Strawberry Smoothie Recipe:

We love summer strawberries when they are at their peak of sweetness because they really shine in smoothies. There is nothing like a Strawberry Smoothie in the morning to give you a cool and refreshing jolt before your day starts. Since the main ingredient is strawberries, it has an intense strawberry flavor that our whole family loves.

This has the classic taste of a strawberry banana smoothie, but you can change up your smoothie based on what you have on hand. For a different flavor twist, check out the Apricot Strawberry Smoothie, or our popular Strawberry Cherry Smoothie Recipe. You could also serve this as a smoothie bowl with fun toppings.

Ingredients for Strawberry Smoothies:

  • Strawberries: The main ingredient! I love using fresh strawberries, but frozen strawberries are an option. Remove strawberry tops to preserve the pretty pink color.
  • Coconut Milk: My favorite base giving this smoothie a tropical flavor. See below for other options.
  • Bananas: A staple ingredient for many smoothies, gives a nice creamy texture.
  • Pineapple: More tropical flavor for this delicious treat and the frozen chunks serve as a flavorful “ice” so this smoothie is packed full of flavor!

How to Make a Strawberry Smoothie:

  1. Combine all of your ingredients in your blender.
  2. Blend until smooth and serve to the folks who have probably formed a line behind you.

Smoothie Pro Tip: Be sure to put the liquid ingredients in first, and then the frozen ingredients. The liquid helps with the blending process and prevents your blender from locking up on the hard frozen fruits!

Can I use a Different Kind of Milk?

Smoothies are so versatile! You can make them using just about any milk or liquid base. My favorite option is to use Coconut Milk for Strawberry Smoothies, which adds a slight tropical taste and is a great dairy-free option if you have allergies or other health concerns.

Other liquid options include:

  • Regular Milk: Creamy traditional smoothie base
  • Nut Milks: Almond, Cashew, etc – add a nice nutty flavor and are a great dairy-free option
  • Fruit Juice: An extra punch of sweetness without needing to add sugar
  • Water: If you are counting those calories!

Can I use Frozen Strawberries for Smoothies?

Frozen strawberries work great for smoothies so you can enjoy strawberry smoothies year-round. Using frozen fruit in your smoothies helps keep them chilled and thick. If we have leftover fruit or a bumper crop of berries, we often store them in freezer-safe bags to make a quick smoothie another day.

How to Hull Strawberries:

The hull is the green leafy cap at the top of a strawberry. We hull strawberries to keep the color consistent in the smoothie. Hulling a strawberry is easy – using a small pairing knife, make a circular cut around the top, aiming towards the center to remove the top like a cork.

A strawberry huller makes this job really quick and easy with minimal waste since you remove the hull with one circular motion and you don’t have to cut away any portion of the strawberry flesh.

    My 8 year old loves this recipe! She can help throw everything in the blender & is learning about healthy foods & wants to tell her friends at school about it! I also love that it’s cheaper than Dairy Queen!

      Hi Joyce, yes you can actually use fruit juice. I mention that in this part of the recipe Can I use a Different Kind of Milk?. I hope that helps.
