Simple Strawberry Banana "Ice Cream" Smoothie



I do not miss ice cream when I have something like this available.  It certainly is: Dreamy and Creamy! It's also simple and doesn't need any ice cream maker.

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen strawberries (buy frozen or wash and freeze fresh ones)
1 frozen banana (allow fresh bananas to ripen, then remove peel and freeze)
Just enough milk (I used almond) to blend smooth but not make too thin
stevia, to taste (optional: if you have a sweet-tooth like me and want it even sweeter)




Directions:

Place ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth.  A high-speed blender works best for this and you can use the tamper tool to really get the ingredients blended well.  Any will do, you may just need to add more milk for a regular blender.  Enjoy!
