Strawberry smoothies are one of my favorite breakfast foods, because they're easy to whip up, they're healthy, and the kids will actually eat them (no battles over skipping breakfast).

Unlike some smoothie recipes, this one is best made with either a Vita-Mix Turbo Blender (Compare Prices), another smoothie blender (such as a Blendtec (compare prices) or a food processor, because the frozen strawberries can be big and difficult to puree. Alternatively, if you're using a regular blender, you can cut the frozen strawberries into smaller pieces to make them easier to puree.

I don't recommend using fresh strawberries for this smoothie because it ends up tasting a bit watery, sort of like strawberry milk.
