A healthy blueberry banana smoothie takes simple and healthy ingredients and combines them into one easy and delicious drink. And the beautiful dark blue-purple color is to due for gorgeous!
This smoothie only takes a few ingredients, all of which are easy to keep on hand! I simply combine frozen bananas, frozen blueberries, vanilla yogurt, lemon juice and milk in a blender and blend it until it is rich, creamy and deliciously refreshing!
Yes, you can make a blueberry smoothie without yogurt, but I find that the yogurt gives a rich creaminess to the smoothie that you just can’t get any other way. If you are trying to avoid dairy, opt for a coconut yogurt! You won’t be able to tell the difference!
Yes, you can make a healthy smoothie without ice, but I recommend using only frozen fruit if you don’t plan to use ice. You need something cold and frozen to get that cold temperature and thicker consistency we love so much in our smoothies!
Yes, you can make a smoothie without milk. You can use juice or water instead, but you will lose a lot of the creamy texture that we all love in smoothies. If you are looking for a dairy-free substitute, I would use coconut milk, almond milk or soy milk instead! That will give you a similar consistency without the dairy.
That really depends on the ingredients in your smoothie, but yes, they can be very good for you! This recipe is full of fruits, yogurt and milk. The blueberries in this blueberry smoothie gives you a great dose of antioxidants.
Eating blueberries every day is super healthy for you! Blueberries contain antioxidants that can naturally help our body’s fend off things like illness and disease. Eating blueberries regularly can help reduce your risk of heart attack and heart disease, they can help keep blood pressure low, they can improve your cardiovascular health, they can help reduce oxidative stress, inflammation and so much more!* So yes! Go ahead and eat blueberries every single day! Your whole body will thank you!
There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best. I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies! You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE.
Alright, are you ready to get going? This smoothie will blend together in just a few minutes and I love that I almost always have these ingredients on hand to make it.
This blueberry banana smoothie makes the perfect after-school snack or a delicious quick breakfast. Yummy!
Notes: If you use a frozen banana and frozen blueberries as I recommend, you will probably not need to add ice. But if you opt for fresh fruit, you will want to add ice to your smoothie. I recommend adding a handful of ice at a time until it is the desired temperature and consistency.
Isn’t this just the most beautiful smoothie you’ve ever seen?? Hint: it tastes as good as it looks! Yum!
