Ingredients 

Blink, and you might miss them! You only need four ingredients to send your taste buds to strawberry heaven. 

  • Milk- Every smoothie needs a liquid. Milk is the perfect choice. Any milk works in this recipe, from low-fat, skim, whole, or even plant-based milk. 
  • Greek Yogurt- You can use any style of yogurt, but Greek is best. Greek yogurt is higher in protein and much thicker than traditional yogurt. 
  • Banana- Adding a banana amps up the creaminess factor. If you want a super-sweet smoothie, use an ultra-ripe banana.
  • Frozen Strawberries- Fresh is not always the best. Frozen strawberries are ripe and help thicken this smoothie. 

How to Make Strawberry Smoothie

Can you turn on your blender? Then, you have the skills needed for a strawberry smoothie. 

It only takes a few minutes to whip those strawberries into creamy bliss. 

1. Add ingredients to the blender. Add milk, Greek yogurt, banana, and strawberries into the blender. 

2. Blend. Set the blender to a low setting and blend for 1-2 minutes. It should be thick and creamy. 

3. Pour. Pour the smoothie into a glass, and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

Follow these quick tips to become a smoothie pro. 

These tricks help you create the perfect consistency you can sip through a straw!

  • Only add one frozen component. You can add frozen strawberries or a frozen banana, but not both. If you use all frozen fruit, it will be more like a sorbet.
  • Do NOT add ice! Strawberries and bananas are delicately sweet. Ice will water down those flavors. If you want a thicker smoothie, add more frozen fruit. 
  • Liquids, first. Always add the milk first to prevent a log jam in your blender. It creates a perfectly smooth treat, and the strawberries will not get stuck in the blades. 

Variations 

Want to jazz up your frozen treat with flavor and nutrition? 

Check out some of these stellar variations:

  • Make it dairy-free. For a vegan treat, it’s easy to swap out the dairy. Reach for plant-based milk like coconut or almond milk and vegan yogurt. Or, swap out milk for juice, like orange juice. 
  • Try a peanut butter and jelly smoothie. The strawberries serve as the J. Now, all you need is the PB. Toss in two tablespoons of peanut butter (or almond butter) to create PB&J in smoothie form. You can also use peanut butter protein powder! 
  • Need more fiber in your life? You can transform this sweet treat into a fantastic breakfast with a few grains. Add quick oats or wheat bran for added protein and fiber. 
  • Create a post-workout treat. Adding a scoop of protein powder is a quick and easy way to make a protein-packed smoothie. Use vanilla protein powder to keep the strawberry taste. Or use chocolate for a chocolate-covered strawberry smoothie. 
  • Add more fruit! No law says you can’t add more fruit. Toss in all your favorite fruit like blueberries, pineapple, apples, pears, or peaches.

How to Store 

This recipe makes one serving, so you won’t likely have leftovers. But if you can’t finish the whole thing, you can easily store it in the fridge. 

Storing in the refrigerator. 

  • Place leftovers in an airtight container with a secure lid. You can keep your smoothie in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Stir it before eating.  

Storing in the freezer. 

  • Yes, you can freeze those leftovers! Pour leftovers into ice cube trays and pop them in the freezer. 
  • When ready for a sweet treat, pop the smoothie cubes into the blender. You may need to add more milk or let them thaw a little first.
