I figure since my Easy To Make Strawberry Smoothies recipe has done so well through the years (I think it was one of the first articles I ever wrote here at The Fun Times Guide), that I must have a loyal following of Smoothie lovers by now.

So here’s a fun way to make lots of Smoothies of various flavors.
