Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie

Strawberry Banana green smoothie

I’ve made this Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie almost every day for the past year. I guess I am kinda like my dad— when you find something that works, why change it up? It only has five ingredients (and one being water), doesn’t take much food prep, and tastes very yummy (seriously). My kids even ask for it! It’s such a proud moment as a parent when kids are craving fruits and veggies over processed foods. It doesn’t happen every day, but it does happen a LOT! Hope you enjoy my tried and true green smoothie recipe!

Strawberry Banana Blueberry Spinach Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie

Course: Breakfast
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 2 servings
We've combined four of our favorite fruits for this smoothie - and it's a yummy one! The flavors are bright and sweet, and it's full of fruity goodness. As far as nutrition goes, this smoothie offers up a bundle of antioxidants from vitamin C-rich oranges and strawberries, to potassium-loaded bananas, and anthrocyanin-packed blueberries. And don't forget all the vitamin K and iron in the spinach.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups spinach fresh
  • 2 oranges peeled and seeded
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup strawberries*
  • 1 cup blueberries*
  • 2 bananas

Instructions

  1. Blend spinach, orange juice and water until smooth.
  2. Next add the remaining fruits and blend again.

Recipe Notes

*Use frozen strawberries and/or blueberries to make smoothie cold. **You can also use 3/4 cup water and 3/4 cup orange juice in place of the oranges and 1/2 cup water.

 Tip: Thanks to the blueberries, this green smoothie is more like a purple smoothie, which is great for kids and those who are afraid of the “green” color.

    This is a great smoothie recipe. I am not familiar with the apps you mentioned for tracking nutritional info but I tried inputting the ingredients into My Fitness Pal online since they had a food search option, and since this recipe is good for 2 servings, it looks like this will run about 1000 calories per serving. It’s delicious but wow, this is good for 1.5 meals!

      Hi Kathy,

      We personally don’t count calories or focus on the numbers too much, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have this information.

      Three great resources for tracking nutritional information are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.
