Strawberry & Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are always a big hit with my kids in the summer time (or indeed any chance they get) and they’re a great way of getting children to eat fruit, without them actually realising!

They always ask for one when we’re out shopping if we pass a smoothie bar, but they can work out expensive when you’re buying for a couple of kids. This Strawberry and Banana smoothie is the formula I use to mix up our own smoothies at home – for a fraction of the cost in the shops! You can use any fruit you like, it’s just what my kids prefer. It’s so quick and easy (it only takes a couple of minutes to prepare), the only tool you’ll need is a blender or food processor.


What you need:

3-4 small/medium bananas

150g strawberries (approx half a punnet)

300ml orange juice

250g (approx 1/2 pot) low fat natural yogurt

1-2 tsp runny honey (optional)


Place all your ingredients into a blender/food processor.

Blend on a high speed until smooth.

Pour, serve and enjoy!

Couldn’t be easier!
