I LOVE smoothies, I really do. I drink them pretty much every single day and now and again I'll have two in a day just for the added hydration and nutrients. Sometimes when I'm thirsty instead of drinking water I'll make a quick smoothie with a higher water to fruit ratio. Likewise when I'm having a smoothie as a breakfast or meal I'll try and bulk it out with extra bananas or other fruit.
This however is my staple smoothie, my main squeeze, if you will. I'll have it for breakfast, while watching a movie, when I'm not feeling good, after a workout, as a sweet-tooth-satisfying midnight snack instead of a few handfuls of chocolate chips, if I need extra energy or feeling sluggish – basically all the time.
I use a NutriBullet to make smoothies instead of a blender and I love the results. I've had my NurtiBullet for over 2 years now and it's still running great! More on that another day though, we've got smoothies to make!
Pink Banana Smoothie in a NutriBullet
- 2 Small-to-medium Sized Bananas
- 6-10 Pieces of Frozen Pineapple
- 4-6 Frozen Strawberries
- 1 TSP Flax Seeds
Add your peeled bananas and frozen pineapple to the small NutriBullet cup. Push down on the pineapple to make more room for the strawberries. Add in the strawberries and flax seeds. Fill your NutriBullet most of the way, about an inch ABOVE the max fill line with water. Blend well, until it reaches desired consistency. For a thicker smoothie add more frozen fruit, for a thinner smoothie add less frozen fruit.
You can use ground flax seeds instead, I'd use either, or you can also emit the flax seeds all together. If you remove the blade/lid to check the consistency and want to blend it some more be sure to rinse off the blade/lid to prevent leaks from seeds.
For me, this smoothie truly is the bees knees! I hope you enjoy!
