Hello Friends! Is anybody getting a bit tired of all the cleaning we are doing? I honestly think I went through half a roll of paper towels just cleaning up our house today!
In an effort to help simplify things, today’s recipe is an easy one when you are looking for a quick breakfast or snack idea that can be ready in minutes. I like to enjoy it as a little healthy reward after a morning of meal planning and cleaning.
Today’s recipe is a wonderful simple fruit smoothie or snack idea, that is perfect for any day. It is cool and refreshing and so delicious. You can change up the fruits and make it different every time!

List of main ingredients for this recipe
Strawberries– Fresh is always best, but if they are not available you can use frozen strawberries too. Fresh strawberries should be firm, plump, free of dark discoloring.
Bananas – You can use fresh bananas or those that are a few days old for this recipe. You can also use frozen bananas.
Ice – It is best to use crushed ice for this recipe, but cubes work too. The ice helps to chill the smoothie and adds a frosty texture.
Variations on this recipe:
You can add ¼ cup of almond milk or any milk to this recipe in place of the water. You could also add yogurt if desired.

It looks sooo good. And refreshing. I wonder what we'd use.. probably milk or not at all. I'm sure the banana is plenty creamy. YUM.
