Strawberry banana smoothie is an easy and simple smoothie. We need few ingredients as well to make this healthy filling breakfast smoothie. I have added this smoothie to my lazy vegan recipes, since this is really quick and easy for your workdays breakfast.
Strawberry is a seasonal fruit and plentily available in cold in India (from October till January) and from April top June in the USA. June is the peak season for sweet strawberries there. It's highly perishable fruit. So better to consume them fresh.
However you can also refrigerate the strawberries for few days, but the quicker you eat them or use them the better these are in taste. I make my strawberry compote which I make often in season. Strawberry limeade is too good in summers.
The smoothie is really delish when made with fresh pulpy strawberries. However, you can enjoy the smoothies in other seasons as well with dried berries. But I love it more when made with fresh strawberries.
Adding banana to the red sweet tangy strawberries makes the smoothie more delicious and rich.
