What do you do when you realize that you bought more strawberries than you need because they were so beautiful? I take them and freeze them.  Along with frozen bananas and milk, frozen strawberries make a quick smoothie that is cool and refreshing.

Fresh Clean Strawberries

When you find yourself with an overabundance of juicy berries, rinse them and pat them dry.  Cut them in half and place on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.  Go ahead and cut up some bananas and place them on the sheet, too.  Freeze them for a few hours.

Sliced Strawberries and Bananas

Once they are frozen, you remove them from the sheet and place in a zip-top freezer bag.  Try to squeeze out the excess air.  Air is not our friend when it comes to freezing.

How to Make a Simple Strawberry Banana Smoothie

To make a smoothie, you need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup of frozen fruit
  • 1 1/2 cups of dairy or non-dairy milk substitute

Take out about a cup of frozen fruit and place it in your blender.

Fruit in blender

Add a cup and a half of your favorite dairy or non-dairy beverage.  (I use vanilla almond milk which makes it a Vegan Simple Strawberry Banana Smoothie.)  

Puree/Pulse/Liquify everything until the desired consistency.  If the smoothie is too thin, add a little more fruit, one piece at a time.  Too thick?  Add more milk.

Strawberry and Banana Facts

Strawberries are a naturally cholesterol-free fruit and one serving (8 strawberries) has more Vitamin C than an orange.

One serving of strawberries has only 50 calories and contains beneficial amounts of Vitamin C, potassium and fiber and block cancer-causing substances as well as retroviruses.

In addition to fiber (3 grams in a medium banana), bananas are a natural source of potassium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Copper, and Manganese.  Bananas also have pectin and resistant starch which may moderate blood sugar levels after meals and reduce appetite by slowing the emptying of your stomach.

Bananas contain antioxidants, including dopamine and catechins.  (Antioxidants may help reduce damage from free radicals and lower your risk of some diseases.)
