Strawberry banana smoothie recipe enriched with superfood antioxidant powder!
I am partnering with FoodScience of Vermont and this is a sponsored post in which all opinions and words are expressed and written by me.
Smoothies make one of the best and healthiest treats at the start of the day and post workout. One of my favorites is a good naturally sweet strawberry banana smoothie recipe! About 7 years ago right before my husband and I got pregnant with our first born we were training with P90X home workouts.
Watch This Short Video Tutorial On How To Make This Strawberry Smoothie:
My husband was getting ready for Tough Mudder and I was getting ready for bathing suit season:-) If you have not heard of Tough Mudder it is an obstacle race about 10-12 miles long. It even includes running through fire and swimming through ice! Super intense, right?!
Every day after my husband got home from work we worked out together in our living room. But what motivated me to complete my hard workout at the end of the day was that we treated ourselves to a Shakeology smoothie that tasted like a milkshake! I thought about that strawberry smoothie shake the entire hour - probably the longest hour of my life...lol!
Tough Mudder ended and my husband rocked at the course! Bathing suit season ended and shortly after we surprisingly found out we were pregnant! I say surprisingly because if you have heard my story before you know I had Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and was told getting pregnant might not happen unless with a specialist. A change of diet to natural foods, nothing processed and gluten-free was part of the success to our natural pregnancy! TMI? Ok I am done with that subject:-)
After our hard-core training workouts ended all I wanted are those milkshake-like delicious smoothies! Let me just say this strawberry banana smoothie recipe is one for the books! It tastes just like it - with natural ingredients!
I am going to be totally raw right now. I apply to do sponsored posts and ONLY apply to ones and products that I adore and that I think will be beneficial to my readers- you! When Foodscience of Vermont and I partnered, I was more than thrilled because I truly love their powder drink mixes!
They offer three different flavors: Superior Greens, Superior Purples and Superior Reds which can be purchased at RiteAid. The greens are powerful for your gut and contain probiotics and superfoods. The purples are the age fighter and contain powerful antioxidants and nutrients for mental clarity. The reds are energy boosting with restorative properties to help you look your best everyday! These products are vegetarian and gluten-free and made with all natural plant based ingredients!
It gets better... this is powerful:
Superior Purples is a healthy aging drink mix that combines 19 whole fruits, vegetables and extracts. Each ½ scoop delivers 3 servings of fruits and vegetables that support healthy radiant skin, cognitive function, immune system response and more. With a delicious berry flavor enhanced by the natural sweetness of stevia and purple carrot, Superior Purples is a great addition to a smoothie recipe, your favorite juice or, dissolves easily in cold water.
Health benefits of superfoods
- Superior Purples is formulated to support smooth, healthy, radiant skin- immune function- cognitive and memory function- immune system function and much more.
- Superior Purples powder drink mix combines 19 nutrient rich whole fruits and vegetables.
- Contains health promoting phytonutrients like: anthocyanins, ellagic acid, phenolics, quercetin and others for total mind and body support.
With two young growing kids at home we can all sure use a daily brain and immunity boosting drink!
The added antioxidant powder gives this strawberry banana smoothie recipe an extra dose of nutrients and delicious sweet flavor! Hubs and I also love to enjoy it mixed with water or juice first thing in the morning. My favorite is that this powder blends well and does not get clumps when I mix it with liquid! I hate those clumps and this powder is so easy to work with!
If you do not like a banana flavor then this is perfect. The combination and ratio of ingredients hides the banana flavor but still provides a creamy naturally sweet taste without dairy or added sugars.

I would love to make this, but it says that the powder is currently unavailable. What can I use instead?
Danielle Fahrenkrug says
Hopefully they get it back, that one is really good. You can also leave it out of the recipe and add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, or a scoop of collagen, strawberry protein powder, or this antioxidant powder.
I love smoothies in the morning. Would love to mix up the ingredients from my usual. thanks!
Would love to give these a try! I love mixing up different flavors!
Love trying new superfood powders in smoothies and getting my daily vitamins in a beautiful liquid form. Pills aggravate me, so I always turn to liquid or sublingual ones 🙂 Of course I love fruit smoothies, but peanut butter banana is my #1
Angela Hendricks says
I would like to try this for my health and my favorite combo is strawberry and peaches!

I've always wanted to try adding a little something extra to my smoothies to boost the nutritional value. It's so overwhelming when I go to the store though. I appreciate the reviews and recommendations. I like a smoothie with mango, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, kale, Greek yogurt and almond milk. Thanks!
Wow this is so relative to my own life right now! With two littles at home and trying to get back into shape, I am finally back to running 5ks regularly and smoothies are definitely one of our favorite snacks! Our go-to is banana, blueberry, spinach, peanut butter, coconut milk, and Chia seed! Yum! The Superfood Purples sounds like the perfect addition to our nutrition plan and I'd love to try it!
I’ve been slow to get on the smoothie kick but I’m finding I like them and I can make them healthy. Love this idea and will seek out this powder-hopefully can find it in my area. Not sure I have a particular favorite smoothie but anything with berries sounds delicious to me.
Thanks so much for such a great giveaway! I'd love to try a container of Superfruit Purples. My favorite smoothie is a berry fruit smoothie.

My favorite smoothie drink is a combo of fruits and spinach, however I also trick myself into my workouts by promising a almond butter and chocolate protein smoothie afterwards! <3 I'm always wanting to try new healthy powders to add to my smoothies!
