Iced Strawberry Smoothie ✻ Random Act of Love

Let’s drink some strawberries today to celebrate June as Strawberry Month here on the blog! This drink is such a refreshing treat, presenting the essence of strawberries in a glass. You’ll want to whip up an Iced Strawberry Smoothie when the hot weather strikes.

A Random Act of Strawberry Kindness

Way back in 2013 I came across a post on the lovely blog Kitchen Heals Soul by Janice Lawandi (do check it out). It struck a chord with me, because Janice told the story of how her father used to surprise her with a glass of this strawberry drink. Such a simple act of kindness, to give someone you love a treat you made just for them.

The other reason the post made an impression on me is because a drink consisting largely of puréed strawberries just sounded so good. I had one of those “why didn’t I think of this?” moments when I read about it.

A Refreshing Variation: My Iced Strawberry Smoothie

I used Janice’s recipe as a jumping off point, not really jumping very far as I only added lime juice to come up with this minor variation.

I surprised the Culinary Enthusiast with a tall, cold glass of it one hot Saturday morning as he was puttering around doing chores outside. We sat at the table on the veranda together, chatting about our planned trip to the beach that afternoon and enjoying this refreshing icy smoothie, the flavour of the strawberries enhanced by the mint and lime. I didn’t add any sugar, letting the natural sweetness and tartness of the berries speak for themselves. And can you imagine the fragrance? Strawberries, mint, lime … heady stuff!

Janice was right: an Iced Strawberry Smoothie is a berry delicious random act of love.

What You Need

Here’s what you need in order to make the best strawberry smoothie recipe:

Frozen strawberries- we used frozen strawberries, but fresh strawberries will work as well. We prefer frozen strawberries so that you don’t have to use any ice. Check out our tutorial on how to freeze strawberries.

Banana- either a fresh or frozen banana will work for this recipe! Check out our tutorial on how to freeze bananas for smoothies.

Greek yogurt- Greek yogurt adds a decent amount of protein and will make your smoothie extra creamy. Feel free to use any kind you wish. We went with plain Greek yogurt, but vanilla or strawberry would work too.

Pro tip: to keep this smoothie 100% plant-based, use a dairy-free yogurt!

Orange Juice: the way to get that cafe-worthy flavor is the orange juice! We love the flavor and the boost of vitamin c. Make sure to use 100% orange juice with no added sugar.


  • Yogurt rocks: We went back and forth about whether or not to use yogurt in this recipe and at the end of the day, a strawberry smoothie with yogurt is just better than one without! It adds a bit of a tang and extra protein. 
  • Orange juice is key: We also tested this recipe with different kinds of liquid such as almond milk, normal cow’s milk, and water and orange juice won over and over again.

Perfect Strawberry Smoothie

Here’s the most perfect strawberry smoothie you’ll find! It’s easy to blend up and has the best creamy texture and fruity flavor.

Strawberry smoothie

Have you met a perfect strawberry smoothie? Smoothies aren’t as easy to throw together it seems. Sure, you can throw random fruit and yogurt in the blender and whiz it up. But for the perfect creamy texture and the perfect just sweet enough fruit flavor? You’ve got to know something about smoothies. Alex and I have finally found our perfect strawberry smoothie recipe, which is below. Make it, memorize it, and make a perfect healthy smoothie on repeat!

What makes it a perfect strawberry smoothie?

Alex and I have been cooking for years and have a vegetarian cookbook under our belt, have mastered techniques like sourdough bread and pizza and lots of cocktails. So we decided: why not master smoothies? We started with this strawberry smoothie recipe. Here’s what it’s perfect, to us:

  • Light and creamy texture. It’s easy for smoothies to turn out too icy or thick. This one is light and creamy, with just the right icy and airy texture.
  • Subtly sweet, fruity flavor. Flavor is the variable: often smoothies are too bitter or overly sweet. It’s also easy to cover up the “signature” flavor. This strawberry smoothie is lightly sweet, with just the right berry essence.

Ingredients for this strawberry smoothie

Here’s what you’ll need to make this strawberry smoothie! Alex and I were careful to choose healthy ingredients for this smoothie: no overly sugary juices or syrups. Here’s what we selected:

  • Frozen strawberries: It’s easy to find and store frozen berries, and they add a great icy texture to this smoothie. If you want to use fresh berries, use a frozen banana.
  • Fresh banana: Our pet peeve is smoothie recipes that call for frozen bananas, because we never keep them on hand! Usually we want a smoothie recipe now. So we customized this one to use a fresh banana.
  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt gives this recipe a protein boost and helpful probiotics. (If you love yogurt you could add a touch more.) It also makes for a perfect creamy texture.
  • Ice: Here’s the most important part — ice is essential to a perfect strawberry smoothie! It makes just the right frothy texture. We’ve tried it without and it really makes a difference. Do not omit it!
  • Milk: You need just the right amount of liquid in a smoothie to get it to blend. Not enough and the blender gets stuck (the worst!), and too much it tastes milky. You can also use non-dairy (see below).
  • Maple syrup: Adding a hint of maple brings out the sweetness in the berries. If you eat a low sugar diet you could omit, but it doesn’t quite taste sweet enough with no sweetener.

How to make it plant based / vegan!

You can make this strawberry smoothie plant-based or vegan by doing the following:

  • Make our strawberry banana smoothie. Try our Strawberry Banana Smoothie: it’s vegan and uses only 2 ingredients!
  • Substitute non-dairy milk AND vegan yogurt or ½ banana for the yogurt. We like using oat milk or almond milk. Oat milk is usually a little sweeter and creamier so we tend to like that a little more. You could also try coconut milk, which adds a nice coconut essence, or soy milk. Then for the yogurt, use vegan yogurt or another ½ banana.

Optional add-ins & variations

Of course, you can mix in whatever you’d like to customize your healthy strawberry smoothie! But at the same time: if you want it to be perfect, you’ve got to use flavors that work. Here are some ideas:

  • Almond butter. Almond goes well with strawberry. Use about 1 tablespoon, 2 for a stronger almond flavor (it will also dull the color a bit).
  • Vanilla. Use ¼ to ½ teaspoon vanilla to heighten the flavors.
  • Mint or basil. Add a few fresh mint or basil leaves for an herbaceous spin.
  • Pineapple. Substitute 1 cup of the frozen berries for 1 cup frozen pineapple. Go to Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie.
  • Mango. Substitute 1 cup of the frozen berries for 1 cup frozen mango. Go to Strawberry Mango Smoothie.
  • Banana. Add another ripe banana and remove the Greek yogurt. Go to Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
  • Blueberries. Substitute 1 cup of the frozen strawberries for blueberry. Or go to Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie.
  • Chocolate. Add cocoa powder; go to Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie.

Things not to add? Handfuls of spinach leaves! They turn this smoothie into an unappealing shade of brown. If you want a green smoothie, go to our Perfect Green Smoothie.

For a refreshing fruity snack or breakfast that even picky eaters will love, make a strawberry smoothie. It’s nutritious, with vitamins and nutrients from the fruit as well as protein from yogurt, but it’s also fun and sweet enough to serve as a frosty dessert. Swap out your next milkshake for this smoothie, and you won’t be disappointed.

A strawberry smoothie can be made with fresh or frozen strawberries. If you’re using fresh berries, add a few ice cubes to cool it down. If you’re using frozen strawberries, look for presliced frozen strawberries, since they are easier to blend. Whole berries will work, too; just make sure to blend long enough to achieve a smooth consistency. If you have a high-powered blender, smoothie making will go a lot easier than if you use an old-fashioned blender that tends to have a more difficult time completely incorporating all the ingredients, especially ones that are frozen. Try using a food processor if you’re not sure if your blender is up to the task, or use all fresh fruit in your smoothie and add the ice at the very end of the blending process.

Serve immediately or pour into an insulated cup with a straw and take it with you. Smoothies are a great grab-and-go breakfast or snack, especially on a hot day, and kids will love this perfectly sweet strawberry version.
