Strawberry banana smoothie

Are you searching for a convenient and swift solution to utilize those overly ripe bananas before they go to waste? As summer approaches, the strawberry banana smoothie is the perfect choice to turn those overripe bananas into a refreshing, light, and healthy snack. Depending on your taste and dietary preferences, you can opt to sweeten the smoothie or keep it natural: for instance, I’ve added half a teaspoon of maple syrup, but it could easily be omitted as the banana provides natural sweetness. Likewise, you have the option of using either whole or low-fat yogurt for a lighter version. Ready in just a few minutes and requiring nothing more than a blender to tidy up, the strawberry banana smoothie is a delicious and refreshing drink, perfect for satisfying hunger and tackling hot summer days!

To prepare the strawberry banana smoothie, start by peeling the banana. Remove any dark spots and slice it into rounds.
Wash and dry the strawberries, remove the stems, and cut them into pieces.

Place the bananas, strawberries, and yogurt in a blender – either a classic blender or a mixer – and add maple syrup if desired.

Blend for about a minute until you get a smooth and homogeneous mixture.

Serve the strawberry banana smoothie immediately. With these measurements, you’ll get approximately 280 grams of smoothie, enough for one or two people.

How to store

You can store the strawberry banana smoothie in the refrigerator for a couple of days, but it’s best to consume it freshly made to preserve the vitamins in the strawberries.

Tips and variations

Instead of strawberries, you can use your favorite seasonal fruits: peaches, apricots, blueberries, raspberries, melon… If you want, you can enhance the flavor of the smoothie by using a fruit-flavored yogurt.
