Strawberry Banana Smoothie

H and I enjoy making homemade smoothies.  Our favorites are blueberry, strawberry/banana, raspberry and mango.  We buy large quantities of fruit in season, wash, dry, cut, and then freeze in single layers, before storing in lock and lock containers in our freezer for later in the year.  We prefer to use frozen fruit as it gives a thick and slushy consistency (ice tends to water down a smoothie).

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Makes 2 generous servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk (skim, 1% or your choice, such as almond, soy …)
  • 2 – 1/2 cups frozen strawberries (or fresh, placed in freezer until slightly frozen)
  • 1 banana
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp chia, ground flax or hemp seeds (or a combination of all)
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (optional – if using, omit honey)

Blend all ingredients on high speed until smooth.

Cheers!
