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

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x
  • Category: Breakfast

Description

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. 


Scale

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.


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 my daily “go to” green smoothie. For anyone that is not sure if they can do a daily green smoothie this is the one that will make you a believer and hook you healthy forever.

    Do you think it’s to much sugar in this one ? Sounds good!

    Hi Roely,

    Great question! Each smoothie has 3 cups of fruit in it, and it is recommended that an adult has 1.5 to 2 cups of fruit a day. When you drink 16oz of our green smoothie recipe you will be meeting, or just under your daily intake for fruit. If you feel like that is too much fruit, feel free to do 2 cups of fruit in each smoothie with 3 cups of leafy greens. Hope that helps. 🙂

    Hi lovely ladies,

    I have just downloaded your recipes cards and they all look yummy and cannot wait to try them. Being from the UK, I’m having a little issue with the measurements as I know that ‘a cup’ can change depending on what you’re measuring! Also, your recipe cards – how much smoothie does the recipes make?

    Hey!
    I did this one today and it was delicious, it just had a lot of short, stringy pieces (I’m thinking from the oranges or medium pulp oj I added). I also used kale instead of spinach, so I don’t know what caused this for sure. Is there any way to smooth it out more, or is that how it is no matter what?

    FYI I have a new Blendtec, so any tricks or use recommendations would be appreciated!

  7. SGS Rawkstar

    December 14th, 2015 at 11:39 am

    Hi Ashley,

    You’re right!! The pieces you found in your green smoothie were probably from the oranges. A great way to breakdown the oranges in your green smoothie is to blend them first with your leafy greens + liquid base. Once blended to a juice consistency add your remaining ingredients.

    Hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi, Well first off, I love all of the green smoothies I’ve tried so far and me as well my family appreciate the weekly recipes to try out. But the truth is, I absolutely suck at conversions, so what would be the amount of ingredients put in the blender for a single serving of this recipe?

    Thanks

  13. SGS Rawkstar

    December 27th, 2015 at 11:58 am

    Hi Nadia,

    We’ve got you covered! Here’s a single serving version of our Strawberry, Banana, Blueberry, Spinach Smoothie:

    1 cup spinach, fresh
    1 orange, peeled + seeded
    1/4 cup water
    1/2 cup strawberries
    1/2 cup blueberries
    1 banana

    Enjoy! 🙂

    I’m new to smoothies. Would it be possible to list the nutritional information for this recipe? Since I’m just starting out, I’d like to keep track of the vitamins etc… that I am drinking during the course of the week.

  15. SGS Rawkstar

    December 30th, 2015 at 12:29 pm

    Hi Audrey,

    Thanks for reaching out! We personally don’t list the calories or nutritional information with our recipes. 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 nutritional information. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    Just made this, although I made mine a little different. I used 2 cups of a berry mix (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries) and only one very ripe banana. The smoothie came out perfect! It’s one of the best smoothies I’ve ever had. It kind of reminds me of a fruit roll-up. Thank you for a great base recipe for my smoothies!

    WOW!! I’m on day 3 of having a green smoothie (definitely not dieting, but loving how tasty these are!) and I just made this one. I feel like I can sip fast enough. I only made it with one banana since I ate one with breakfast but still super yummy. I would eat this as a popsicle in the summer! I do have a question. How long can a smoothie be saved in the fridge? I usually separate into two servings and save one serving in a mason jar for the next day. I wanted to plan ahead and make several. Have you tried that? How did it work? Thank you!!!

    Hi there
    What a beautiful website. I heard you speaking on some podcasts and had to come over and check out your bog/site. Really impressive. One thing I’m a bit confused over though. For a kids smoothie you are recommending one serve 1 orange and one banana and 1 cup of berries. Taking average sized pieces of fruit this comes to over 45 teaspoons of sugar. Even if we go for conservative amount and assume small size fruit it would still be unlikely to be less than 30 grams of sugar. And the greens on the smoothie is just 1 cup. Which when wilted down is really more like 1/8 cup. I’m interested to understand how you consider this to be a “green smoothie” and advisable for a child given current recommendations as to sugar intake. (And for sure I realise this is not “added sugar” but indeed the body will treat all sugar the same once it’s broken down.) Interested in your reply. Thanks very much. Claire

    March 21st, 2016 at 11:17 am

    Hi Claire,

    Great question! When sharing green smoothies with little ones we suggest starting with an 8oz snack size serving. The majority of our recipes have 3 cups of fruit in it. This recipe has additional fruit because we’re relying on the two oranges to provide fresh juice as our liquid base (Great for introducing little taste buds to green smoothies). For adults, when you drink 16oz of our green smoothie recipe you will be meeting, or just under your daily intake for fruit. If you feel like any of our recipes have too much fruit, feel free to do 2 cups of fruit in each smoothie with 3 cups of leafy greens. Hope that helps. 🙂

    While yes, the main source of calories in fruit is sugar – those sugars are surrounded by fibre in the fruits cellular structure. Therefore you do not get the same surge of fructose that would take a hit on the liver or an increase of glucose that would cause a surge in insulin. It’s the added sugars that are the problem.

    Is it okay to use frozen fruits from the supermarket? I like to buy a big bag of frozen strawberries and blueberries and blend them together with my greens. Just not sure if I’m losing the health benefits though by buying frozen fruits.

  38. SGS Rawkstar

    March 28th, 2016 at 6:24 pm

    Hi Roly,

    Great question! You can definitely blend with frozen fruit! We actually suggest adding at least one frozen fruit to ensure your smoothie is creamy + chilled to perfection!
