It has been a few weeks since I left my job to stay home for relaxation (for the time being only of ‘cos). In my free time, I am able to clear some housework and also do more cooking! Well… Cooking ain’t my best so I can only start from the most basic recipes that can be found there, starting with a smoothie recipe. And also since Feng bought us a new food processor, we have been indulging ourselves with smoothies a few times a week! A healthy diet for 2013! o(>ω<)o

Strawberry & Banana Smoothie Recipe

Here are the fruits for our smoothie and the simple recipe. At times I will make myself a Banana smoothie for my breakfast all thanks to the simple recipe. ( ´ ω ` )

The pale-looking drink is actually the smoothie (*/ω\)

Ingredients List

  • 1 cup strawberries (fresh)
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup low-fat yoghurt
  • ½ cup ice


  1. Throw all the cut-up strawberries and bananas into the food processor. Blend at the highest speed (15 on my food processor) until everything is mashed up.
  2. Stop blending. Now pour the yoghurt and honey into the food processor and blend at a slightly lower speed (10 on my food processor) until mixed.
  3. Stop the blending again. Pour all the ice into the food processor and start blending at the highest speed until all the ice has been blended.
  4. Serve while cold!

Things to Note

I followed the instructions according to the user manual of my food processor and of ‘cos I am rephrasing them according to how I do it. Instructions everywhere else are as simple as “Throw everything in and start the processor to blend”. Haha!

You can adjust the sweetness of the drink by adding a suitable amount of honey. 1/2 tsp was just right for me. We also decided to use honey instead of sugar for a healthy replacement. Also if you are using frozen fruits, you can omit the ice but instead, put water for a watery consistency.

Enjoy the yummy-licious healthy drink! (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ
