In the meantime, we are a strawberry lovin' family and just cannot wait for the ones in our garden. So, that means many containers of organic strawberries come home with us!
One container of those organic strawberries made its way into the blender for this gluten, casein (the protein in dairy), soy free Strawberry-Banana Smoothie and it was absolutely deliscious!!! So delish that the kidlets had three glasses each! It was definitely a meal in a glass that day. :> (Our son cannot eat gluten or casein and soy is extremely limited in his diet. He just loves it when he can eat something that looks and tastes like what everyone else can eat and won't make him sick & miserable!!)
Gluten/Casein/Soy Free Strawberry-Banana Smoothie
One container of GF/CF/SF Coconut Yogurt
(we used strawberry-banana here, but plain or vanilla would work too)
One ripe banana
One 16 oz. container of organic strawberries
(halving or quartering first, depending on size, helps in the blending)
Half a scoop of Pea Protein
Ten drops of liquid Stevia
Add all ingredients to the blender and blend!
Did you know that you can add some spinach or kale to a sweet fruit smoothie and not effect its taste? You can! How much you add depends on how big your blender is and how much fruit you have in it. It will change its color, but its a great way to add some extra nutrients & dark leafy green veggies to you or your kidlets diet. Everybody's tastes are different, but personally, I've never seen anyone turn down a smoothie! :>
What's your favorite smoothie? My kidlets want to try a mango smoothie next!
