Strawberry and Banana Smoothie

A Smoothie is a fruit drink, which originates in the US*, where milk bars started selling them in the 20s and 30s. They became very popular in the late 70s and 80s, with the increasing popularity of fitness and sports.
The basis is always fresh or frozen fruit, but apart from that, one can be very inventive:
They can contain crushed ice, milk, yogurt, frozen yogurt or ice cream, which gives them a thick and creamy texture. The possibilities are very wide.
The great thing about them is that they are done in minutes and provide a quick and refreshing breakfast.
The book ‘smoothies and juices’ offers a wonderful collection of sweet and savoury drinks for all times of day!

  • ½ c plain yogurt
  • ¾ c strawberry yogurt
  • ¾ c orange juice
  • 6 oz (175g) frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana, sliced and frozen

Pour the two yogurts into a food processor and blend gently. Add the orange juice and mix until well combined.
Add the strawberries and banana and process until smooth.
Pour the mixture into tall glasses and decorate with slices of fresh orange and whole fresh strawberries.

Serves two

*the Indian Lassi drink is basically also a smoothie, but I could find no connection that the American smoothie originates from the Indian beverage.
