This paleo strawberry coconut smoothie is an easy recipe that's sweet and creamy with no dairy or added sugar.
It's a beautiful sunny day today and it got me dreaming about spring. Even though it's technically still winter, the sun makes it feel warm. And Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow so that means an early spring is on the way 🙂
This paleo strawberry coconut smoothie is like spring in a glass. It's sweet and creamy with no added sugar or dairy. And it's super simple fruit smoothie with just four basic ingredients.
Strawberry banana coconut milk smoothie
I love the strawberries and cream flavor of this smoothie. The coconut milk makes it so creamy. And the strawberries add the classic flavor and delicate pink color. This coconut milk smoothie gets it's sweetness from a frozen ripe banana so it contains no added sweeteners.
Quick tip: freeze extra ripe bananas so you have them ready to go for smoothie making. Always peel the bananas first, but you can freeze them either whole or cut into chunks. Frozen bananas are easy to slice or break into chunks as needed.
Of course, if you wanted to make a lower carb version of this strawberry smoothie you can always omit the banana and sweeten your smoothie to taste with stevia, monk fruit or you favorite low carb sweetener. In this case, I would use frozen strawberries and a couple ice cubes to keep the smoothie frozen---and use coconut cream (scooped off of the top of a can of chilled coconut milk) to make it extra creamy.
Be sure to use full-fat coconut milk to get the extra thick consistency. Look for coconut milk in a BPA free can or carton with no additives. The ingredients list should be just coconut and water. It's best to avoid refrigerated coconut milk because it generally has added gums or processed food chemicals.
The touch of vanilla makes this strawberry banana smoothie recipe taste like ice cream—and it reminds me of a strawberry milkshake. I use organic vanilla extract, but you can always use vanilla powder or scrape the seeds from a piece of vanilla bean if you prefer. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.
