Eating healthy is hard. But I’ve decided baby steps are the best option when trying to lose this baby weight.
I didn’t gain it overnight, so I won’t be losing it overnight, either. This quick strawberry kiwi smoothie is a great way for me to get in some fruit servings and the best part is, I can drink it on the go.
what banana’s work best for this recipe?
This is an option that is totally up to you. I will tell you, the more brown the bananas, the sweeter they are, because they have had more time to create those natural fruit sugars, in the banana.
I prefer to use medium bananas. I don’t like my bananas bright green, but I don’t like them with brown. I like them perfectly yellow.
This is because I prefer that taste as I eat them plain, but I have tried ripe bananas in this smoothie, and it was just as delicious.
I make my frozen banana’s ahead of time. Once they are too ripe for me to eat, I remove the peel, cut them into fourths, and place them in a large gallon, ziplock bag.
I then seal that bag, pushing all the air out, and put them in the freezer. They are ready to go in your smoothies about an hour or two later.
I usually don’t keep my banana’s in the freezer for more than four weeks, because then I feel like they start tasting like the freezer, and not like banana.
could i use fresh strawberries instead?
You could definitely use fresh strawberries in this recipe, rather than frozen strawberries. I actually prefer fresh over frozen because they have a much better flavor to them.
I don’t particularly love the taste of frozen fruit, but once it is blended up in a smoothie it taste fine. The fresher the fruit, the sweeter the smoothie you are going to have.
We put frozen fruit in the recipe, because it makes the smoothie a little more icy. However, I prefer taste, over icy-ness.
what yogurt do you recommend if i don’t like greek yogurt:
I love this recipe, because it is so versatile. If yo don’t like Greek yogurt, you could use any other yogurt.
If you can’t find a simple vanilla yogurt, you could also use a strawberry kiwi yogurt, or even a strawberry yogurt, and it would taste just as delicious.
