Happy Smoothie Monday to you!! Today I took one of my favorite classic recipes, strawberry and banana and zipped it up by adding a secret ingredient, grapefruit juice. Oh boy now this is one refreshing smoothie.
The Strawberry Banana with Grapefruit smoothie is so good. The grapefruit adds a nice citrus taste to it but doesn’t make it sour at all. To give the recipe a punch of protein I added my beloved greek yogurt to it. For sweetness I added a little bit of sugar. Normally I use stevia in my smoothies, but for one I was out of it and two I have been trying to go more natural with my meals. I found that going back to my roots with regular ingredients like butter and sugar, I am actually losing weight and I am satisfied with my meals and desserts. I know it sounds a little crazy, but honestly it’s true. You may have noticed my recipes lately that include those ingredients. I would rather have a little bit of fat and sugary foods then eat a ton of sugar-free recipes. Will I still use stevia? Yes, I will but in moderation.
