Banana and Strawberry Smoothie Ingredients
- Frozen strawberries: do not use fresh strawberries
- Frozen bananas: adds that super creamy texture to the smoothie
- Milk: any variety
How to make a Strawberry Banana Smoothie
First, add your milk of choice to the bottom of a high speed blender. Adding the milk first to the blender will help it blend easier.
You will need a high powered blender to make this recipe, as it is quite thick and a normal blender would most likely not be able to handle it.
You need a higher powered blender if you want that super thick texture. Add your frozen strawberries and bananas over the milk, and blend it all up!
This smoothie is super thick, so you might need to stop blending and use a spoon to mix it all around. Be patient, it will blend!
I gladly take a few extra minutes to help the smoothie blend instead of adding more milk. As far as smoothies go, the thicker the better in my opinion!
Banana Strawberry Smoothie Blending Tips
- Add your milk to the blender first: This will help make sure the blender works the best that it can, and has easy access to the liquid of the recipe.
- Add more milk if necessary: If you do not have a high speed blender, you may need to add more milk to make it not as thick so that the blender can handle mixing the smoothie up.
How to make a Smoothie thicker
- Use frozen fruit: frozen fruit is key to making a smoothie thicker
- Use less liquid: Adding too much liquid can make your smoothie watery. Start with less and add more if necessary.
- Use a high-speed blender: a high speed blender is important for getting a thick smoothie texture. Its sharp blades can blend frozen fruit without much liquid and turn it into a thick and creamy smoothie.
The best milk to use in a Banana and Strawberry Smoothie
Another question I have been asked is what type of milk I suggest. Any milk you have will work.
You won’t really notice a flavor difference, or much of one. I used 2% milk as it is what I had on hand, but you can use whole milk, almond milk, soy milk, whatever basic milk you have on hand.
Here are some other milks you can use:
- Soy milk
- Whole milk
- 2% milk
- Skim milk
- Coconut milk
- Oat milk
- Almond Milk
- Cashew Milk

- 4 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 cup frozen banana chunks
- 1 cup milk of choice (see notes)
- Add the milk to the bottom of your high speed blender
- Add strawberries and frozen bananas on top of the milk
- Blend on high speed until smooth, scraping down the edges if necessary
You will need a high speed blender for this recipe (I love my blendtec). Because this smoothie is so thick, it likely will not blend in a regular blender. If needed, add more milk to help the smoothie blend.
