Strawberry and banana is such a classic favorite flavor combination, just like the favorite peanut butter banana smoothie is.

How do I make a strawberry banana smoothie?

First, add your milk of choice to the bottom of a high speed blender.

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.

Adding the milk first to the blender will help it blend easier.

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!

Tip for blending a strawberry banana smoothie

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.

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.

If you don’t care about thickness, you can make this more easily by splashing in some extra milk to help the blender out.

It’s really whatever works for you!

What milk to use in your strawberry banana 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.

Dairy free or dairy – it won’t make much of a difference.

No need to run to the store, just use what you have!

I hope you love this recipe as much as our family did!

Easy and delicious thick strawberry banana smoothie recipe with just 3 ingredients.

Prep Time 2 minutes
Total Time 2 minutes


  • 4 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen banana chunks
  • 1 cup milk of choice (see notes)


  1. Add the milk to the bottom of your high speed blender
  2. Add strawberries and frozen bananas on top of the milk
  3. 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.

Your recipe looks delicious! I make a similar smoothie with a hand blender. It takes quicker but gives the same thick texture. I microwave the strawberries for thirty seconds and add a fresh banana. The banana gives it a fresher, fruitier taste, frozen bananas taste sweeter. It goes into a 32 oz soup container and hand blended for a minute. Even easier!

Does the 41 Carbs mean for the whole three servings, or is that just for one serving?
