A Strawberry Banana Almond Milk Smoothie that takes less than five minutes to make? This dairy free smoothie is kid-friendly and gluten free! Whee!
Although I look forward to strawberry season every year, be assured this is an all year smoothie! Having fond memories of picking fresh strawberries, I find strawberries make the most delicious smoothie reminiscent of my favorite milkshakes. But with much healthier clean ingredients and valuable sought-after antioxidants.
Looking for a strawberry smoothie with almond milk but no yogurt, this smoothie was created. I pondered the ingredients that would be needed to create the ultimate creaminess. That would satisfy even the pickiest person?
Smoothies are such a win in the challenge of getting those daily servings of fruits and vegetables. This one reminds me of a tropical drink. And this favorite of mine is too easy to be so delicious. Why it’s a dessert in a glass.
What Is All The Fuss About Strawberries?
Well, they are:
- Fat free
- Sodium Free
- Cholesterol Free
- Good source of antioxidants and Vitamin C
“These sweet little packages protect your heart, increase HDL (good)cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer.” *
Tip: I use only organic strawberries in this recipe to avoid pesticides and to use the cleanest ingredients possible.
This Strawberry Banana Almond Smoothie Is Great As/For/Because:
The inspiration for this strawberry smoothie comes from Whole Living. I adjusted the ingredients and have made a few different versions every time I have made it, but this recipe is my absolute favorite. There are no “greens” in this smoothie like other smoothies on the site; kale or spinach, which are also delicious.
Tip: Use frozen banana and strawberry and eliminate the ice cubes for a thicker consistency.
When I do this, this strawberry smoothie reminds me of a strawberry milkshake! If you are using room temperature fruits, just add the six ice cubes.

What you will need: 1 ripe banana, 1 cup strawberries ( I used frozen), 1 cup almond milk (or substitute your favorite dairy free milk), 6 ice cubes and 1/2 an orange (or 1/4 cup fresh orange juice). Place all ingredients in a blender and blend several minutes until smooth and creamy and frothy! This smoothie can be stored in the fridge for later. What a great breakfast to sip along the morning commute, as a quick snack after school, or when that friendly sugar craving is looming.
