Berry Banana

Strawberries and bananas are a natural combination of flavors…by far, a favorite blend in the green smoothie world.  Green Smoothies are a terrific way to start your day or as a quick and easy lunch.  They provide a powerhouse of nutrition and clean energy with no overt fats.  Include at least one per day to boost your health and promote weight loss.  PS – they taste great too 🙂

Ingredients:

3-4 ripe bananas, depending on size

2 handfuls dark leafy greens

3 cups strawberries

Water and ice

Directions:

Fill blender with water and ice first.  I usually start with 2 cups; adjust according to desired thickness.

Add bananas, then leafy greens. Pack them down to make room for the strawberries.

Blend until smooth and creamy.

 

Notes:  Be sure the bananas are ripe – they should have little brown freckles.  You can freeze your bananas once they are ripe.  If you use frozen bananas and/or frozen fruit, omit the ice and add more water as needed.  Frozen fruit is a great time saver.  For the dark leafy greens, try baby spinach, kale, or a mixture.  I use a Power Greens mix that contains spinach, kale and chard.  Always choose organic for the greens.
