 How to Make a Simple Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Fresh Clean Strawberries

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.

When you find yourself with an overabundance of the 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.

Then when the mood or hunger strikes, 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.


Yield: 1 large smoothie
