What ingredients are in a strawberry lemonade smoothie?
This 5 ingredient smoothie bowl is made with:
- Strawberries: Strawberries provide sweetness and a pretty pink appearance to this smoothie. They are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and contain vitamin C, potassium, manganese, and vitamin B9.
- Banana: Bananas help to create a creamy smoothie bowl consistency. They are also a great source of vitamin B6, potassium, and magnesium.
- Lemon juice: This ingredient is important for that authentic lemonade flavor. You can use the juice of fresh lemons or purchase pre-made lemon juice.
- Maple syrup: Maple syrup provides a subtle sweetness that balances the tart lemon juice. Instead of maple syrup, you can use coconut nectar, agave, or even honey if you’re not following a vegan diet.
- Plant-based milk: Pretty much any plant-based milk pairs well with this recipe, but the best options are unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk.
Use ripe bananas. Ripe bananas have a yellow peel with brown spots all over it. This level of ripeness is essential if you want a sweet, rich, and creamy smoothie bowl. Underripe bananas (with a bare yellow peel) are starchy rather than sweet. If you use underripe bananas, your smoothie will not be as sweet.
Use frozen fruit. I always recommend using frozen fruit for smoothie bowls. The goal is to achieve a thick consistency that is similar to soft serve ice cream. If you use fresh fruit, the smoothie will be too thin and runny. You can purchase pre-frozen fruit or freeze your own fresh fruit.
How to freeze bananas: Once the bananas have ripened, remove the peels and place the bananas in a ziplock bag or container. Store in the freezer for up to 1 month. I keep a dozen bananas in my freezer at all times so they’re always ready to go whenever I’m craving a smoothie bowl!
Adjust the amount of plant-based milk as needed. If you have a high-speed blender (like a Vitamix blender), you may be able to use less plant-based milk. I recommend using the smallest amount possible in order to get the blades of your blender moving. Using more liquid will create a thinner smoothie while less liquid will create a thicker smoothie.
