This clean eating blueberry bananas smoothie is a delicious, nutritious start to your morning!

Around here, we refer to smoothies as “Smoodies”. Mini Chef started the trend, and now we just cannot seem to call them anything else.

This “smoodie” is very nutrient dense. It will fill you up and give you plenty of energy to get to your next meal. It’s not overly sweet, but it’s good. I think you’ll find it tasty, even if you are still accustomed to having sugar in your diet. Worst case scenario, you can put in an extra banana and just drink a little less of the “smoodie”.

A close up shot of this Clean Eating Blueberry Banana Smoothie shows a vibrant, blueberry blue in a clear glass mug.

But if you absolutely must have a sweeter smoothie, a little honey will usually do the job just fine. You just want to watch the sugar content because it can really add up fast in any smoothie you make.

HINT:

The recipe doesn’t call for it, but if you really need to stay full, you can add a quarter cup of uncooked, traditional oats to the blender. They will expand in your tummy and keep you super full!

  1. Hi Tiffany! I’m noticing that you are using a lot of tofu and soy milk in these recipes, and I was wondering what a good substitute would be. I’m very allergic to soy, so, needless to say, even a delicious smoothie is not worth anaphylaxis! Any ideas? Thanks!

      Court – Sure! You can try 1/2 cup quinoa, greek yogurt or cottage cheese. The best bet for flavor would be the cottage cheese. Enjoy!

      1. I have the same issue. I’d opt for greek yogurt. I have a new affinity for this stuff and I mix mine with a little raw honey.

  2. Can you substitute almond milk unsweetened

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tanya – You can, just be aware that the protein content will go down and the carb content will go up. But if that doesn’t bother you, it should work just fine!

  3. Could I make this with fresh blueberries?

      Gmoskash – Yes, it might just be a little thinner in texture. But just as good!

  4. Elizabeth Cansino says:

    What if I cant find tofu or dont like it? Is there anything I can substitute?

      Elizabeth – You can try a clean protein powder. 100% whey powder or a clean hemp powder usually work well. Or, just make your smoothie and have a couple hard boiled egg whites on the side as part of your snack.

    Laurie – That’s wonderful!! Try the apple smoothie. It’s my fav. I bet she’ll love it! Mini Chef certainly does!

  6. I make this but also include extra virgin coconut oil and chia seeds. Love this. My husband made a smoothie yesterday and used frozen peas because we were out of spinich. I absolutely hate peas and it was delicious.
