Today’s smoothie is absolutely gorgeous and equally delicious. It’s composed of only 2 fruits and neither of them are bananas.
While I love bananas and will probably put them in most of the smoothies I make until the end of time I’ve come to understand that some folks aren’t fond of bananas and some are even allergic to the lovely banana. sniff sniff
I’m happy to say this smoothie is banana-free. Even though it’s void of bananas this strawberry orange smoothie is incredibly creamy and smooth. Thank you strawberries!
A small pint of fresh farmers market strawberries and organic oranges make up this tasty treat. I added a little water to thin it out and ice to make it refreshingly cold. You can skip the ice if you use frozen strawberries.
I think it took less than 20 seconds to blend to perfection and I did it all in a Nutribullet personal blender cup (not the short one).
The red-orangey coral hue reminds me of the time I added too much tequila to someone’s tequila sunrise. That sun rose and set in a few seconds thanks to my accommodating hand.
This will make a lower calorie breakfast so if you’re prone to mid-morning hunger try adding a few tablespoons of old-fashioned oats and a teaspoon or two of chia flour. The extra fiber and minimal fats will help slow digestion and keep you fuller longer.
