It’s got all the feels of delectable strawberry shortcake… in a smoothie format. Utilizing the natural sweetness of frozen strawberries, this creamy concoction is enhanced with thick strawberry-flavored Greek yogurt (any brand will work) and the milk of your choice. Plus, the sprinkling of crushed cinnamon graham crackers gives every sip a nostalgic nod to the classic dessert. Whether you’re looking for a quick and energizing breakfast or a berry-delicious afternoon treat, this velvety smoothie with a touch of indulgence has you covered.


• You can use your favorite strawberry-flavored yogurt or whatever is on sale. I like to use Greek yogurt, since it’s thicker than traditional yogurt and adds extra creaminess. I also use a brand that’s flavored without added sugar, such as Oikos Triple Zero, Oikos Pro, Chobani Zero Sugar, or Two Good. 

• If using plain-unflavored Greek yogurt, you’ll most likely need to add 1 to 2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup to sweeten it up.

• I like to use cinnamon-flavored graham crackers, but plain or chocolate grahams will work well, too.

• I mix the crushed/crumbled graham cracker throughout the smoothie to get some with every gulp—but this may not work if you’re sipping it with a straw (the pieces may get stuck). You can decide!

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 servings
  • • 2 cups frozen “sliced” strawberries (or 2¼ cups of whole frozen strawberries)
  • • 1 single-serve container strawberry Greek yogurt*
  • • 1 cup almond milk (or any other milk of choice)
  • • 1 sheet cinnamon graham cracker (2 squares), crumbled or crushed
  • • Fresh chopped strawberries for garnish.  
  • • Whipped cream, optional 

* This is about ¾ cup or about 5 ounces.


Add frozen strawberries, yogurt, and milk to a blender and puree until super-thick and smooth (should just take about 30 seconds to puree; be careful not to over-blend or it will become too thin). If it’s too thick to puree, stop and loosen up the mixture with a spoon as needed. Pour into two glasses and sprinkle each with a crushed graham cracker square (you can leave on top or mix ‘em throughout the smoothie). Add optional chopped, fresh strawberries and a squirt of aerated whipped topping
