And yes, I have given up dairy. A while back actually, but I had this recipe in my archives of draft posts and thought I’d bring it out into the daylight before it rusts.

Mini Chef loves this smoothie. Blueberries are definitely a favorite around here, so it only makes sense to make a smoothie, don’t you think?

BLUEBERRY NUTRITION

One cup of fresh blueberries has just 85 calories, 3.6 grams of fiber and 21 healthy carbs. They are low on the glycemic index, meaning they don’t affect your blood sugar negatively, despite the number of carbs. Blueberries also contain a healthy dose of vitamin C. Once cup gives you 24% of your daily, recommended C intake!

HOW TO MAKE A BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE

Smoothies are one of the fastest, easiest and most nutritious (if you make them right) breakfasts you can make. And the bonus is that they travel really well! Making them couldn’t be simpler. Just place all your healthy ingredients in a blender with some liquid and blend until smooth!

LIQUIDS FOR SMOOTHIES

There are many types of liquids you can put in a smoothie. The most common is water. But while water adds no fat or calories, it also adds zero flavor. So if you want more flavor in your smoothie, here are some ideas for other types of liquids you can add.

  • Almond milk
  • Coconut milk
  • Unsweetened juice
  • Cashew milk
  • Oat milk
  • Dairy-based milk

HOW TO MAKE A SMOOTHIE CREAMY

Creamy smoothies are decadent. Creating that texture isn’t difficult. It comes down to one or two ingredient additions. The most common is plain yogurt. But you can also use cream (if you don’t mind the calories/fat), Greek yogurt (the most popular option) or whole fat milk. This recipe uses two of these! Yum!
