    And strawberries (but it’s not as fun to spell out) …

    You only really need 3 ingredients to make this smoothie: strawberries, bananas, and your choice of juice (I used orange). All it takes is a quick whirl in your blender and you have yourself a smoothie in minutes!

    Liquid for your smoothie:

    This smoothie recipe does not feature any dairy or dairy substitutes, but I find the bananas help give the smoothie that silky, creamy factor just fine! But do feel free to swap out the juice for your choice of milk if you prefer.

    If you do choose to use juice, fresh is definitely best. I used freshly squeezed orange juice for mine. You can use whichever juice is your favorite, and you can also use store bought juice.

    If you’re making your smoothie with store bought juice, just be careful with the sweetness. Pre-made juice is often sweeter than fresh.

    Whenever I use store bought juice, if it’s a brand I’m not familiar with, I like to add half the juice called for, blend, and taste the smoothie. If it’s too thick, but perfectly sweet, I’ll thin it out with some water. If it can still use some sweetness, I’ll add the rest of the juice to get the conistency I like.

    Fresh fruit vs frozen fruit smoothie:

    When it comes to the fruits you use in your smoothie, you can use either fresh or frozen. Frozen fruit will yield a thicker smoothie that’s extra frosty and refreshing!

    Fresh fruit will yield a milder and looser smoothie, with a fresher fruit taste! Both are delicious, so it just depends on what you’re craving.

    Dairy-Free Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

    This easy, dairy free smoothie is incredibly refreshing and comes together in 5 minutes or less! Bursting with fresh fruit flavor, it makes a great pick me up for busy mornings.
    Prep Time 5 minutes
    Cook Time 0 minutes
    Total Time 5 minutes
    Servings 1 to 2 people

    Ingredients

    • 1 medium ripe banana, cut into large chunks
    • 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries * see notes
    • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice ** see notes for substitutions

    Instructions

    • Combine all of your ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. If your smoothie is too thick for your liking, blend in a splash more juice until it reaches your desired consistency.

    Notes

    * Fresh strawberries will give you a slightly looser smoothie, while frozen strawberries will give you a thicker and frostier smoothie. Both are delicious, so either one works fine here! Depends on what you’re craving.
    ** Fresh orange juice tastes amazing in this recipe, but you can also use store-bought orange juice or any flavor of juice you love! Be careful if you do use store-bought juice because it can often be sweeter than fresh juice. In that case, I would add about a 1/4 cup of juice, blending it and testing the sweetness. If it can handle more sweetness, add in the rest. If not, you can thin the rest of the smoothie out with water.

    Enjoy!
