Ina's Orange Banana Smoothie

We had eaten a very late (and quite large) lunch, so by the time dinner rolled around, we just weren’t that hungry. Fast forward to 8pm, and while we were still quite full, we wanted something sweet. Hmmm….

I had bookmarked this smoothie drink and we had all the ingredients, so we busted out our blender and went to town. This smoothie drink definitely foot the bill. It was refreshing, light, healthy, and has no sweetener or sugar. 100% all natural, filling, and dairy-free. Ina's original version uses fresh strawberries- we opted to use frozen strawberries that we just picked up from Trader Joe's and it gave it a nice smoothie (thicker) consistency.

Ina's Orange Banana Smoothie


  • 1-1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (4 oranges)
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries (or substitute fresh strawberries with top cut off)
  • 1 to 1-1/2 ripe bananas


  1. Combine the orange juice, lime juice, strawberries, and banana in a blender and process until smooth. Refrigerate until cold.
