Strawberry Banana Smoothie

I have lots of delicious smoothie recipes on my site (I really love smoothies!), but I think the most classic of all is this Strawberry Banana Smoothie. It’s got a short ingredient list and I really think everyone loves the combination of strawberry and bananas. You can’t go wrong! And the best part? My kids BEG for this smoothie! They think it is a treat and I love that it is packed with healthy ingredients. Everyone wins!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients

I love this ingredient list! It’s short, simple, and I’m guessing you’ve got these items in your kitchen already. We’ll be blending…

  • Frozen strawberries-I like to use frozen strawberries because I can keep them in the freezer at all times, no matter the season, and they are usually more affordable. Plus, frozen strawberries will make a thicker smoothie. If you have fresh strawberries, you can use them, just make sure you use a frozen banana or add ice to thicken the smoothie.
  • Banana – The more brown, the sweeter your smoothie will be! If you have bananas going brown on the counter you can always peel, cut, and freeze them. You can use a fresh or frozen banana. Just make sure you use one frozen fruit, either the strawberries or the banana.
  • Milk – Use any kind you like. I prefer unsweetened vanilla almond milk or even my Homemade Kefir!
  • Plain Greek yogurt– I like to use plain Greek yogurt because I always have it in the fridge and it is lower in sugar than sweetened yogurts. You can use vanilla yogurt if you prefer it.
  • Frozen cauliflower – I promise you can’t taste it and it actually gives the smoothie a super creamy texture. I highly encourage you to add it in!
  • Vanilla extract– Just a splash for sweet vanilla flavor!

How to Make a Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are so EASY to make. Simply place all of the ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth! I use this blender and I love it! A good blender really is key for making sure all of the ingredients get blended up well. You don’t want a chunky smoothie, you want a nice and creamy smoothie:)

Pour the smoothie into a glass or jar and enjoy! I like to use these reusable straws.
