Greek Yogurt Strawberry Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

This recipe was originally featured on Juggling Act Mama as a guest post.

Whether you’re anticipating the start of the new school year or just trying to make mornings more manageable, a quick and healthy breakfast is always a good thing. This quick strawberry smoothie takes just minutes to whip up in the blender, and it is a crowd pleaser for the whole family.

Frozen strawberries, banana, lemon, and yogurt combine to create a super quick and healthy breakfast that requires little prep and easy clean up. I used to dread being asked to make smoothies for breakfast, but this strawberry smoothie recipe has been a game changer!

Strawberries make their annual appearance in fields where I live in mid May, so I am always intentional to freeze several gallon bags full. Frozen strawberries aren’t great for eating plain, but they are perfect for smoothies and pies. (Try my sugar cookie crusted strawberry cobbler!) Freezing berries to use for smoothies is a breeze, and you can see how I do that here.

Most breakfast smoothies at our house come about as a result of what we have on hand. Have some blueberries? Great, throw them in! Banana? That, too! But for this strawberry smoothie, I wanted to grab onto the taste of strawberry lemonade. It’s a summertime favorite, and the taste of the sweet berries with the zesty lemon is the perfect combination.

And the addition of greek yogurt gives this strawberry smoothie a protein boost that fruit-only smoothies lack. So feel good about this well-balanced breakfast or snack!

Smoothies with no refined sugar

If your kids are like mine, then they love for their smoothies to be sweet. And while I also tend to lean toward the sweeter smoothie, I don’t like to add any kind of refined sugar to what I would consider a “healthy” breakfast or snack. So what sweetens a smoothie with out refined sugar?

In the case of this greek yogurt strawberry smoothie, the strawberries themselves add a touch of sweetness, but I also use a banana (the browner the better!) and a small amount of honey. This gives a nice mellow sweetness without being overpowering.

This strawberry smoothie recipe could certainly be adapted to whatever you happen to have in your fridge. By all means, toss in a handful of spinach, which will alter the color, but not greatly affect the taste.

One of my kids favorite smoothies, which we’ve been making for years, is our Leprechaun Milk. And while it clearly has a spring theme, it is delicious any time of year. Spinach, bananas, and peanut butter combine perfectly in Leprechaun Milk to create a fun and tasty green drink. That’s just another quick breakfast option for you busy folks out there!

Smoothie with Greek Yogurt Ingredients

  • 1 cup Almond Milk (or your favorite milk)
  • 1/2 cup Plain Greek Yogurt (or vanilla yogurt) 
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 lemon 
  • 1 banana
  • 1-2 cups ice
  • 1-2 tbsp honey

Note: If you do happen to use sweetened yogurt in the recipe, that’s totally fine, but omit the honey. The banana and honey are what add the most sweetness to this smoothie recipe, so if you have more of a sweet tooth, feel free to add a bit more honey than what is called for.

How to Make a Greek Yogurt Strawberry Smoothie

  1. First. combine milk, yogurt, berries, lemon juice, and banana in the blender (I love my Ninja Blender!). Blend for 20 seconds or until the strawberries are no longer chunky. 
  2. Once your ingredients are smooth, add in honey and blend again for 10 seconds. 
  3. Finally add in ice. Begin with just a cup of ice and blend. If the smoothie’s consistency is thick enough, then don’t add any more. If you like your smoothies thicker, add another half cup of ice until the right thickness is reached. 
  4. Serve your smoothie in a tall glass with a thick straw and enjoy! 

Fruit Smoothie Variations

  • First, add in a handful of baby spinach for a vitamin c and calcium boost.
  • Then add a scoop of your favorite protein powder or collagen for a complete meal replacement.
  • After that, put int a tablespoon of cocoa powder and extra honey for a chocolate strawberry smoothie.
  • Swap out the strawberries for raspberries or blueberries for a fruity variation. 

How to Serve a Strawberry Smoothie

For less melting, place glass cups in the refrigerator before making the smoothies. This will help them maintain their cool temperature longer. One recipe will yield two medium sized smoothies, so be sure to have glasses on hand when the smoothies are ready! Use a thicker (milkshake) straw if possible, or give kids a spoon to eat the smoothie until it melts slightly.
