Strawberry and Banana Smoothie

When I was sick it was difficult to cook and have a proper meals, and a simple smoothie with yogurt, banana and strawberries really helped, its healthy and easy to drink :-). Smoothies are great anytime and a fun way to have fruit in the diet. 


  • about 5 strawberries sliced
  • one banana sliced
  • about 1/2 a cup of natural yogurt 
  • sugar to taste, if your strawberries are sweet not needed

  1. simply blend all the ingredients together and enjoy
We had a good time visiting our friends in Virginia beach and got to visit the Aquarium if your in the area I highly recommend it Jasmine was enthralled :-). There were sharks, turtles,touch pools really impressive. She is still talking about the fish she saw, and of course our friends baby although she was so jealous when Daddy picked him up! he he 

Next time your in a city with an aquarium treat yourself and visit :-)

finally I just have to share this amazing link with you by the talented David Lebovitz on food blogging, the best advice I have read in a long time, well worth the read
