Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies are really fun because they are so customizable. You can change so many of the ingredients to match your lifestyle, like choosing whether or not you want to make it dairy free or if you want to add-in something extra. As long as you have the staple strawberries, bananas and apples–you’re all good!

Apples are so great for smoothies because they add so much flavor, but it’s not overpowering. When it comes to the fruit it can be fresh or frozen, either way this smoothie tastes amazing!

This is an easy recipe with ingredients you probably already have on hand, and you can vary it to fit your needs and likes!

Expert Tips

  • If you want something extra, add protein powder!

  • Slice and freeze your banana and strawberries about 2 hours ahead of time if you don’t already have them frozen. It helps the consistency of the smoothie.

FAQs

Do you have to use frozen fruit?

No, use whatever fruit you have on hand. Though even if you’re using fresh fruit, you may want to freeze them ahead of time for the consistency of the smoothie.

What can I substitute for the banana?

You can add more yogurt!

How do you thicken a fruit smoothie?

The more liquid you have the less thick it will be. If you want it thicker add more of the fruit. Even a little ice can make a smoothie thicker.
