I have always loved cool, creamy treats like smoothies, ice cream and shakes. Being pregnant during the summer makes me crave these cold eats even more! During both of my pregnancies, I have loved all things citrus so I thought I would take my craving for sweet citrus fruit and blend it into a deliciously tart-sweet Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie.

Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie Tips

  • I used frozen strawberries from the store to make this smoothie, but you can easily freeze your own by cleaning and hulling strawberries. Then place them in a flat layer on a wax paper or parchment lined sheet pan over night. Transfer the frozen strawberries to an airtight container and use in this smoothie recipe.
  • Raspberries would also taste delicious in this recipe.Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie -
  • This recipe calls for plain, nonfat Greek yogurt because that is what we enjoy in my family, but you can use a higher fat percentage of yogurt or a plant-based Greek yogurt in the same proportions.
  • The recipe has optional maple syrup, but I think the sweetness of the lemonade and strawberries is plenty in this recipe.
  • You can easily use a homemade lemonade recipe if you want to make your own instead of using store-bought.

Strawberry Lemonade Nutrition

  • Strawberries: High in vitamin C (an antioxidant necessary for our immune system and skin), fiber (that aids in digestive health), folate (important for tissue growth and function and especially important for pregnant people), manganese and potassium.
  • Greek yogurt: Good source of protein (necessary for muscle, bone, cartilage, skin, hair, blood), probiotics (healthy bacteria that aids in digestive health), and calcium (bone and muscle health).

Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie


  • 1 ½ cups lemonade
  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup (optional)


Blend lemonade, Greek yogurt and strawberries until smooth and creamy. Serve in a glass with a straw and enjoy!
