Strawberry banana smoothie

Prep

5 min
I love smoothie! Who doesn’t? I am sure it is a part of us on a hectic day at work. My most favorite one is strawberry and banana smoothie.By definition, smoothie is a blended creamy beverage made from fruit / vegetable and served chill. They may contain crushed ice, frozen fruits, frozen yogurt, cold milk, sweetened syrups and will have a milk shake like consistency.California is getting chilly day by day and I feel so cosy wearing a thick jumper and fluffy slip-on most of the time and additionally, my home is so warm with the lighted candles in the corner. Last night as I sat down to watch “Chopped” in Food Network, S who was till-then-busy with his laptop wanted something to munch (late night snack). We have been trying to cut down on calories to lose few pounds, hence I denied any snack and offered fruits. He said “NO” (that was quite a big loud No!).

He demanded strawberry pastry or strudel to satisfy his sweet tooth and finally after tough negotiations , he got convinced for a glass of smoothie made from fully skimmed milk. The frothy smoothie with natural sweetness of ripen bananas and tempting red strawberries was a true dessert for wrapping our late nights. That’s my story on making this healthy delicious drink last night. It is such a simple drink made in a couple of minutes and tastes absolutely heavenly.

Well, I brought down the milk to room temperature by placing a glass of it in warm water and didn’t serve them very cold. I am sure many wouldn’t enjoy a cold beverage on a chilly night, atleast I wouldn’t enjoy it.

Here is the recipe for it.


Serves 2
Ingredients
10 strawberries – cleaned & halved
1 ripen banana
500 ml skimmed milk
1/2 tbs sugar syrup/honey (optional)
or
1/2 tbs Hershey strawberry syrup (optional)

Blend them all in a food processor till they become frothy. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

  1. i love smoothies and the ones with banana are my favourite..banana-strawberry and banana-apple are the most common at our house!

  2. This smoothie sounds great anytime ~ it’s perfect!

    ps: I was very surprised that the judges on "Chopped" gave it to the chef that totally flubbed the dessert round, by not getting his main portion on the plate.
