How To Make Blueberry Smoothies
These blueberry smoothies are very easy to make and will actually keep you happy for hours because they provide almost 10 grams of protein and fibre per slice. Whip them for coffee, or you want ice cream every time — it’s all right.
Basic Blueberry Smoothie
- 1 ½ cups to 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk or water.
- 1 ½ cups frozen blueberries.
- 1 ½ cup frozen bananas (I freeze my bananas in ½″ slices).
- ¼ cup almond butter.
- Optional nutrition boosters: ¼ cup old-fashioned oats and/or 2 tablespoons flaxseed.
- 1 to 2 teaspoons maple syrup, if necessary (I usually don’t need it).
Bring the components together in a mixer.
- Blend low until you get momentum on your blender, then ramp up to the fastest possible pace (or if your blender has a smoothie feature, it will work fine). Avoid scraping the sides or adding additional milk if necessary.
- When the smoothie is completely moist, try it and blend it with the maple syrup if you want a sweeter smoothie. Divide into 2 cups the smoothie.
Banana Blueberry Smoothie
These blueberry smoothies are very easy and will hold you happy for hours because they provide about 10 grams of protein and fibre per portion. Throw them for coffee, or you want ice cream every time — it’s so sweet.
- Tons of antioxidants and a beautiful dark blue hue come from frozen blueberries. For optimum nutrients purchase wild/organic blueberries.
- This rich smoothie, natural sugar, is made of frozen bananas. No bananas, this smoothie is nothing!
- Almond butter provides extra creaminess and energy, calcium and monounsaturated fat for healthier hearts.
- Vanilla amber milk renders it as fluffy as possible for this smoothie. To avoid refined sugar, buy non-sweetened. Milk and Cilicia Farms are my main products. Or use mud, a comfortable feel for a little less.
