Perfect Strawberry Smoothie

It’s strawberry season! We’ve been eating them nonstop–it’s time to drink them, too! Take full advantage of strawberries’ tartness and sweetness by putting them in a delicious smoothie. We use dairy from market–either cow or goat milk works amazingly in this recipe from the Recipe Rebel. There are so many ways to customize this smoothie recipe: you can add protein powder, flax seeds, other fruits, and more. Try adding peanut butter or a little cocoa powder to take this smoothie to a dessert-like level! This recipe is best using frozen strawberries–see our recent guide on how to properly freeze those delicious, fresh strawberries you get at market!



  • 1 cup low fat milk (or juice)
  • 1/2 cup strawberry Greek yogurt
  • 1 frozen banana cut in chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries


Place ingredients in a blender in the order written.

Puree until smooth, adding a bit more milk or water if the smoothie is too thick to blend. Taste, and add a bit of honey if desired to sweeten.
