Orange Julius Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

As with most people, when the new year started, I wanted to start being more healthy. Included in that broad category are eating more fruits & veggies and eating breakfast. Thus, I became a smoothie-aholic.

Mostly I would throw whatever fruits & juice from the fridge into the blender (mostly orange juice, bananas, & strawberry yogurt). But now I am starting to branch out a little bit. If you follow me on Instagram at all, you will notice my multi-colored smoothie concoctions. I loved to add spinach, avocados, honey, &/or dry oats. Some combinations are excellent, others are dumped down the drain.

But no matter how much I branch out, I still find that the strawberry, banana & orange combination is my favorite of all. If you have ever been to the Orange Julius and tried one of their Strawberry Banana smoothies, you will know why.
