When recommending recipes to anyone new to green smoothies, I always recommend Beginner’s Luck, but also any simple smoothie with familiar flavors. Strawberry banana smoothies are a favorite of many, which is why I wanted to create a healthy strawberry banana smoothie that was dairy-free and plant-powered.

What is The Best Time of Day To Drink a Green Smoothie?

We get this question a lot. The answer is simple: drink your smoothie when you feel like it best fits into your day.

Some of our team love a green smoothie as a breakfast meal replacement. Others drink a green smoothie once or twice a day as a snack.

If you do use a green smoothie to replace a meal, please read this post as a guide. You’ll want to add in extra protein and healthy fats to make your smoothie more filling.

Strawberry and Banana: A Smoothie Dream Team

Strawberries and bananas are both nutritional powerhouses, and the two flavors pair well together. Banana can be overpowering sometimes, but combined with strawberry, it’s almost like they become one flavor.

Bananas and strawberries are both low glycemic fruits. They contain heart healthy dietary fiber that also keeps the bowels moving smoothly. The vitamin C in both fruits helps the body better absorb the iron in the spinach. Both strawberries and bananas can help with weight management and blood sugar regulation.

Strawberries, particularly if you didn’t pick them fresh from your garden, can be on the tart side. The sweetness of the banana balances out the tartness just right. Bananas also make smoothies extra creamy.

And if you’re not a fan of bananas or have an allergy…bananas can easily be substituted with avocado or any of the suggestions found in this post.

    could i blend this in a nutribullet?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Sarah, our smoothies are meant to be blended in any blender out there! Many people in our community have and love Nutribullets. 🙂

  2. Amy says:

    Correct if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure bananas are high glycemic index. My trainer never wanted me eating these in the morning because of that. Hope this helps

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Amy,

      Bananas are actually known to be low on the GI scale and their GI value is only a 51.

      Hope that helps!
