Whatever you do, no matter what crazy smoothie recipes you create, basics remain the same! The good old Strawberry Banana fusion smoothie has been around for so long before even « smoothies » were a thing. So, let’s take a moment to reminisce about old times and bring back the marvelous taste that these two fruits create when merged together.
Strawberries are great antioxidants, a great source of fiber and vitamin C. They improve your immune system, regulate blood sugar, lower blood pressure and promote healthy eyesight. They have so many benefits I can’t mention them all here.
As for bananas, they’re a great source of potassium, contain powerful antioxidants as well and improve your general health.
So what do you get from combining these two strong components? Surely not something to take for granted.
Now, there are many recipes out there that combine these two iconic fruits, but if you want the basic recipe upon which you can build more « floors », follow through these simple steps, I guarantee it won’t take you more than 5 min.
As goes the rule with all smoothies, frozen fruits work best. So, it’s preferable that you freeze your strawberries beforehand. This allows for a thicker consistency and a more refreshing taste. Alternatively, you could add a handful of ice cubes to thicken your mixture and give it more of a slushy feel to it.
Now that your base fruit is ready, you can proceed to gather the rest of the ingredients, which include :
Add a sweetener (optional): although I believe bananas are enough to sweeten your smoothie, some people just need that extra sugar. If you’re one of them, be sure to add a spoonful of honey to sweeten it up and there you go! Your smoothie is all ready to serve and enjoy.
