Coconut Strawberry Banana Smoothie

The semester has started for me and I am beyond excited to start my Master's program at CSULB!

I know I am a dietetics student when..... I have been planning out my schedule, meal plans and work for this week!! Now I am ready to buckle down and do well in my classes and meet all my fellow dietetic interns! I am a little nervous but definitely excited to move towards my goal of becoming an RD. So to start my FIRST DAY OF GRAD SCHOOL, I am enjoying one of my favorite smoothie combinations-- strawberry and banana! I used coconut greek yogurt and coconut water.

I love using frozen bananas in my smoothies because they add sweetness and thickness to every smoothie. Bananas are also a healthy source of vitamin C, fiber, vitamin B6 and antioxidants. It's a great staple ingredient to have in the kitchen and it can be added to food in a variety of ways such as baked goods, salads, or breakfast (french toast, cereal or oatmeal!).
