This Strawberry and Blueberry Smoothie is,
- Quick to make
- Super delicious
To make this creamy and super refreshing smoothie, you will need Strawberries, Blueberries, Milk, Yogurt, Vanilla Extract, and Honey.
Strawberry and Blueberries – Freeze the fresh berries overnight to use in the smoothie, or use the already frozen ones. Freezing the berries gives a nice creamy texture to your smoothies.
You can also add some raspberries to make it even more delicious.
Vanilla Extract – This is optional, but it does add a nice little hint of vanilla flavor, making the smoothie even more delicious.
Others – Just add in milk, yogurt, and some honey, blend it and your smoothie is ready. Use whichever milk or yogurt you fancy. Full fat, low fat, greek yogurt, vegan milk, and yogurt, everything works great here.
I have added honey to make it slightly sweet as both strawberries and blueberry, are low on sweetness and have a tangy taste.
How to make Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie?
Wash ½ cup blueberries and 100 g strawberries. Chop the green leafy part of the strawberries and chop the flesh into small pieces. Freeze the chopped strawberries and blueberries overnight or for 6-8 hours. Freezing the berries makes the smoothie creamier. If you have forgotten to freeze the berries, add a few ice cubes while blending the smoothie.
When ready to make the smoothie, take out the frozen berries from the freezer and add them to the large jar of a heavy-duty blender. If the berries are too hard, leave them on the counter for 5 minutes before adding them to the jar. Add ½ cup milk, ½ cup yogurt, ½ tsp vanilla extract, and 1 tbsp honey to the jar.
Blend everything until smooth. Strawberry and blueberry smoothie is ready to serve. Pour it into serving glasses. Garnish with some more berries and a sprig of mint and serve chilled.

Pro Tips by Neha
Make sure to freeze the fruits a few hours before making the smoothie. Using frozen fruits makes the smoothie creamier and you don’t need ice to chill it.
Use a good high-speed blender to make the smoothie. We don’t want chunks of fruits coming into your mouth.
You can freeze strawberries when they are in season like I do and then keep using them throughout the year. You can do the same with blueberries and other fruits too.
To make this recipe vegan, use any vegan milk and yogurt instead of regular milk and yogurt. If as a vegan you do not eat honey as well, you can replace it with agave nectar, molasses, maple syrup, etc.
You can add more ingredients and make a new variation every time. Some of the options are spinach, orange juice, chia seeds, nut butter, mixed berries, pineapple, banana, cherry, avocado, and mango.
You can replace the honey or sugar with stevia or monkfruit for a low-calorie sugar-free drink.
Add protein powder of your choice to this smoothie.
Refrigerating fresh fruit smoothies is not recommended, but if you end up making a bigger batch than required, you can refrigerate the smoothie in an airtight container for one more day.
Do not store for longer, otherwise, it will split and won’t taste good. Also when you are consuming it again, shake it well before pouring it into the glass.
