Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Hope you are all enjoying the warmth of Spring.  It's beautiful out here.  Trees in full bloom, birds busy making nests and laying eggs, its a wonderful time of the year to watch and engage in the life around.  Wherever I turn I feel and see new life ! Kids are happy playing in the lush green lawn and my younger one is getting a chance to spent all that pent up energy.  After our play in the yard a glass of fresh smoothie is just the thing to add to the zing.  I am sure most of you know how to make this.  This is a gentle reminder to you in case you forgot how tasty a strawberry smoothie can be on a Wednesday afternoon.



Ingredients:

Strawberries- 10-12
Banana- one medium size
Sugar
Ice cubes-3-4
Milk/Strawberry banana yogurt- 1 cup

Method:

1.Clean and hull the strawberries
2.Peel off the skin from banana and cut into big chunks
3.Throw in these with other ingredients in a blender and blend until they become smooth.


Notes:

1.You could add a scoop of vanilla/strawberry ice cream to make it more rich.
2.If you are using over ripened banana, you may not have to add one full banana.
