-1 cup of strawberries
-1/2 cup of milk
-Wash the strawberries. Tear off or cut off the leafy stems. (These leaves are edible, but they do not add much in terms of flavor and I dislike how the stems rarely fully blend.) -Cut or break the banana into smaller chunks. -Place strawberries, banana chunks and milk into a blender and blend. -Enjoy
- There are countless ways to alter and build upon this simple recipe. Want a thicker smoothie? Add more banana and/or freeze the strawberries.
