I have been trying to save money by recreating some of my favorite fast foods. So far, I have made copycat recipes for Starbucks Blueberry Scones, Starbucks Cake Pops, and Starbucks Mango Dragonfruit Refresher.

Now, I am on to my favorite smoothie, the Angel Food Smoothie by Smoothie King. This smoothie is perfect year-round, but especially on a hot summer day.

What I Love About This Recipe

  • Super simple recipe
  • It tastes great with fresh or fresh fruit
  • All-natural sugars with no artificial flavors

The current cost of a small Angel Food Smoothie King Smoothie is $5.39 before taxes (yikes!) You can make this copycat angel food smoothie for a fraction of the cost. Here is the breakdown.

  • Banana $.27
  • Frozen Strawberries $2.00 (Private Selection 16oz bag – $3.99)

Ingredients

This simple smoothie combines the flavors of bananas and strawberries. Add milk for a rich texture and flavor and sugar for sweetness, and you will have an Angel Food Smoothie!

  • Natural Fruits – Use a combination of strawberries and bananas. You can use fresh fruits, frozen fruits, or any combination.
  • Sugar – Smoothie King uses turbinado sugar, also known as sugar in the raw. But if you do not have turbainado sugar, no worries, you can make this recipe with standard white sugar.
  • Milk – Use your preferred milk or non-dairy milk with this recipe. I like to use oat milk.
  • Ice Cubes – You need a few ice cubes to give this a smoothie texture!

Additions and Alternatives

Nut Butter – Almost any nut butter is the perfect addition to an angel food smoothie. Popular nut butters include peanut butter, almond butter, and macadamia nut butter.

Simple Syrup – Don’t have raw sugar on hand? No problem. You can easily whip up your simple syrup. Just combine equal parts white sugar and water in a small pot, heat until the sugar dissolves, and let it cool. It’s that simple! 

Protein Powder – Feel free to add your favorite protein powder to this smoothie. Depending on the powder, the smoothie will be less sweet, which might also be your preference. This addition is a win-win!

Blenders

To achieve the smoothest smoothie, you must have a strong blender to break down the ice. 

  • Household Blender – Traditional household blenders are convenient and affordable. Blending time varies by the blender’s wattage. I recommend taking breaks so the motor does not burn out. Also, start at a lower speed and work up to a higher speed. This prevents the ingredients from going directly to the sides of the blender.
  • High-Performance Blender – A Vitamix or a Ninja is an example of a high-performance blender. Although they can be expensive, if you make a lot of smoothies, they can be worth the investment.
  • Food Processor – Food processors will leave the smoothie a bit chunky. If you are in a pinch, this can be a good solution. Scrape down the sides as needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Notes

Smoothie King turbinado, also known as sugar in the raw, in their recipe.  You can also make this recipe with simple syrup or standard white sugar.  Of the two, I recommend simple syrup.  It blends better with the smoothie ingredients. To make simple syrup, mix equal parts of sugar and water in a small saucepan. Heat over low to medium heat until the sugar dissolves completely. Allow it to cool before adding it to the smoothie.
