What Makes This Smoothie Healthy?

Don't underestimate the mighty strawberry in smoothies! Loved for their bright red colour and cute shape, strawberries are bursting with natural sweetness, fruity flavour and provide many health benefits. A big reason why berries are top of my A Nutritionist Recommends List, is because all berries offer an excellent dose of dietary fibre which improves digestion and feeds your gut flora. Strawberries are also naturally low in calories and high in water, making them a perfect guilt-free snack or a nutritious addition to any smoothie recipe or meal. However, for the every day person, strawberries are mostly a popular smoothie choice for their sweet and fragrant flavour. So next time you're looking for a delicious and healthy boost, reach for a handful of berries!

Strawberry smoothies are not only delicious for all of the above reason, but blending berries makes a well-balanced, high-fibre meal when combined other natural and wholefood ingredients. Here's why:

  • vitamin C: berries are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, particularly vitamin C, and are a good plant source of dietary fibre.

  • dietary fibre: adding fruits like bananas, berries, or using whole ingredients like spinach or kale boosts your fibre intake, promoting gut health and keeping you feeling fuller for longer.

  • hydration smoothies are a refreshing way to stay hydrated, especially if are someone who struggles to drink enough plain water.

  • convenience: smoothies, especially those with minimal ingredients, make a quick and convenient on-the-go breakfast, lunch, or healthy snack.

Strawberries pack a powerful punch of nutrition for something so small, and are an excellent berry to blend with other fruit in smoothies. They pair well vegetables, and provide enough flavour to help mask the grassy taste of leafy greens, bland taste of some plant milks and cauliflower, and other healthy smoothie ingredients.

3-Ingredient Strawberry Smoothie

So simple to make, I wouldn't be surprised if you started blending this smoothie recipe on repeat. The addition of frozen banana and a handful of makes for a delightfully thick texture and a smoothie consistency that folds out of the blender like soft-serve ice cream rather than your run-of-the-mill, liquid smoothie. If you prefer to sip your smoothies, just skip the ice and use room temperature bananas instead. Blenders ready? Let's try it!


  • 2 bananas, chopped and fully frozen

  • 250ml almond milk, unsweetened

  • 1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen

  • OPTIONAL: 1 scoop plantbased protein powder (vanilla recommended)

  • THICK SMOOTHIE: add a handful of crushed ice

Low Carb Option:

  • 1 cup cauliflower steamed in vanilla spiked water (swap for the banana)

  • 2 tsp stevia (if you want extra sweetness)

In a high-powered blender, add all the ingredients. If using the Low Carb Option, wait until the cauliflower has fully cooled before blending. Blend on high until all the ingredients are well combined, about 2-3 minutes. Spoon or pour into a serving bowl and top with your favourite crunchy and fruit toppings.

This smoothie recipe is a great base recipe if you want to start experimenting with new smoothie recipes of your own. Try it with a handful of greens like spinach or kale. Add a little nut butter and seeds to up the protein content, or try it with the suggested scoop of vanilla flavoured protein powder.
