How to Make a Strawberry Banana Oat Smoothie
Making a smoothie is as simple as tossing ingredients into the blender pitcher and letting it do the work. The harder part is deciding what goes into the pitcher.
In the case of this strawberry banana oat smoothie, there are only four ingredients between you and a deliciously refreshing treat. It’s dairy-free, added-sugar-free, and vegan friendly.
We start with a combination of fresh and frozen bananas and strawberries. Then, instead of using whole oats, we use a combination of oat milk and oat milk yogurt. The results are smooth and creamy, without the chewy almost gluey texture (is it just me?) you can find in smoothies made with whole oats.

Optional Smoothie Add-Ins
In the culinary world if baking is more of a science and cooking is a balance between science and art, smoothie making would be 100% an art form. You start with a general idea of what you want then mix it up as you go along.
This recipe starts as a good basis, but it’s easy to adapt it to your own tastes and make it your own! Here are some common add-ins you can throw into this strawberry banana oat smoothie before blending:
- sweeteners – like honey, maple syrup, or stevia
- flavor boosters – like ginger root, lemon or lime juice, or fresh herbs like basil (—> one of my favorite additions to this strawberry banana oat smoothie!)
- whole seeds – like flax seed, chia, or hemp
- seed or nut butters – like almond butter, peanut butter, cashew nut butter, or sunflower seed butter
- nutritional supplements – vitamins, protein powders, collagen powders
