Among all of the smoothie flavor options, few can beat a strawberry banana smoothie. The two fruits are natural companions and this smoothie recipe keeps things simple in order to showcase their sweet taste. It's quick, healthy, and energizing, and makes a yummy breakfast drink or afternoon snack.

While it is easy, the trick to a great-tasting strawberry banana smoothie is to use frozen strawberries (you can use frozen banana slices, too). Frozen fruit eliminates the need for ice, so the smoothie is thick and creamy but also ice-cold and refreshing. Additionally, fresh strawberries don't last long in the typical grocer packaging, and freezing them preserves their fresh taste. Slice them up and in as little as an hour in the freezer, they'll be ready for your smoothie. Many grocery stores also sell sliced strawberries in the freezer case.

This smoothie recipe uses vanilla almond milk for a delicious background flavor and a bit of honey for extra sweetness. It's a basic mix that you can build on with other ingredients that you have on hand. From ginger to chia seeds, even a scoop of yogurt, there are many ways to play with this nutritious drink.
