Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Some of the best things in life are healthy - like this smoothie.  I like my smoothies simple so just go for fruit and yoghurt with a bit of sugar to sweeten the yoghurt, which is needed here as the plain yoghurt here is unsweetened.

All you need is for about 4 large glasses:

  • About 2 pints/a litre of natural low fat yoghurt
  • 3 banana's broken into bits.
  • About a pound of strawberries.
  • Sugar to taste (or sweetening if you can deal with the artificial taste it adds)
Use a kitchen machine or blender to make this. Just put all the ingredients into the machine and turn it on till smooth.

I had a couple of raspberries that needed using up so I threw them in as well - any soft fruit will do really - apples will give a chunkier result unless you finely grate them first.


  1. Add a table spoon or two of peanut butter to your ingredients to make that smoothie even more delicious. Peanut butter works extremely well with bananas, and you get the benefits of extra protein and fiber out of it as well!
