Strawberry Banana and Applesauce Smoothie

Deliciously refreshing, all-natural and so good for you, too – Strawberry Banana and Applesauce Smoothie.

 

 

I have been experimenting and 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!

 

NOTES ON INGREDIENTS FOR Strawberry Banana and Applesauce Smoothie

  • Bananas – use frozen bananas so you don’t need to add extra ice and make a cold smoothie right away. If you don’t have any frozen bananas the fresh ones should work well, too. Simply add some ice to your liking.
  • Strawberries – fresh or frozen may be used too. Use strawberries in season for the juiciest and freshest taste.
  • Applesauce – use unsweetened for a lesser sugar treat. If sweetened is what’s available you may not need to add any sweetener at all. You can also use fresh apples if that is preferred.
  • Yogurt – plain or vanilla-flavored yogurt may be used. For a thicker smoothie, use the pre-strained Greek yogurt variety.
  • Honey or Agave Nectar – use your favorite sweetener!

    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! 🙂
