Banana In My Straw Smoothie

This is another one of my absolute favourite smoothies. So, on this thirsty Thursday I’m sharing it with you.

I like to use frozen organic strawberries as I prefer the texture and love the sweetness they have over fresh strawberries in a smoothie. The banana gives it that thick creamy texture. I usually use fresh banana’s but when I remember to freeze a banana (chop it up first then freeze) it tastes amazing. It’s just like a thick shake!

Of course, you can also add probiotics or other supplements to it, or, have it as is.

In summer, well in truth anytime, I also like to put this smoothie into ice block moulds or ice cube trays and freeze particularly in summer. It also carries well in a bottle or mason jar to drink later.
