Key takeaways

  • Blueberry smoothie recipes, including variations with banana, protein powder, apple, raspberries, strawberries, and yogurt.
  • Whole fruits are generally recommended over smoothies due to their fiber content, but smoothies can still be a refreshing and nutritious option.

A great choice for those who have a hard time having breakfast! We have recipes for a light meal full of antioxidants

A blueberry smoothie is a refreshing semi-liquid drink, and it is most often a combination of blueberry and milk. Any smoothie is a good way to consume fruits and vegetables for those who do not eat enough or do not like these particular food groups.

On the other hand, although a smoothie seems like a light meal, depending on the ingredients, it easily turns into a calorie bomb. This is especially the case when adding nut butter and the nuts and seeds themselves.

Also, the fruits and vegetables that are added to the smoothie are devoid of fiber, so whole fruits are always recommended compared to chopped ones. However, if you like smoothies, this is not a reason to avoid it, especially on warmer days when we want something refreshing and yet nutritionally high-quality.

Smoothies provide less satiety than whole foods because the blender acts as an external stomach that has already broken down the food It’s a good choice for those who struggle with breakfast but still get hungry before lunch. Smoothies are a compromise between skipping meals and following proper dietary guidelines

That’s why we’re sharing a few blueberry smoothie recipes that are rich in antioxidants and very nutritious fruits.

Blueberry and banana smoothie

If you want the texture of ice cream, use frozen fruit, especially frozen banana. The addition of peanut butter will fill you up and give you the necessary fat. Here is a recipe for a banana-blueberry smoothie.

  • half a cup of blueberries
  • 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein

  • 1 teaspoon of chia seeds.

Blueberry and apple smoothie

We suggest blending some of the fruit in a smoothie blender and leaving the rest in its full form to incorporate fiber. Namely, thanks to the peel, the apple contains valuable fiber for the good functioning of the digestive system.

Strawberry and blueberry smoothie

I believe that if we could choose a combination of fruits, this one would be one of my favorites. Blueberries and strawberries go so well together that they deserve their own recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • half a cup of strawberries
  • a few whole strawberries
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 cup of plant-based vanilla drink
  • 1 banana.

Preparation

In a blender, blend blueberries, strawberries, bananas, and vegetable drink. Cut whole strawberries and kiwi into slices. “Glue” the strawberry and kiwi slices to the inner walls of the glass cups. Pour the smoothie into glasses.

Blueberries and yogurt

Yogurt is good for our gut bacteria, but this is plain, not fruit yogurt. So you’d better buy plain yogurt and add fruits like blueberries to it. If you want a blueberry protein smoothie, get real Greek yogurt in specialty stores. Namely, the Greek type of yogurt is available in our stores, which contains less protein, that is, the same protein as regular yogurt, but usually more calories due to its higher fat content.

  • half a cup of real Greek yogurt (or plain yogurt)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • half a banana
  • 1 teaspoon of almonds (chopped).

Preparation

Put all the ingredients, except chopped almonds, in a blender and blend. Sprinkle with chopped almonds.
