I have been making Strawberry-Banana Smoothies for the past couple days in a bid to add more fruit to my diet. They taste delicious and they definitely are satisfying. Plus it is an easy way to eat and write at the same time! So here is how I make mine!
-4 to 5 strawberries, frozen
-1/4 cup water
-1 whole banana, peeled
-1 1/2 tbsps greek yogurt
-a dash of cinnamon
Now I use a magic bullet and this makes about one serving. If you use an actual blender or whatever, play around with the measurements to find the perfect blend for you!
- I rinse the strawberries under hot water to remove any ice and to thaw them just a bit.
- Strawberries and water get blended together until smooth.
- Next, add the banana and greek yogurt. Blend again until smooth.
- Add a dash of cinnamon (or whatever amount you prefer) [optional step]
It will be nice and cold for you and ready to drink. It is the only way (aside from cake) that I will eat bananas since they have a funny texture. The potassium supposed to help my sore muscles and seems to have done so already.
My ‘secret’ ingredient, the cinnamon, is supposed to be good for boosting metabolism, and I don’t mind a hand in that department! (Don’t add to everything though, because it does ruin a good chicken burger!).
Anyways, I’m off to do my yoga and write more for my book! A late start doesn’t mean a day is ruined, after all!
