Why You’ll Love this Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Every sip of this ultra-creamy blueberry and banana smoothie feels like a warm summer day. The combination of wild frozen blueberries, creamy Silk® Vanilla Oatmilkand rich nut butter make it taste like a slice of fresh blueberry pie. Using Silk® Oatmilk is also a good choice for the environment, as they restore water to rivers drop for drop, putting back what is used to grow their oats. 

Not only is this blueberry smoothie packed with antioxidants, but it also offers protein and heart-healthy fats, so you can count on staying fueled all morning.

It’s also made in less than 5 minutes, which is the sort of fuss-free breakfast I need most days. Just toss everything in a blender, sip, and tackle all your morning tasks.

Recipe Ingredients and Substitutions:Recipe ingredients on a serving platter with blue labels

  • Frozen Wild Blueberries: Wild blueberries are frozen at peak freshness, and loaded with 33% more brain-healthy anthocyanins than ordinary blueberries. Their smaller size means twice the berries – and therefore twice the antioxidants – in every sip!
  • Frozen Banana: Banana is good in smoothies because it adds natural sweetness and makes the smoothie thick and creamy. If you dislike bananas, you could substitute another starchy fruit like avocado for creaminess.
  • Spinach: A handful of fresh spinach secretly slips in extra nutrients. (You can’t even taste it!) Smoothies are one of the best ways to front-load your day with nutrient-rich greens. 
  • Silk® Vanilla Oatmilk: The creaminess of this oatmilk makes the smoothie all the more crave-worthy. You can just taste the decadence with every sip, yet feel good about what you’re sipping on first thing in the morning. Plus, this oatmilk has 50% more calcium than dairy milk!
  • Hemp Seeds: These tiny yet mighty seeds are a great source of plant-based protein and omega-3 fatty seeds. Alternatively, you can use chia or flax seeds.
  • Peanut Butter: To give the smoothie more staying power, I always add 1 to 2 tablespoons of nut butter. I love the nutty richness (and protein punch!) of peanut butter, however you can also use almond or cashew butter. 

Optional Add-Ins: This smoothie has some protein from the hemp seed and peanut butter. However, if you want to add protein powder or collagen for after a workout, add 1 scoop of your preferred powder (I suggest vanilla to complement the fruity flavor). Blueberry smoothies on a white board topped with chia seeds and berries

Step-by-Step Instructions:

A lot of people give smoothies a short blend at full power, but that doesn’t give the best results. I suggest starting at low speed and gradually increasing power, which lets the blades more efficiently break down the ingredients.

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high power blender and start blender at lowest setting. Gradually increase to one-third power for 20 seconds, and gradually up to full power. Blend until completely smooth and creamy.

FAQs and Expert Tips:

What Are the Best Things to Put in a Smoothie?

  • Frozen Fruit: The perk of using frozen fruit in a smoothie is that is negates the need for ice. Plus, most fruit is frozen at PEAK freshness, which means peak nutrition. Therefore, you can utilize seasonal fruit like berries year-long, and reap their many benefits. 
  • Nut Butter: Add 1 to 2 Tbsp of peanut, almond, sunflower, or pumpkin seed butter to add richness and satiating fats. 
  • Seeds: Flax, chia, or hemp seeds are a great way to enhance the nutritional value of smoothies. These seeds offer a great source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. 
  • Greens: One of the best ways to slip in extra greens to your diet is to blend them in a smoothie. I love using spinach or kale, which you can’t even taste when combined with fruits and nut butter. 
  • Liquid: Use any kind of plant-based milk for creaminess, or coconut water for electrolytes. 

Storage Tips:

  • To Store: Double the recipe and refrigerate the other portion for up to 1 day.
  • To Freeze: Freeze smoothies in an airtight freezer-safe storage jar for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before drinking.
