How to Make A Strawberry Smoothie:

Making a strawberry smoothie is a very easy process. This is the formula that I use when making any of my smoothies! It's a simple combination of high protein greek yogurt, frozen fruit, banana, and liquid. If you're making this into a single serving smoothie, I always go for 1 cup of frozen fruit, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup liquid, and 2 tbsp of greek yogurt. This is my personal favorite ratio and formula for making a smoothie, and it's great because you can customize it every time depending on what you have on hand. 

The Best Blender for Smoothies: 

A few years ago I received this KitchenAid Blender for a blog project. We have blown through several blenders in our 10 years of marriage and this one has exceeded all of my expectations and has held up over many smoothies and recipes over the years. I think you really can't go wrong between a KitchenAid, Vitamix, or Blendtec, but after going through several bad blenders, it's of my opinion that this is an appliance to invest some money into.

Ingredients for a Strawberry Smoothie:

  • 1 cup Frozen Strawberries
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 2 tbsp Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice

Variations for this Strawberry Smoothie Recipe:

If you're looking for ways to switch up this recipe, try swapping the milk out of the recipe and using one of your favorite juices! I love adding juices to my smoothies because they add great flavor to the drink! Some of my go-to juices are apple or orange juice, but you can really get as creative as you'd like!

You could also add in some protein powder to add some more nutrients to this smoothie. Protein powder is always a great add in for smoothies because it boosts up the satiety factor in the drink and allows you to feel fuller for longer. If you're going to be having this smoothie as a meal instead of a snack, this might be a great option for you!

Storing Strawberry Smoothies:

Storing smoothies is really never recommended. They are best when consumed immediately after making them. If you're going to save some leftovers though, they should be sealed in the fridge in a mason jar with an airtight lid for 1-2 days max. There will be separation when you go to drink the smoothie. This is normal and safe. Simply shake the smoothie well to blend everything together before drinking.
