With springtime just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about refreshing fruit drinks and easy recipes. This refreshing strawberry banana smoothie is super easy to make, and chock full of nutritional value. Can you squeeze in two minutes to treat yourself to a fortifying treat?
I’ve been drinking my fair share of smoothies lately. They are so darned easy and it makes me feel good that I’m putting something healthy in my body. As a breakfast replacement, I’m saving hundreds of calories from my typical sausage, eggs, and toast (or a biscuit, yikes!) meal. You can even add some protein powder to give it even more goodness.
Smoothies are a great food, as well as a drink. They can provide as much nutritional value as some meals, and can even make a fruit lover out of the most discriminating eater. And this one has one of my most favorite flavor combinations, banana + strawberry. Yum!
Whether you are using our Strawberry Banana Smoothie as a replacement meal, snack, or quick breakfast to get your day started, five ingredients are all that’s needed.
You can even make this Strawberry Banana Smoothie and take it with you on your way to school, work, or the gym.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 large banana
- 1/2 cup hulled strawberries
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (plain or strawberry)
If you don’t drink almond milk, feel free to replace it with your milk of choice. And how about this, you can use a perfectly fresh and ripe banana, or one that is way past its prime. They both taste delicious in a smoothie!
For the oats, I use I rolled oats, which add lots of protein and fiber. They also help you to feel fuller longer.
Strawberry Banana Smoothie Directions
- Place oats, almond milk, banana, strawberries & yogurt into a blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Serve immediately.
Are strawberries out of season where you live? No worries, this recipe is just as good using frozen strawberries. Want it colder? Throw in a few ice cubes.
All the sweetness in this Strawberry Banana Smoothie is natural, from the fruits, no additional sugar is needed.
You can also make this in your Nutribullet.
A great way to jazz up anything “homemade” in my eyes is to give it a decorative straw or a nice glass. Adding a slice of fresh fruit also gives the recipient of the drink an idea of what flavors to expect when they drink it.
As simple as that seems, it was a Catering 101 lesson I learned years ago when I had restaurant businesses.
