Strawberry Banana Smoothie is nutritious and refreshing to have anytime of day. Strawberries are in season and they are huge and very sweet. Guess what, the best time to make my favorite classic Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
Banana is another fruit that is always available in our household. I’m very picky when it comes to eating bananas. Once I start seeing brown spots, it is too ripe for my taste but great to use for my smoothie.
I cut the bananas into smaller pieces, portioned and placed in the freezer. When craving strikes for any type of smoothie, I have frozen bananas ready to be used.
I prefer to use frozen bananas instead of adding ice cubes. It keeps my smoothie creamy and not watery.

The great thing about making your own smoothie, you can make it without sugar, you are able to choose the ingredients and you are saving money. They are not cheap but much cheaper if you make it yourself.
Most store-bought smoothie has sugar and I cannot stand it when it’s too sweet. Sometimes, I wonder if they taste their product for sweetness and flavor.
Tips in Making Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Check the bananas. Use the ones that are starting to show brown spots so they don’t go to waste and they are great for smoothies.
Cut some of bananas and keep it frozen. Don’t use all frozen bananas so your smoothie is not as thick but just enough creaminess. Do the same with strawberries.
Remove the leaves from strawberries and cut in half. Freeze some and the rest refrigerated.
When ready, add all the ingredients in your blender and use the smoothie program. In 30 seconds or so, your refreshing creamy smoothie is ready.
Note: You can make this Strawberry Banana Smoothie with yogurt or without. It is delicious even with only 3 ingredients.
Don’t add sugar since strawberry and banana are sweet. If you do, use agave as sugar substitute.
You can prepare your smoothie with dairy or non dairy. I am using milk but you can substitute almond milk or coconut milk, which ever you prefer.
