You do not need to have aspirations to be a smoothie person this year to love every sip of this healthy Greek Yogurt Smoothie.

And if you do have aspirations to be a smoothie person, here’s the perfect easy smoothie recipe to get you started!

Made with strawberry, banana, and protein-rich ingredients like Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and oatmeal, this wholesome smoothie will keep you full for hours. It’s thick and creamy, pleasingly fruity, and tastes absolutely delicious.

Whether this recipe is your first smoothie or your 500th, I am confident you’ll adore every sip.

The Greek yogurt strawberry banana smoothie combo is classic and just plain yummy. If you haven’t had a strawberry banana smoothie for a while—perhaps you consider it too obvious and have been in pursuit of more unusual combinations—you are in for a refreshing reminder of why these two fruits are famous flavor buddies. They rock.

(Also, if the idea of strawberry/banana being cliché resonates with you, you sound adventurous and ready for a Beet Smoothie or Oatmeal Smoothie.)

My biggest gripe with many smoothie recipes is that they don’t keep me full for longer than an hour or two. Not this smoothie!

The recipe leans heavier on the Greek yogurt, meaning it’s especially rich in protein (important if you are looking for smoothies for weight loss).

Add fiber-rich strawberries, bananas, and oatmeal, plus the help of healthy fats from a touch of peanut butter, and you have a winning breakfast smoothie poised to keep you full and happy until your next meal.

How to Make a Delicious Greek Yogurt Smoothie

This recipe uses simple ingredients and will become one of your go-to smoothie recipes.

The Ingredients

  • Banana. Bananas are rich in fiber, antioxidants and nutrients, making them perfect for a smoothie. While I usually freeze bananas for smoothies, here you don’t need to (win if you haven’t planned ahead!). Since the banana isn’t frozen, you can make this smoothie without milk. If you do use a frozen banana, you may need to splash in some milk or water to thin it so the smoothie blends.
  • Strawberries. With vitamins, manganese, potassium, and antioxidants, strawberries make a healthy addition to any smoothie. I use frozen strawberries; they are perfect for smoothies because they make it extra creamy and thick. In place of the strawberries, you could also use frozen mixed berries or blueberries.
  • Greek Yogurt. What type of yogurt is good for smoothies? I think Greek yogurt is the best for smoothies because of it’s rich, creamy texture, tangy flavor, AND it’s high in lean protein.
    • Is Greek Yogurt Good for You? Yes, Greek yogurt is good for you! It’s one of my favorite healthy ingredients. Greek yogurt is low in added sugars (the sugars in plain Greek yogurt occur naturally in dairy), and it’s rich in calcium, probiotics, nutrients, and antioxidants.
  • Oatmeal. Oatmeal is a fantastic addition to smoothies because it’s packed with protein and fiber to keep you full for hours. It makes the smoothie creamy, and its flavor is subtle and pleasant.
  • Peanut Butter. For added protein and flavor. I chose to make this Greek yogurt smoothie with peanut butter. Feel free to use almond butter or, if you prefer the smoothie to be nut free, you can use sun butter or simply omit it.
  • Honey. I like adding honey to this smoothie for a touch of sweetness. Plus, honey adds additional antioxidants!
  • Ice. An option addition if you want to make your smoothie thicker.

The Directions

  1. Place all of the ingredients but the ice in a blender, and blend until smooth. Adjust mixture with ice or milk as needed. Pour in a glass, and ENJOY!

Are Smoothies Good for Weight Loss?

  • This Greek yogurt smoothie can be good for weight loss because of its high protein content. The protein will help to keep you full, which will reduce the temptation to reach for that mid-morning snack.
  • The delicious texture and flavor of smoothies can even satisfy a sweet tooth. Try this Greek yogurt smoothie for a low calorie, healthy dessert.

Recipe Adaptations

  • High Protein Greek Yogurt Smoothie. Add 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder.
  • Greek Yogurt Smoothie, No Banana. I made this a Greek yogurt smoothie with banana, but if you prefer to make your smoothie without banana, I suggest trying my tasty Strawberry Smoothie.
  • Vanilla Greek Yogurt Smoothie. Add 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract for a hint of vanilla flavor or use vanilla Greek yogurt. If you use flavored yogurt, look for one with minimal added sugars.

Make-Ahead Smoothie Tips

  • To Make Ahead. Blend the smoothie up to 1 day in advance and store in the refrigerator in an airtight jar. The less air, the better.
  • To Make Ahead and Freeze. Prepare the smoothie as directed, pour into an ice cube tray, and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, add the smoothie ice cubes to the blender with a little water or almond milk, and blend.
  • Prepare the smoothie as directed and pour into freezer-safe mason jars. Place sealed jars in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
  • For easy breakfasts and snacks, you can also blend the smoothie as directed and pour it into popsicle mold plastic bags (like these) or popsicle mold containers. Freeze for up to 3 months, and grab and go as needed.

All of them above make-ahead options would also work well if you want to double (or triple) the recipe.

    1. Hi Ann! I used regular rolled oats for this recipe, but you could also use quick oats. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

  1. I was afraid this was going to be the very sweet strawberry banana flavor that I don’t care for in packaged yogurt or smoothies but this was not it at all!  The peanut butter really cuts the banana flavor, I loved this smoothie! So rich and creamy! I used soy milk and it was fine.  This was really filling and the oats were a nice addition to make it feel like a full breakfast in a glass.5 stars

    1. I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed this recipe, Mike! Thank you for taking the time to share this kind review!

  2. Can I use plain old cow’s milk instead of almond or soy milk? Alternatively, what about a little apple juice (that’s what I use in my usual banana strawberry smoothie). Looking forward to trying this. The oats and PB have me intrigued!

    1. Hi Annie! You can certainly use regular milk for this smoothie. I have not tried apple juice in my smoothie before, but you’re welcome to experiment. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

  3. I was looking for a quick easy recipe and I found this and made it in five minutes. It was so delicious! I used coconut greek yogurt instead of plain. I will be making it again!5 stars

    1. I’m so pleased that you enjoyed the smoothie, Ashli! Thank you for sharing this kind review!

  4. Hello, this is delicious! Is this recipe for 1 or 2 smoothies? There is a lot here(which I don’t mind finishing, by the way! ?) I want to make sure I’m accurate for the calorie count. Thanks for the amazing recipe!5 stars

    1. Hi Janera! This recipe should yield 1 12-ounce smoothie. I’m so happy that you enjoyed it!

  5. this is one of my favorite smoothie recipes! i also throw in a scoop of unflavored protein powder (isopure is great) and a tsp of chia seeds. super yummy and rewarding after a workout! :) 5 stars

  6. This smoothie is delicious! I will definitely be making this again. The peanut butter and oatmeal are such nice additions.5 stars

    1. Hi Miguel! The Greek yogurt and nut butter are both high in protein. I hope you enjoy the recipe if you try it!

  7. This smoothie is my absolute favourite! I’m a relatively new smoothie drinker and keep trying out new recipes to see if any of them will live up to it but so far they haven’t. Great flavour and very filling.5 stars

    1. Hi Brenda! The fruit and honey do contain some natural sugars. The nutrition calculation is just an estimate based on the ingredients used, so if the numbers are important to you, I’d recommend using a tool like MyFitnessPal to input your exact ingredients. I hope this helps!

  8. Hi Erin,
    So I made your Greek style smoothie, but with some changes only because it was what I had on hand, lol.
    I used strawberries, but’s also blueberries.
    I used the peanut butter, the honey and I had Simply unsweetened almond milk.
    I had Trader Joe’s organic low fat vanilla Greek yogurt, so it was not plain. Not usually a fan of non fat because of the pectin.
    It did come out delicious, but next time I will follow your recipe exactly.
    Also I note have plain oatmeal.
    I love your recipes.
    I have your cookbook, well plated cookbook. I hope to be cooking up some recipes soon!
    It’s been a rough couple of months, but cooking should be therapeutic!5 stars

    1. I’m so happy that you enjoyed it, Trish! Thank you for sharing this kind review and for ordering my cookbook!

  9. This is honestly the best tasting smoothie I ever had!! I also love that it’s packed with Protein to help me stay fuller longer. I will never make another smoothie again! Best evaaaaaa!!!!5 stars

  10. This smoothie was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly but I was out of peanut butter so I substituted almond butter and I added a little cinnamon for better glucose control. I try to use cinnamon in the morning to help with healthy glucose levels. Also, I added a scoop of my collagen powder. Wow, this smoothie is filling! I’m actually stuffed right now. I even had enough to share with my oldest daughter and she loved it too. This is definitely a smoothie I will make many, many times over. Thank you for this delicious recipe!5 stars

  11. This smoothie was fantastic! It’s been awhile since I’ve had a smoothie but I was wanting to incorporate greek yogurt into my daily routine. I’m not a huge fan of the taste of greek yogurt but this recipe balances it out nicely and is so filling. I loved it!5 stars

  12. I’m excited to try this smoothie but was wondering if it would make a big difference in the taste and texture if I also added in ground flax seed. I look forward to trying a bunch of your different smoothies.

  13. So I have a nut allergy so I made this smoothie without the peanut butter and omg super delicious!!! My late night snack from now on!!:)5 stars

    1. This is so yummy and my tummy is happy too!!
      I will continue to add greek yogurt to my smoothie recipes.
      Sharing is caring, thank you Erin.5 stars

  14. Hi Erin!

    Thank you so much for this recipe.. I heard about greek yogurt being good for gut health as it’s packed with probiotics so been searching for a good post-workout smoothie and the taste of this one really surprised me! Did not expect it to be this delicious as usually I only make banana and strawberry smoothies with milk, but this time following your recipe, I realised the yoghurt gives a creamy consistency. I also added protein powder and almond milk, which tasted wonderful.

    Thanks again x5 stars

  15. So wonderful. The flavours are so balanced and satisfying. I’m in love with your smoothie recipes! It’s wonderful I have such a reliable source to go to when I want to try a new one! ;)5 stars

    1. Hi Jo! I used regular rolled oats for this smoothie, but you could also use quick oats. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

  16. Oh wow, is this good!! My big blender kicked the bucket, so I used my immersion blender and a large mason jar! Perfection! This recipe is a keeper for me. Thanks for making it so easy for me to make! (P.S. The peanut butter is genius!)5 stars

  17. This is great! I work with young learners, and we did this recipe during class today for a fun and healthy Cooking Class. We all had a lot of fun and they really enjoyed the recipe. Thank you for sharing!5 stars

  18. This was a good recipe for my husband and I. I am doing it for lunch. I had to change to unsweetened coconut yogurt and almond milk. I also went with frozen mangos and frozen blueberries. Tomorrow I am going to try canned apricots and blueberries. Delicious, thank you from this old retired couple who want to stay healthy.

  19. It’s delicious!
    I used frozen strawberries though. Still delicious and very cold, just the way I like it5 stars

  20. Great smoothie! I use almond butter, frozen mixed berries, mango, as well as banana. My wife enjoys them as much as I do and this is shows up regularly for our breakfast. Will add protein powder after next shopping trip. Thanks for a great recipe!5 stars

    1. Hi Collin! I’m confused because I see it on my end. The full recipe with the measurements was right above the area where you commented. There is also a “jump to recipe” button at the top of the page to get you to the recipe card faster. Can you please double check? Thanks!

  21. I don’t know how a stumbled on this recipe but it’s the only one I ever use now. I don’t use milk in my cooking and it expires too fast to justify me buying it so I LOVE that this recipe uses yogurt instead. All ingredients I normally have on hand and keeps me full for hours. Really great!5 stars

  22. OMG – sound like a lot of sugar in this smoothie. Why dont you use full fat greek yoghurt and lower the suguar. There is a lot of sugar in non fat and low fat yoghurt??

  23. Also nut allergy so no nut butter, otherwise by recipe. The taste was excellent, except for the distraction of raw oatmeal which still tasted like little bits of raw oatmeal after blending. Not a good texture for a person who mustn’t be chewing anything.

    1. Hi Renee! I have a ton of other smoothies that might fit your needs better than this smoothie. Here you go:

    1. Hi Ava, as stated in the recipe I recommend frozen strawberries. If you use fresh strawberries then you may not get the same result as I did. If you decide to experiment, let me know how it goes!

  24. Just got a new blender and wanted to test it out! I haven’t had a smoothie in a long time. This hit the spot! I veneer thought of adding oats to it. I added some frozen pineapples to it as well. The consistency was very creamy and delicious. Thank you!5 stars

  25. Happened to stumble upon this smoothie recipe after trying to find good greek yogurt smoothie ideas/recipes. And boy am I happy I found this one! This is such a yummy smoothie and an easy recipe to follow. I make this smoothie in the morning or even for a snack and it fills me right up! My mom even loves them!5 stars

    1. I’m so happy that you’ve enjoyed the recipe, Cameron! Thank you for sharing this kind review!

  26. Stumbled across this why looking for smoothies using fat free greek yogurt. An oh my! Wow is all i can say. Flavours complement each other so well. Absolutely delish!! Breakfast done right!! Will be making this again5 stars
