Smoothie of the Month: Strawberry Strong

June 9th, 2014 | Fun, Nutrition and Health

It’s time to kick off the month of June with another smoothie of the month. In light of all the fresh strawberries (its strawberry picking month), we were inspired to focus on this fantastic berry.

The Recipe

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs peanut butter
  • 1 tsp honey

Mix it up, drink it down. So refreshing, so healthy, and so filling.

The Benefits Breakdown

This month’s smoothie ingredients are nothing short of healthful. Take a look at a few of their benefits…


  • Strawberries contain ellagic acid, an antioxidant that prevents collagen destruction. Healthy collagen = wrinkle-free.
  • High vitamin C levels means it can fight free radicals in the body to maintain healthy cells.
  • Antioxidants in strawberries work to decrease inflammation in the body.
  • High potassium content makes strawberries ideal for those with high blood pressure.

Greek Yogurt:

  • Plain Greek yogurt contains nutrients that are good for your skin, including lactic acid, zinc calcium and B-vitamins.
  • Greek yogurt offers between 15-20 grams of protein per cup

Peanut Butter:

  • Peanut butter is a great source of healthy fats and can help improve overall skin complexion.
  • Peanut butter has both vitamin B2 and B12. Diets lacking B12 have been reported to cause pale skin, while B2 is often used to help those with skin problems (rosacea, skin rashes, pustules, etc.)
  • Peanut butter contains folic acid. Folic acid is especially important during pregnancy, to deliver a healthy baby.


  • Honey is a natural antibacterial, great for acne prevention and treatment.
  • Honey contains flavonoids, a type of antioxidant that can reduce the risk of heart disease and various types of cancers.
  • Speaking of its antioxidant content, these can improve aging.

We hope that you enjoy this month’s recipe. Let us know what you think on Twitter!
