This strawberry banana smoothie is made with coconut milk which gives it not only a tropic flavor but makes it creamier.

On hot summer days this smoothie not only cools me off but if I close my eyes I can almost believe I am in a tropical paradise.

Both the strawberries and bananas give this smoothie plenty of sweetness, but if you want more you can customize it with add honey or sugar to taste.

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.

Can you use coconut milk instead of almond milk in smoothies?

Yes, you can use coconut milk instead of almond milk in smoothies. This gives it both a coconut flavor and makes it extra creamy.

Can you use coconut milk instead of coconut water in smoothies?

Yes, you can use coconut milk instead of coconut water in smoothies. This will make for a much creamier smoothie.

Can you use coconut cream instead of coconut milk in smoothies?

Yes, you can use canned coconut cream in smoothies instead of coconut milk. This will make for an even creamier smoothie.

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.
