    Anyone else trying to eat a little better this year? I definitely ate my fair share of holiday treats, so now that the holidays are over, I’m trying to not eat as many desserts. Smoothies have been my go to when I’m craving something sweet! We make all different combinations, but this strawberry banana flavor combo is one of my favorites and a true classic.

    You’ll love this smoothie because it is thick, creamy and refreshing! It makes a great breakfast, afternoon snack or midnight dessert!

    For this strawberry smoothie I used the DOLE Sliced strawberries. I always keep a bag in my freezer because they are super convenient. I love using these in my smoothies, because they blend up so easily. They’re also naturally very sweet and taste so refreshing. DOLE Sliced Strawberries are hand-picked to ensure you are getting only the finest quality fruit available. They’re also an excellent source of Vitamin C.

    How to make a strawberry banana smoothie

    To get started you’ll want to gather all of your ingredients. For this recipe I use a milk base, frozen strawberries, a banana, ground flaxseed and honey. All you need to do is pour it in a blender and then mix until smooth. If you want a thicker smoothie, use a frozen banana. It will taste more like a shake. ;)

    This recipe is really easy to customize. If you want to add some green, feel free to add a cup of spinach (note it will change the color). If you need a little more protein, add in a scoop of protein powder. You can also substitute the milk with almond milk or greek yogurt.

    This smoothie makes enough for my 3 kids and I, however it would probably only serve 2 adults. If you’re wanting to double the recipe, I would make one batch and then the other after. If you add too much frozen fruit to the blender, I find it doesn’t blend as well. 2-3 cups seems to be the perfect amount.
