Notes

Meal prep: Wash, dry, and pre-portion the strawberries and banana in a freezer-safe ziplock bag and freeze until ready to use. All you need to do is dump them with milk/yogurt and sweetener and blend!!
Add Greens: It's a great way to add greens to your diet as you barely taste them in a smoothie. Just add a handful of washed kale or spinach.
Amp up the protein - either add your favorite protein powder or go the natural way and add nut butter (almond butter, cashew butter, or peanut butter) or greek yogurt
Amount of liquid: may vary depending on the type of blender. High-powered blenders blend much better, so if you have a regular or personal-size blender, you may need to add more milk/liquid. I've used my Vitamix.
Consistency: The consistency mentioned in this recipe is pourable. If your smoothie seems too thick, add in a bit of extra milk or water.  If it seems too thin, add in more strawberries or bananas.
Discoloration: This smoothie is best served fresh!! Keeping it for longer (even in the fridge) can result in discoloration due to bananas. It may still be ok to drink. 
Make it vegan - replace the milk and yogurt with dairy-free alternatives 
For creamier smoothie  - use frozen fruit and Greek yogurt
