Description

Creamy, refreshing and deliciously healthy, this blueberry banana smoothie makes the perfect breakfast or mid-day snack.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I used Stonyfield Grass Fed Whole Milk Plain Yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons ground flax seeds or flax meal
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch cardamom (optional, and just use a pinch--a little goes a long way)
  • 1 cup ice (or less if you don’t want an icy cold smoothie)

Instructions

  1. Prep: Freeze blueberries and bananas for at least 1-2 hours, or overnight. I like to slice the banana into 1-inch chunks before I freeze for easier blending.

  2. Blend: Add all ingredients except ice to high speed blender and blend for about a minute, slowly increasing speed to high (see notes).

  3. Ice: Add ice and blend for another 30 seconds.

  4. Enjoy: Pour into two medium glasses and enjoy immediately.


Notes

A high speed blender such as a Vitamix works best for this recipe to create a smooth texture, but a regular blender will still do the job just fine.
