Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie


The worst thing about my "good intentions" of buying spinach is the fact that after one salad, I forget about the remaining spinach in the fridge until it goes limp and slimy. Please tell me that it's not only me.

But with this smoothie, I think I can say goodbye to my slimy spinach problem, and hello to some good-for-you smoothies. Also, any recipe that can use up my one ripe banana is a winner for me. Am I right guys? Bon appetit!

  2. Cathleen, I admit that it does not look very appetising at all LOL! But I am sure it tastes good what with bananas, strawberries and vanilla yogurt!

    1. Haha, looks can be totally deceiving! My boyfriend was skeptical at first, but he downed the whole smoothie and asked for seconds!

  8. Mmmm this sounds so refreshing :D
    I am the same when it comes to spinach - I buy it for one purpose only and am stuck with loads after! But now I know to either buy frozen spinach, OR make Algerian Silk.....But I really wanna try out this smoothie now, I love the Spring-like colour to it :D x

  9. Ugh slimy spinach happened a lot to me too until I decided on buying frozen spinach instead. That doesn't help much if you want it for salads though haha

    Anyway this smoothie sounds great. I love green smoothies!

  10. I have the same bag of spinach dilemma! I've actually started buying frozen spinach but sometimes you just need fresh spinach for flavour and appearance and I always find some of it left in my fridge :-( Anyway, this is a great and healthy way to use it up! Looks delicious :-)
