Sometimes you just want something different to start your day and a smoothie can fit the bill. Fresh strawberry and banana are two of my favorite flavors combined into a creamy smoothie. It makes a filling breakfast or an easy after-school snack full of protein and calcium from the milk and yogurt.
You could also use frozen whole strawberries or bananas in this smoothie. If you want a richer flavor, try French vanilla yogurt in place of vanilla yogurt. If the smoothie seems too tart, try adding a teaspoon of sugar and blending again. Another idea is to substitute orange juice instead of milk for a new flavor combination.
This strawberry banana smoothie recipe makes enough for 4 servings. If you have any leftovers, just refrigerate the blender container and give it a quick whir the next morning and it will taste as fresh as the first time.

You’re not alone!
