Strawberry Banana Mikshake Smoothie

Serves 2

1. 3 large strawberries (This amount is perfect to give the strawberry flavor and also just 3 strawberries would cover all the daily vitamin C requirement. Do not add more strawberries, as it will dilute the taste and the richness of the smoothie)
2. 1 banana
3. 1 orange peeled and quartered
4. 1.5 cup (375 ml) fresh milk (For strawberry smoothie, I prefer the full fat version for the extra richness, but you can also use fresh skimmed milk)
5. 1 tsp hazelnut butter
6. 1 tsp flax seeds ground (optional)
7. 1/4 tsp vanilla powder (optional)

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Additional Information:
Daddy FECS knows that I love strawberries and he bought one case today. I love strawberry smoothie, and I decided to use them to make smoothie.

I use an orange and a banana as sweetening, and I like banana :-) If you don't like to include banana in a strawberry milkshake smoothie, you can use 1 teaspoon (tsp) of vanilla sugar in its place. Many recipes called for 1-2 TBS of nut butter. Nut butter is expensive and it is fattening, if consumed in excess. I find that adding 1 teaspoon of nut butter is perfect to give it a more rich milkshake taste, yet not too heavy. I find that adding 1-2 tablespoon of nut butter is too much. My preferred nut butter is hazelnut.

Strawberries freeze well. If I can't finish them, I will freeze up some of them in a portion size freezing bags for smoothies at a later time :-)

Little FECS and Baby FECS love this smoothie too. If I succeeded with Baby FECS, I know that I have truly succeeded, as she is so picky and has a sweet tooth :-)
