Strawberry Nutrition & Health Benefits

Strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C – a serving of 8 strawberries (1 cup) has about the same amount as an orange!

Vitamin C plays an essential role in immune function and helps form your body’s blood vessels, muscle, and collagen. It also helps your body absorb iron from foods and acts as an antioxidant.

In addition to Vitamin C, strawberries are also a source of dietary fibre (a 1 cup serving contains 3 grams). Fibre helps to lower blood cholesterol and promotes a healthy digestive system.

Strawberries also contain a small amount of other micronutrients, like:

  • potassium
  • vitamin B6
  • folate
  • phosphorus
  • magnesium

  • 1.5 cups almond milk, unsweetened (or other milk of choice)
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (or vegan alternative) (benefits of Greek yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup oats (rolled or quick)
  • 2 cups strawberries (or fruit of choice)
  • 2 Tbsp nut butter, unsweetened (almond or peanut)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4-5 ice cubes (or more as desired)
  • Optional: scoop of unflavoured protein powder or collagen


  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, starting with the almond milk (putting the liquid first helps to blend things easier!)
  • Blend until fully smooth. If things are a little too thick, add an extra splash of almond milk until desired texture is achieved. Enjoy!


*I recommend using either rolled/oat-fashioned oats or quick oats for this recipe. There is no need to cook them – simply add the raw oats directly to your blender.
*If you need to follow a gluten-free diet, be sure to use certified gluten-free oats.
  • This smoothie will keep for about 2 days in the fridge. Simply pour it into a jar with a lid and refrigerate. Separation is normal – just give the jar a good shake or put it in the blender again.
  • If you’d like to freeze this smoothie, pour it into silicone ice cube trays or muffin tins and place them in the freezer. Once frozen, you can pop out the smoothie “cubes” and store them in a freezer-safe bag. Just thaw them for a few hours or the night before you want the smoothie.
*MODIFICATIONS: Not feeling like strawberries? You can totally make this smoothie with other fruit if you feel like it! Simple swap the strawberries with the same amount of another fruit (or two). Some ideas:
  • mangoes
  • peaches
  • blueberries
  • mixed berries (I tried this + it was delicious!)
  • apples
  • pears
