Strawberry-Banana Smoothie over Pancakes

Strawberry banana smoothie 021

We spent about three years traveling and visiting churches all across the country as a part of my husband’s ministry.  In the course of this traveling, we had the opportunity to stay with many families.  I loved getting to know these people and learning new things from them.  Eating with other families is often an “adventure” and you realize quickly, every family has different likes and dislikes.  Fortunately, our family doesn’t mind trying new things.  

On one trip to Missouri we stayed with a very sweet family who owned a large farm.  We realized quickly, they ate VERY healthy.  Now, I have to be honest…I find most “healthy” food…well, good for you…but not always as tasty as it’s “not so healthy” alternative.  I know there are plenty of foods that are good for you that also taste good…I just don’t think I’ve actually eaten too many of them. Thankfully, at this families house we ate some GREAT food.  

For breakfast we had a couple of dishes I’d never had before.  First, Baked Oatmeal with Peaches, which we all really enjoyed and I now make somewhat regularly.  Second, whole grain pancakes (made of several grains, I’m pretty sure they ground themselves) with Strawberry Banana Smoothie topping instead of syrup.  I haven’t attempted the grinding of my own grain but I have made the Smoothie “syrup” to serve over Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes. (Hey, oatmeal’s healthy, right?) 

This Smoothie takes only a couple of minutes to whip up.  It uses frozen fruit and your favorite yogurt.  I always seem to have bananas in the freezer so that’s what flavor we usually have.  

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 individual sized container strawberry Greek yogurt
  • 1/8 – 1/4 cup honey – to taste
  • “Splash” of milk

This recipe makes enough for 2-3 people

    Smoothie over a pancake is actually a really smart idea! I’ll have to try it- I bet the kids would get a kick out of it!
    I knew we had been to Costco for samples too much when one day my daughter (4) said, “I sure wish we could have smoothies at home, but I guess we can’t because we don’t have a Vitamix!” lol
