With any Smoothie recipe, This simple strawberry smoothie is versatile.
- Put your vegetables and a few handfuls of spinach or kale (like this Strawberry Spinach Smoothie).
- Increase extra protein by adding a teaspoon of flaxseed or a spoonful of your favorite protein powder.
- Use a spoonful of avocado to add some healthy fat and extra cream (or try this Apple Avocado Smoothie Or this blueberry Avocado Smoothie).

Whether you choose to blend this simple smoothie recipe, remember that the key to making a good smoothie (and art) is knowing when to stop.

How to make strawberry smoothie
Sometimes, like this frozen strawberry smoothie (and this Peach smoothie) Prove that less is more.
The ingredients couldn’t be simpler.
- StrawberryI like to use frozen ones (make sure they contain no added sugar) because they make the smoothies super thick and creamy. (If you like strawberries in smoothies, try this Greek Yogurt Smoothie next! )
- yogurt. We always have plain Greek yogurt as healthy snacks (like these Berry Parfait Yogurt Popsicle), and I also use it in many cooking. Making strawberry smoothies with yogurt can give them a smooth, creamy consistency and add protein.
- Honey + vanilla extract. Frozen strawberries themselves may be very bland. Spraying a drop or two of honey will sweeten the smoothie naturally without making it difficult to resist. Vanilla extract gives it a wonderful flavor.
- Almond butter. Adding nut butter to smoothies is an instant way to make them more satisfying. The healthy fats in almond butter will keep you full for a long time.
- milk. Use any kind you like to make a perfect and simple strawberry smoothie.Personally, I make my smoothie (like this Apple smoothie) Served with almond milk because I like its mild flavor and creamy consistency.
What about bananas?
You may have noticed that there is no common smoothie ingredient banana.
I chose to make strawberry smoothies without bananas because (wait a minute) I don’t have them on hand.
In addition, although I like the bananas in smoothies (they are naturally sweet and make the smoothies super thick), they sometimes taste better than other ingredients.I did this too Strawberry Mango Smoothie There are no bananas.
I hope every bite of strawberry smoothie tastes like pure strawberries. This can be done without bananas.
- Mix all ingredients in a blender.
- Beat until smooth and ready to eat. Please enjoy!
You don’t need an expensive blender to make a great smoothie!
If you plan to make a lot of smoothies, it may be worth investigating the options, but if not (or if the price tag is out of reach), you can still make delicious smoothies using a standard blender.I included some hints in the notes section of the recipe card
- Store. Store the blended strawberry smoothie in an airtight glass or jar for up to 1 day. Shake well, then enjoy.
Although you may have heard of it, smoothies can be stored for later use. For best results, store them in an airtight container for up to 1 day. The tighter the seal, the better, because it helps maintain the smoothie’s color, taste and nutrition.
Recommended tools for making this recipe
- High-power mixer. If you like making smoothies very much, then a high-power blender is worth the investment (otherwise, for ordinary blenders, This is a good choice.)
- Stainless steel straw. Everything you drink, from smoothies to iced coffee, tastes exceptionally cool and refreshing.
- Interesting glassware. Pour smoothies into interesting glasses, and it makes me feel like I drank it on a remote beach vacation.
I like my Vitamix blender. Its strength and durability are unparalleled. For many years, I have been using it to make smoothies, and it has no ingredients that it cannot handle.
Simple strawberry smoothie: You are a masterpiece!
Frequently asked questions
If you want to freeze a smoothie, I suggest you pour it into an ice cube tray. Then, put the required number of smoothie cubes into your cup and thaw.
No. The proportions used in this recipe make the strawberry the star of the show. Almond butter or peanut butter adds subtle richness and thickens the smoothie slightly. However, if PB&J Smoothie is the flavor you want, you can of course add extra nut butter to achieve this flavor.
Generally, I don’t recommend using fresh strawberries in smoothies because they will become thinner. For fresh strawberry smoothies, I suggest adding ice cubes to help the smoothies cool to the right temperature. Frozen bananas also help thicken the smoothie.
- 1 Cup Whole frozen strawberries (About 10 large/medium)
- 1/4 Cup Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 Spoon Almond butter Or choose peanut butter or nut butter
- 2 teaspoon Honey Plus additional flavors (optional)
- 1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 Cup Unsweetened almond milk
Mix all the ingredients in a powerful blender.
Stir until smooth. Enjoy immediately or place in an airtight jar (less air is better) and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
- Store: Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator (the less air the better!) It can be stored for up to 1 day. Stir or shake the jar to recombine, then enjoy.
- Vegan/Dairy-Free: Use non-dairy yogurt and maple syrup instead of honey. Or, put the yogurt outside and replace it with a few slices of bananas to get a creamy taste.
- tip: If you don’t have a powerful blender, I suggest you mix several strawberries at once. Using sliced strawberries instead of whole strawberries can help. You may also need to add more almond milk and periodically stop and stir the blender to help the smoothie blend.
