This strawberry banana smoothie is an amazing blend of fruit that results in a tasty yet healthy drink. This smoothie is great for either breakfast or just as a snack.
As with every smoothie, you can add your extras to it if you feel like experimenting a little. A lot of people love to add ingredients such as protein powder or chia seeds. It’s entirely up to you! If you do add something like chia seeds in, then I would add one tablespoon to the standard recipe.
Another thing that I love to do with my smoothies is to add some whole fruit and some cereal. Using the smoothie as an alternative to milk, it certainly does make breakfast even more amazing.
The amount of variations is just insane for what you can do with strawberries. Just a couple of examples of some of my favorites is a strawberry & blueberry smoothie or even just a plain strawberry yogurt smoothie.

- You can use the low-fat varieties of yogurt and milk. You should still get a similar or the same result. Keep in mind some low-fat products have an increased amount of sugar in them so be sure to keep that in mind.
- If you like your smoothies ice-cold, then just add a few ice cubes to this recipe. A rough cup should be more than enough.
- Using frozen bananas will help for a thicker smoothie if that’s what you’re after. Freezing bananas is also a great way to keep them from going bad so you can use them when bananas aren’t as readily available.
