The secret to a perfect strawberry smoothie

Aug 31, 2017 12:00:00 AM

In the summertime when strawberries are in season, turning them into a smoothie is a great way to bring them into the sauna.


It’s important to drink plenty in the sauna, but who said it has to be water? Summertime is strawberry-time, and that goes for sauna beverages as well. Mix up the berries with yogurt for a creamy, refreshing snack, and add the perhaps somewhat surprising secret ingredient, orange juice, for a sweet tang.


1 quart (4 cups) ripe strawberries

1 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1 tablespoon sugar

4 thin orange slices (optional)

Put all ingredients in a blender and process at the highest speed until a well-blended puree forms, for about 15 seconds. Taste the mixture and sweeten with a bit more sugar, if you want. Pour into tall glasses. Then, enjoy!
