How to make a strawberry smoothie

Smoothie making tips
Freeze your bananas. I always chop up my aging bananas (this is when they are fullest in flavour) and pop them into freezer bags. That way I can have a smoothie any time I like as I use frozen bananas as the base for lots of my smoothie recipes.
If you don’t have a high speed food processor/blender then put the ice cubes into a plastic bag or wrap in a tea towel and bash them with a rolling pin to break them up a bit. Now put the broken ice cubes into the food processor/blender and make that super healthy strawberry smoothie. This tip will save wear and tear on your machine.
Want to go dairy free/vegan? Then swap out the Greek yogurt for more almond milk or other nut milk or a coconut based yogurt.
Want some crunch on your smoothie? Then add some mixed seeds and crushed nuts. They are full of protein and add great texture and taste too.
Add protein powder if you want a boost to your smoothie
