Yes, this is the best strawberry smoothie in the history of the world. Made with only 3 ingredients, 2 of them being frozen strawberries and banana – this refreshing simple smoothie is healthy, easy to make and just delicious. It’s even better than a strawberry shake. I’m not lying.
Right now, I’m addicted to this. It’s sweet, fresh, tastes like a dessert without being overly sweet…You know that sweetness that gives you a hole in your tooth right away? Not that kind of sweetness. It’s a natural, refreshing sweetness that makes you feel good and smile.
This quick smoothie is perfect for a snack, whenever you need a little pick me up. I often make it when I need something sweet and I don’t want to poison myself. And, if your child is old enough to have milk – give them a sip too. Or use breastmilk. OMG, this would totally work. Probably. I don’t know – don’t do it. Do whatever you want.
Strawberry Smoothie Ingredients
To make this simple, but tasty smoothie you will need only 3 ingredients:
Strawberries. Use frozen strawberries to make this smoothie thicker and cooler without adding any ice. That is the big secret here, it helps get that beautiful texture – something between a slushy and a shake.
Banana. In this smoothie I used a fresh banana, but if you don’t have fresh bananas, you can also use frozen ones. It will make a thicker smoothie and you’ll probably need to add more liquid.
Liquid of choice. You can use regular milk, almond milk, coconut milk, orange juice or even water to make this or any other smoothie.
Optional: add some cinnamon, vanilla or if you want: Greek yogurt. To make the smoothie even healthier and more filling you can also add chia seeds, flax seeds, overnight oats or a Tbsp of your favorite nut butter.
Fruit To Add To A Strawberry Smoothie
If you don’t like bananas and would like to make a strawberry smoothie without banana, these fruits also would go well with strawberries:
You can use them fresh or frozen. They’re pretty sweet, so I always like to add a little bit of yogurt or coconut cream to balance it out.
Now, let’s get to the recipe.
- 1 cup frozen berries
- 1 banana, medium
- 1 cup milk
- cinnamon (optionally)
- Add all ingredients to your blender, blend until smooth and serve immediately. If the smoothie turns out too thick for your taste - add some more milk, if too liquid - add more fruit. I added just a tiny pinch of cinnamon before blending, was a good addition.
Use milk of your choice - whole milk, coconut milk or almond milk would all be good additions.
