This strawberry banana coconut smoothie is as pretty to look at as it is to drink! This dairy free smoothie is a delicious allergy friendly breakfast.
This strawberry banana coconut smoothie is 100% for sure the easiest smoothie you will ever make. It’s so silly simple I wondered if I should post it, but it’s my favorite right now, so I figured why not?
One of the easiest breakfast options is a smoothie. If you have food allergies, it’s easy to make a smoothie that suits your dietary needs.
Dairy free? Use non-dairy milk or juice.
Nut free? Leave out any nut butters. Use sunbutter in your smoothie if you wish! I love to make this banana smoothie with sunbutter now that we have nut allergies in our house.
I know when I have a busy morning, I am desperate for a quick and healthy breakfast. Sometimes I have time to make a breakfast skillet or pancakes, but more often than not, I am in a hurry. A delicious, fresh, dairy free smoothie is just the thing to start my day.
And it’s simple to make smoothies that kids love. You don’t have to drink green smoothies to reap the health benefits. This strawberry banana coconut smoothie is full of potassium and vitamin C.
Should you use fresh or frozen fruit in a smoothie?
If you use frozen fruit, the smoothie will be thicker and frostier – that’s my preference. But fresh fruit will work, too! The smoothie will just be thinner. With the frozen bananas inside, it’s like drinking a frosty strawberry milkshake.
What non-dairy milk should you use in a smoothie?
Any non-dairy milk that works for your diet should work well in a smoothie. Use whatever milk you like!
Can you make smoothies ahead of time?
It doesn’t work too well to make smoothies ahead of time, especially if you use frozen fruit. The smoothie will separate, and the texture won’t be the best. Once you make this strawberry banana coconut smoothie, drink it right away for the best quality.
Can I use different berries?
Yes, feel free to use raspberries or blueberries instead of strawberries if you wish!
