Strawberry Banana smoothie

3 more days to go...send in your entries to 'Best Food I ever ate or Blogged about' event here. Winner get a wonderful cookbook by Raghavan Iyer.
Check out details here.



Summer surely is the best time to have smoothies and other cold drinks. But they are surely missed in our house during winter. For that reason, I made this last week.

Who can resist fresh fruit smoothies. They come with the whole package, fresh fruit, milk, yogurt and not to mention lots of sugar. Thats why I used splenda instead, to cut out the sugars and keep it healthy. But if you don't like splenda or any other artificial sweeteners, use sugar as needed.

I used only bananas and strawberries, but use any fruit to whip up some delicious fruit smoothies.
If you think you don't find good fresh fruit or they don't keep good for long at home, use frozen fresh fruit. Thats what they use in restuarants anyways! :)

And yaayyy its pink in color....Valentine's day is next Monday.
Make this for you and your sweetie as a drink!...Or for the kids for a fun drink on Valentine's day! I am sure you will have lots of fun!


Serves 4

Ingredients:

2 bananas
8-10 strawberries
2-3 spenda packets (add sugar as an alternative)
1 cup starwberry yogurt
1 cup milk
crushed or cubed ice

Method:

Add everything in a blender and blend.
Serve over crushed ice or cubed ice.
I used splenda, to cut down sugar, but you surely can add sugar instead of splenda.
Serve Chillied! Garnish with chopped starwberry if required!
Enjoy!!!
