Cool, creamy and fruity – this strawberry avocado smoothie is one way to cure those mid-winter blues. I’ve been making it in the morning as a bright start to the day or as an afternoon snack if I start feeling a little slumpy because slumpy is so not a good look.

It’s pretty in pink, it’s a banana-free smoothie but isn’t lacking in creaminess, it’s a quick 5-minute prep and blend situation, and it’s got a strawberries and cream theme going on with a surprise pop of lime that wakes up all the flavors.


  • It starts with frozen strawberries, but you can really use any kind of frozen berry you like if you want to switch up the flavor. Blueberries, raspberries, a combo of berries will all work well.
  • There’s some avocado in there, too, which adds lots of richness and creaminess but you can’t taste it. I added it to up the happy quotient because avocados are full of good-for-you things.
  • Some honey adds sweetness and a splash of fresh lime juice adds some zing.
  • I use 2% milk but any kind of milk you love will work!

Some Tips

Two quick tips for the best smoothie experience:

  • If you can find sliced frozen strawberries buy them. If not, you can use whole ones but even my high-powered blender has trouble breaking them down all the way sometimes. My advice: if you use whole ones place them in the blender with the other ingredients and let them thaw out for five minutes or so.
  • I am particular about smooth thickness. I prefer a thinner smoothie, but if you like yours thicker cut back on the milk. Start with less and add more until yours is just right.

If you’ve got a case of the slumps, make it! If you feel amazing and not slumpy at all you should still make it. It will just add to the amazingness.

Happy blending 🍓

  1. I quadrupled the recipe so I could have smoothies for the week (and also use up a whole avocado). I used a quart of fresh strawberries and subbed creamy oat milk since I don’t do dairy. I was also out of lime juice, so I skipped that. The result was not unlike a strawberry milkshake! It gave me a nice boost too (much-needed). This is a great and filling option for an afternoon snack.

  2. would never have thought of this pairing and it is wonderful and fresh. thanks for the tip on the strawberries, worked out perfectly.
