Breakfast Smoothie Recipes: Strawberry-Banana Smoothie

strawberry banana smoothie | @kitchenability

Fresh, fruity smoothies are a great way to treat yourself without a ton of calories or added sugar. They’re also a great summertime breakfast—no hot cooking necessary!

I like using strawberries and bananas because strawberries give you antioxidants and bananas give you potassium. But you can follow the general recipe below using any fruit you like!

Note: This recipe appears in my cookbook, Kitchenability 101, and was originally posted online on my blog at Parade Magazine.
