Strawberry Banana Smoothie


Oh, there are some things that need no introduction, no stories, nothing. It is so simple and elegant. Just one thing- it is so soooo good!



Just another thing: This will be so lovely on Valentine's day morning. Right? Lovely pink color with the heart shaped strawberry slice at the edge of the cup. #Romantic


Oh! and another thing: You can even make a milkshake with this. Just swap the milk with some vanilla ice-cream!



And one final thing (I promise, it's the last thing, next is the recipe): This is dairy free- as I used almond milk. But go with the regular milk if you are ok with it.

So, here's what you need (Serves 2):

1 ripe banana

1 cup of strawberry syrup  OR 10-12 large strawberries and 2 tablespoon sugar

½ cup almond milk (You may use rice milk or regular milk- keep in mind the rice milk is much thinner in consistency than almond milk, so add according to your desired consistency)

1-2 drops of vanilla extract

How:

Put the banana in the blender and blend it. It will be like a cream (This prevents the banana to be chunky in your smoothie). Then add all the other ingredients and blend to a smooth consistency. Add more sugar if you like you like your smoothie to be more sweet. It also depends on how ripe your strawberries are. Also add more milk if you would ike a thinner smothie. Chill and enjoy it with some chocolate shavings on top. I don't mind a little chocolate in the morning. What do you say?
