Ultimate Strawberry Banana Smoothie ~ double the fruit, double the flavor

Ultimate Strawberry Banana Smoothie ~ Have it for a breakfast, snack, dessert or cocktail ~ This drink does it ALL!

I've mentioned before how much I like V8's V-Fusion Juices.  In my opinion, it's the ultimate fruit/veggie beverage, a full serving of fruit & a full serving of veggies in every 8 ounce glass, and you NEVER taste the veggies in it.  How do they do that?  This morning I decided to use the Strawberry/Banana Juice Blend & came up with the ultimate in strawberry/banana smoothie flavor.  Using the juice blend, along with the frozen fruit, gives this smoothie a real depth of flavor.  Best ever strawberry banana drink I've ever had ~ Oh, yeah!  Love when that happens!

This would make the perfect breakfast drink, snack, dessert or even cocktail.  Dress it up any way you want ~ drink it from a tumbler or a pretty glass ~ drink it as-is or with the low fat whipped cream & a strawberry 'sidecar'.  Depending on how you serve it, it would make a sweet end to a meal or if you just add some coconut rum, you've got a healthy adult tropical beverage.

5 a.m. & it's a breakfast smoothie or 5 p.m. & it's cocktail time... Like the song says ~ It's 5 o'clock somewhere.  What time is it at your house?   :)

Throw first six ingredients into a blender & blend until smooth & frosty.
