Banana And Strawberry Smoothie





Recently, I've been eating very healthy and have rediscovered my passion for making smoothies! I became obsessed with making them a few years ago after discovering a little gem of a cafe in Llandudno  where they made fresh smoothies from a vast menu of deliciousness! 
Unfortunately for me, a while ago they closed down....Very sad times indeed. But by then, I had bought a very high tech smoothie maker and had experimented with lots and lots of ingredients to create some of my favourite smoothies!


For this particular recipe you will need:

1 very large banana
half a box of strawberries (roughly 8-10 of them)
dash of apple juice
ice


First of all, you'll need to peel your banana and chop it up, same with your strawberries; chop them up and place in a smoothie maker or blender. 
I like to make sure all the fruit is covered in apple juice, this is how I know I have used enough juice, if you prefer yours slightly thicker, or thinner, add more or less.
Blend all your ingredients together until smooth and serve over ice.


Tips

A fantastic and easy way to keep fruit is to freeze them. Frozen fruits make amazing smoothies too!
I fill a plastic container with enough fruits for one serving, and leave them out to slightly defrost just before blending! This way, you don't need to use any ice either, and your bananas won't have turned brown after a week! Perfect!


I'll be posting more smoothie recipes up very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
I hope you're having a very lovely week!
