Hello Kitchen Lovers, we’d like to share with you this amazing recipe, just in time for this weekend, enjoy a sweet and creamy, with fresh strawberry banana flavor smoothie.

A strawberry and banana smoothie is good for you because strawberries are rich in fiber, vitamins and antioxidants. ¿Did you know one serving of strawberries (about 8 berries) contains more vitamin C than an orange?, yes we are shocked too.


On the other hand, bananas are also a good source of fiber, potassium and magnesium. Your body digests the sugar in a banana more slowly than refined sugars, so you get lasting energy, rather than a sugar rush and crash. Naturally-sweet bananas are a healthy way to satisfy your craving for sugar. When you’re craving a sweet frozen treat, this strawberry banana smoothie is a delicious option!

This smoothie couldn’t be simpler: just whirl together five superfoods in a blender with ice cubes to create a balanced breakfast with loads of protein, fiber and phytochemicals. You’ll have great energy and nutrition before you even leave for work.


Ingredients:


• 2 cups cranberry juice
• 2 cups plain nonfat yogurt
• 2 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
• 1/2 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
• 1/4 cup whole natural almonds
• 1 cup ice cubes


Directions:


In a blender, combine the cranberry juice, yogurt, bananas, strawberries, almonds and ice cubes, and puree until smooth and frothy. Pour into glasses and serve.

 

Serves 4.
