This simple strawberry banana and kiwi smoothie takes just a few minutes to make for a healthy breakfast or snack! You need just six nutritious ingredients and a blender to whip up this refreshing smoothie for one.

This healthy fruit smoothie is a simple and refreshing breakfast or snack. It is naturally sweetened with strawberries, banana, and kiwi, and provides high quality protein thanks to nutritious Greek yogurt. This smoothie is a green smoothie, thanks to the addition to baby spinach. I promise, you can’t taste it – it’s a great green smoothie recipe for beginners.

Smoothies are easy to make and super delicious, but sometimes aren’t as nutritious as we like to think. As a Registered Dietitian, I love to make smoothies that actually fill you up with protein and fiber, and don’t leave you hungry an hour after drinking. Because if you are drinking a smoothie to replace a meal, it should be a well balanced meal as much as possible!

Ingredients in strawberry banana kiwi smoothie

You need just six ingredients to make this smoothie!

  • Frozen strawberries
  • Banana
  • Kiwi
  • Baby spinach
  • Plain Greek yogurt

Kitchen tools needed: All you need is a blender to make smoothies!

How to make smoothies

  1. If your fruit isn’t frozen, chop it up and freeze it the night before.
  2. When you’re ready to make a smoothie, add all the ingredients to your blender.
  3. Blend on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until everything is smooth and creamy with no lumps remaining.
  4. Pour and enjoy!

Smoothie making tip: Add the liquid ingredients first, then the softer ingredients, followed by the hard, frozen ingredients last. This helps your smoothie work more efficiently to blend everything up!

How to cut a kiwi for freezing

To make this smoothie super thick, I like to use all fruit that has been frozen. Here is an easy way to peel and cut a kiwi so that you can freeze it.

  • Use a paring knife to peel off the kiwi skin. This works better than a vegetable peeler because kiwis can be soft and delicate.
  • Cut the kiwi into quarters.
  • Place the kiwi quarters on a plate in one single layer, making sure the pieces are not touching.
  • Put the plate in your freezer. After about an hour, they should be hard enough to not stick to each other when stored.
  • Transfer the kiwi pieces to a storage baggie and squeeze out as much air as you can. Pop it in the freezer until you need it!

You can use this process to freeze any type of fruit for smoothies!

Best blender for smoothies

A Vitamix blender, while expensive, is a very good blender for smoothies, soups, sauces, and more. It is certainly an investment piece, and you can purchase a refurbished blender to save on cost.

For a more affordable option, Ninja blenders get great reviews and work well for smoothies. This smaller personal blender is a solid option for less than $100!
