always use them up quick enough. What a great way to use frozen strawberries!

Delicious! Really refreshing. I think next time I'll add some vanilla to play with the flavor, but it really doesn't need anything, it's great as is!

I added 3 cubes of ice and the juice of one lemon (and the lemon zest...why not? I like things tart). I also used frozen raspberries instead of strawberries. (I guess I changed it a lot). But WOW...this tasted like raspberry sorbet. It was Magnificent!
