Strawberry Banana and Applesauce Smoothie



I have been experimenting using Applesauce in my smoothies and I have been quite happy with the results! I initially tried it with my Blueberry Banana Smoothie and it was just so yummy I decided to try it this time with some lovely strawberries which were on sale this week! Naturally, I wasn’t surprised at all that it came out as wonderful as the Blueberry one. But if you don’t have some Applesauce handy then why not try it with real apples – I am pretty sure it’ll come out great too! Truly a healthy smoothie that’s totally guilt-free! Without much ado, enjoy this Strawberry Banana and Applesauce Smoothie!

Ingredients

2
Frozen bananas, chopped
1 cup strawberries, washed and chopped
1/2 cup unsweetened Applesauce (if
sweetened you may not need to add any sweetener at all) – or 2 fresh apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup yogurt
(plain)
1 Tablespoon – Honey or Agave Nectar (or to taste)

Procedure

Peel
the frozen bananas. I find the potato peeler or a small knife useful to remove
the frozen skin. Slice the bananas into smaller pieces.

Place the
 strawberries, applesauce, yogurt, frozen bananas and your preferred sweetener in
the blender. Process until smooth. Adjust the sweetness to your taste. Serve immediately!

    I've never tried putting apple in my smoothie before. I think I'll have to give this a shot this morning! Thanks 🙂

      Monica, applesauce makes a lot difference as far as I am concerned. It adds not only extra sweetness but a nice texture and anothe layer of flavor to the smoothie! Try it! Thanks for stopping by!

      You can totally not use it, it's fine. Either add a little milk or no dairy at all. You can go all fruits in this smoothie!

      Hi Love! In the US, grocery stores carry that. If you are in the Philippines I am not sure where to find it as I don't reside there. Perhaps you can try the big grocery stores that sell PX goods like S & R. It may be worth trying Rustans or SM as you never know they may carry it, too. Hope you find it and please let me know where if you do! Thanks! 🙂
