Recipe Substitutions

  • This recipe doubles, triples, and even quadruples very well. This is good because everyone’s going to want one!
  • If you’re lactose intolerant or prefer a dairy-free option, you can substitute the milk with almond, soy, oat, coconut, or other plant-based milk.
  • Instead of using regular yogurt, you can use Greek yogurt, coconut milk yogurt, or any other yogurt alternatives. 
  • To reduce the sugar content, replace the sweetened yogurt with unsweetened yogurt or Greek yogurt and add a natural sweetener like honey, maple syrup, or agave syrup to taste.
  • Feel free to experiment with different fruits like blueberries, raspberries, mangoes, peaches, or bananas to create unique variations, or use the ones below!

Smoothie Variations

Tropical Twist:

  • Replace half of the strawberries with frozen pineapple chunks.
  • Add one ripe banana for extra creaminess and sweetness.
  • Substitute the milk with coconut milk for a tropical flavor.
  • Optional: Add a squeeze of lime juice for a tangy kick.

Berry Blast:

  • Replace half of the strawberries with a mix of frozen blueberries and raspberries.
  • Add a handful of fresh spinach or kale for added nutrition.
  • Substitute the milk with almond or any other plant-based milk you choose.
  • Optional: Add a tablespoon of chia seeds for added texture and fiber.

Creamy Avocado:

  • Replace half of the strawberries with ripe avocado chunks.
  • Add a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup for sweetness.
  • Substitute the milk with unsweetened Greek yogurt for a creamy texture.
  • Optional: Sprinkle some crushed pistachios or granola on top for crunch.


  • Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder (vanilla or strawberry flavor works well).
  • Substitute the milk with soy milk or any other high-protein milk.
  • Add a tablespoon of almond or peanut butter for extra protein and flavor.
  • Optional: Sprinkle some flax seeds or hemp seeds for added nutrients.

Citrus Burst:

  • Replace half of the strawberries with frozen mango chunks.
  • Add the juice and zest of one orange for a refreshing citrus flavor.
  • Substitute the milk with freshly squeezed orange juice or a combination of orange juice and coconut water.
  • Optional: Garnish with a slice of fresh orange or a sprig of mint.

Storage & Serving Tips

SERVE: Like any smoothie, a strawberry smoothie is best served immediately.

STORE: The leftover smoothie will be kept in the refrigerator for 12 hours. You may need to stir it before drinking because it may have separated.

FREEZE: Strawberry smoothies freeze very well. In fact, for a fun frozen breakfast treat, I like to pour the smoothie into popsicle molds and freeze it overnight. But, of course, my kids flip out when I tell them they can have a popsicle for breakfast!
