Strawberry and Banana Smoothie

Do you ever shake your head and just laugh at how we all complicate things sometimes? I have found that happens quite often in the kitchen. Whether that is ingredients or appliances. Do we really need an oven, a toaster oven, and an air fryer?

Now I have gotten myself off on a tangent. Back to one of the simplest smoothies ever. Sometimes the simplest things we make surprise us by being some of the best. I was in the mood for a smoothie, however, I was out of many of my favorite add-ins.

I usually like to pack my smoothies with lots of nutritious goodness like greek yogurt, spinach, or kale. This turns many smoothies into an entire meal and not just a refreshing treat. This smoothie, though, is a light and delicious treat.

This pretty pink deliciousness was the result of wanting something fruity and refreshing but not too sweet. Frozen banana gives a smooth ice cream-like creaminess. Add the strawberries and milk and you have a milkshake texture and flavor.

I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious a few ingredients in the blender can taste. It is easy to adjust the consistency with a little extra milk if you want it thinner.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

  • milk
  • banana
  • strawberries
  • honey 

Combine milk, banana, and berries in the blender. Puree until smooth. Taste and add honey for the desired level of sweetness.

Frozen berries may be substituted for fresh berries in this recipe. If you choose to use frozen berries, you may want to use a fresh banana instead of the frozen one listed in the recipe.

If you use both frozen berries and a frozen banana, this will be a very thick smoothie and you may need to scrape the sides a time or two during the blending process or add a bit more milk.

Refreshing Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to use up fruits and vegetables before they spoil as well as load your family up with a delicious nutritious treat good any time of day.

A key to the perfect smoothie texture is a good blender. While I really like this Kitchenaid blender, this Oster blender is another one that I’ve happily used for years, I love the glass pitcher and the all metal bearings and blades make it a workhorse in the kitchen.

The Pineapple Mango Smoothie is a refreshingly delicious and naturally sweet kid-approved green vegetable and fruit smoothie.

I make smoothies often for breakfasts or as snacks. Pink, purple, green, blue, and brown, smoothies come in countless colors and flavors. Strawberry Smoothies and Blueberry Banana Smoothies are beloved standbys.

Trust me on this one, Peanut Butter, Banana, and Spinach Smoothie will make eating at least one of your daily servings of leafy greens a pure delight.
