Strawberry & Banana Smoothie
Today I wanted to share the best recipe for a perfect strawberry and banana smoothie ever ;)
I absolutely looove this smoothie, and it has become one of my main breakfasts these past few months. When I recently found myself to be gluten intolerant I found it exceptionally difficult to replace my favourite breads especially for breakfast ;(
This recipe cheered up my morning blues and definitely gave me the satisfaction and contentment I was looking for, both in taste and fullness throughout the day.
Since moving to the UAE, we found it easier and much more economical to buy fresh fruit and veg in bulk. I wash it, chop it and separate into freezable portions suitable for my family size. So here i have used frozen fruits that also give the smoothie a much more thicker texture and colder taste.
Chop your fruit if they are fresh and place in the blender
Add the natural yogurt and honey followed by the freshly squeezed 100% orange juice (with no added sugar) just until the ingredients are slightly covered.
Blend until smooth.
(note that at least one of the ingredients must be frozen for the full taste, if not one of the fruits then the yogurt)
If you are using all frozen fruits then i find it easier to let sit in the juice for a few minutes before starting the blending ;)

I am not a qualified chef, health or nutrition adviser, I just have a passion for cooking and learning new things. I aspire to be the best Mother and Wife that I can be and love sharing the things I pick up along the way.
I am ethnically Moroccan but I was born and bread in UK and currently residing with my family in the UAE.
I feel blessed to have been brought up with a variety of multicultural foods. Morocco is known for its Mediterranean produce and shares a wonderful cocktail of French and Spanish recipes, but I was fortunate enough to not be restricted to this as both my parents worked in English catering when they first moved to the UK in the 60's, so I love a traditional cottage pie and Sunday roast just as much as a Tagine ;)
I later married into a beautiful Uzbek family that also share my passion for food and cooking. All the recipes I share in this blog are regular dishes we enjoy together, infused with the beautiful flavours of all worlds.
The traditional Moroccan recipes that I hope to preserve and document in this Blog for my daughters, sisters, family and friends were taught to me by my blessed Mother and late Father (raheem Allah) who was also a foodie ;) And they were taught by their parents and so on.
Marrying into an Uzbek family hasn't decreased the Moroccan in me but instead only enhanced and complemented my culture & ethnic food. Please feel free to visit, comment and share my content as well as advice me and please correct any of my short comings. I value constructive criticism that can benefit me & my learning in some way, providing it is given in a respectful & courteous manner ;)
