Simple Strawberry Smoothie

By Angie McGowan |

A few weeks ago my family and I went to a local u-pick strawberry farm. We had a ton of fun picking a huge flat of berries. When we got home we ate so much we got sick. I made a big batch of strawberry freezer jam, plus lots of other little desserts the following few days. But I still had a ton of berries left over, so I placed the rest in large gallon freezer bags and froze them for smoothies.

Those fresh berries make the best smoothies. But it’s not just about the strawberry, the great flavor comes from the freezer jam I add to the smoothies to sweeten them. You can also use regular strawberry jam and it’s still insanely good.

Simple Strawberry Smoothie

Recipe adapted from Sommer, A Spicy Perspective.


2 cups frozen berries
2 tablespoons strawberry jam
1 cup milk
2 – 3 tablespoons lemon, lime or grapefruit juice (I’m partial to grapefruit in this smoothie)


Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.
