Why I love this banana berry smoothie
I started making this smoothie a long time ago. Back when we could still have milk and yogurt and we didn’t have a care in the world.
It’s a simple, creamy smoothie without much added sugar. You can customize it with your favorite yogurt (sweetened or unsweetened), and you will get a delicious smoothie.

How to make a vegan berry smoothie
To make our berry banana smoothie dairy free, we used oat milk and strawberry vegan yogurt. You can use any milk and yogurt you prefer.
I even used to make this recipe with cow’s milk and dairy yogurt. Do whatever works for you. No judgement here.
To make this smoothie, combine your ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth, adding more liquid if needed.

Tips for making banana berry smoothies
How do you make a smoothie thicker?
If you want to make this recipe thicker, use less liquid or add in an extra banana (or more yogurt).
Do you need ice to make a smoothie?
Since this recipe uses frozen fruit, you don’t need any ice cubes. In general, if you want your smoothie to be cold and on the thicker side, I recommend using something frozen, whether that’s ice or frozen ingredients.Print
