Whip up these tasty Strawberry Banana Smoothies for a breakfast treat your family will love.

Is there any combo more classic than a strawberry banana smoothie? It almost rivals peanut butter and jelly. I use to struggle with getting the perfect consistency with my smoothies. Now that I’ve finally found the right ratios for the perfect smoothie consistency – not too thick and not too thin, just like in these homemade Strawberry Milkshakes – I had to share it with you.

We use frozen strawberries and bananas to get the right thickness, and Greek yogurt to not only add to the thickness but to add a little extra protein. Then we add some chia seeds to boost the fiber content and just a touch of honey to add a warm sweetness. We think you’ll love our twist on this classic combo as much as we do!
