You would think that a foodie like me could stay on top of when it’s time to reveal a new recipe, but yesterday was SO busy for me that I totally forgot what I was supposed to be doing! I decided to join a new recipe swap site this month. Little Hungry Girl hosts every month The Suprise Recipe Swap.
The SRS (Surprise Recipe Swap) is a wonderful opportunity to meet other bloggers, build blogging friendships and explore others recipes.
It’s also a fun and easy way to add more exposure to your blog – increasing your traffic by getting link backs from others, being mentioned on social media networks, simply finding new followers!

This month, the blog I was assigned was Who Needs a Cape. I had THE hardest time pinning it down to one recipe as there were so many yummy ones to choose from. Who Needs a Cape is run by 6 fabulous ladies who can flat cook! I finally decided to make their yummy strawberry banana smoothie since I am trying very hard to watch what I eat these days.
- 3 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 whole ripe banana
- 1 cup vanilla or plain yogurt ( I try to get one that has at least 10 grams of protein)
- 2 cups orange juice
- 4 Tbsp. sugar or honey
- 1 cup ice
- 2 Tbsp. wheat germ
- 2 Tbsp. ground flax
- splash of milk
- Put all ingredients into blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- If it seems really thick add in the splash of milk to thin it out.
- Pour into cups and enjoy!
- Garnish with extra fresh strawberries on the side
