How to Make a Strawberry Smoothie

If you’re new to making smoothies, no fear, it’s about as simple as it can get.

Strawberry Smoothie Ingredients

Here’s what you need in order to make the best strawberry smoothie recipe:

Frozen strawberries- we used frozen strawberries, but fresh will work as well. We prefer frozen strawberries so that you don’t have to use any ice!

Banana- either a fresh or frozen banana will work for this recipe! PS: check out our tutorial on how to freeze bananas for smoothies.

Greek yogurt- feel free to use any kind you wish. We went with a nonfat plain Greek yogurt because it’s packed with protein and lower in calories.

Pro tip: to keep this smoothie 100% plant-based, use a dairy-free yogurt!

Orange Juice: when picking out an orange juice for this recipe, we recommend a no-added-sugar, 100% orange juice. If you’re not an OJ fan, feel free to use any kind of milk or even water!

We went back and forth whether or not to use yogurt in this recipe and at the end of the day, a strawberry smoothie with yogurt is just better than one without! It adds a bit of a tang and extra protein. We also tested this recipe with different kinds of liquid such as almond milk, normal cow’s milk, and water and orange juice won over and over again.
