Any number of great things can be put into a smoothie from fresh fruit, to juice or even dairy-free milk. Change the variations to make a creation that is not only good for you but tasty too (my kids used to consider them dessert)!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients

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

  • Strawberries: I try to use frozen strawberries for a nice thick smoothie. Other types of berries can be added in place.
  • Banana: Bananas add a natural sweetness, I prefer frozen bananas if I have them on hand. As bananas ripen, keep a couple in the freezer for the thickest smoothies.
  • Milk: Cow’s milk, almond milk, oat milk, or coconut milk … the sky’s the limit!
  • Yogurt: Greek yogurt or regular work. If you’re using plain Greek yogurt, add a bit of honey or sweetener.
  • Ice: If the fruit is not frozen, add some ice to give it a frosty chill.

Add the ingredients to a blender and give it a whirr adding more liquid as needed.

Variations

Change up this classic strawberry banana smoothie recipe with the following variations.

  • Add orange juice in place of milk.
  • For a green smoothie, add in a handful of greens and blend with the liquid until smooth before adding the fruit. Try kale or spinach.
  • Try adding different fruit like blueberries, or pineapple.
  • Boost the nutrition with flax seeds, protein powder, or chia seeds.

The Best Blenders 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. If you make a lot of smoothies or use a blender, it might be worth splurging on a high speed blender (I love this one). I also love the magic bullet for an easy on the go breakfast!

  1. I haven’t made this yet but how much ice would you recommend adding since I’ll be using fresh fruit? I’ll likely use a little less milk so it’s a thicker smoothie :)

    1. Start with a couple of cubes and add until it is as thick as you like Kelsey. Enjoy!

  2. This is an absolutely delicious smoothie! So easy to make with an at home blender and tastes exactly like a high quality Panera Bread smoothie. I’m so happy with how it turned out!

    1. Since this recipe is made from fresh fruit and yogurt I would suggest checking the expiry date on your dairy products if it tasted bad.

  3. One of my favorites so far. This smoothie is full of flavor and very filling. It is so good on a scorching hot day as a meal replacement. I dont need a snack between meals for sure! Great option for those like me who have a sweet tooth, but need to lose some pounds!!5 stars

  4. I tweaked this a bit by using 1 1/2 bananas along with a tad more milk (to make up for the extra banana) and a couple tbsp of sugar. Turned out beautifully.

  5. I tried this smoothie and it was so good! My blender isn’t that strong so I had to add more milk, otherwise it was a great way to start my morning! Highly recommended.5 stars

  6. Great recipe! Can you please tell me where the glasses are from that you have the smoothies pictured in? I’m on the hunt for some just like those. Thanks!5 stars

    1. Hi Stephanie, we picked these up a while ago at a local book store similar to Barnes & Noble!

  7. Hi Holly, I use Blendtec blender to crush smoothie with a cube of ice. Very smooth to take smoothie and crushes well.5 stars

  8. I love making smoothies like this and I have figured out a few hints. If you let the bananas get a little over ripe, they are much sweeter. You can also freeze your bananas and strawberries before hand and leave out the ice. I love it this way, so you never get those occassional little chunks of ice!

      1. Holly, how many ounces does this recipe make? Don’t want to over-load my small blender thingy. Thank you.

      2. It’ll make approximately 2½-3 cups, depending on your fruit. Enjoy Kathie!
