Banana strawberry smoothie
I love making refreshing, easy, healthy drinks especially over the summer. This banana strawberry smoothie only requires 3 ingredients and 5 minutes of your time. It is pretty much one of our signature smoothies because my kids love the combo of strawberries and bananas. Sometimes I even freeze these as popsicles.
Anytime fruit is in season I like to incorporate it into our diets as much as possible. Strawberries are great just on their own but getting creative and making no bake desserts with them over the summer is a must for us. We just love strawberries!
This weekend I had a chance to spend it with my kids. Even though I was not able to be with them for the entire time, since I pretty much have to devote a lot of my time studying, I was glad I got to see them at last.
I only get to come home every two weeks so it is very tough sometimes. Yesterday we spent some of our time outdoors playing in a trampoline I got for them not long ago. I figured since we are not traveling any where this summer and they will be home most of the time, I needed to provide something for them to get them moving and spend much of the energy they have.
Play outside gets my kids hungry and they constantly ask for snacks so this time around I prepared this banana strawberry smoothie that literally only took about 5 minutes to make. I used Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk. I always use unsweetened varieties. You can also use almond coconut blend or even cashew milk. They are all great.

On another note, I have been really busy studying lately however I have managed to whip a few recipes this week. Getting in the kitchen helps me with my anxiety of taking tests left and right. I will be posting some of these recipe shortly so make sure you stay tuned.
Until then, I hope you like this simple Banana strawberry smoothie.

I really should make smoothies more often, especially during the summer months. You have the perfect flavour combination here :)
Cute pictures of your kids. It’s nice to be able to serve them something as delicious and healthy as this when they work up a summertime hunger.
Strawberry and banana is such a perfect flavor combo! We’d love these for breakfast or a snack! Delicious!
My favorite smoothie — strawberry and banana!!! Great for anytime
3 ingredients? I would have my kids make these for themselves :-)
How did you know I made this for breakfast yesterday?! Ha! I need to make these into popsicles though – great idea!
It sounds as though you had a great weekend with your kids! I’m sure it’s tough to be away from them, but probably makes your moments together that much sweeter. We are strawberry lovers here and I know my family would love this smoothie.
Can u put this in a bottle for lunch then shake it before you drink it
