Two Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipes, One With a (Green) Twist

Strawberry smoothie recipes are some of my favorites. Unfortunately, if you search online, you find mostly recipes with milk, yogurt or kefir, not the most healthful or compassionate ingredients.

Of course it’s easy to substitute dairy with non-dairy milk or yogurt. There are plenty of options available these days in stores, including almond, hemp, soy, rice and other milks (see the boring classic Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe later on).

However, what I want you to do, is to step it up a notch and take your strawberry smoothie into an entirely different dimension.

I mean, like super-power smoothie. Smoothie that will energize you and nourish you, like no other drink you had before!

It’s Time to Step it Up a Notch: Strawberry Banana Smoothie (with Kale)

(Warning: This is not your usual strawberry-banana-smoothie!)

This strawberry banana smoothie is chock-full of great-for-you stuff like green kale leaves, sweet strawberries and creamy bananas. It tastes healthy, sure, but in the most delicious way possible. Plus, you get your daily dose of fruits and greens in one beverage. It’s a winning combination!

I know what you’re thinking – kale? Really? Won’t that taste… weird?

You’d think it would, but the truth is you can barely taste it. The sweetness of the strawberries and banana is sufficient to counteract the bitterness of kale leaves, leaving you with only the leafy greens’ nutrients to enjoy.

So let’s stop wasting time and make it already, shall we?

If you are not convinced yet, would much rather stay away from greens, here is a classic strawberry banana smoothie recipe for you.


Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Smoothie


  • Strawberry Banana Smoothie
  • 10 oz fresh strawberries, stems removed
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk, or coconut water
  • Add a few drops of vanilla or almond extract (optional)
  • some sweetener such as agave nectar or stevia to taste


  1. Wash strawberries and remove banana peels. In a blender, process all ingredients until smooth. For a little extra flavor, a few drops of vanilla or almond extract may be used, but do not overdo as a few drops go a long way.

When using strawberries in your smoothies, it’s best to use organic, as strawberries are some of the highest produce when it comes to pesticide contamination. If they are not in season, buy frozen organic strawberries, or use other berries. Adding even just a few to your green smoothie will boost the nutrients and taste.
