Yes! This smoothie is a great option if you’re looking for something healthy to have in the morning. This recipe is filled with vitamins, protein, and anti-oxidants. Each ingredient will do its job to help your body and digestion.
- Don’t use all frozen fruit. If you were to use both frozen strawberries and bananaa, you’re likely to end up with a super thick texture more similar to my Blueberry Smoothie Bowl recipe. So instead, use frozen strawberries and a room temperature banana or vice versa.
- No need to add any sweetener. Some recipes call for a sweetener in a fruit smoothie. The sweetness in the strawberries and banana is plenty so there’s no need to add extra sugar.
- Make it with dairy or dairy-free. You can make this strawberry banana smoothie with dairy or dairy-free/vegan. You can also use regular milk/yogurt or other alternative milk products like almond, coconut, etc…
- Oats are optional. We prefer a more hearty breakfast smoothie, but you can leave the oats out as well.
- Don’t add ice. Using a frozen strawberries in the recipe keeps the drink cold, but it doesn’t water it down like using ice.
- Can I replace or add other fruits? When thinking of more fruits to add, you will want to think of fruits that pair well with strawberries and bananas. Some of my favorite additional fruits to have with this smoothie are kiwi, mango, blueberries, raspberry, and coconut. Experimenting is easy with this recipe on the kind of fruits that you prefer.
