Sugarfree Strawberry - Banana smoothie

Strawberries are in season, at least in India. I have only heard strawberries being inherently sweet because the ones you get here are tangy at best. Sometimes, they are just too tangy it is impossible to consume them without sugar. When I picked up a tiny packet of strawberries from the supermarket this time around, I did not have a plan. But as I placed it next to the bananas that were already at home, I suddenly knew what to make - Strawberry Banana Smoothie. 

The ingredients, well almost. Milk is missing.

Making smoothies are super simple and this one is no exception. I did not add any sugar in this but did add a couple of teaspoons of honey. You can skip it if you want it absolutely sugar free. 

Garnish with a mint leaf before serving.

Bananas - 2
Strawberries - 3 medium ones
Milk - one glass (some recipes call for yogurt, I have never tried though)
Honey - 2 tea spoons (optional)

Here's how you make it:
  • Pulse all the ingredients in your blender and pour it into an old fashioned stout glass
  • Garnish with a mint leaf and drizzle some honey on top if you like
  • Serve chilled

Simple, no?
