If you have ever been to Panera Bread, you must have tried their smoothies. If you like them, then you will want to keep buying them.
However, we all know that buying anything ready-made for you is pricey, so we decided to make our own copycat version of the Panera bread strawberry banana smoothie.
What Are Panera Smoothies Made Of?
Panera smoothies are very tasty, there is no doubt about that. But what are the ingredients?
Here they are:
Water, Strawberry Fruitbase (Strawberry Puree, White Grape Juice Concentrate, Apple Puree, Filtered Water, Concord Grape Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavors, Vitamins (C, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, B6, B12), Steviol Glycosides), Banana, Whole Milk Plain Greek Yogurt (Cultured Pasteurized Non-Fat Milk, Cream, Contains Live Active Cultures S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidus, L. Casei, L. Paracasei, L. Rhamnosus)
These are the ingredients for their banana and strawberry smoothie.
There are certainly good things about the smoothie, especially the greek yogurt, but you cannot say that their smoothie is the healthiest drink you can get.
The problem is the high amount of fruit purees, and juices from concentrate, which typically contain added sugars.
Worry not, though, because our copycat version is much, much healthier!
