Why make strawberry banana smoothies from a powdered mix when it is so easy to make your own? I don't add yogurt to this strawberry banana smoothie recipe, because the banana alone makes it plenty thick and creamy.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups frozen sliced or whole strawberries (or fresh strawberries)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1/2 cup ice (if using fresh strawberries instead of frozen)

Steps to Make It

  1. Place strawberries and banana in a blender, food processor or Vita-Mix Blender (compare prices). If using fresh strawberries in place of frozen, add ice at this point.

  2. Top with orange juice concentrate and soy milk.

  3. Puree until smooth.

If using a blender, you may have trouble pureeing the strawberries, especially if they are whole. Stop the blender. Remove it from its motor base. Remove the cover and use a spoon to push the strawberries down into the blades. Replace the cover, and puree until smooth.
