Smoothie Basics: Blueberry

     Smoothies are great. And healthy. So here's my favorite most basic, simple blueberry smoothie recipe. You can easily take this basic formula and run with it, try different berries, add-ins like spinach or flax seed.. etc.


Simple Blueberry Smoothie

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • a little less than 1 cup of almond milk (I don't usually measure this, just add more as needed to achieve desired texture)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
I like to blend the berries and milk first to get those nice and pureed. Then add in the Greek yogurt, honey and a little more almond milk to get the perfect consistency. This smoothie is sweet with the honey and creamy with the Greek yogurt, not to mention filled with antioxidants from the blueberries. I like smoothies for breakfast or for a mid afternoon boost before yoga or other physical activity. Also if you're counting calories, this specific smoothie recipe is about 270 calories (give or take a few depending on how much almond milk you use).
