Need a quick, healthy breakfast or snack packed full of fruit that the whole family will love? You'll get three cheers from your family when you break out the blender for the easy and delicious best blueberry smoothie! And if apples are more your jam, try my Apple Pie Smoothie too!
Mornings can be super hectic on any given day, and breakfast choices can be tough. Sugary-sweet cereals and breakfast pastries are quick, but they're loaded with sugar and usually artificial colors. This best blueberry smoothie is the perfect way to get the day started with fresh fruit, a bit of hidden spinach, no refined sugars, and a probiotic boost of kefir! This fruit smoothie is brain food at its best. (For the perfect winter smoothie, mix it up with my Pineapple Cranberry Smoothie.)
As an avid gardener, I love to use fresh produce from my garden and the grocery store to create smoothies.
Since my family isn't too interested in the green smoothies at this point, I lean toward smoothies loaded with fresh (or frozen) berries, like my Greek Yogurt Strawberry Smoothie. Berries are naturally low in sugar, and they are chock full of antioxidants.
- Fresh or frozen blueberries
- Plain Kefir (or Greek Yogurt)
- Milk (your favorite type)
- Honey (optional)
- First, wash spinach and blueberries (especially if you froze them before they were washed.)
- After that, add blueberries, spinach, and banana to blender. Follow with milk, kefir (or yogurt, if using), lemon juice, and honey.
- Blend until all ingredients are smooth.
- Finally, pour smoothie into a glass, add a straw, and enjoy!
- Use vanilla yogurt instead of plain greek yogurt or kefir. (Omit the honey if you do this, since vanilla yogurt is sweetened.)
- Add in a tablespoon of chia seeds for a nutritional boost.
- For a vegan and dairy-free option, use almond/cashew milk and coconut milk yogurt.
- Swap out the blueberries for your favorite type of berry or whatever you have in the freezer
