This strawberry mango banana smoothie is summer in a glass! Delicious, refreshing and full of summer’s favourite fruits, it’s the perfect drink to enjoy on a spectacular summer day.
Welcome to summer! My favourite season is here at last (*jumping with joy*).
Last year we did a no-bake August when we did not turn our ovens on at all. This year let’s do a no-bake summer! Who wants to be cooped up in a hot kitchen anyhow when you can be hot outside lol.
So from now until the end of August, let’s make a pact to spend as little time indoors and as much time outdoors basking in glorious sunshine. In Canada these warm summer months are precious so I am beyond excited.
This doesn’t mean we won’t be enjoying delicious treats. Just the opposite! You can look forward to no-bake goodies from here on out. From smoothies to no-bake desserts to grilled favourites. Let’s get started!
No ice for this summer girl
Frankly, I almost didn’t share this smoothie recipe. It’s so simple I figure everyone would already know how to do it. Or already have a favourite version of it.
What I found though is a lot of people use ice in their smoothies. That’s fine. I just don’t. I like my smoothies rich and thick and not watered down. So how do I keep it ice-cold? I freeze my fruits!
Freeze your own fruits
We buy frozen fruits but when it’s summer and there’s an abundance of produce, we freeze our own.
So grab a cup of sliced strawberries, sliced mangoes and sliced bananas (or whatever your favourite fruits are), put them in Ziploc bags and freeze. When you’re smoothie ready, just dump them into your blender and off you go.
Truth be told, we’re smoothie newbies. We’ve given up pop (or soda or soft drinks, depends on where you live) years ago and we’ve trained ourselves to only drink water as much as possible no matter how tempting an ice-cold pop is.
But one day that we had fruits about to go bad (funny how that always happens to us) we decided to make smoothies and there was no turning back. I love layering the smoothie too (it’s fun!) but you can also just opt to put all the ingredients together.
