Possibly the most well known at-home smoothie flavor is Strawberry Banana. It’s pretty hard to mess this recipe up as long as you have a base (milk, juice, etc.) and the fruit. Its simplicity is what makes it so easy to customize or recreate!
While using fresh strawberries sounds like it would be the better option, I actually recommend using frozen whole strawberries. If you use fresh you’ll also have to add ice to make the smoothie have the right texture (and to keep it cold), and ice will most likely make the smoothie taste watered down. The frozen strawberries have the same flavor and they’re like fruit ice cubes.
As far as the base goes, you can use any liquid from coconut milk to orange juice, it just depends on what kind of smoothie you like. In this smoothie I actually like to use a little bit of both (mostly almond milk with some pineapple juice to brighten it up).

For this recipe you will need a blender/food-processor. This recipe makes 1 large 24oz. smoothie (or 2 small servings).
- 1 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 large banana (or 2 medium bananas)
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
Add all of the ingredients into the blender and begin by pulsing. Continue blending until desired consistency is reached (add more strawberries for a thicker smoothie or more milk for a thinner smoothie).
Serve with a straw and enjoy!
