Strawberry Banana Smoothie

7 Jan

As part of my New Year’s resolutions I have to eat more fruits and vegetables…

I wish I had the time to make myself a huge fruit salad every morning, but I don’t.  So my alternative is to make myself a fruit smoothie every morning.  I try to mix up the fruits to use what’s in season, but also to suit my cravings.  I also try to add ingredients that will increase my protein and fiber content in the smoothie, such as soy protein powder or oatmeal.

This is the smoothie I made this morning…  strawberry banana with passion fruit juice.  It’s yummy…



1 banana
3 medium strawberries
1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup fruit juice – orange, passion fruit, pineapple would all work
2 tablespoons of oatmeal
squirt of honey, optional
a few ice cubes
  1. Mix all ingredients well in a blender.
  2. Add a little water if it’s too thick.

papaya and mango
