How to Make a Smoothie

  1. Fill your blender with fruit, almond milk, ice, and a little sweetener if you like.
  2. Blend!
  3. If your smoothie is too tart, add a little more honey or maple syrup

Smoothie Recipe Tips

  • For a thick smoothie, use frozen fruit.
  • For a thicker smoothie, start with less almond milk, you can always add more as you blend.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe Variations

I like to make this smoothie with a mix of strawberries and raspberries, but if you prefer to go fully in the strawberry banana direction, use 2 cups strawberries instead of strawberries and raspberries, and use a full banana instead of a half. This strawberry banana smoothie recipe works with fresh or frozen fruit, just cut back on the ice if you opt for frozen fruit. I encourage you to try adding the optional basil or mint – they add a lovely freshness to this drink.

This refreshing strawberry banana smoothie recipe comes together in seconds in the blender. Perfect for hot summer afternoons or as a healthy breakfast.
