My Go-To Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

Hi everyone! Today's lifestyle blog is over one of my absolute favorite drinks on the planet...SMOOTHIES! This is a quick and simple smoothie recipe I use to incorporate fruits into my daily diet. Enjoy!

How To: Strawberry Banana Smoothie


What You'll Need:
  • 1 small banana
  • Smoothie Mix (powder form) in your flavor choice
  • Frozen Strawberries
  • Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Milk (40 calorie carton)
  • Blender 



Preparation:
  • Place 1 cup of frozen strawberries and the small banana (sliced) in the blender.
  • Pour half of the smoothie mix over the fruit.
  • Add a little over a cup of the Almond Milk to the blender (less if you like your smoothies thicker).
  • Blend to your desired consistency and enjoy!


Calories and Fat:
  • Serving Size: About 16 fl oz.
  • Calories: 285
  • Fat: 3.8 grams
Tricks To Reduce Calories:
  • Use less of the smoothie mix. It contains the most calories.
  • Choose something other than a banana. Banana's generally have more calories than other fruits.
  • If you are really brave, use water instead of almond milk. (You'll only save 40 calories though) not worth it to me!
  • Of course, you can also make a 12 oz smoothie rather than 16! I generally make these for work whenever I go in at 10am and don't get to eat until 2ish so more calories doesn't bother me.

I hope you all enjoyed this quick and simple smoothie recipe. Let me know if you try it!
Have a lovely day! -Shelbey
