This strawberry blueberry smoothie recipe uses simple ingredients and is a healthy on-the-go breakfast option! Just 4 ingredients and all you need is a blender to make this fruity smoothie.
Summers are for blueberry smoothies, right?! I mean, just look at that color! I'm a year-round smoothie drinker, but I know so many people don't love cold foods in the winter, which I completely understand. The best part about this smoothie is that it uses SIMPLE ingredients, ones that you probably already have on hand.
My ONE TIP for making smoothies your best friend is to determine if you like super thick smoothies, or ones that are slightly thinner in texture. I feel like the majority of people prefer thick smoothies, but not me.
What I'm getting at is that, if you like smoothies thick and super cold, use frozen fruit! It's going to completely change the texture (in a good way!). If thick smoothies aren't your thing, use fresh fruit. Simple as that.
WHY YOU SHOULD MAKE THIS STRAWBERRY BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE
- It's fruity
- It's an easy yogurt smoothie - no complicated ingredients
- Protein with a touch of sweetness=the best kind of smoothie
- ...Speaking of sweetness, you must try my almond butter cauliflower smoothie if you haven't already! It's sweet but also has cauliflower and is SO tasty
HEALTHY STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE INGREDIENTS
Strawberries: Fresh or frozen
Blueberries: Fresh or frozen
Greek yogurt*: Yogurt adds some protein to this smoothie, so I think including it is super important. However, you can always sub for dairy free yogurt or any other kind of yogurt
Honey: This is optional, but honey pairs well with fruit and a little bit goes a long way. You could also substitute maple syrup instead
Milk*: Milk tends to be my go-to liquid when I'm making smoothies, but you could also use water or orange juice. Oh, and ANY kind of milk will work, so use what you have in your refrigerator.
Granola: I wouldn't put granola in the smoothie, but adding some on top would be delicious
Nuts: almonds, walnuts, cashews, etc.
Protein: vanilla protein powder would be delicious
Vegetables: cauliflower, any kind of greens like spinach or kale
IS A SMOOTHIE A HEALTHY BREAKFAST OPTION?
Yes! As long as you're not adding a ton of added sugar, then a smoothie is absolutely a healthy breakfast. This recipe calls for a small amount of honey, which you can easily omit if you're watching your sugar intake. It also includes yogurt, which adds protein and will keep you fuller for longer.
OTHER SMOOTHIE RECIPES
Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie
- 1 ½ cups strawberries fresh or frozen*
- ⅔ cup blueberries fresh or frozen
- ¼ cup Greek yogurt
- ½ cup milk of choice
- 1 tablespoon honey optional
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend for 30 seconds.
Can this be made ahead of time in a large batch and placed in the freezer or fridge? Husband sometimes leaves at 3am and the blender wouldn't be an option that early.
I think so! The texture will be a bit thicker, but it should still work.
