Curious about how to make a strawberry banana smoothie with ice? Who doesn’t love a tasty strawberry banana smoothie right? I have just what you need, and thankfully it isn’t too complicated to do it right.
But remember ultimately smoothie recipes are a matter of taste and you occasionally need to experiment with the amount and type of ingredients you use to see what appeals to your particular palate. Now when I think of any type smoothie with ice, I think of light, sweet, and refreshing, you know? So that’s the taste I was going for with this particular strawberry banana smoothie recipe.
So while this recipe does not deviate too much from my how to make a strawberry banana smoothie guide, this recipe does use ice instead of extra frozen fruit to make the smoothie colder and thicker. The reason this can sometimes be preferable is that it has less sugar, extends your supply of fruit, and can be a bit more refreshing and friendly on the old waistline. So all you need to do is get a package of fresh strawberries and 1 large fresh banana, and obviously some frozen ice cubes.
What I would advise is that you get some organic ground stevia for sweetening, which is a safe and natural 0 calorie sweetener, without any of the guilt of extra sugar, honey, or agave syrup. I also use a bit of organic lemonade in this recipe too for a subtle tangy kick. Once you have these ingredients, you should be good to go! Now for the recipe….

Notes : This smoothie recipe uses ice, but not all blenders are capable of blending up whole ice cubes, and if you know this to be the case for your blender, just put the ice cubes in a clear plastic baggy and use a rolling pin, hammer, or equivalent to break them up into finer pieces for easier blending.
