Strawberry Banana Smoothie

My sugar-free exsistence, which you can read about here and here, lasted exactly two weeks. I fell off the wagon on Memorial Day, when I just couldn't resist strawberry pretzel salad and Gramma's carrot cake.

I'm still participating in the body after baby challenge and I'm happy to report that I'm down 8 lbs. total - just 7 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. Very exciting. This week I'm just controlling my portion sizes and limiting my sugar.

One of the yummiest treats that I had while on my sugar fast was a homemade strawberry-banana smoothie. I like to freeze my over-ripe bananas, so it's super sweet and totally (refined) sugar free!

Strawberry-Banana Smoothie

3 medium bananas - cut and frozen

1/3 cup frozen strawberries

1/2 to 1 cup milk

1 cup - ice cubes

Blend everything together in your blender. This makes a super thick shake, so you may need to add more milk (or yogurt, if you want a more breakfasty smoothie) to help the blender with all the frozen ingredients.

So yummy!

A couple reminders: You still have time to enter my Jack and Lily shoe giveaway! Don't miss out!

Make sure you check back tomorrow for an awesome home birth story! It's a gem.


  1. Thanks for the recipe. As I posted, not ready to give up all sweets but really working on the "refined" stuff. Congratulations on the weight loss

  2. 8 pounds Molly?! That's awesome!!

    I love smoothies, I'm going to try that recipe out, thanks!

  3. Yum! I love strawberry banana smoothies. Those two fruits were made for each other.

  4. I have been loving these for either breakfast or lunch!!! Refreshing. Have you ever tried freezing it for ice cream?
