I LOVE strawberry-banana smoothies, but I could never get the right proportions when making it at home. These are the right proportions. Like everyone else, I blend the oats first to get them to a powdery consistency. I find it plenty sweet on its own, and don't use the sugar or vanilla extract (I did at first). The recipe is for 2 servings, but I'm the only one drinking it so I cut it in half. I use about 2/3 of a banana for each serving, and I freeze them in individual portions so I don't always have to keep bananas on hand. BUT they MUST be defrosted when you're blending, otherwise it will take forever. Usually I defrost them overnight, or for a few hours in the morning. They don't look too appealing when defrosted but I freeze them when they're ripe and they're going in a smoothie anyway, so who cares. I buy a big bag of frozen strawberries from the store and find it to be way less work than freezing my own. Great recipe!
