Blueberry smoothies are good for you, and this one also includes the perk of being completely and totally delicious.
It’s bursting with fresh blueberry taste, yes, but what really sets this Greek yogurt blueberry banana smoothie apart is that its flavor is reminiscent of a slice of fresh blueberry pie with a creamy scoop of ice cream. Yum and YUM!
This smoothie is thick, luxurious, and craving-worthy, as any self-respecting pie imitator should be.
It also offers protein and healthy fats, so you can count on it keeping you full all morning.
- Frozen Blueberries. The star of the show!
- Frozen Banana. Banana is good in smoothies because it adds natural sweetness and makes the smoothie thick and creamy. For a blueberry smoothie (no banana), check out Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie.
- Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt. Protein-packed Greek yogurt gives this smoothie the boost it needs to be extra satisfying.
- Rolled Oats. Oats give the smoothie body, make it more filling, and add a subtle “crust” vibe. (For another oat-packed option, check out Oatmeal Smoothie!)
- Almond Butter. Helps make the smoothie more satisfying and gives it rich flavor. If you prefer peanut butter, you can try this as a blueberry banana peanut butter smoothie instead.
- Vanilla + Cinnamon. The key ingredients that take this from being a basic blueberry smoothie to one that tastes like a blueberry pie in a glass.
- Almond Milk. I chose to make this a vanilla almond milk blueberry smoothie, but you can use any milk you have on hand. Making this a blueberry smoothie with milk helps us reach the ideal consistency.
To make this blueberry smoothie vegan, make sure to use a non-dairy milk and non-dairy yogurt. You can also make this a blueberry smoothie without yogurt, but you may want to swap in some extra ice cubes to thicken it up.
- Add all the ingredients to a blender.
- Puree until smooth. ENJOY!
- Protein Powder. For an extra protein boost, add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. I like vanilla here.
- Maple Syrup. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, add a teaspoon or two of pure maple syrup or honey.
- Spinach. Make this into a blueberry banana spinach smoothie by adding a handful of spinach to the blender. Spinach will alter the color of the smoothie a bit, but you won’t be able to taste it.
Make this into a blueberry smoothie bowl by adding a few ice cubes and additional frozen blueberries to make it as thick as possible. Pour it into a bowl and add favorite toppings. Fresh blueberries, banana slices, or granola would be tasty! Grab a spoon and enjoy.
- To Store. Cover and refrigerate leftovers for up to 1 day.
- To Freeze. Freeze smoothies in an airtight freezer-safe storage jar for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
You can also make your smoothie in advance, then pour it into an ice cube try and freeze for up to 3 months. When you are ready to serve, add your desired number of smoothie cubes to a blender and puree.
