small handful of cashew nuts

Quick ‘n Easy Strawberry and Banana Smoothie

TRH Strawberry banana chia smoothie  Tried Tested

Delicious smoothie that is quick and easy to make. I use fresh fruit and freeze it the day before. Make sure to peel your banana prior to putting it into the freezer. This smoothie is good for breakfast or right before working out. This recipe is great to get the kids involved.

1 frozen banana
6 or 7 frozen strawberries
1 cup low fat or fat free vanilla Greek yogurt
1 tsp. pure maple syrup
1/2 cup milk, of your choice (rice, soy, almond)
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Poor into cups. You can top it with a little whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate or caramel syrup. Yummy. Enjoy.

My adapted version:
I used vanilla soy milk, and added 15-20ml chia seeds and let it sit overnight to swell out (did not use frozen fruit). I always add and prefer extra i.e, chia or flax seeds, whole psyllium husk or goji berries and even sometimes add protein powder with my smoothies. I have a smoothie for breakfast every morning at work as its so easy to prepare the previous night and then I am all set and ready to go!
