Tips for making the Best Strawberry Smoothie

Use frozen strawberries for an ultra-concentrated strawberry flavor. For the best results, freeze fresh in-season strawberries. They'll also help you get that perfect smoothie texture.

Homemade strawberry jam will taste best, but you can use store-bought jam and get delicious results.

Any type of milk is fine for this recipe. For vegans and vegetarians, plant-based milk like almond milk, oat milk, and coconut milk will be especially delicious.

If you don't want to use milk at all, you can substitute yogurt (or plant-based yogurt) for a rich creamy smoothie.

You can make this smoothie even healthier by adding ground flaxseeds, chia seeds, or protein powder.

Strawberry Smoothie Variations

You can use this recipe with any kind of fruit. Blackberries, blueberries, bananas, mango, raspberries, or any combination of frozen fruit and fruit preserves you like!

To make a decadent smoothie, leave out the milk and use ice cream or heavy cream instead.

How to Store Strawberry Smoothies

Pour your smoothie into an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Frozen smoothies will last for up to 3 months.
