I’m on my smoothie making spree again. This time, I did strawberry banana and I have to say…it is pretty amazing! I made it once to make sure the recipe was the right flavor and consistency, and I have probably made it at least 2 more times in the past week! So, it’s a winner.
Like I said in my Mixed Berry Smoothie post, I use the NINJA, BLENDER/FOOD PROCESSOR, to make my smoothies. I had a blender, but I have found that the Ninja just blends everything better. In a blender, the blades are just at the bottom, but in a Ninja, the blades are all the way through the center of the pitcher. It’s quite fascinating can you tell? lol! Another thing I LOVE about the Ninja, and especially the set that I have linked, is that it comes with different size pitchers AND it includes a lid to go on it. So, when I’m in a rush, make a smoothie, don’t drink it all, I just pop the top on the pitcher and stick it in the fridge!! It’s amazing! (At least in my world this is amazing!) I have added a picture of the Ninja that I purchased, at the end of this post.
Here is the recipe and I, of course altered the original recipe, because that's what I do!!! The original recipe calls for vanilla yogurt, and I used strawberry yogurt. I wanted more strawberry and less banana taste, because, in case you didn’t know already, I DON’T LIKE BANANAS!!!!
Also, if you notice that little stainless steel straw in the smoothie below? I. LOVE. THOSE. THINGS. They have a wider mouth (which is better for drinking smoothies and milkshakes) AND they keep it so cold. I bought them here, and I will put the pic and link at the end of this post. We use them for everything because they are awesome!
