My Strawberry Banana Fruit Smoothie

This is a very simple smoothie to make. Very healthy for you and you can customize it to suit your taste by adding or removing some things.

Please post your versions of this smoothie for others and for me there are always great ideas out there I want to hear them and try them.

Serving size: 1 large glass or 2-3 small glasses

* 1-2 Bananas
* 4 Large strawberry's
* 1 Hand full of Blueberry's
* 1 Hand full of oatmeal uncooked (optional)
* 1/2 or 1 cup of milk low fat or soy milk if possible (can be substituted with water)
* 4 or more large cubes of ice

Blend until smooth and your done. Now you can change this up anyway you want to by adding removing or replacing anything for example I from time to time replace the oatmeal with some baby spinach. The oatmeal does not add any flavor at all it just adds some Protein and Fiber to your drink and is very healthy for those of us who don't like bland oatmeal without having to add sugar.
Now I know that its hard to keep fruit fresh and pay checks dont come often enough to keep buying fresh fruit so what I do to solve this issue is I get ziplock bags and prep my fruit for one serving and break the banana into chunks cut the strawberry's and then bag all the items even the blueberry's and put them in the freezer this helps them from going bad before I can use them for my smoothies and it also helps make the smoothie nice and cold when your ready to drink it. This allows me to have a smoothie anytime I want one without having to run to the store or waiting till I get paid to buy more fruit.

Love that. Instead of ice cubes (for me) I use frozen blueberries. Costco sells them and they have awesome flavor!
