Tips to make the beast strawberry banana greek yogurt smoothie
- Don’t add sugar- I have seen many smoothie recipes that call for extra sugar / sweetener. It kinda baffles me though… Why would you need sugar if you are using fresh fruits as the base of this healthy strawberry smoothie. If you follow the exact steps to this recipe your smoothie should be perfectly sweetened without any added sugar.
- Don’t use ice – I am purposefully using frozen fruits to avoid using ice. I always feel like ice waters down my smoothies and that’s not something I like. Using frozen fruits allows your smoothie to be thick and creamy with strong fruit flavors.
- Make it dairy free- If you are lactose intolerant or are simply vegan, you can make this smoothie fit your needs by using oat milk, soy milk, cashew milk or even almond milk as well as a dairy free yogurt to maintain the creaminess of this strawberry banana smoothie.
