Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Last month, I shared a recipe for Banana Coconut Smoothies.  Since then, I've made smoothies many times and have tried a variety of different flavor combinations.  Some attempts weren't as successful as others, but we won't talk about that today! :) 

This morning, I whipped up one of my favorite smoothies:  Strawberry Banana.  I use banana in all of my smoothies, since I have lots of sliced bananas in the freezer.  Dropping a handful of the frozen banana chunks into the blender with the rest of the ingredients keeps the smoothie cold as well as giving it a creamy milk shake texture.  Mmmmm! 

Strawberry Banana Smoothie for one

  • 1/2 banana, sliced and frozen
  • 3-4 sliced strawberries
  • 6 oz. strawberry yogurt
  • 6 oz. fat-free milk
  • 2 Tbs. cream of coconut
  • Add all ingredients to blender pitcher and blend until smooth. 
I drank this smoothie for breakfast this morning and nibbled on a handful of almonds.  Such a healthy, filling and TASTY breakfast!  I think I want another one for lunch!  :) 

Do you drink smoothies?  What are your favorite flavor combinations? 

I'll be sharing linking this post to the following blog carnivals this week:

I just bought a big bag of frozen strawberries and frozen mixed berries at Costco and we've been trying different combos. I like the idea of the cream of coconut, that sounds good. We always have bananas around too so they always go in the smoothies. So good! Thanks!

MM I love smoothies! My roommate just broke my blender :( I'll need to get another to try this.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
