If you love fruit and you enjoy making smoothies, you’ll adore my strawberry blueberry smoothie recipe. This awesome recipe contains my favorite base ingredients, which are frozen, unsweetened strawberries and low-fat milk. I throw in blueberries because they combine with strawberries so well!
This smoothie has tons of rich flavor and it’s definitely a healthy choice. In addition, it’s just so easy to make, so you can whip it up in mere minutes.
*makes five servings
- one cup low-fat milk
- five cups of frozen and unsweetened strawberries

- two tbsps. honey
- one medium-sized, ripe banana – not frozen
As you can see, this recipe doesn’t require very many ingredients. This is why it’s so easy to make. It is loaded with healthy fruit and other wholesome ingredients. Honey balances the tartness of the berries beautifully and yogurt adds lots of creaminess.
How to Prepare
Making this yummy and fruity concoction will be so easy. Simply throw (or pour) every ingredient into the blender and then blend everything until its’ combined. In my blender it take just a minute or two at the most. The blender I use and my recommendations here. Once you’ve blended the ingredients, it will be time to enjoy it.
Drink it yourself and refrigerate what you don’t use (try to drink it within a day or so of refrigeration!) or share it with family and friends. You won’t need to add any ice, so this is really a simple and convenient way to access great taste and nutrition, whenever you want it.

Now is the right time to treat yourself to an exceptional smoothie! Once you get the hang of making this one, you’ll probably turn to it again and again, like I do, in order to get your allotment of fruit, carbs and protein.
If you feel like it, adding some extras will be fun. There are so many ways to customize basic smoothie recipes like this one. For example, if you train and want more protein from every smoothie, adding a healthy protein powder may work well. Bear in mind that you will need to adjust liquids accordingly in order to keep the smoothie at the right consistency. Other add-ons to consider are Chia seeds and/or shots of wheatgrass.
Basically, the only limitation is your own culinary imagination! So, why not whip up a tasty smoothie today? More strawberry recipes available here.
