Healthy Strawberry Banana Smoothie For Weight Loss

This 5-ingredient healthy strawberry banana yogurt smoothie is made with nutritious ingredients, contains no refined sugar, and is sure to be a hit with both kids and adults! Try this low-calorie diet if you want to lose weight.

Ingredients for 1 serving| total time: 5 minutes

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of milk (oat or almond)
  • 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of hemp hearts or Chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of Quick oats (optional)


Add all of your ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Taste. If you find it’s not sweet enough, you can add a bit of honey or maple syrup, although I found it was definitely sweet enough without it! The key is using an overripe banana to get that optimal sweetness.

You can also use a frozen banana and fresh strawberries since the mixture gets really thick if you use all frozen fruit. It can also be really tough to blend if you don’t have a super-powerful blender.

That being said, if you like your smoothie on the thicker side, go for it! If you choose to use all frozen fruit, you may need to add a bit more milk to help it blend together.

I find that adding a frozen banana is sufficient to provide that thickened, cool, and creamy consistency that we tend to love with smoothies.

I generally don’t add ice since it can make it more like a slushy and has a tendency to water down the mixture. But once again, smoothies are pretty flexible so feel free to add some ice if that’s what floats your boat.

Can you make this smoothie in advance?

It can be, however, I generally find that it tastes best when you drink it fresh. It tends to thin out a bit if left in the fridge for a few hours since the fruit thaws out and doesn’t have that same refreshing taste and consistency.

If you choose to make it ahead of time, you may wish to add a couple of ice cubes to the mixture and blend it up again to thicken up the texture.

Ingredients Substitutions

Don’t have Greek yogurt? Feel free to sub in regular plain yogurt, just keep in mind that the protein content will be reduced.

Want to make it dairy-free? Sub in a dairy-free yogurt like coconut or almond yogurt and be sure to use a dairy-free milk alternative like almond milk, rice, or soy milk.
