Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie


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…

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.

And don’t forget all the vitamin K and iron in the spinach.

    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!

    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!

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

    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.

    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
