Simple Strawberry and Banana Smoothie

I love smoothies. They're filling, super healthy and not to mention delicious. After years of buying them from juice bars on my way to work, I decided to start making them myself. This simple recipe is one of my favourites - it's perfect for a refreshing summer breakfast or post-workout treat.

You will need: 1 frozen banana // handful of large fresh strawberries // 200ml of fresh orange juice // 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional) // a generous dollop of organic runny honey // handful of ice cubes

Simply mix all the ingredients together in a blender before pouring in to a tall glass. You can substitute the orange for another breakfast juice if you wish; apple works great and pineapple is delicious too.

I've been getting lots of use out of my blender recently now the sun's finally out, so expect more smoothie recipes throughout summer! If you have any of your own please don't hesitate to share, I'd love to try them.


  1. Oh great recipe - I need to give this a go. I just love smoothies - I like the addition of ice, not sure why I hadn't thought of that before!
