Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie in a mason jar with Blueberries

There was a time when I made this Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie almost every day for a 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).

It also uses ingredients that are easy to find all year round in the produce + freezer sections of most grocery stores. The key to make this healthy green smoothie habit stick, is making it easy and affordable. This Strawberry Banana Smoothie hits both of those on the head.

Kid-Friendly Healthy Recipe

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.

The pic above is of my daughter Clare when she was 3 years old. She would ask for this smoothie all the time! I get a little teary eyed seeing her this little— she started 5th grade this year!!! Now, my kids wanting a spinach smoothie doesn’t happen every day, but it does still happen a LOT! Hope you enjoy one of my tried and true green smoothie recipes!

The reason why I combine quite a few fruits into this smoothie is to make sure we’re getting a variety of vitamins and minerals. My whole goal with green smoothies is to treat them as a daily vitamin to keep our immune systems strong and our body healthy. It’s been 8 years of drinking these now, and we’re still going strong!

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

Here’s a few more plant-based recipes my kids love from the blog…


Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie

  • Prep Time: 4
  • Cook Time: 1
  • Total Time: 5
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Method: Blending
  • Cuisine: Plant-based


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. 



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


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


*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.

    So tasty! This was like an Orange Julius but way better for you. Packed a yummy punch! The only problem I had was that I should have let it all thaw a bit more before blending. Had to add a little extra water. Once things got going it was great though.

  2. Heather says:

    Very tasty smoothie

  3. Karole T. says:

    Delicious. Just sweet enough and filling.

    Very tasty!

    A great way to start day 1 of the 7-day autumn smoothie challenge – nutritious, easy and yummy. I love that it meets almost 1/2 of my recommended fiber intake for the day.

  7. KARTIK BHATIA says:

    Nice sweet drink

  8. Phyllis Lipford says:

    Enjoyed my Strawberry Banana smoothie for breakfast and mid-morning snack, yum! #simplegreensmoothies

  9. Lillian says:

    Excellent flavors. I am delighted with this smoothie. Thanks a lot.

  10. Tasha Burt says:

    This is a great smoothie to start off with very smooth and citrusy! Love it!

  11. Raquel Galindo says:

    Loved the flavor combination and perfect on the sweetness level. Will definitely make again

  12. Raquel Galindo says:

    Loved the flavor combination and perfect sweetness!!!

  13. Valerie W says:

    I love fresh oranges in my smoothies, but rarely use them. Glad to try something different.

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      That’s why we love doing these challenges because you try new things you may never have before!

  14. Shudiara M says:

    Great smoothie combo. I tend to load the blender with what I have. Smoothies are great.

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Love that! Sometimes it’s a fun surprise to add whatever we have in our house at that time.

  15. Jennifer A says:

    This is a great recipe to use for introducing someone to green smoothies. It’s naturally sweet and not too green!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      We love how this eases everyone into green smoothies! Thank you for your awesome feedback!

  16. Reva Kinnally says:

    Made it this morning! It was really good!

  17. Jordan says:

    Can it get any better than when you have all the ingredients already for day ones recipe?? I think not! This one was a delight

  18. Katie Boyd says:

    I love this one, especially that it doesn’t look green (for my family who still shy away from green drinks). We still have local blueberries in the fridge so perfect timing to blend this up. It’s my day 1 smoothie challenge choice. Thank you

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Thanks for your awesome feedback Katie! I am so happy that you enjoyed this smoothie 🙂

  19. Tendai says:

    I absolutely love this recipe. It’s simple and everything on there is affordable plus is a purple smoothie ❤️

  20. Rebekah says:

    My favorite fruit combo! Delicious!

  21. Jessica says:

    This smoothie was so good! I love using oranges because it’s like adding orange juice but it still has all the fiber and healthy things juice doesn’t have. I also think the consistency was perfect!!! I didn’t have to add more liquid to thin it out. It wasn’t to thick or too thin! The color was nice also. I know sometimes adding the greens with strawberries creates a funny color but ours was vibrant! I was too excited to drink it and forgot o snap a picture.

  22. Leanna says:

    How can you ever go wrong with strawberry & banana. Its my favorite hands down! Hope everyone else enjoys this recipe.

  23. Shelah says:

    Wow! I was scared of strawberries and banana so I used Oregon/Washington berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and cherries). It is so good!!! Let’s do this!

  24. Colleen says:

    Loved this smoothie. And it was a nice color, too.
    If this is in the cookbook, I haven’t made it yet, but now it’ll be in my rotation!

  25. Diana A says:

    Morning smoothie very yummy, I think I’ll substitute orange with mango, next time-just for some variety.

    excited to start this challenge!

  28. Patty Dailey says:

    My day 1 had a family emergency added, but since my shake was already made, it went out the door with me.
    I’ve been a morning smoothie person for a long time. Typically though, it’s been superfoods or protein shakes. I LOVE this simplicity and the leveling down of overt sweet. It tastes fresh and clean and delicious!!

  29. Paula says:

    This is a great smoothie for people afraid of green smoothies. Sometimes green smoothies are a funny, dare I say murky, colour – but this one disguises the spinach really well! 5 stars

  30. sarah says:

    I don’t like banana so I subbed avocado and it was delicious!

  31. Beth H says:

    Great way to start my Monday! Thanks!

  32. Bernadette Smith says:

    I enjoyed this smoothie two thumbs up.

  33. Carlita Young says:

    Good Morning All,
    Surprisingly I like this smoothie, I’m not a fan of strawberries but I am enjoying smoothie this morning. Day 1 underway.
    Let’s GO!!!

  34. Tanya says:

    Strawberry banana is my go-to green smoothie combo…love it!

  35. Julia says:

    This was delicious! Love the citrus and that I can throw it in whole! Great way to kickoff the week.

  36. Tina says:

    Starting the Green Smoothie Autumn Challenge, and what a great tasting smoothie to start with. I love strawberry banana anything, so I see this quickly becoming a favorite repeat!

  37. JoAn says:

    Yummy! Delicious, refreshing, and healthy!

  38. Audrey Lyn says:

    Love the addition of the oranges!! I never would’ve thought to add them to a strawberry/banana smoothie before!

  39. Shelli B says:

    Love this recipe, great way to start the week.

  40. Jessica Brayboy says:

    This is amazing!!! Thank you for sharing this awesome information!!!!

    This smoothie is so good. I was surprised at how good it was in fact. So simple…

    What a great combo of flavors! Loved it!

  46. Margaret says:

    Great way to start the week!

    What are you thoughts about adding vegan protein powder?

  47. Jeannette says:

    Delicious. Even though it’s part of the fall challenge, it’s in the 90’s here this week. This was so refreshing and tasty!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      That is the same for me here in Florida!! I am so happy when we have a smoothie because I still need to refreshing goodness!!

  48. Renee G Luckett says:

    Starting today and looking forward to the week
    Thank you

  49. Emily says:

    Day 1 of the smoothie challenge complete! This smoothie is delicious! I added your recommended boosters of avocado & hemp hearts to make this a sustainable breakfast! Those are my favorite boosters since they don’t really alter the flavor of the smoothie. This is a recipe I plan on making regularly!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Happy day 1!!! I am so happy you took the extra step and made your smoothie into a meal. Yay!!

  50. Patty Dailey says:

    Had to leave home in a hurry this morning but made my smoothie. Only thing is, I only used 1 c spinach and missed a fruit serving, so….I figure I’ll just make another smoothie when I get home!
    Cheers to DAY 1!!

  51. Christyn says:

    Sorry! Forgot to leave five stars!

  52. Christyn says:

    Delicious! I subbed almond milk for the water to get in some extra calcium for my daughter. Definitely adding this one to the favorites list!

  53. Dana Neumann says:

    I’m using up the fruits which were already in my freezer, so no blueberries today. Still delicious, though! Without the blueberries it was a murky brown colour, so I just put it in a travel coffee mug so I couldn’t see it. 🙂

  54. Clare Skinner says:

    Loved this smoothie, easy to make as did the prep evening before. Gave me a fruity boost to tackle a morning of training. Also kept the hunger at bay until lunch

  55. Laura Allison says:

    Love this! Since starting green smoothies this summer my kids, especially my extreme picky eat 8 yr old has gotten more into it. This is one of their favorites for sure. Thank you for helping me get out of my smoothie rut and get creative with fruits and veggies. I feel so much better than I did and notice when I truly need a is like everyday! Looking forward to trying all the things!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Yay!!!! SO glad that you are out of your smoothie rut and back on our challenge 🙂

  56. Ailicec says:

    I just LOVE this recipe!!

    I love berries in general and had never combined them before with Orange, and I think it brings out the flavor and balance it very well!

    Looking forward for the rest of the recipes this week 😀

    Thank you Team! You RAWK! <3

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      That is why we love these challenge because it gets you to try out new things that you might not have before!!

    You can never go wrong with anything that has a strawberry-banana combo! Super fruity and delicious. Thank you!!!

  58. AnnMarie Gomes says:

    Delicious! Bright and fruity. Great start to the day 🙂

  59. Polly says:

    I don’t see orange juice listed in the recipe as an ingredient. How much orange juice?

  60. SHEILA says:

    This smoothie was a huge hit with my grandson when he wasn’t feeling well. He said it cheered him up.

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      That is so awesome to hear!! I love hearing when family members join in on the smoothie game!!

  61. Nancy says:

    Would you tell me how to remove seeds as mentioned in an orange? Can’t I just section the orange after peeling
    and toss in my vitamix? It would take so long to remove seeds, right? I take care of Hospice patient & do not have time
    to remove seed or wash greens(I use triple washed hoping it is ok…wish I had time to wash those also)…thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Nancy,

      If your orange contains seeds then that is totally fine and you can still add them to your smoothie. Your blender should blend them up along with your smoothie.

      Hope that helps!

  62. Michelle says:

    This is delicious. Can’t even tell I’m drinking raw spinach!

  63. Sandy says:

    My family loves it. I love it. We all winning .

  64. Rawkin’ Robin says:

    I have done the 30 day smoothie Halle fe only once but have tried several times. Today is Monday , New Year ‘s Eve and I intend to fast all day to get my blood glucose down and then be ready to rawk on January 1st. My birthday is the 2nd so I am going to ask my family to make some nice cream out of avocado for me. I think your most sincere snd very encouraging. I don’t know how to blog or instagram but I will try. Happy Healthy Nee Year!

  65. Sherrell Martin says:

    ⭐️ Wanna make it everyday…. almost!
    ⭐️ At first, the spinach was all I could taste but I think it has do with our blender! ….the fruit didn’t thoroughly blend with the spinach, but thank God the blender got it together and started blending as it’s supposed to!
    ⭐️ For brain nutrition, seeds were added…at the end! Did not effect goodness of taste!
    ⭐️ …Got breakfast for tomorrow! Thanks for the tip on how to save your smoothies!
    ⭐️ Had all ingredients at home before making the smoothie! Didn’t have to go out and buy anything extra… how AWE-MAZING is God?!?

  66. Nicole says:

    Loving your recipes! Especially this one & I can’t wait to try one… i just wanted to know which smoothie do you recommend for clear skin? My dermatologist suggest that i should try green smoothies for my skin. (Something thats green but tasty!) 🙂

  67. Jamie says:

    Question: Can you provide that measurement in grams for 2 cups of spinach please? Sometimes I find volume based measurements for leafy greens difficult, because so much space is taken up with air with raw, leafy greens. Thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hey Jamie,

      We think the best way to measure 2 cups of spinach is with 2 big handfuls. The more greens you can pack into your smoothie the better!

  68. Tiffany says:

    Hi I was wondering your strawberry banana green smoothie do I drink all of it at once or is it for 2 servings? I’m new to this smoothie diet… thank you

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      This recipe serves two. So grab a friend or save the second serving for another time. Our recipes will keep in your refrigerator in an airtight container for up to two days. So you can always have a green smoothie on hand + ready to go!

  69. AH says:

    Thank you for this easy recipe! First time trying a green smoothie. I was a bit hesitant, but it turned out great! Tasty without any spinach taste.

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi AH,

      YAY! I’m so happy to hear you gave green smoothies a try! And this is really the perfect recipe to start with! Another great option is our Beginner’s Luck Green Smoothie. Check it out here…

  70. Sheela says:

    Hi Jen,
    I made the strawberry banana blueberry green smoothie for the first time for my whole family, and what do you know? They all loved it and were fighting for seconds…especially the kids!!
    Thanks for such an awesome recipe! Quick question… my smoothie looked more brownish than purplish…any thoughts?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Sheela,

      YAY!! I love hearing that this recipe was a hit! Smoothie a little more on the brown side? No worries. Green smoothies with dark berry like strawberries or blueberries will range from red, blue, purple + even brown. It’s all about the ripeness of the fruit!

  71. Tonya says:

    I input 1 serving of this yummy smoothie into MyFitness Pal app and used almond milk instead of water and total calories was only 213!! Unsure of how the previous post from another person claims 1000 calories.

  72. Hanna says:


  73. CT Rocks says:

    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!

  74. Kathy says:

    What is the nutritional value of this smoothie?
    Thank you

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      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.

  78. Brittany says:

    Can you freeze oranges?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Brittany,

      You definitely can! We suggest peeling + segmenting your orange. Then lay your orange segments out on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer and place in the freezer till frozen. Once frozen you can transfer your orange segments into a ziploc or freezer safe container for storage.


  79. Liz says:

    Are you juicing the orange? Or throwing in the whole orange (peeled and seeded)?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Liz,

      Great question! We suggest adding the entire orange, but remove the peel + seeds prior to blending.

      Interested in blending the peel? A small amount of orange peel can pack your green smoothie with a major nutrition boost. Learn more here…

        Do you ever add nuts and seeds to your smoothies?

        Hi Bligey,

        We love adding nuts and seeds to our green smoothies! They’re perfect for an added protein + healthy fat boost!

        We add a 1/2 cup of toasted hazelnuts to our Warm Hazelnut Hot Chocolate Green Smoothie recipe!

    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.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      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!

  82. Claire says:

    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

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      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. 🙂

    • Nic says:

      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.

  83. Shannon says:

    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!!!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Shannon,

      YAY! We’re so excited to have you blendin’ with us! Our recipes will keep in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to two days. Adding a small amount of lemon juice will help preserve all of their green goodness!

  84. Jessica says:

    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!

  85. Naresh says:


    I prepared with Coconut Milk,Banana,Strawberry,Almond and top up with Unflavoured Protein Powder. I took it with me in office and found it very supportive until 8 PM . Earlier I used to eat biscuits that I have stopped it and take smoothies now

    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?


    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      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 absolutely love your smoothies! but is there anyway you can use this recipe as a meal replacer?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Elaina,

      Great question! Of course you can! We suggest adding protein + healthy fats to your favorite recipe when using it as a meal replacement, to ensure you’re fueling your body with a complete meal. Learn more about our favorite meal replacement combos here…

    Message for Georgia – I live in UK and I bought a set of funky cups in Poundland. You can also get them in Asda. You can see I shop in all the ‘posh’ places!!

    Jen & Jadah thank you for all your yummy recipes. Currently in my fridge is the cold and flu remedy as it is that time of year in the UK!

    Happy Christmas

    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!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      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 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?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Georgia,

  98. Roely says:

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

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      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. 🙂
