bananas, frozen and chunked
This was a very tasty smoothie. When you freeze the bananas make sure you cut them up first because, as i found out, it is very difficult to peel a frozen banana. I used light yogurt and it turned out very well.
Meh. Nothing special. Just a plain 'ol smoothie, nothing more. My blender recently broke. Today, my fiance bought me a new KitchenAid one (whoo hoo!). I just HAD to try it out! I didn't hate this, but I certainly have had better. For one, I couldn't detect the chocolate - at ALL!. I was really hoping for a chocolate-covered strawberry flavor, but all I could taste was banana. Perhaps my banana was too large (in my defense, this recipe doesn't specify whether it should be large, medium or small...)??? I DO like the creaminess the banana and yogurt gave this tho. And, after adding another good squirt more of chocolate syrup (swirled into my smoothie), I got more of the effect I was looking for. If you are wanting the chocolate flavor to come thru, I think you could substitute chocolate yogurt for plain (I used vanilla as it's all I had on hand). From now on, I'm going to stick with strawberry oatmeal breakfast smoothie (ASTROPHE). It fills me up more and is much healthier to boot (it contains oatmeal for nutrition / filler, genius IMHO). I'd rather not waste calories on chocolate that I can't even taste anyways! NOTE: If you freeze your fruit (unpeel your bananas!!!), your smoothie will be extra thick and very cold! Thanks for sharing your idea, AHMOM. :)
This smoothie is absolutely DELICIOUS! Since I really got on a "smoothie kick" this year, I decided to fix different ones for my parents while we were visiting. This recipe was definitely a favorite with everyone. Even my husband, who would never try any of the different smoothies I fixed, decided to try this one and he even liked it. Have made it several times. I used lowfat vanilla yogurt instead of plain. Thanks for sharing.
This made a great breakfast for me. I used frozen strawberries, one non frozen banana, fat free yogurt a package of sugar free Instant Breakfast instead of the syrup and a splash of milk to thin it a bit. So good and thanks Cindy!
I wanted to just add a quick comment about freezing bananas. I use to make smoothies all the time and if you peel the banana FIRST, then freeze it wrapped in saran wrap it works great!
I've tried about 5 other Strawberry-Banana smoothie combo in Allrecipes, and this by far tops the list. I made a few changes based on what I had on hand. I use fresh bananas, and low fat vanilla yogurt. The kids love it! They practically beg me to make this every single day. I can't get them to eat fresh strawberries, but this works much better!
Thank you for sharing this recipe!
My daughter loved this. I changed it by using a non-frozen banana, fresh strawberries, non-fat vanilla yogurt, s little skim milk, and a serving of Olvotine instead of the syrup. It was great! Thanks for the base recipe!
My daughter enjoyed, used frozen strawberries and frozen banana. Added more choco. syrup and used 1% milk instead of yogurt since it was all I had. Not too sweet, but yummy.
