It was originally going to be a Green Smoothie, but I had a craving for blueberries when it was time to make it.
It’s okay! I’m becoming better at listening to my body. When it asks for berries, I’ll give it berries.
This smoothie is made with six simple ingredients and a blender. It takes 5 minutes to complete.
This base is made of frozen organic blueberries and frozen wild bananas (a favorite winter treat). Almond butter adds plant-based protein, creaminess, and a creamy texture. Finally, almond milk blends it all. I added flax, chia seeds, and omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acid-rich omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids to the mix.
This smoothie is not only healthy but also delicious. This is my favorite. It’s a cross between a Banana smoothie and a blueberry-based milkshake. You’ll want to try this smoothie.
It would be a great quick snack or breakfast for the weekday. It’s even a suitable dessert! For a swirl effect, I like to add a bit of coconut milk into my glass before adding the smoothie. It makes mealtimes more beautiful and fun.
- The original recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of frozen banana ripe pieces (1 1/2 bananas).
- Half a cup of frozen blueberries, wild or organic, if possible
- 1 Tbsp Almond butter (or sunflower seed or peanut butter)
- Unsweetened plain almond Milk 3/4 cup
- 1 tbsp of flaxseed meals
- 1 Tbsp chia seed
- For recommendations, see my Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder Review.
- Blend on high speed until smooth and creamy. Add the frozen bananas, blueberries, and flaxseed, then blend with almond butter. It is optional to add protein powder. I did not, but it could be a good addition if you want more staying power. For more information, please see my Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder Review.
- Add more almond milk if it is difficult to blend. Then taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more banana (or a bit of stevia) for sweetness, blueberries for fruitiness, almond butter for nuttiness/creaminess, or almond milk to thin.
- Pour a little light coconut or almond milk into your glass(es), then pour the smoothie on top. This will create a swirling effect. Coconut milk makes the swirl better, as it is thicker. Both work.
- Enjoy! Keep leftovers in the fridge for up to two days. They are best when they are fresh.
