Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

I picked a small handful of blueberries off an early blooming bush the other day.

All year we have enjoyed blueberries in the form of smoothies (due to having a nice supply in the freezer). I thought I’d pass along our recipe for blueberry smoothie.

Fresh blueberry smoothies:

  • 2-4 fresh bananas
  • 1-2 cups frozen blueberries
  • some fresh or frozen strawberries (if you have them)
  • a pinch of stevia
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 Tblsp milled flax
  • 1 Tblsp wheat germ
  • 2 Tblsp rice protein
  • Orange juice or soy milk if needed

Blend all until smooth and enjoy.

I have added sprouts and any other fruit that might blend well, like blackberries.  You may also be able to sneak in a few greens like kale or spinach when you are feeling really adventurous.

Blueberry Smoothie Recipe - FAQs

Strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, mango, banana, lemon, limes, coconut, cherries, lychees, fig, celery, peach, avocados, orange, kiwi, nectarine, pear, and pineapple are other fruit pairings that go well with it.

Blueberries and their aromatic pairings

The spicy vanilla notes in blueberries also stand up to bold-flavored ingredients such as coffee, chocolate and toasted bread, while their floral rose-like scents pair beautifully with lychee, apple, raspberry, tomato and beets.

Packed with antioxidants, they pack a lot of nutrients into a small, low-calorie package. You get a generous dose of fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and manganese in every one cup serving of blueberries. Sure, you could just snack on a bowl of blueberries.

According to a few studies, a bowl of blueberries can help in boosting immunity and can reduce the risk of diabetes, obesity and heart diseases. Moreover, consuming a small portion of berries daily can help in strengthening the metabolism and prevent any kind of metabolic syndrome and deficiency.

The smooth, creamy combination of milk, blueberries, maple syrup and vanilla offer delicious motivation to get your serving of dairy – or just add a little variety to your glass. To really mix it up, try adding Blueberry Milk to your cereal, smoothie or even a creamy cocktail.

Another study found that eating blueberries with milk reduced the absorption of their polyphenols and blocked their antioxidant effects ( 13 ). Similarly, the antioxidant capacity of different types of coffee was shown to decrease with the addition of milk.

Blueberries are not commonly consumed with milk, except perhaps when they are eaten together with cereal. And there is no compelling evidence that the antioxidant content of plasma is a determinant of health.

As long as you are drinking smoothies made from a variety of fruits and vegetables and low in refined sugar, there would be no problem with consuming smoothies every day. However, fruits are naturally high in sugar and you want to make sure you are consuming an overall balanced diet to maintain optimum health.
