How to Make a Simple, Delicious Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie
This smoothie recipe calls for only a few ingredients. You won’t need to visit a specialty store to make it!
The ingredients like strawberries and blueberries are good for you and offer a wide range of vitamins and nutrients. This healthy breakfast smoothie is a wholesome addition to your day.
- Almond Milk. For the smoothie to blend properly, you need a liquid base. I love almond milk both its mildly nutty, creamy texture but you can use any milk you like or have on hand.
- Frozen Strawberries and Blueberries. I prefer using frozen ones, so that my smoothie is satisfyingly thick and creamy. If you buy frozen fruit at the grocery store, double-check that it does not contain any added sugars.
- Vanilla Greek Yogurt. Nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt adds extra protein to the smoothie, making it more filling. Also, vanilla is delicious, especially with berries.
- If you’d like to make this strawberry blueberry smoothie without yogurt, swap it for a few extra pieces of fruit for thickness. To make sure the smoothie stays filling, consider replacing the protein in the yogurt with chia seeds or protein powder.
- Cinnamon. My secret smoothie ingredient, especially when it comes to blueberry smoothies! Its touch of warmth makes this smoothie stand out among the other blueberry and strawberry smoothie recipes you may have tried. (If you love cinnamon, be sure to check out this creamy Blueberry Smoothie as well.)
You may have noticed that this strawberry blueberry smoothie is made with no banana. I do like banana in smoothies and often add it, but it can be a little overpowering. Leaving the banana out of this recipe allows the flavors of the berries to shine purely.
Optional Ingredient Add-Ins
This smoothie is delicious as is, but feel free to doctor it up with extra ingredients if you like. A few of my favorite additions:
- Spinach. You won’t be able to taste it! If you are serving this smoothie to picky eaters, the spinach will turn it a less pleasant color, so I’d suggest pouring the smoothie into an opaque cup if you’d like to hide the addition. (This Strawberry Spinach Smoothie is a great recipe with spinach.)
- Protein Powder. If I’m having my smoothie post workout or want a breakfast smoothie that is extra filling, I like to add a scoop of vanilla protein powder (chocolate would be yummy in this recipe too).
- Chia Seeds. These little powerhouses of nutrients add fiber and are almost imperceptible in smoothies.
- Nut Butter. A tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter adds healthy, sustaining fats and makes the smoothie more filling.
- Grab a high powered blender, and add your almond milk first (this is also when you should add spinach, if you’d like to include it). Then, toss in your strawberries, blueberries, Greek yogurt, and cinnamon.
- Blend it until smooth. If you prefer a thinner smoothie, add in a bit more milk. If you prefer your smoothie thick, toss in a few ice cubes.
- Serve, sip, and enjoy the realizing that something this good for you can taste this good too.
Tips to Thicken Your Smoothie
I love my smoothies nice and thick, as I think it makes them more satisfying. This recipe is already fairly thick, but if you’d like to thicken your smoothie even more, here are a few tips:
- Blend in a few cubes of ice after you mix your main ingredients until you reach your desired consistency.
- For thickness and added flavor, try blending in an extra handful of frozen fruit.
- You can also try adding in 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. After a few minutes, these little nutrient-rich seeds will soak up some of the excess liquid and thicken the smoothie.
- As the recipe is written, this smoothie is gluten free.
- For a vegan strawberry blueberry smoothie, use almond milk. Swap the yogurt either for additional fruit (plus almond butter or vegan protein powder to make it more filling) or use a non-dairy yogurt.
Blender Notes and Recommendations
- I recently purchased a new high-powered blender and absolutely love it (I actually bought a certified refurbished version directly from the manufacturer, which reduced the price).
- You do not need a high-dollar blender to make this strawberry blueberry smoothie. If you use a high powered blender (like the one I listed above), your smoothie will have a finer, more even consistency, but you can certainly make this recipe in a regular blender too. If your smoothie is too thick to blend, add more almond milk (you can even supplement this strawberry blueberry smoothie with water in a pinch).
- I owned this more economical option for a while. While it doesn’t get things as smooth as quickly as a high-powered blender or come with the same bells and whistles, it’s a good option for the price.
- I sip my smoothies through these stainless steel straws. They make everything you drink through them from smoothies, to iced tea or iced coffee, to even water taste extra refreshing. I also keep a few in my purse for when I’m out and about, so I don’t need to ask for a plastic or paper straw.
