Fruity Strawberry Smoothie

>> Thursday, September 1, 2011

Last week, I posted my favorite simple strawberry smoothie recipe. Just strawberries, almond milk, Greek yogurt, and banana. But -- rightly so -- some readers have commented that our smoothies tend to be on the heavier side.

Yeah. I find myself tossing in peanut butter, oats, Greek yogurt, and other hefty ingredients more often than not. Guilty!

When I'm feeling light and fruity, I like to whip up this version.


What you'll need . . .
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3/4 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water (depending on how thick/thin you like your smoothies)

Method . . .
  1. Toss everything into a blender and blend. 
  2. For best results, use frozen bananas. Seriously. It makes a HUGE difference!
I'd say most days I do a thicker, creamier smoothie for breakfast when I'm looking to fill myself up for the day. Makes sense, right? But in the afternoon if I'm just looking for a healthy, refreshing snack, an all-fruit smoothie is totally where it's at.

Now I have to run. We're celebrating our anniversary tonight. Well, sort of. I'm exhausted (as per usual) after work. So, we indulged in some of our favorite Wegmans ingredients to make THE LOVER. We're going to watch a movie. And then this weekend we'll do the whole dinner/movie and possibly mini-golf thing.

Enjoy your night. Thursdays are my favorite!
