How to Make a Strawberry Banana Smoothie

First things first! Gather all of your ingredients and let’s get blending! I love to use a mixture of fruits and vegetables to create a yummy flavor!

Ingredients

Frozen Strawberries
Fresh Banana
Strawberry Yogurt
Orange Juice
Fresh Baby Spinach
Honey (optional)
Fresh Strawberries for Garnish

Ingredient Substitution Ideas

If you need a few substitution ideas, you could try these:

-Use vanilla yogurt or strawberry banana yogurt. Greek yogurt or regular will do. I would recommend a flavored yogurt to make a sweeter smoothie.

-Incorporate Kale instead of Spinach. Either one tastes just fine!

-If you don’t have orange juice on hand, try using another flavor of juice. I wouldn’t recommend using water since the juice adds a lot of flavor.

To create a fun pink color for Valentine’s Day, I used frozen Strawberries! The spinach doesn’t change the color too much as long you add only a handful of leaves.

To make these smoothies, just pour all the ingredients into the blender and blend everything until the consistency is smooth. I love my Ninja blender because it blends up my smoothie really quickly! Normally I set the speed at 2 and my smoothie is done within 30-60 seconds.

To add a fun detail for Valentine’s Day, I cut Strawberries into a heart shapes and displayed them on the side of the glass.

To create a heart Strawberry, begin with a perfectly shaped Strawberry. Then cut a sliver off of the side, from top to bottom. Cut the Strawberry slice into a heart shape, make a slit in the bottom and place on the edge of your glass.
