Strawberry Banana Smoothie

This Strawberry Banana Smoothie recipe is a 2 minute easy breakfast you can feel good about. Instead of grabbing a preservative filled, hot pink yogurt by Yoplait, Dannon, Activia make your own! It is as easy as one, two three!

You know what is in it and you can control the sugar better, plus fresh strawberries and bananas are a great way to start the day. Strawberries are full of antioxidants to help guard you from that nasty cold going around the office and bananas are full of Potassium for strong muscles.

Visit your local Farmer’s Market, it is a great place to pick up fresh fruits and veggies, and wonderful organic jams like the strawberry jam I use in this recipe. Plus you are supporting your local economy! I like to bring my toddler and teach her the different names of the fruits and veggies, count them, name the colors, she also loves the samples and I don’t have to worry about fixing her an afternoon snack. Education and food, yes please!
