Blueberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients
Frozen Blueberries: blueberries are one of my very favorite fruits and they are absolutely delicious in this smoothie.
Frozen Banana: frozen banana helps to give this smoothie the best smooth and creamy texture. Whenever I have ripe bananas I like to peel them, cut them in half, and then add them to a freezer safe bag to freeze for my smoothies.
Greek Yogurt: plain full fat Greek yogurt is always my go-to yogurt of choice in smoothies. It is thick, creamy, and full of protein and healthy fats. You could also use vanilla Greek yogurt if you prefer.
Almond Milk: this is a neutral liquid base that allows the flavor of the fruit to really shine in this smoothie. I like to use an almond milk that is unsweetened. You could also use another non-dairy or dairy milk if you prefer.
Orange Juice: this gives the smoothie a bit of a tangy citrus flavor which works really well. If you do not have orange juice you could leave it out and use extra almond milk instead.
How to Make a Blueberry Banana Smoothie
Step One: Add the almond milk and orange juice to the bottom of a high-powered blender.
Step Two: Next, add the frozen blueberries, frozen banana, and Greek yogurt to the blender.
Step Three: Now, add any additional ingredients you would like to include like nut butter or protein powder.
Step Four: Blend everything for 30 seconds to a minute until the smoothie is completely smooth and creamy. Pour into a class and enjoy!
How to Meal Prep This Smoothie in Advance
Meal prepping your smoothies in advance is a great way to save time in the morning at breakfast time or in the afternoon when you need a quick and filling snack.
To meal prep a few smoothies at a time, just place all of the smoothie ingredients, minus the liquid, into a small freezer safe storage bag. Place the bag in the freezer until you are ready to use.
When you are ready to make a smoothie, add the liquid to your blender and then pour in the contents of your frozen smoothie bag. Blend on high until completely smooth and that’s it!
Can I Make This Without Yogurt?
Yes! If you would like to keep this recipe completely dairy free, feel free to leave out the Greek yogurt. The smoothie will still be delicious.
If you want to keep things dairy free while still including yogurt, you can also use a dairy-free yogurt made from nut-milk.
Ways to Customize
Feel free to get creative and add extra boosts to your smoothie. Below are a few great additions to add to your smoothie:
ground flax seeds
top with granola, nut butter, or more fresh fruit
Tips for the Best Smoothie
Add the liquids first – adding the liquids to your smoothie first will help everything to blend more evenly which will give you a smoother and creamier smoothie texture.
Use frozen fruit – frozen fruit helps to keep the smoothie creamy and cold without ice.
Ditch the ice – speaking of ice, if you are wondering why your smoothies are not more creamy, it may be because you are using ice. Ice waters down the smoothie, changes the consistency from creamy to icy, and doesn’t give you that delicious smoothie texture that everyone loves.
Use ripe fruit – if it’s the summer, when fruit is its best and in season, I highly recommend freezing ripe fresh fruit instead of buying pre-frozen fruit from the freezer section. It will make your smoothie even more flavorful and delicious.
