15 Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe Ideas for Weight Loss

A strawberry banana smoothie is one of my favorite smoothie flavor combinations because it tastes absolutely delicious and reminds me of childhood.

This iconic pink drink is often one of the first fruit smoothies people tried back in the days before green smoothies became popular. I have my own happy memories of making these cool drinks on hot summer afternoons back in high school.

A strawberry and banana smoothie makes the perfect breakfast or afternoon snack, and it’s an easy meal you can feel good about. Instead of grabbing a preservative filled, hot pink yogurt, make your own!

In this article you will find 15 recipes (3 new to this article!) and the benefits of strawberries and bananas.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Benefits

Strawberry banana smoothies are a sweet, cold drink typically made by blending together just 3 ingredients: strawberries, bananas, and milk. Sometimes yogurt, almond milk, soy milk or ice is added to improve the creaminess and thickness of the recipe.

The main fruits in a strawberry banana smoothie recipe provide a lot of nutritional benefits.

Bananas are rich in fiber, antioxidants and several nutrients. The high amount of potassium in bananas helps decrease your risk of kidney stones. They’re also high in fiber and resistant starch, which helps feed the friendly bacteria in your gut and help protect against colon cancer (1, 2, 3).

Strawberries are a good source of vitamin C, manganese, folate and potassium, as well as several other vitamins and minerals. They’re very rich in antioxidants and certain plant compounds that have heart health benefits and may help control blood sugar (4, 5).

Depending on how it’s made, a 12 ounce serving contains around 188 to 210 calories, is usually low in fat, and contains a good amount of protein (between 2 and 16 grams). They can be higher in naturally occurring sugars, so it’s important not to add more sweeteners (like sugar or honey) than is necessary to sweeten it. Use no sweeteners if possible.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie calories can range between 188-210 calories per serving.

This is a really delicious smoothie recipe that’s very high in antioxidants and is very kid friendly. My daughter loves the taste and distinct color of this recipe, and asks for it often.

When I’m in the mood for a tropical flavored drink that doesn’t include alcohol, this is my go-to recipe. For me it doesn’t get any better than my two favorite ingredients, strawberries and bananas, combined with my third favorite ingredient, pineapple!

Pineapples are a great source of many nutrients, like vitamin C, copper, manganese, and folate.

The calories in a smoothie can vary, as you probably saw above in the 15 different recipes.

If you are looking to cut calories I recommend the following recipe changes:

  1. Use Almond Milk in place of Dairy Milk
  2. Skip the sweeteners, bananas are already very sweet
  3. Use water (or Almond Milk) in place of juice to save calories
  4. Try making your smoothie a green smoothie, add 1 cup of baby spinach to any smoothie
  5. Skip the ice cream or frozen yogurt recipes altogether, or freeze skim or almond milk ice cubes to reach a similar creamy consistency

Here is a quote from the above article:

Depending on how it’s made, a 12 ounce serving contains around 188 to 210 calories, is usually low in fat, and contains a good amount of protein (between 2 and 16 grams). They can be higher in naturally occurring sugars, so it’s important not to add more sweeteners (like sugar or honey) than is necessary to sweeten it. Use no sweeteners if possible.

3. Are McDonalds Strawberry Banana Smoothies good for you?

The short answer- they are not that bad!

We can’t always be 100% sure the quality of ingredients they are using at McDonalds, but as you can see below, the nutrition (taken from their website) is not too bad:

Now, I always recommend skipping all drive through restaurants, the quality of food is not high in nutrition… but I also understand that people also need healthy options from these restaurants.

In this case, it’s a healthy option, so go ahead and order it… but skip the hash browns.
