This is probably one of the most flavorful smoothies I've ever had.... The Strawberry Banana Smoothie. The flavor is fantastic and the color is really attractive! If you're a fruit smoothie fan - I dare you to try this ;-)
You start off with your three fruits: Kiwi, Strawberries, and a Banana (nanner not pictured!!) and you'll add some apple juice and strawberry yogurt to it. We only had strawberry/banana yogurt - but why not, all the better! =)
First you cut up (I quartered them) a full cup of strawberries. The originally recipe called for frozen ones, but I couldn't find any - and fresh worked just fine. I think I would prefer it! (You can save back one for garnish on the glass, too - you know, just to make it look pretty!)
Then slice one kiwi - No need to cut it smaller than your slices! (Save 1/2 a slice back for garnish if you'd like!) You know... I was having a heck of a time not devouring the fruit as I cut it up. I spent so much dang time trying to get the fuzz of the kiwi as not to cut off any of the precious flesh of the fruit. I LOVE Kiwi!!!!
Stick it in the blender... And don't forget your banana as I almost did..... But doesn't this just look amazing by its self. Ahhhhhhhh.
And add 1/4 Cup of apple juice..... (excuse the piggy spatula.... I used it to scrape out every bit of the yogurt :D)
After you add all the ingredients PLEASE PUT THE LID ON THE BLENDER (important!) and blend until smooth... only about 10-15 seconds!
Add any garnish you would like to the glass, stick in a straw and enjoy your wonderful smoothie!!! I think it makes about 2 servings, as I had to stick some in my fridge! But heck, it's so good - you'll go back for the rest!!!!
