I have lots of delicious smoothie recipes on my site (I really love smoothies!), but I think the most classic of all is this Strawberry Banana Smoothie. It’s got a short ingredient list and I really think everyone loves the combination of strawberry and bananas. You can’t go wrong! And the best part? My kids BEG for this smoothie! They think it is a treat and I love that it is packed with healthy ingredients. Everyone wins!


I love this ingredient list! It’s short, simple, and I’m guessing you’ve got these items in your kitchen already. We’ll be blending…

  • Frozen strawberries-I like to use frozen strawberries because I can keep them in the freezer at all times, no matter the season, and they are usually more affordable. Plus, frozen strawberries will make a thicker smoothie. If you have fresh strawberries, you can use them, just make sure you use a frozen banana or add ice to thicken it up.
  • Banana – The more brown, the sweeter your smoothie will be! If you have bananas going brown on the counter you can always peel, cut, and freeze them. You can use a fresh or frozen banana. Just make sure you use one frozen fruit, either the strawberries or the banana.
  • Milk – Use any kind you like. I prefer unsweetened vanilla almond milk or even my Homemade Kefir!
  • Plain Greek yogurt– I like to use plain Greek yogurt because I always have it in the fridge and it is lower in sugar than sweetened yogurts. You can use vanilla yogurt if you prefer it.
  • Frozen cauliflower – I promise you can’t taste it and it actually gives the smoothie a super creamy texture. I highly encourage you to add it in!
  • Vanilla extract– Just a splash for sweet vanilla flavor!

How to Make a Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are so EASY to make. Simply place all of the ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth! I use this blender and I love it! A good blender really is key for making sure all of the ingredients get blended up well. You don’t want a chunky smoothie, you want a nice and creamy smoothie:)

Pour into a glass or jar and enjoy! I like to use these reusable straws.

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup frozen cauliflower
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.


I recommend using frozen strawberries and a fresh banana. If you have fresh strawberries, use a frozen banana. If you use fresh strawberries and a fresh banana, add ice to the smoothie to thicken it up.

  1. Maria – new to cauliflower in smoothies. Do you use florets or can you use frozen / riced cauliflower? Thanks so much!

    1. I use florets, but I have a powerful blender. If you don’t have a powerful blender, use riced, it is easier to blend. Both work well:) I hope you love the smoothie! I promise you can’t taste the cauliflower!

    1. It makes the smoothie extra creamy AND it’s an easy way to add a serving of veggies! You can leave it out if you want, but I love boosting my smoothies with more veggies! And my kids don’t even know it’s in there:)

  2. Do adults also know the cauliflower is not in there?! Such a surprising ingredient in a smoothie. I love cauliflower but not sure in a smoothie. Do you taste it?

    1. I promise you can’t taste it! A great way to add in veggies and it makes the smoothie creamy!

  3. 5 stars
    Didn’t have frozen cauliflower, but otherwise made per the recipe. Turned out well. Wasn’t sweet enough for my tastes so may need to let banana ripen more or add a touch of honey next time.

  4. 5 stars
    It is AMAZING! I didn’t have strawberries so I used mangos. It is now my favorite smoothie. So great that I can also get a serving of veggies with it. I can’t even taste the cauliflower! It’s a family fav now.
