BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE RECIPE

Here’s what you’ll need to make this healthy breakfast smoothie:

HOW TO MAKE A BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE

You don’t need an expensive blender to make this vegan fruit smoothie.  A NutriBullet or inexpensive blender will do the trick.

  1. Place all ingredients into blender or a NutriBullit and blend until smooth.
  2. Add a little more water if smoothie is too thick, or add more frozen banana if you want a thicker smoothie.

I like to add frozen bananas instead of fresh because frozen bananas give my smoothies a creamier texture.  I also keep frozen cranberries on hand, because sometimes I’ll substitute cranberries in lieu of the blueberries for this smoothie.  As for the almond butter, it adds a nice flavor along with protein.  If you like to add almond milk to your smoothies but don’t have any almond milk on hand – you can always add some almond butter with water.  It’ll do the trick.
