Berry Banana Smoothie | SimpleGreenSmoothies.com #vegan #plantbased #greensmoothie

This Berry Banana Smoothie is a creamy, dreamy blend of spinach, strawberries, blueberries, banana, and coconut milk.

It’s no secret that we here at SGS love our berry smoothies! Berries are one of nature’s healthiest superfoods. Loaded with tons of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, vitamins, and minerals, berries are definitely something to keep on hand at all times.

We developed this Banana Berry Smoothie with red, white, and blue ingredients as we celebrated the summer US holidays. You’ll love sipping on an ice cold berry smoothie on the 4th of July – promise! And really, a Banana Berry Smoothie is always good for sipping.

The Best Places To Buy Frozen Fruit

In the wintertime I rely on frozen fruit. I like to buy big bags of organic berries from Costco because you can’t beat the price! It costs a bit up front, but they last for a long time and the cost evens out.

Other times I head to Trader Joe’s because their frozen fruit is high quality and budget-friendly.

Berries and Bananas: The Truth

Want to hear something funny? Did you know bananas are actually berries? It’s true! The tropical fruit we associate with monkeys are an aggregate fruit having grown from a single flower with more than one ovary. They are classified as a berry. Though “true berries” come from one flour and one ovary and have numerous seeds.

Want to hear another funny thing? Strawberries aren’t really berries. And neither are raspberries or blackberries. Crazy, right? (I won’t go into all the details, but if you’re curious, this article is very interesting.)

But for the sake of tradition, we’ll call bananas bananas and berries berries. 😉

      Hey Dee,

      Yay!! That is awesome you found a favorite already. Adding in those ingredients sounds like the perfect blend.

    Is that a typo in the calorie count? How come so high in Cals verses the other smoothies?

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Tenille,

      Thank you for bringing that to our attention. That was a typo and we have updated the caloric information now.

      Cheers!

  5. Philippa says:

    This tasted great. The strawberries are nice a subtle.

    Yummy. Berries and bananas are always delicious. Using coconut milk instead of almond milk changes things up a bit.

  7. Sandra Simkins says:

    I loved this one! Berries and bananas are my favorite!

  8. Beth says:

    After making this smoothie I somehow was distracted and accidentally poured most of it in the sink versus my jar! So sad but I did manage to salvage about 1/4 of it by the time I realized what I was doing. Tasted delicious! I plan on making it again over the weekend as a freestyle smoothie. This time I will have a whole one!

  9. Cory says:

    One of my most favorites so far!

  10. Molly says:

    Yum!

  11. Bethany Vines says:

    YUMM!! I loved this one. I used part coconut water, part coconut milk so the milk wasn’t too overpowering. The perfect amount of sweet! I’m loving these coconut milk smoothies!

  12. Bonnie says:

    Used coconut water instead of coconut milk to lighten it up. Very refreshing.

    Not my favorite…not sure what i am doing wrong but my smoothie did not taste good after sitting in the fridge for an hour after blending it. Also how do you get the smoothie to be pink like in that picture?

  17. Mariepaul says:

    Every smoothie with coconut milk in it is a real treat for me! I love coconut!!! Great mix of flavour!

    nice smoothie but I had made it the night before and it turned brown overnight which was a bit off putting. It looked like the one in the picture when i put it into the fridge.

  21. Liz says:

    This would be close to my favourite one so far!! So good and creamy! Nom!!

  22. Patricia says:

    Definitely one of my favorites so far. Appeals to my sweet tooth. Yum yum!!

  23. Valerie W says:

    While I like coconut milk in my smoothies, I find I prefer half coconut milk and half almond milk. This was a yummy combination!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      That is one of the reasons why we love this challenge, because you really get to know what you like and don’t like and can adjust it to what works for you!

    Made this for breakfast and after all 3 boys took their “sips” to try it, I had to make another one for me! They loved it! Thanks for sharing such great combinations!
