Perfect breakfast accompaniment, this Strawberry and Banana Smoothie is something everyone will love! Try this quick and healthy recipe that’s full on taste!
I’m a sucker for strawberries and anything that’s remotely strawberry-like, call me a girly girl but that’s how it is! I cannot refuse strawberries..so when they’re in season I go mad and I mean seriously MAD. I start my day with some muesli with yogurt and strawberries and try to end my day with these dessert kebabs (again strawberries 😉 ) So how could I let this season pass on without me trying my hand on my fav smoothie in the whole wide world (after my snickers smoothie of course)! This is my first attempt and I’m proud to report that it was a success! This smoothie was smooth, thick and delicious!
If you follow my blog you’ll know that I used to hate smoothies with yogurt in them..well, that has changed. YES. I’ve started loving yogurt and I used that in this smoothie recipe too! What’s great about this recipe is that apart from yogurt, it has frozen bananas (which make your smoothie SUPER thick) and also ripe bananas so this smoothie is just the thickest one out there. Don’t worry you’ll still be able to drink it with a straw but I can assure you that it’s nothing like a shake..this is the real thing.
Why I use a frozen banana, you ask!? It’s because it just thickens up your smoothie like nothing else! All you need to do is freeze a banana overnight and whizz it in a blender the next day..you will witness something super cool. The banana actually turns into this creamy frozen yogurt and when you add it to the other ingredients, together they make super trooper thick smoothies! Try it this time and let me know what you think.. if you wanna see how the frozen banana thing works (with pictures) check this out. You can make lots of stuff with it like this Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.
Coming back to this smoothie, it’s thick and delicious! Give it a shot before the season ends and let me know what you think! Here’s the recipe for this delicious smoothie..Try it and enjoy!
