Try a special treat that’s full of nutrients and ultra thick and yummy. This strawberry banana smoothie recipe is perfect for breakfast, dessert, or a post-workout snack. It is packed with fresh berries and bananas, so all of the sweetness comes from fresh fruit. With plenty of vitamins and nutrients, healthy smoothies are a great meal replacement option or a treat when you get a craving for something sweet.
Smoothie recipes are extremely flexible. Mixing fruit with other ingredients often overpowers the less appealing taste of vegetables, protein, and other add-ins. This makes smoothies a great option for getting vegetables into kids and adults who tend to shy away from the somewhat bitter taste of raw veggies. Blend up some spinach or kale with a few apples and berries and you would never know you are downing several servings of raw leafy greens. Imagine that – raw veggies actually tasting like dessert! It’s a dream come true for moms and dieters alike.
