Great smoothie! I froze my bananna first and left out the banana extract - I don't have any. I used skim milk and also added in some strawberries along with the strawberry yogurt to heighten the strawberry flavor. To make this a little extra frosty I threw in a little ice. Definitely a nice creamy treat!
First things first... When I want a smootie, I expect one thing.... For it to be cold. Not room temperature. Second of all, there isn't enough strawberry flavor. I found the banana extract was highly unecessary and drowned out what little strawberry taste there actually was. To fix this, I sliced up about a half of cup of strawberries, a cup of crushed ice, 1 tsp Vanilla extract, and about 1/2 cup of plain non-fat yogurt. Once I was through with it, it was edible.
As you can see from my name, I love smoothies! This one was to die for! I didn't have quite enough yogurt to make 2 batches so I did 1 1/2 batches and it was plenty for 2! I added ice to make it colder a little thicker, but that was all that I changed. THis was great!
Good Smoothie. I did change a few things though -- I didn't have banana extract so I used strawberry extract instead with an extra large banana. Also, I omitted the sugar. Still tasted yummy and a good healthy breakfast drink!
This was my first attempt ever at making a smoothie, and this was the PERFECT recipe! The only problem was I didn't have any banana extract so I just used two bananas. I also followed the suggestion of another reviewer and added ice, but at 1 1/2 cups. I also left out the sugar as it was plenty sweet enough. Even the non-banana people in my house RAVED about this recipe! Thanks so much!
I really love this! I added about a cup of ice. I really loved the creamy consistency, and the yogurt added strawberry flavor without pesky seeds in every swallow!
This was good. I used FF Milk. I didn't have any banana extract so I used a lg banana.
Strawberries and banana together are a natural, so I knew I'd like this. Didn't have banana extract and I don't know that I would have included it if I did. I added 1/2 tsp. of vanilla instead. I used Greek-style strawberry yogurt and replaced the white sugar with Splenda. I also threw in a handful of fresh strawberries. Because I wanted it super cold, I chilled the banana for awhile, reduced the amount of milk a little and added ice cubes.
