This creamy blueberry smoothie is packed full of fruity flavors and amazing nutritional benefits. Full of antioxidants, you can customize my frozen blueberry smoothie however you want and have it as breakfast or snack.
Prep your ingredients. Adapt the measurements based on how you like your smoothies - if you want more blueberry, add more.
Add the ingredients to the blender. Start with the milk. Chop up your banana, then add that to the blender. Then, add the yogurt, nut butter, and vanilla (if using).
Pour in the blueberries. Then blend to your desired consistency.
Serve in a tall glass, either with a spoon (if you prefer it thick) or a straw (if you like it thinner). Top with your desired toppings – optional - a scoop of nut butter, coconut chips, almonds, or fresh blueberries.
How to Make Ahead and Store?
How to make ahead and store: If you're making ahead, blend the smoothie as instructed and pour it into individual containers or freezer bags. Make sure it's sealed tight. Then it's best to freeze them. Freeze: Smoothies can last in the freezer for up to three months, so it's great to make ahead and enjoy when you want. Simply defrost them in the fridge the night before or chuck them straight in the blender with a splash of liquid. Keep in mind that your smoothie can get watered down as the ice melts.
Optional toppings: Nut butter drizzle, fresh blueberries, white coconut chips, almonds.Optional Add-ins and Variations:
Replace the yogurt: If you want to make the smoothie without the yogurt, use a frozen banana instead of a fresh one. You’ll still get the creamy consistency without watering it down.
Aromatics: add a pinch of cardamom, cinnamon, or even basil.
Citrus juice: Add a squeeze of lemon juice to lift the flavor and brighten the smoothie.
Oatmeal: Not only are oats amazingly healthy, but they'll also keep you fuller for longer. Add 2-3tbsps of oat flour or blend your rolled oats until they look like a powder, then add before the other ingredients.
Veggies: Kale, spinach, and even frozen peas all compliment blueberry and are a great way to sneak healthy greens into a fruity smoothie.
