Today I was looking through my freezer and came across some strawberries I'd frozen at the beginning of July. I figured it was a good time to use them in a smoothie. Plus I had strawberry yogurt to start using.
I got pretty excited about having a smoothie. And then I remembered we didn't have any bananas. I hadn't been to the store since returning from Utah, so there were no bananas in the house. Disappointed, I started to put everything away. For me, a smoothie just isn't a smoothie without banana.
But then I remembered my THRIVE Bananas!! Thanks to my home store (though still admittedly more meager than I'd prefer...) I did have bananas in the house!
So I set to making my smoothie -- and here's how I did it:
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, slightly thawed
1/3 cup strawberry yogurt
2 teaspoons THRIVE blueberry yogurt bites powder (just she stuff from the bottom of the can -- figured I didn't want to waste it!)
1/3 cup THRIVE banana slices
1 1/4 cup milk
Add all ingredients to a blender and let sit about 3 minutes so the bananas reconstitute a little bit. Then blend! And serve. The smoothie will thicken as it sits.
It was easy, and I got to have my smoothie after all :). So I say it was a win! And my toddler loved sharing this with me at lunch. She kept asking for "more." I'm definitely loving that I can turn to my home store -- even if isn't exactly an emergency :).
