How to Make a Strawberry Banana Smoothie

So, easy, the kids can do it, that’s how! Easy fruit smoothie recipes start off with fresh or frozen strawberries and bananas. I prefer to use frozen fruit if I have it, this means I don’t need to add any ice to make it cold or water it down. Lots of supermarkets sell frozen smoothie fruit medleys so it’s easier than ever! If your fruit is not frozen, you’ll want to add some ice to give it a frosty chill.

What to Put in a Smoothie

Any number of great things can be put into a smoothie! That’s why they are so popular! The trick is creating the right ratio of vegetables & fruit so your creation is not only good for you, but tasty too (my kids used to consider them dessert)!

The best thing about a smoothie is that it’s really easy to make your own!

  • Milk: Cow’s milk, almond, rice, hemp, coconut… the sky’s the limit!
  • Juice: Lots of juices like apple, orange or grape can add a little sweetness and change up the flavor of this strawberry banana smoothie recipe.
  • Yogurt: Greek yogurt or regular work. If you’re using unsweetened yogurt, you might like to add a squeeze of honey to sweeten it.
  • Just for Fun: Add in your favorites like chocolate syrup, almonds or peanut butter!
  • Ice: If you use fruit that is not frozen, you’ll want to add some ice to give it a frosty chill.

The Right Blender for Smoothies

There is no “wrong” blender for smoothies. You’ll want a blender that has a fairly strong motor and can easily break down ice or frozen fruit. Depending on the other uses and frequency of use, a blender may or may not be an item you’d like to splurge on.

My favorite picks…

Over $100

Under $100

  • The Ninja Blender is a great price for a blender and perfect if you’re looking for a solid blender under $100! This blender has great reviews on Amazon (and at the time of posting this recipe it was on for about $68) with great reviews!

Under $30

  • If you don’t blend a ton, it wouldn’t make sense to invest in an expensive appliance. Consider a simple hand blender (many can blend ice/frozen) I use mine to blend soups like my 20 Minute Broccoli Cheese Soup.
  • I also have a magic bullet blender (I’ve used mine about a million times) that’s perfect for smoothies, blending spices and I even use it to make fresh bread crumbs.

  1. How many ounces does one serving hold? I recently purchased the Ninja Fit Single-Serve Blender with Two 16oz Cups – QB3001SS, so I was wondering if it’ll fit or if I have to make it in a bigger blender and split it into the two cups.

    1. This recipe makes approximately 2½-3 cups, depending on your fruit so I don’t think it’ll fit into a 16oz blender. You can either make it in a bigger blender or for a single serving you can cut the recipe in half.

    1. Hi Danielle, this recipe is for 2 servings so it may not quite fit in a single serve blender. I would half the recipe in a single serve blender. I hope this helps!

  2. haven’t tried it yet but I’m looking forward to making it tomorrow morning. I have a question ……how
    many servings does this make? My blender is very much like the Ninja kind in size. Are your recipes based on a full size blender? ………or do I need to cut the recipe in half since I have the smaller type of blender.

  3. I loved this smoothie so much!!! When I did it, I din’t add any chia seeds, but I did add double the banana. Thank you for this wonderful smoothie. The only thing is I would like to try it with spinach or kale. Which one would be best do you think and how much of it?

    1. You’re welcome! A handful of either would work in this recipe. Spinach may be a bit milder to try at first. Enjoy Alyssa!

  4. I read this and wanted it. NOW! I didn’t have any yogurt. I added more banana to make up for it. I had farm fresh strawberries. I added frozen Maine blueberries for “ice”. Deeeelishus!!
