Healthy Strawberry Smoothie

Healthy strawberry smoothie recipe with frozen strawberry, almond milk, banana and a secret ingredient for a nutrition punch. Most kids love strawberries and can make a smoothie on their own. So I told my kids to start making smoothies after school. To fill up their bellies until dinner while we are working. Working from home is a challenge. There is always a distraction. Especially after kids get home from school. Many things go South.

And this easy and delicious strawberry smoothie is on their list. And my boys absolutely love our family’s staple green smoothie recipe. Like love it! Because it is full of sweet mango. We just turned it into a video last week. Now you have no excuses. 90% your kids will love it too!

Quick Facts About Strawberries

  • Strawberries are high in vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and contain antioxidants.
  • Strawberries may decrease the risk of heart disease, reduce spikes in blood sugar.
  • Strawberry allergy is very common among children. I was one of them.
  • Try to buy only organic strawberries. Strawberries are sprayed with pesticides. Their skin is very thin. It absorbs all the chemicals. You can’t wash them off.

What Goes Well with Strawberries in a Smoothie?

You can add a handful of other fruit and vegetables from the list. Don’t add too much, especially if fruit is frozen. 1/2 cup should be good.

  • Pineapple
  • Peach
  • Mango
  • Spinach

Other Substitutions

  • Cow’s milk: Substituting almond milk with cow’s milk makes smoothie taste more like a milkshake. Our family did not love it in this recipe. And we love ice cream. Not sure why.
  • Other plant based milk: Use any of your favorite milk instead of almond. For example, rice, soy, coconut, hemp etc. Keep in mind sweetened milk makes smoothie sweeter.
  • Yogurt: Yogurt adds protein. If you would like to replace milk with mostly yogurt, start with 1 cup yogurt and 1/2 cup almond milk. Adjust consistency with more milk.
  • Fresh strawberries: If you use fresh strawberries, try to use frozen banana or other frozen fruit. It will help keep the smoothie of thicker consistency rather than flavored juice.

How to Make a Good Strawberry Smoothie

  2. Add liquids first. If you add frozen fruit first your blender will struggle.
  3. Don’t skip flaxseed or chia seeds. Both prevent smoothie from separating without changing the taste. Not to mention the nutrition punch.
  4. Measure ingredients. Your smoothie will be tasty and will spin in the blender. Add more or less and strawberries will get stuck.
