We adore this easy strawberry smoothie. Banana is blended with strawberries for a naturally sweet and creamy base. Then we add extra nutrition with zucchini (you don’t really taste it), nut or seed butter, chia seeds and cinnamon.

strawberry banana smoothie ingredients
  • Banana adds creaminess, but it doesn’t stop there. They are a nutritional powerhouse packed with heart-healthy potassium, vitamin B6 and fiber. (You might also be interested in our easy banana smoothie recipe.)
  • Strawberries add natural sweetness and are rich in vitamins C and K. They also provide a good dose of fiber, folic acid, manganese and potassium. Try our Basic Strawberry Smoothie.
  • Zucchini also adds creaminess. It’s practically undetectable in the smoothie and provide Vitamin C, A, potassium, folate, and fiber.
  • Nut/Seed butter adds creaminess, flavor and protein. (You may like our homemade peanut butter recipe or homemade almond butter)
  • Chia seeds are rich in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and bring even more nutrition to the party.

  • PREP

This healthy strawberry smoothie recipe with banana is satisfying and delicious. If you can, use frozen banana — it makes the creamiest smoothies. Next time you have a bunch of bananas in the kitchen, chop a few up and freeze for smoothies another day.

Makes 2 small smoothies

You Will Need

1 medium (125 grams) ripe banana, 1 cup chopped

1 heaped cup (150 grams) fresh or frozen strawberries

1 1/2 cups (185 grams) chopped zucchini (about half a medium zucchini)

2 tablespoons nut butter like peanut or almond butter, see our homemade peanut butter recipe

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Pinch ground cinnamon

Pinch sea salt

1 cup water or milk (dairy or non-dairy)

Honey, agave or other sweetener as needed


    1Add banana, strawberries, zucchini, nut butter, chia seeds, cinnamon, salt and the water to a high speed blender. Blend on high until creamy and smooth. Taste then, if needed, adjust with a little sweetener. If the smoothie has trouble blending or seems too thick, add a little more liquid and blend until smooth.

    2Divide between two glasses (or add to one tall glass for a double serving). If you like, sprinkle some extra chia seeds and diced strawberries on top before serving.
