I love eating bananas. Every time I bought them, I´m not able to consume them that the skin became brown in appearance. Sometimes my eyes were bigger than my mouth. I didn´t like to throw them, so I was thinking of how to eat them not in a "normal" way. I did not want to make banana rolls again or fried bananas. I just wanted a change. You know what I mean, right?


After looking at the bananas in front of me, I thought about the hungry children somewhere around the world. They would be happy to eat these overripe brown skin, getting old bananas. I went to the kitchen and inspected what I had without cooking again. Bingo! Everything is there.


Here is the recipe.


Banana Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Ready in: 5 min
Yields: 3 to 4 persons

Things You Need

  • Blender
  • Chopping board
  • Sharp knife
  • Tablespoon
  • Glasses

Ingredients

  • 2 pieces bananas, ripe and cut into pieces
  • 10 pieces strawberries, frozen
  • 2 glasses orange juice, cold
  • 1 small, 150 gram yogurt, cold

How To Make Banana Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie

  1. Pour the 2 glasses of orange juice into the blender.
  2. Peel off the skin of the bananas. Cut the banana into desired pieces. Add them to the orange juice in the blender.
  3. Add the frozen strawberries to the other ingredients in the blender.
  4. Add the cold yoghurt. Put the lid on the blender . Blend the fruit mixture for a minute or until it´s good enough for your taste. Blending the fruit into low speed will give you a fruity smoothie.
  5. Wet the rim of a glass with water and dip it into a bowl of white sugar.
  6. Pour the banana strawberry yogurt smoothie into the prepared glass. Decorate it with a fresh strawberry if you have. Enjoy your smoothie!

Suggestions:

  1. You can use fresh strawberries if you like. In this case, you have to hull and wash the strawberries before using them in your smoothies. I used frozen strawberries because they have a soft consistency and besides that, I still have a lot from my last strawberry harvest.
  2. In this recipe, I used blood orange juice with vitamins ACE. You can use any kind of orange juices. You can use pineapple, apple, currant and any fruit juices you want to.
  3. You can decorate a glass of banana strawberry yogurt smoothie with sugar, fresh strawberries, a straw and a cute umbrella.
  4. You can use fruits which are in season or whatever you have in your pantry.
  5. You can add vanilla ice cream on top of this smoothie.
  6. You can use milk, soya milk or butter milk instead of yogurt.
  7. If you want to use tropical fruits like pineapples, ripe mangoes or jackfruits, you can buy the canned fruits from the Asian shops.

Yum. What is not to love about this??? And it is easy peasy too.

It is the middle of the night or I would rush out and get what I need to make this. It looks like a slushy milkshake without all of the unnecessary 'stuff' in ice cream (which is my greatest food weakness).

Thanks for sharing Bookmarked for later use.

I love smoothie, too. It´s healthy and easy to do. Strawberries are not always in season, so I thought I have to put a table full of fruit options. Young scraped coconut and coconut water are my options for strawberries and yogurt when I´m in my home country...It reminds me...I´ll put these ingredients in the option table, too.

Thanks for your wonderful comment Kathryn. Have a nice day!

Hi Suzie,

You are very welcome my dear friend. Of course you can link it to your fruit and yogurt recipes. I appreciate that. I´ll link yours to mine,too. I have just made another variation of this smoothie. Instead of strawberries, I added 200 g frozen red currants and only 1 banana but with 1 tbsp of honey. You can add more if you want it sweet. It´s yummy, too. Thanks for the votes, shared and pinned.
