Yesterday I headed over to my parents house for a little TLC. My mum has been working on growing her own fruit & vegetables for years. She took me on a little tour and showed me all of her hard work & i have to say, it looked beautiful. We don't really have the garden space at my house but one day i'd love to follow in her footsteps. We picked some ripe strawberries and I thought straight away "Smoothie!".
Here's how to make the best Strawberry & Banana Smothie from fresh.
I told you they were good. Juicy juicy juicy.
Chop up your ingredients. I bought the banana's which were just ripening. Who wants fruit and veg that will last just a day right? I always use one banana, one cup of milk and a handful of strawberries.
Throw all of your ingredients into the blender.
I put it on the highest function for around 3-5 minutes to make sure the fruit really blends into a fine texture. Lumpy smoothies are the worst.
So, you should have your finished result. With this batch it looked very thick so i just added a splash of milk to thin the consistency and ta da!
Recycle your old pots, bottled water, fruit juice bottles. They are so handy to have around, i literally use them for everything from pancake mix to pasta sauces.
