Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and there’s just something about the holiday that just screams SWEETS! I’m not a real big chocolate fan, but I do love to bake and make other goodies for my family. Since the whole family is on a smoothie kick lately, I decided to make a delicious Strawberry Orange Smoothie for Valentine’s Day! This will be the perfect breakfast for us on Valentine’s Day!
Wondering how you can make your smoothie sweet for your sweethearts? Here’s a hint: SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated can be used almost anywhere sugar is used, including cooking and baking. It measures cup-for-cup like sugar, but contains 678 calories less than sugar on a cup-for-cup basis. One teaspoon of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated contains the sweetness equivalency of one teaspoon of sugar with no calories or carbohydrates! I never thought of using SPLENDA® in my recipes before but it’s such a great addition!

The Strawberry Orange Smoothie is simple to make and so delicious. It’s got my favorite ingredients and a touch of sweetness for Valentine’s Day.
