This blueberry banana smoothie is loaded with antioxidants and fresh blueberries and bananas. It’s perfect for a hearty breakfast or snack!
This smoothie will jump start your day! I accidentally bought 1 too many cartons of blueberries at at the grocery store (oops)! But it was OK because I got to make this tasty smoothie. I ditched my Jamba Juice runs when I bought my blender and I haven’t been back.
I love being able to use fruits that I bought too many of to make into refreshing and good-for-you smoothies. I love the combo of blueberries and bananas because they just balance each other out, ya know?
If you are one of those people who just isn’t a fan of almond milk, just use regular milk. Since my Dad farms almonds, I have been prone to using almond milk instead of regular milk in almost any smoothie related recipe. Almond milk also has a ton of health benefits so even more of a reason to love it.
I love eating blueberries primarily because I know how beneficial they are to my body. I also love how small and sweet they are! Do you ever buy blueberries that are too sour and bitter to eat? Don’t throw them away! Adding them in this smoothie is perfect. You can just sweeten them up with bananas, yogurt, honey and almond milk. You won’t even be able to tell they were too sour to eat. This is such an easy way to add some extra vitamins and nutrients to your day!
