Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe with Yogurt
Find out how to make my kids’ favorite simple healthy Strawberry Banana Smoothie recipe with yogurt or almond milk.
Strawberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients
- With yogurt: I prefer plain dairy free Greek style yogurt like Kite Hill so this smoothie isn’t overly sweet. My daughter prefers vanilla yogurt. Yogurt has the added benefit of probiotics.
- Without yogurt: If you don’t like yogurt, you can use unsweetened almond milk. Use just enough to turn the blender.

How to Add More Nutrition to your Strawberry Banana Smoothie
- I add a big handful of baby spinach for a green strawberry banana smoothie. You can’t taste the spinach, so it’s an easy way to get your greens in.
- I often add about 1/4 cup of oats to my daughter’s smoothie to make it more substantial.
- Add a tablespoon of flax or chia seeds for more protein and Omega-3s.
- Add a scoop of unflavored protein powder. I find vanilla is too sweet for my taste here.
How to Serve or Freeze Your Strawberry Banana Smoothies
- Pour your smoothies into glasses and drink with a glass straw.
- Make it extra thick by using less liquid and more ice/frozen fruit and serve as a smoothie bowl.
- Freezer for later. Check out this post on How to Freeze Smoothies.

Nutrition information was calculated using almond milk and no toppings or additions.
For bright fresh flavor, we sometimes add a whole peeled small orange (as seen in the video). This also thins the smoothie.
