Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

Cape Cod frozen strawberries
Frozen strawberries.

This strawberry banana smoothie recipe uses wonderful fresh fruit and freshly frozen strawberries. I think of it as a recipe that helps any kitchen maintain its efficiency – we only use the exact number of strawberries required, so the rest stay chilled, and because it calls for “very ripe” bananas. If a banana isn’t bad, but its something my grandson might not eat, I can make this smoothie and he dives right in.

While I love the richness of the full cream version of this recipe, I also enjoy the yogurt version as a healthy variation. Depending on the type of yogurt you use, it can add quite a zing to the flavor. I use full fat Greek yogurt for a rich and creamy smoothie. By choosing a yogurt without the extra sugars you find in the low fat options it allows me to choose exactly how much sugar goes into the breakfast smoothie.

Speaking of sugar, another hint is that we sometimes use brown sugar instead of white cane sugar here. Brown sugar has a higher perceived sweetness. I learned this from Bill a while back. He doesn’t talk about it often, but he has a  degree in Food Technology. We are happy to put this degree to use here making something tasty, that contains a little less sugar.

We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.

How to make Cape Iced Tea.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups Water (2 boiling, 6 cool)
  • 6 Tea Bags (we used P&G Tips for these photos)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed organic lemon juice

Iced Tea Directions

Boil 2 cups of water. Add tea bags and allow to brew. Set aside and allow to cool, then refrigerate.

When it is time to serve, mix the sugar, lemon juice, and remaining water (or water and ice). Add brewed tea, stir and serve.

We like to brew up the concentrated tea portion of this recipe when we are making tea in the morning. Then cool it down in the fridge and serve in the parlor for very relaxing afternoons watching the world go by on the front porch.

Recipe Tip:

Substitute Splenda for a sugar-free variation.
