Strawberry banana smoothie have always been a favorite of mine. I remember when I was little, I often would make breakfast for my family and then a BIG smoothie for all of us to share. Yes, I did add a ton of sugar, I didn’t know much about health back then. These days I don’t really do too many fruit smoothie. Green smoothies has pretty much taken over my blender but occasionally I will enjoy a fruit smoothie and often use this simple strawberry banana smoothie recipe to fill that sweet strawberry banana craving.
Simple Sweet Banana Smoothie Recipe
It’s very simple with only 5 ingredients and less than 5 minutes to make. I like to use frozen strawberries so that it’s nice and cool, perfect for the summer or when we are wanting something refreshing to drink. I also like to put pears in the smoothie as it adds to the natural sweetness and makes it more filling and smooth.
The hemp seeds in this smoothie make it a more protein packed smoothie that will help keep you full and energized. I hope you like it as much as we do. My kiddos especially are BIG fans of this one :)
