Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Deneece Gursky


This is my take on this well loved smoothie. I dont like to start a drink off with ice in order to make it that slushie smooth since ice is water and water delutes. So I always find an alternative to the ice in my frozen drinks. This is so delicious and is made out of such yummy ingredients you cant help but love them. For an adult version add rum at the end
