Smoothies, in general, make for a fuss-free, grab and go breakfast or snack, especially when you are hard-pressed for time.
It is also great for weight loss, filled with all the healthy ingredients that are bound to nourish your body.
This coconut strawberry banana smoothie has all the ingredients to keep you feel satiated until your next mealtime.
Strawberries: Berries are low in calories and are great for weight loss. You can also use other berries like blueberry or blackberries in its place.
Banana: I always use frozen bananas for making smoothies, as it gives the smoothie a creamy texture.
Make sure that the banana is not overripe as it will spoil the taste of the smoothie. Use only ripe and firm bananas
Vegan Powder: I used my homemade vegan powder to make this smoothie. If you do not have homemade powder, then feel free to use whey protein or any plant-based protein powder of your choice.
Sweetener: If fruits are enough for you, you can totally skip adding sweetener. But if you are a person who prefers your smoothie sweet, then use sugar, cane sugar, honey, maple syrup or dates based on your diet preference.
Coconut milk: I used my homemade coconut milk to make this smoothie. You can also use regular milk or other plant-based kinds of milk like almond milk, cashew milk or soy milk.
Ice cubes: It is best to use ice cubes to get a creamy texture of the smoothie. Add ice cubes, especially when your liquid base for the smoothie is not chilled and at room temperature.
There is literally no cooking involved with making smoothies. The only work you need to do is to gather all the ingredients, add them to a blender and run it till the texture is creamy and smooth.
Serve immediately to enjoy its refreshing taste and flavour and to get the full health benefits.
You can skip ice cubes if the coconut milk is already chilled.
Using frozen fruits makes for a thick smoothie.
Do not use overripe bananas for this smoothie. The banana has to be ripe and firm.
