Strawberry Banana Smoothie
July 17, 2016
In a word... YUMMY!
1 Put orange juice, yogurt & honey in a Bullet type blender cup & stir till the honey is well combined with the other ingredients (see Tips# 3 & 4).
2 Add strawberries, bananas & ice.
3 Process till blended & smooth. Do not over blend.
Tips & Suggestions
1 Freeze bananas ahead of time. Choose fresh bananas that are partially green or just turned yellow with no brown spots. The more they ripen the sweeter they become & have a higher calorie count.
2 Slice bananas about 1/2" thick & place, in a single layer, in a quart sized freezer bag. Freeze & use them within 2 weeks or so.
3 The reason for the extra step of stirring is because the honey tends to clump & stick to the Bullet cup, never getting fully integrated into the smoothie.
4 If you don't have a Bullet type blender, you can use a regular full-sized blender. Eliminate the stirring in step# 1, just add all the ingredients in the OPPOSITE order listed & blend until smooth.
