Fruit Smoothie

berries


Strawberries are in season again. Well, they never are out of season only at this time they are redder and sweeter. I got me a pack from the grocery last Friday and forgot about them when I came home. :D I planned to make something of a cake base with gelatine and strawberries on top but was too lazy that I ended up with this Smoothie.

Trouble was, I can't find a part of our blender when I was preparing so I had to improvise. ;) I don't have yoghurt  so i scratched it off. I put an overriped  banana in the fridge and used it as 'replacement' for ice cubes. I used a regular mixer and thank goodness the contents didn't get wild: thrown all-over the kitchen.

So voila! I therefore conclude that from strawberries and a frozen banana and some milk, you can make your own healthy smoothie in a few minutes. Remember smoothies are a great source of fiber and vitamin C and is a good antioxidant as well...

Note:

For a basic (and real) smoothie, use -
# 1/2 to 1 cup fruit
# 1 cup plain or fruit yogurt
# 1/2 cup fruit juice
# about 4 ice cubes
Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Process on high until the ice is completely crushed and the drink is smooth and creamy.

I've actually never hear of using frozen bananas before. By us the bananas often go over ripe. Be sure I will freeze them and squeeze them.
Thank you for this good idea.

I love strawberries whether fresh, flavored in ice-cream, cake, puree, or shake.

That looks so DELICIOUS! My mouth is watering.

In response to your question if the turkeys in my yard were noisy - only the male gobbles during mating season. We hear them off in the woods sometimes but in the yard I don't know they are there until I see them.
Thanks for your visit.
