Berry Banana Smoothie
A smoothie is a drink made out of blended fresh fruit; it can also contain ice, sweeteners such as honey or sugar, milk, ice cream and/or yoghurt. Similar to milkshake in consistency it is often referred to as its healthy variation. This type of drink started to come out during the 1930’s in the United States West Coast and it was initially based on Brazilian recipe. During those days the popular ones are the banana and pineapple smoothie variants. Then in mid-1960 there was resurgence in macrobiotic vegetarianism and smoothies became really popular as it was served in health food stores and restaurants and the rest was history.
For this recipe it won’t be as healthy as the original smoothie as I always use vanilla ice cream instead of yoghurt, but trust me this will make any bad day turn into good.
2 pcs banana, sliced or smashed
8 pcs strawberries, frozen
8 pcs raspberry, frozen
8 pcs ice cubes, crushed
1 cup vanilla ice cream (or yoghurt)
1 cup milk
- Place all ingredients in a blender then blend until smooth.
Pre, tinda namin yan sa dfc ha. Tropical, banana, berry banana, fejoa, apple mango etc…..paorder sarap nyan sa summer.
Ah, delicious! Would like to have some right now. 🙂
You should try freezing peeled ripe bananas in plastic wrap and putting them in the blender first (minus the plastic wrap of course) -gives the thick consistency of using ice cream but without the added calories. Also a great way to use up the really ripe bananas…
I will give that a shot, good idea
Great ideas, are always interesting and delicious.Thank you of you brilliant recipe
I could see this for breakfast! W/ vanilla icecream! 🙂
OMG I want to CHUG that glass!!!! I think I might have to go make a smoothie RIGHT NOW!
Mmmmm….ice cream for me too!!! 🙂
Can’t wait for the local strawberries to come in!
I didn’t know smoothies had Brazilian roots! I think its interesting how many different things people consider “smoothies,” its a difficult thing to pinpoint what it means.
Yuuum. I always like my milkshake in plain strawberry; but mixing in bananas isn’t bad either 😉
I am going to make this tomorrow after I buy ice cream or yogurt (maybe I should get yogurt huh…)! My kids will thank you (and me!). =)
Oh this is sooooooo perfect for the summer 😀
And in classic En Route style, susubukan namin dagdagan ito ng konting alcohol… 😛
This one I’m gonna try! If not today then definitely tomorrow.
I love smoothies!
That smoothie looks so good and refreshing!
Love smoothies 🙂 I always use frozen mango and pineapple, but it might be time to change it up a bit and give some strawberries a shot.
if only strawberry comes cheap in philippines.. this would be great for the summer
Yum. Bursting with berry goodness.
