Is a smoothie a healthy breakfast option? A smoothie is a good option no matter what time of day! I eat smoothies all the time. This strawberry blueberry smoothie is a simple smoothie recipe is one of my go-to recipes for smoothies since it is made with the three main fruits I keep around. These measurements are not exact as I do not measure for smoothies. Estimating is best!

- Banana - adds a nice creamy texture
- Blueberries - frozen makes the smoothie more cold, but you can also use fresh
- Strawberries - main pink color
- Orange juice - adds hint of orange flavor but also liquid to help smoothie blend
How to fill the strawberry blueberry smoothie blender cup:
I fill my cup to the brim with fruit before adding milk and blending because I have a single serving cup. This gives me a very dense smoothie. Sometimes I even add more fruit after the first blend to make it more dense. You can use less fruit or more milk if you want it more liquid-y.
If your blender is bigger, try using the measuring units on the side to judge how much fruit and liquid you are putting in.
Easy strawberry blueberry smoothie variations:
- The fruit options are endless when it comes to smoothies! If you have a fruit laying around your house that you need to use up, definitely try it in a smoothie! I am never afraid of trying new smoothie options. Smoothies are easy to add new fruits to.
- Omit fruits you do not like - if you do not like bananas, you can take it out of this recipe, and add more blueberries or strawberries instead.
- Spinach - this is an unpopular opinion, but I like to add spinach to my smoothies if I am trying to use up my spinach. Honestly, you can barely taste it. Great option if you are trying to get more greens in.
- Seeds - I usually eat my smoothies without seeds, but you can add chia seeds for extra nutrition and thickness.
What is a good blender for smoothies?
I bought a ninja bullet off of Mercari, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! The smoothie cup is the perfect size for a smoothie. It blends extremely fast as well, and it is not super loud unless adding ice. This strawberry blueberry smoothie recipe makes a 12 oz ninja bullet smoothie.
How to store homemade smoothies:
I tend to eat my smoothies right away! If I find that I cannot finish the whole smoothie in one sitting, I place the cup in the fridge until I am hungry enough to drink the rest. How long can a smoothie last in the fridge? Probably only around a day or so or else they start to change consistency.
Typically, I do not freeze smoothies as they tend to not taste as fresh while coming out of the freezer. If you wanted to freeze your strawberry blueberry smoothie, you definitely can though!
