One of the most popular fruit flavor combinations is strawberry banana.

In fact, it may be the most popular smoothie flavor as well.

Since both the strawberries and bananas are naturally sweet, you don’t need any additional sweetener.

However, if you want to add honey to taste, you can.

HOW TO FREEZE FRUIT FOR SMOOTHIES

To make smoothies even easier, freeze fresh fruit into portions. 

Cut fruit into pieces and arrange, in one layer, on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Slide the baking sheet into the freezer and freeze until hard (two to three hours).

Smaller fruit like berries I often just freeze whole. It’s easier to do this if you know how much you’re going to need for a recipe and divine it up into bags.

Do Smoothies have Dairy?

Smoothies don’t have to, but yes, they usually contain dairy because they usually are made with milk and/or yogurt.

What can I put in a smoothie instead of milk?

What you need for a smoothie is not milk but actually a liquid. This means that all you have to do is switch the milk out for another liquid.

Can I make a strawberry banana smoothie with almond milk?

Yes, you make a strawberry banana smoothie with almond milk.

I recommend using an unsweetened barista styled almond milk.

Can I make a strawberry smoothie with coconut?

Yes, you can make a strawberry banana smoothie with coconut milk.

If you use coconut milk in a smoothie it will make it extra creamy and add a tropical flavor.

Can I make a strawberry banana smoothie with oat milk?

Yes, you can make a strawberry banana smoothie with oat milk.

I recommend a neutral flavored full fat oat milk but any oat milk will work.

Can I use water instead of milk to make a smoothie?

Yes, you can use water instead of milk for a smoothie.

However, it will be thinner than if you use something creamier like a barista styled almond milk, a full fat oat milk, or coconut milk.

What Type of Dairy Free Yogurt Should I use?

You should use a neutral or vanilla flavored dairy free yogurt.

Yogurt made from soy, almonds, coconut, and oats all will work fine here.

Can I leave out the yogurt?

Yes, but the smoothie will be less creamy if you do. If you want to leave out the yogurt replace it with more dairy free milk.

Make Ahead of Time

You can easily make this recipe ahead of time.

All you have to do is put all the ingredients in the blender except the milk (and oats of desired).

Blend it up until it is nice and smooth. Then pour the smoothie into a freezer safe resealable bag.

Once you’re ready to use the smoothie. Let it sit out until it’s defrosted enough to put into the blender.

Place the smoothie in the blender, add the milk and oats if desired, then blend until smooth again. Once it has a nice pourable consistency, put it in a cup, and serve.
