Strawberry Banana Recipe Without Yogurt

In my house, some folks actually live on smoothies on certain days. We keep trying all manner of combos, enriching the recipes with nutritious ingredients.

Though smoothies taste like dessert, I find smoothies more healthier than ice cream. I have convinced my children and they have joined the wagon. Smoothie over ice cream.

One of our favorite combos is made of strawberries and bananas. The strawberries are sweet and tart in flavor, the immense sweetness of the banana balances out the tartness in the strawberries.


The combination is unforgettable to your taste buds. Other than taste, strawberries are very nutritious, full of antioxidants that get rid of free radicals in your body. Bananas are a great source of potash, important for your health.

With an opportunity to make your own smoothie at home, you can add nutritious and natural ingredients such as moringa and nuts. It’s possible to eliminate artificial sweeteners and use unrefined and natural sweeteners such as stevia or honey.

I will be sharing with you a recipe that is suitable for those who are lactose intolerant. I have two of them in my house but they do not miss on the smoothie goodness whenever we make smoothies with dairy products!

Frozen strawberries

Strawberries are popularly known as the ‘queen of fruits’. Strawberries possess sweetness and juiciness with a slightly tart taste.

Strawberries are very delicious when raw or cooked in various dishes ranging from savory to sweet.

Strawberries contain vitamins, fibers, and antioxidants known as polyphenols. They do not have sodium, fat, or any cholesterol. You can substitute it with other fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, or pineapples.

To get a creamy smoothie, use frozen strawberries in your recipe.

Apple juice

Apple juice elevates the deliciousness of the smoothie by introducing an extra tone of tartness and sweetness.

The juice makes the smoothie a little runny as frozen bananas and strawberries make quite a thick smoothie.

Pro Tip


Frozen fruits need a powerful mortar to crush. If you do not trust your blender like I could not trust mine, try this tip.

Use a food processor to crush the frozen fruits. Transfer the crushed fruits to the blender then add the apple juice. Keep blending the mixture till you get a smooth consistency.

A standard food processor is more powerful compared to most regular kitchen blenders. To enjoy smoothie making, purchase a powerful blender.
