A delicious strawberry raspberry smoothie is the perfect drink to wake up to in the morning. It has a delightful blend of two berries, some amazingly creamy dairy and a touch of a natural sweetener (honey).
As with any smoothie, you may want to add some protein powder or other extras such as wheat germ, LSA and more. I find roughly one tablespoon is more than enough for the standard recipe, but you may find you need more or less.
This recipe will make enough for two people so keep that in mind when you go to make it. Basically like any smoothie, it won’t last for very long in the fridge, roughly only 2-3 days. I personally always try to make it fresh or make sure I drink it all on the same day.
As I mentioned above, it doesn’t matter if you fresh or frozen fruit in this recipe as the result will be roughly the same. You may find that when you use frozen fruit, your smoothie is a bit thicker and of course colder. Another pro that I should mention is that frozen fruit is often easier to get your hands on all year round unlike fresh which either becomes hugely expensive or poor quality in the off-season.

Strawberry Raspberry Smoothie Recipe
- 1 cup strawberries
- ½ cup raspberries
- ½ cup milk

- 1 Tbsp. honey
- Add the strawberries, raspberries, yogurt, milk, vanilla, and honey into a blender.
- Blitz until combined and smooth.
- Serve & Enjoy
- Adding about a ½ cup of ice to this recipe will help thicken it up even more. However, I should note that this particular smoothie will already come out pretty thick even with the absence of ice.
- As I mention in most of the recipes, you can replace the dairy with low-fat varieties. If you do, then you may not need the honey as low-fat dairy often has added sugar.
- You don’t have to use honey as other sweeteners such as just plain sugar will work just fine. I prefer to use a natural sweetener such as honey or maple syrup.
One thing that you will love about this strawberry and raspberry smoothie is how easy it is to make quickly. If you want to make things even faster, then you should measure the fruit ahead of time and keep them in serving sized bags in the freezer. This way you can just pull one serving out and blend with the dairy.
