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.
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
Add 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.
Divide 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.
