Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Whip up a healthy strawberry banana smoothie with this easy recipe:


  • 1 cup fresh strawberries (you can also substitute frozen strawberries for a thicker consistency)
  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1/2 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup ice


Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until it is at the right consistency. Serve immediately.
