There’s nothing better than a classic strawberry banana smoothie! This one has Greek yogurt for an added protein boost.

I love smoothies, but it seems like every time I try to just throw ingredients in the blender, I’m left with a subpar smoothie with an off color. Can you relate?

That’s why it’s key to have a few tried and true basic smoothie recipes that always taste yummy – go-to recipes that you can build off of if you’re feeling creative.

This strawberry banana smoothie recipe is a great example. The combo of strawberry and banana is such a classic and tastes so delicious on it’s own, but there’s definitely room to experiment and make it your own if you want!

How to Make a Strawberry Banana Smoothie

It doesn’t get much easier than this! You only need a few simple ingredients:

  • frozen banana – be sure to peel the banana before freezing
  • strawberries – fresh or frozen will work
  • milk – I like to use unsweetened almond milk, but any milk will do
  • yogurt – adding a little yogurt boosts the protein and makes this smoothie more filling
  • honey – this is optional, but it does help balance out the tart yogurt flavor

Ingredients to make a healthy strawberry banana smoothie. Fresh strawberries, a bowl of sliced frozen banana, a bowl of greek yogurt, a teaspoon of honey, and a jar of almond milk.

After you gather your smoothie ingredients, just add them to your blender and blend until everything is combined and the smoothie is super creamy.

Once everything is blended and smooth, simply pour your smoothie into a glass and enjoy! I love serving mine with a stainless steel straw.

How Much Sugar is in a Strawberry Banana Smoothie?

Because strawberry banana smoothies are mostly fruit, they do tend to have a good amount of sugar. This homemade strawberry banana smoothie has 19 grams of sugar (without the honey). This is natural sugar (coming from the fruit and yogurt) and 19 grams is way less than most smoothies you can order at a smoothie shop. For instance, the Starbucks Strawberry Banana Smoothie has 58 grams of sugar! The daily sugar intake recommendation for an average adult is about 25 grams of sugar day, even if it’s coming from natural sources. Just something to be aware of!

As I mentioned before, you should skip the honey if you want to keep this smoothie lower in sugar. And feel free to add in protein powder to amp up the protein if you are enjoying this for breakfast or as a post-workout snack.
