Strawberry Banana Smoothie
This strawberry banana smoothie is made with only a few blended ingredients. It's a classic smoothie recipe that's sweet, nutritious and perfect for summer!
Servings 2 servings
- 2 cups strawberries
- 1 banana cut and frozen
- 1 ½ cup milk
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
- Sliced strawberries for serving (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until the texture is smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
Taste the smoothie, adding more milk if it is too thick or adding a sweetener of choice if it's not sweet enough for you. Add fresh fruit for garnish, if desired.
Enjoy cold immediately, or store in fridge for up to 24 hours
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight mason jar. It will stay fresh for up to 24 hours. But ideally, it's best to consume immediately after making. You can also try adding a squeeze of lemon juice or lime juice to help prevent the fruit from oxidizing.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
Equipment: I make my smoothies in my Vitamix. It has a "smoothie" button so it does all the work for me until the ingredients are well blended.

- Instead of regular milk, you can use any other plant-based milk to make this vegan, including almond milk, cashew milk or coconut milk.
- Instead of Greek yogurt, you can use plant-based yogurt or even plain yogurt.
- To replace the banana, you can use one cup of any chopped fruit. To keep the pinkish color, I recommend using apple or nectarines,
