Sippin' Strawberries in Seattle

Back to Seattle and back to homemade food. 
I recently made a delicious beverage/ snack that I believe is one of the best fruit smoothies I've ever made (maybe even ever had). Cold, smooth, creamy, just sweet enough, and with a nice tang, due to lime that just makes all the flavors pop. 

Strawberry Banana Smoothie:
5 FROZEN Strawberries (frozen= key to a cold, non icy/watery smoothie)
1/2 banana, sliced
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 Tablespoons plain yogurt (make these generous scoops, not leveled Tablespoons)
splash of Skim Milk
About 1 teaspoon, or just a drizzle of honey

Pulse in the blender a few times, then puree for approximately 15 or so seconds until drinkable. DON'T ADD ICE OR'll just be watery. 
This makes 1 large or 2 small smoothie servings.
Keep in mind, if you use a flavored yogurt, you should probably omit the honey, but that could be delicious too.
