Strawberry Orange Smoothies

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Smoothies for a mob? I'm a coward and would never attempt it, but I've just come from a breakfast where it was done successfully. I thought those of you who regularly entertain large groups for brunch or breakfast, might like to make this smoothie for your family and guests to enjoy. There were about 50 people at the breakfast this morning. The smoothies were made about an hour before serving and kept in half-gallon containers. The containers were given a vigorous shake before the drinks were served, but there was no unsightly mess to spoil the appearance of the lovely tables that had been set for breakfast. The recipe can be doubled or tripled, but remember the limitations of your blender. Even an average batch will have to be made in two parts and then mixed together. I think you'll like this. It is a fast, easy and inexpensive way to help feed a gang. Here's the recipe.
