Strawberry Banana Smoothies

March 15, 2011

For a long time, I’d feel guilty about drinking an entire smoothie.  They’re so good they seem like an unhealthy treat.  I’ve since gotten past that, as there’s not a speck of unhealthiness in a glass.

We never measure this recipe.  I’ve written the formal recipe below, but it can be summed up in two sentences: Blend ice cubes, fruit, yogurt, and milk until smooth.  A few tips and tricks that we’ve discovered over the years:

  • Add more ice cubes for thicker smoothies.
  • Add more milk for a thinner smoothie.
  • Any frozen fruit can be used in place of the strawberries/banana.
  • If you add a hefty amount of ice cubes to begin with, you’ll over compensate with the rest of the ingredients, and end up with double the smoothie you’d like to eat.
  • If the ice isn’t hitting the blades of the blender, add more milk or give the blender a good shake or two (while it’s off, of course).
