Copycat Naked Strawberry Banana Smoothie

If you have ever had a Naked strawberry banana smoothie, you will know how yummy it is!

However, Naked smoothies are expensive and loaded with sugar, unfortunately.

This is why I went on a journey to create my copycat recipe. I am pleased to say, that it tastes so close to the real thing!

Why You Will Love This Copycat Naked Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Copycat Naked Strawberry Banana Smoothie

While strawberry-banana smoothies are a very popular smoothie choice, this smoothie has something extra to offer.

It is not only much cheaper to make at home, but also much healthier too.

Here’s why I think you will love this smoothie:

  1. Familiar and Delicious Taste: Mirroring the popular flavor of Naked Juice’s Strawberry Banana smoothie, this recipe offers a similarly delightful and refreshing taste that’s sure to please fans of the original.
  2. Lower in Sugar: Compared to the store-bought version, this homemade smoothie contains less sugar, making it a healthier option without sacrificing sweetness.
  3. Cost-Effective: Making this smoothie at home is more budget-friendly than purchasing the pre-made smoothie, offering great taste at a fraction of the cost.
  4. Rich in Vitamin C: Packed with strawberries and lime juice, this smoothie is a vitamin C powerhouse, supporting immune health and skin vitality.
  5. Natural Ingredients: By using fresh, whole ingredients, you’re avoiding the preservatives and additives that can be found in commercial smoothies.
  6. Customizable: This recipe allows for customization based on personal taste and dietary needs, something pre-packaged smoothies can’t offer.
  7. Convenient and Quick: Easy to make with just a few simple ingredients, this smoothie is perfect for a quick breakfast, snack, or a refreshing drink any time of the day.

Optional Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes

My copycat recipe contains 4 simple ingredients, making this smoothie super easy and quick to make.

However, if you want to elevate this smoothie a bit more, here are some suggestions:

  1. Protein Boost: If you are not vegan, you can either add 1/2 cup of yogurt or use a scoop of protein powder.
  2. Leafy Green Packed: Incorporate a handful of leafy greens such as kale or spinach, for a boost of extra nutrients.
  3. Seeds & Nuts Power: Incorporate a tablespoon of either chia seeds, flaxseeds, nut butter, or both seeds and nut butter!
  4. Swap The Juice: Don’t have apple juice? Replace it with orange juice instead.

Out of the 8 blenders tested in this recipe, only Blendjet wasn’t compatible.

If you do own a Blendjet and want to make this recipe, you could, but you would need to use a lot more liquid to make it work.

This means the smoothie won’t come out as thick as mine did.
