Banana Strawberry Smoothie: Double Thick Strawberry Banana Shake

This banana strawberry smoothie is a long time favorite.

I either use frozen bananas and fresh strawberries, or unfrozen bananas and frozen strawberries.

With frozen bananas it makes a very thick ice cream like consistency, and with unfrozen bananas and frozen strawberries it is more like a drinking yogurt consistency, (and actually tastes very much like a strawberry flavored drinking yogurt that I used to drink back in the day).

Banana Strawberry Smoothie: Ingredients:

250g Strawberries
6x bananas (peeled and pre-frozen)
5x fresh dates

Banana Strawberry Smoothie: Method:

Blend the strawberries and dates in your blender first. Do not add any water. Then slowly add your frozen bananas and blend in gradually until all six have been blended.

Serves 1-2

If you wanted to serve this as ice-cream, just add a couple more frozen bananas and serve in bowls with strawberry sauce (blended strawberries) and some sliced banana.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

This strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe is deliciously fruit smoothie recipes just like a strawberry drinking yogurt, though all it contains is 100% fresh fruit!

Before I started becoming a vegan I was a big fan of yogurt. I usually ate yogurt every day, and I LOVED those cartons of drinking yogurt.

So this was something I missed when I went dairy free (though of course I did NOT miss the allergies and the sinus congestion!).

So imagine my delight when I discovered that this easy strawberry smoothie recipe tastes exactly like strawberry flavored yogurt!

While strawberries are used in this recipe, you can use any kind of frozen berries and you will get the same drinking yogurt effect. It is wonderful, you’ve got to try it!
