This classic Strawberry Banana Smoothie is a quick and easy treat for breakfast or a mid-day snack. See how easy it is to make this copycat recipe.
I’m Lisa from A Leafy Life and I’m thrilled to be back again with a delicious and nutritious smoothie recipe. I think that the first smoothie I ever made was probably a Strawberry Banana Smoothie. Not only is it easy to make, but I usually have all the ingredients on hand. I love the wonderful combination of the strawberries and bananas mixed together in creamy goodness.
After I made this recipe myself, I realized that there is also a Starbucks smoothie just like it. So now I am happy to tell you that this is also a Starbucks copycat recipe. Enjoy!
My youngest daughter, Jessica, loves Strawberry Banana Smoothies and likes to get one from McDonalds or Starbucks whenever we are out. But I’m really not sure what kind of ingredients go into these drinks. Why bother when you can make them at home with fresh ingredients from your kitchen?

Smoothie Questions And Tips
This is such an easy recipe, but here are some of the most popular questions I’ve been asked about it.
Can you use dairy milk in a smoothie?
I like using almond milk because it’s creamier. But yes, you can use dairy milk instead. You can also use any form of milk here. The oat milk in the smoothie comes out the same way.
How do you make a smoothie without a blender?
You don’t have to have a blender, but it really does make it a lot easier. You can use a food processor instead.
Another cheaper option is to buy an immersion blender. These are handheld, very easy to clean, and you can store them in your drawer, which gives you more cabinet space.
What other types of fruit can I add to the smoothie?
There is something so comforting and familiar about my strawberry banana smoothie. But feel free to branch out and get creative. Add more fruit to it!
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
- Strawberry kiwi
- Blueberry banana
- Banana kiwi
- Banana and rapsberry
