Here are a few common questions we ran across during our recipe research:

Is Strawberry Banana Smoothies Good for You?

Strawberry Banana smoothies can be made a little healthier by taking a look at the ingredients we are adding. Healthy means different things to different people. If you are watching your calorie intake, consider using a liquid that is lower in calories. Strawberries and bananas both contain vitamin c, potassium, and several other vitamins and minerals. Depending on what liquid you choose to add-in, you can pack in a lot of extra protein and calcium into the smoothie.

What Liquid is Best for Fruit Smoothies?

A few common liquids that are added to smoothies include water, milk, coconut milk, oat milk, yogurt, and juice. You can add them in different combinations depending on your taste and nutritional preferences. Milk provides a nice boost of protein and calcium. Fruit juices can sweeten up your smoothie and make it taste delicious, although the juices do add a lot of natural sugar to the smoothie.

Is it Good to Drink a Strawberry and Banana Smoothie Everyday?

Drinking daily smoothies is a great way to add extra vitamins and minerals to your daily diet. To get the full benefit of various vitamins and minerals, you might want to consider switching up the fruits you add to your smoothie.

Strawberries and bananas do provide a good boost of vitamins. The biggest concern would be the amount of sugar you are intaking daily. Make sure that whatever smoothie you choose to consume fits in with your daily sugar intake and nutritional goals.

Do You Put Ice in a Smoothie?

You may add ice to any smoothie. The ice will change the consistency and temperature of the smoothie. A good practice is to add ice into smoothies made with fresh fruits to add a thicker texture. If you are making a smoothie with frozen fruit I would omit the ice. Frozen fruit will add a thick consistency to the smoothie and help bring the temperature of the beverage down. Ice is not needed when you are adding in frozen fruit. The only caveat to this would be if you wanted an extremely thick smoothie consistency.

Is it Better to Make Smoothies with Fresh or Frozen Fruit?

Is fresh or frozen fruit better for smoothies? Generally, people use frozen fruit to make their smoothies have a thick consistency and icy cool temperature. Fresh fruit works great if you want a smoothie that is a more liquid consistency. If you use fresh fruit we would recommend adding in ice to help thicken it up a little bit and cool the smoothie temperature down.
