    How are strawberry smoothies healthy?

    Strawberries offer many health benefits, according to Healthline:

    • Great source of vitamin C
    • Excellent source of potassium to keep your blood pressure in check
    • Antioxidants to reduce inflammation and detox the body
    • Lower on the glycemic index, meaning they don’t contain as much sugar as other fruits
    • Omega-3 fatty acids that help improve your mood

    To make sure you’re getting the most of the nutrients in strawberries, go for organic, as berries tend to be heavily sprayed with pesticides.Be mindful of the other ingredients you add to your smoothie if health is a factor for you. For example, here are some healthier ingredients you can substitute or add to your strawberry smoothie to make it healthier:

    How to make a strawberry banana smoothie?

    If you’re wondering, “how do you make a simple strawberry smoothie,” then this easy recipe is just what you’re looking for.

    Ingredients:

    • 2 cup frozen strawberries
    • 1 banana, sliced
    • ½ cup soymilk

    Instructions to make this 3-ingredient strawberry smoothie:

    • Step 1. Remove stems from strawberries and slice at least one day before you want to make your smoothie. Put in freezer.
    • Step 2. When you are ready to make your smoothie, peel and slice banana.
    • Step 3. Add all ingredients in a blender.
    • Step 4. Enjoy!

    Feel free to replace soymilk with a dairy or non-dairy beverage of your choice in this simple strawberry banana smoothie recipe. Almond milk is a popular option. For those who want more of a tropical feel, try using coconut water or a tangy juice like orange juice or pineapple juice instead.

    If you’d rather swap out fresh strawberries for the frozen strawberries in this smoothie, consider using a frozen banana. That way, you go without ice but still get the consistency you are looking for in your blended drink. We personally prefer not putting in ice cubes so the fruity flavor doesn’t get watered down.

    You can always add more liquid if you prefer thinner smoothies.
