Very tasty strawberry smoothie. In so many smoothie recipes, banana can overpower the flavor of the other fruits. In this recipe it is all about the strawberry. I cut the recipe in half for 2 servings. I didn't have quite enough orange juice but had some strawberry nectar I had bought for another recipe which I used to make up the difference. I used soy protein power. Very good! Thank you for the recipe.
