Strawberry Banana Smoothie recipe
Hi again my smoothie lovers! Last week I shared with you a little info on the history of blenders, and we have a little more history to go with today’s recipe for a Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
There was a gentleman by the name of Steven Kuhnau who was lactose intolerant. He was sick of getting sick with other popular lactose-filled drinks at the time, so he began to blend together fresh fruit, nutrients, ice, and juices. He was happy to find that they tasted good and helped control his allergies, which lead him to open up the first of many stores called “The Smoothie King.” The word smoothie was used loosely in the 60’s to describe many things, but Steven was the first to brand it, in hopes to appeal to the already health conscious “hippies.” It worked! With over 600 stores nationwide, I’d say his brilliant idea took off.
Now that we’re done with the history lesson, I wanted to share today’s delicious smoothie recipe. This particular smoothie recipe is SO great because it contains simple ingredients that you most likely already have – strawberries, bananas, yogurt and milk. Yes, it has lactose, which means Steven wouldn’t have enjoyed it, but those can be easily substituted for apple or orange juice.
This smoothie tasted so delicious and refreshing. The kids loved it!! I’m hoping to sneak in some spinach next time to see if the kids can even notice. I doubt they’ll even know! 😉 Drink up friends!
