Strawberry Orange Smoothie!

Hello everyone! Lately I have been making these smoothies pretty much every day, and they are delish! And super healthy might I add :) So I thought I would share! Normally, I am only making this for myself, so this recipe is for 1 very filling serving, or 2 smaller servings.

13 ice cubes (yes, 13)
1/2 to 3/4 cup of water (to help the blending)
1/2 large organic(optional) orange
3 large organic(optional) strawberries
12-15 drops of Sweet Leaf Liquid Stevia Vanilla Creme

1. Place 13 ice cubes in your blender, and add water.

2. Add oranges and strawberries to the blender.

3. Start blending! First I pulse it a few times, and then put it on chop for a few minutes until everything is all smoothie-like.
4. Add 12-15 drops of the Vanilla Creme Liquid Stevia to taste. I personally like 14!

5. Put your blender on mix, then on blend until you get the texture you would like.

6. Pour it in a cup and enjoy the wholesome goodness!

This makes about 16-18 ounces. I went to and figured out the nutrional values for this! Of course they are kind of approximate.

Here's a little about the Liquid Stevia:

Used worldwide as an no-calorie herbal sweetener, Stevia is a South American herb that is 30 times sweeter than sugar. With hundreds of studies showing Stevia is a safe alternative, it’s the next big thing.

No wonder. It's all-natural, contains zero calories, and has a zero glycemic index. Finally, you can supplement your food and drinks without the chemicals of artificial sweeteners and calories of sugar! And it is safe for diabetics and hypoglycemics.

You can usually get it at any health food/organic market, but if all else fails, you can order it here!

P.S. This smoothie is HCG Phase 2 approved!
