Sometimes my kids and I feel like having a nice, cold treat, even in the winter. Especially around our area, where we still see 80 degree weather in November. So I found this great strawberry smoothie recipe by Betty Crocker that is delicious!

What You'll Need

How We Did It

North Pole Strawberry Smoothie
We first placed a candy cane in a small zip lock bag and crushed it with a mallet. My daughter had lots of fun doing her job as the candy crusher.

Next I had my daughter dip the rim of the glass cup in some water. The original recipe calls for piping green decorating gel around the rim of the glass, but I didn't think we needed the added sugar.

We then placed the crushed candy onto a plate and dipped the rim of the glass into the crushed candy. Set the glasses aside.

Next we added 1/4 cup of water into a blender.

We added our 10 ounce bag of partially thawed strawberries to the blender. The original recipe calls for a package of frozen strawberries in syrup. Again I felt like the added sugar wasn't necessary so we just bought organic frozen strawberries.

We then covered the blender and blended the strawberries and water on medium-high speed until smooth and slushy. We then transferred the strawberries to a large (2-cup measure) glass.

We washed out the blender and added 2 cups of frozen yogurt.

And last but not least, we added 2 tablespoons of fat-free yogurt into the blender, covered and blended on medium speed until smooth.

I then carefully poured the yogurt mixture and strawberries at the same time into glasses, creating a half-and-half design.

Enjoy! This smoothie really is delicious! My son exclaimed that this was one of the best smoothies he's ever had (he's only 6 years old of course). The sweetness of the yogurt complimented the bitterness of the strawberries really well.
