Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Continuing the raw theme, my breakfast today was a yummy smoothie made with fruits and nuts and fat free milk. I was wondering if I will feel full till lunch time and I actually almost made it through. You can try substituting strawberries with other berries and almonds with other nuts too. Also, if you want, you can add honey for sweetening the smoothie. 
Ingredients (Serves 1)
Strawberries (frozen) – 4
Banana – ½ large banana
Almonds (soaked overnight) – 10
Milk – 1-1 1/4 cups
Add all the ingredients to your blender/mixie and get blending till you have a smooth mixture. Pour into a large glass and enjoy. You can use the green tops of the strawberries too. Bon App├ętit

Blueberry Banana Smoothie
1) I usually buy slightly large quantities of strawberries when they are in season and freeze them, so that I can enjoy them whenever I want. To freeze berries, wash them and towel dry them. Put them in a zip lock bag and freeze.
2) Soak the almonds (or any other nut) overnight so that they grind well. Else they only get broken.
