Ingredients in this strawberry orange banana smoothie recipe

You’ll need just 4 simple ingredients to make this dairy free strawberry orange banana smoothie:

  • Frozen strawberries: I recommend using frozen strawberries instead of fresh so that you don’t need to add additional ice cubes.
  • Banana: feel free to use a fresh or frozen one to naturally sweeten this smoothie.
  • Orange: there’s no orange juice concentrate in this recipe, just one fresh orange packed with vitamin C.
  • Almond milk: to help get the right consistency and keep the smoothie vegan & dairy free. You can use any milk you’d like but I like to use almond or cashew milk. For a tropical twist, try coconut milk.
  • Toppings: I love topping this smoothie with fresh banana or strawberry slices! Feel free to unsweetened coconut flakes. Yum!

Don’t like bananas? You can easily swap 1 cup frozen pineapple for a delicious, tropical flavor!

Nutritional Boosters:

  • Flaxseed meal: this is one of my favorite ingredients to add to smoothies for a little boost of fiber and minerals as well as healthy plant-based fatty acids. It’s especially great for nursing mamas as flaxseed can help increase milk supply. Usually a tablespoon is plenty! 
  • Chia seeds: add in a tablespoon of chia seeds to your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats and fiber. Great to slow down digestion and keep you fuller longer!
  • Hemp seeds: for a boost of healthy fats, omegas and minerals.
  • Oats: add about 1/3 cup oats to your smoothie for an additional thickness & heartiness. Do not use steel cut oats as they will not blend well.
  • Organic spinach: if you’re looking to get more greens in your smoothie, try adding a few cups of spinach. It may turn the smoothie a different color, but you won’t be able to taste the spinach.
  • Greek yogurt: add a boost of protein with a scoop of Greek yogurt (or your favorite, dairy free yogurt). You may have to reduce the almond milk to 1/2 cup in this smoothie when adding yogurt.
  • Protein powder or collagen peptides: another great way to add some protein. I recommend a plain or vanilla flavored protein powder in this recipe. Vegan, collagen and whey all work! I LOVE BPI’s new Veggie Protein line – you can check that out here in the web-exclusive section of the store. RYALL saves you 20%
