Blueberry Smoothie

Friends, this recipe for a blueberry smoothie has me looking forward to breakfast for the next few days. This past weekend, we were fortunate enough to have a few sunny days in Chicago, and the (slightly) warmer weather induced a need in me for anything light and fresh. Rather than having my typical morning toast on Saturday, I decided to make a blueberry smoothie instead. On Sunday, I repeated the process.




Moreover, on Monday. I am not going to look back now that it is Tuesday. The thick, frosty texture of this blueberry smoothie, combined with its sweet berry flavor, gives it the flavor of a morning ice cream treat. However, this smoothie is packed with a variety of nutritional components. In addition to being easy to prepare in the blender, it does a good job of keeping me full until lunchtime. The likelihood of this song being played again in the near future is low.

Blueberry Smoothie Recipe Ingredients:

Blueberries, of course! Use frozen berries to make this smoothie thick and icy.
Frozen raspberries – The more berries, the better, right? The raspberries provide a pleasant acidity to this blueberry smoothie.
Frozen cauliflower – believe me, you will not taste it! It adds nutrients to the smoothie and helps it achieve a creamy texture.
Frozen banana – The banana, like the cauliflower, makes this smoothie extremely creamy.
Almond milk can be purchased in stores or made at home! If you don’t have almond milk on hand, feel free to use your preferred dairy or non-dairy milk. Water also works!

Almond butter provides protein and healthy lipids.
Maple syrup adds sweetness.
Fresh lemon juice – Its sharp flavor complements the sweetness of the fruit and maple.
Fresh ginger is optional, but excellent. Blend it into the smoothie to add a refreshing kick.

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth! If the smoothie is too thick to combine, add additional almond milk until you get the required consistency.

Blueberry Smoothie Recipe Variations
If you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty obsessed with this blueberry smoothie recipe, exactly as written. But, like any smoothie, it’s adaptable! If you don’t have these exact ingredients on hand, substitute something similar or adjust the recipe to your preferences. Here are some ideas to help you get started:

Go green. Blend in a handful of spinach or kale.
Skip the raspberries. Make a simple blueberry banana smoothie by using an entire frozen banana rather than half of one.
Substitute the nut butter. Replace almond butter with peanut or cashew butter.
Make it heartier. Add a spoonful of Greek yogurt or whole rolled oats. A spoonful of hemp or chia seeds might make an excellent addition too.

Blueberry Smoothie Serving Suggestions
This blueberry smoothie is such a fantastic healthy breakfast or snack! Enjoy a tall, chilled glass on its own, or add toppings like sliced almonds, fresh blueberries, chia seeds, and/or coconut flakes and scoop it up with a spoon.

Hungry for more? This smoothie combines wonderfully with all sorts of morning dishes. For a quick weekday breakfast, combine it with a slice of avocado toast or any of these healthy muffin recipes. On the weekend, whip it up as a beverage for a laid-back breakfast. It’s excellent with a frittata, scrambled eggs, waffles, French toast, or a huge stack of pancakes.
