Strawberry smoothie ingredients
Here’s what you need to make the best strawberry smoothie recipe:
Frozen Strawberries: We used frozen strawberries, but fresh strawberries also work. We prefer frozen strawberries so you don’t have to use ice. Check out our strawberry freezing tutorial.
banana: You can use either a fresh or frozen banana for this recipe! Check out our tutorial on how to freeze bananas for smoothies.
greek yogurt: Greek yogurt adds a decent amount of protein and makes your smoothie extra creamy. Feel free to use any style you’d like. We went for plain Greek yogurt, but vanilla or strawberry would also work.
Pro Tip: To keep this smoothie 100% plant-based, use a non-dairy yogurt!
orange juice: The way to that cafe-worthy taste is the orange juice! We love the taste and boost of vitamin C. Be sure to use 100% orange juice with no added sugar.
After testing many variations of this recipe, here’s what we found:
- Yoghurt Rocks: We’ve been debating whether or not to use yogurt in this recipe, and at the end of the day, a strawberry smoothie with yogurt is just better than one without! It adds a bit of flavor and extra protein.
- Orange juice is important: We also tested this recipe with a variety of liquids such as almond milk, regular cow’s milk, and over-the-counter water and orange juice.
