This vegan strawberry banana smoothie is oh-so-delicious, yet only made with 3 ingredients!

Strawberry and banana is a really popular smoothie combo, but most recipes include milk or yogurt in the ingredients. We’re not big fans of dairy though, so we created this vegan strawberry banana smoothie instead. It has all the flavour and creaminess of the classic smoothie, without the animal products.
How do we manage to keep it creamy without adding dairy? The secret is frozen banana… It has all of the rich and smooth properties of ice-cream but none of the lactose. Oh, and fewer calories too!

This vegan strawberry banana smoothie is 100% plant-based, and contains a whole day’s vitamin C in just one glass. Dosing up on vitamin C can help support your immune system so you’re able to fight off bugs and illnesses.
Vegan Strawberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients
This smoothie contains just 3 simple ingredients. But don’t be fooled by its simplicity, it’s totally delicious too…
- 10-15 strawberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 120ml (½ a cup) cold water
We usually have a stash of chopped bananas in the freezer, but if you’d like freezing instructions then check out this article. Sometime we like to mix it up by adding a spoonful of vegan protein powder too (especially if we’re consuming it after a workout).
Vegan Strawberry Banana Smoothie Directions
Wash the strawberries thoroughly and remove the green hulls. Then blend all of the ingredients until smooth. If your blender has a hard time with frozen ingredients, then you can always leave the banana to defrost for 10-15mins before blending.
