Recipe Ingredients

Here’s an overview of the ingredients you’ll need to make this smoothie.
See the recipe card at the bottom of this post for all of the ingredient details.

  • FROZEN BANANA – This is the base ingredient for the smoothie. It adds sweetness and creaminess to the smoothie. Ripe bananas with a few brown spots will have the most sweetness. Some people prefer to use green bananas for less sugar content.
  • To get that perfect creamy smoothie, you’ll want to slice a banana into smaller pieces and freeze them overnight. This will create the best smoothie texture! But if you don’t have frozen ripe bananas, you can use fresh bananas and add some ice cubes to the blender.
  • FRESH OR FROZEN BLUEBERRIES – Personally I prefer to use frozen blueberries as they’re usually cheaper and also give a better texture. Fresh blueberries will also work but not as well.
  • PLAIN GREEK YOGURT – Greek yogurt adds creaminess. To take it up a notch, consider freezing the yogurt in an ice cube tray overnight. This will create a thicker smoothie that you’re going to love. Regular yogurt or a plant-based yogurt will also work for this hack.
  • MILK – Any milk works here. You can use cow’s milk or non-dairy milk like almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, or any other milk of your choice.

How to Make Blueberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

Making this blueberry smoothie recipe couldn’t be easier, just follow the simple steps below:

  1. ADD INGREDIENTS – Add all your ingredients into a blender starting with the frozen fruit. We like to break up the banana so it blends easier.
  2. BLEND – Blend all the ingredients together until a smooth and creamy texture is achieved. If the consistency is too thick, you can add more liquid to thin it out.
  3. SERVE – Serve immediately while it’s nice and cold.

Variations

Experiment with different combinations to find your favorite variation of this refreshing smoothie.
Here are a few ingredients to try incorporating.

  • NUT BUTTER – Add 1 Tbsp of almond butter, peanut butter, or sunflower seed butter for extra energy.
  • SWEETENER – Some people like to have their smoothie a bit sweeter. Pure maple syrup is a great ingredient for this!
  • CHIA SEEDS – A little bit of chia seeds can help to thicken up the smoothie. But keep it minimal – a little goes a long way! This is totally optional and you don’t have to use them.
  • ADD HEMP SEEDS – Hemp seeds are a great source of protein and healthy fats. Sprinkle a tablespoon of hemp seeds on top of your smoothie for a crunchy texture.
  • PROTEIN POWDER- Personally I prefer to add protein powder to my smoothies. If you decide to do the same, you can use unflavored or vanilla to compliment the recipe.
  • VANILLA – A scoop of vanilla protein powder or vanilla extract for added flavor.

How To Store Leftovers

Smoothies are best served fresh however they can be stored for later easily with these tips:

  • REFRIGERATE – If there are some leftovers you want to save, your smoothie should be refrigerated as soon as possible. Store it in an airtight container like a large mason jar.
  • FREEZE IT – If you want to store your smoothie for longer, consider freezing it. Pour your smoothie into a freezer-safe container (like a mason jar), leaving some room at the top for expansion.
  • TO THAW – These can be frozen for up to 6 months. Thaw it in the fridge overnight and give it a shake before serving. You can also pop it back in the blender once it’s thawed enough to do so.

Recipe Tips

Here are some tips so you can elevate this smoothie to its highest level.

  • FREEZE YOUR BANANAS – To get that perfect creamy smoothie, you’ll want to slice a banana into smaller pieces and freeze them overnight. This will create the best smoothie texture! But if you don’t have frozen ripe bananas, you can use fresh bananas and add some ice cubes to the blender.
  • FREEZE YOUR YOGURT – To take it up a notch, consider freezing the yogurt in an ice cube tray overnight. This will create a thicker smoothie with more texture that you’re going to love.
  • PROTEIN OVERLOAD – One mistake I’ve learned through trial and error is not to add too much protein. This can ruin a smoothie with just one too many scoops of that protein powder, nut butter or especially chia seeds. My husband requires extra protein but doesn’t like to drink sludge so he’ll add seeds, nuts or a spoonfull of seedbutter on top.
  • DRINK IT RIGHT AWAY – Smoothies tend to lose their magic as they cool off so plan to drink it immediately. An insulated stainless stell mug is a great way to keep your smoothie cold.
  • ADD HEMP SEEDS – Hemp seeds are a great source of protein and healthy fats. Sprinkle a tablespoon of hemp seeds on top of your smoothie for a crunchy texture.
  • ADD FRESH FRUIT – blueberries or sliced bananas on top of your smoothie for
    added flavor and texture.
