- Strawberries: I used frozen strawberries for this smoothie recipe. They will add thickness to the smoothie.

- Banana: I used one fresh banana. It will add creaminess to the smoothie.
- Half-and-half: As a liquid, I used half-and-half. This will add additional creaminess to this smoothie. You can substitute it for any milk of your choice.

Expert Tips and Tricks
- Use a combination of frozen and fresh fruit: I like to use a combo of fresh and frozen fruit to get the perfect creaminess. If you use all frozen fruit, you will probably need more liquid. Otherwise, if you use all fresh fruit, you will need a little liquid to blend all ingredients.
- Adjust the liquid amount: This strawberry blackberry smoothie will be thick and creamy, but you will still be able to eat it with a smoothie straw. If you prefer to have an even thicker smoothie, gradually add liquid. Start with ¼ cup and add more if needed. On the other hand, if you like a thinner smoothie, add more liquid.
Substitutions and Variations
- Use non-dairy milk: To make it vegan, you can use almond milk or oat milk.
- Add some sweetener: This smoothie will be very refreshing and low in sugar, so add maple syrup if you prefer to add sweetness.
Like any smoothie, the toppings you can add are entirely based on your preference, and it’s easily customizable.
Some of the great options you’ll love are:
- Fresh fruit: Use fresh strawberries, blackberries, bananas, raspberries, etc.
- Nuts: Use almonds, hazelnuts, or any other nuts you prefer.
- Seeds: Use chia seeds, flax seeds, etc.
- Granola: Use any granola you like.
Whenever I make a smoothie, I always drink it right away. When you leave the smoothie in the fridge, the consistency and texture of the smoothie might change.
If you want to make just one portion, use half of the amount of the listed ingredients.
Yes, they do! Due to their nutritional value and being rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, they help detoxify your body with regular consumption.
I don’t recommend making this smoothie in advance, since the flavor and texture may alter. Instead, gather all ingredients except liquid, wash the fruit, and store them in a freezer in a sealed bag. Then when you are ready, just add all ingredients to a blender, add the liquid, and blend until smooth. Please note that you may need to adjust the liquid amount if using all frozen fruit.
