BLUEBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE RECIPE

School is in full swing around my house and we are slowly falling into our new daily routine.

Do you feel like you have found your groove yet?  

It takes a while to find the right balance in the mornings trying to get the kids out of the door.

Smoothies help fuel my kids and I in the morning or after school as a snack.

I love that you can modify smoothies to what you have on hand too.

We love making this Blueberry Banana Smoothie, a Pineapple Smoothie, a 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie or a Banana Date Smoothie.

Blueberry Banana Smoothies are a really nice way to throw together a nutritious breakfast or snack on those busy days.

You can even prep small smoothie bags ahead of time with all of the ingredients in a medium freezer friendly ziplock bag and add the milk and yogurt when you are ready to make the smoothie.

We should talk for a minute about today’s Blueberry Banana Smoothie Recipe.

It is filled with antioxidants, calcium, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins.

You guys loved my Blueberry Kale Smoothie so I knew I had to create another version.

If you are looking for a delicious smoothie to add to the morning mix or to refuel you in the afternoon, this is the one for you!

I have always like the combination of blueberries and pomegranate seeds together.

The blueberries compliment the pomegranate flavor nicely and the banana and honey of course add sweetness as well.

When I make smoothies I try to use a milk and a yogurt, particularly Greek yogurt, to help me get a boost of protein and calcium.

I usually use 2% milk but you can use any milk or dairy substitute.

I like to call today’s smoothie a super-smoothie, since it is packed with a few superfoods.

Lets take a quick look at some of the healthy ingredients in this Blueberry Banana Smoothie Recipe:

  • MILK: When I make smoothies I use whatever milk I have on hand, which is ally 2%. You can also use any dairy substitute you like. I find oat or almond milk to be a nice option.

  • YOGURT: I love using Greek yogurt in smoothies because it adds protein and a tangy flavor. It is also thicker than regular yogurt so it helps the texture of the smoothie. You can use regular yogurt or a flavored yogurt too.

  • FRUIT: Today’s smoothie uses banana, blueberries and pomegranate seeds. If you can’t get ahold of pomegranate seeds you can skip that. I like to add them for the extra antioxidants.

  • SPINACH: The spinach adds iron and a dose of leafy greens to your day as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. You can sub in kale if you like or skip the greens.

  • HONEY: Honey helps sweeten the smoothie but isn’t something you have to have. With the fruit in the smoothie you will find the it is already pretty sweet. 

  • CHIA SEEDS: Chia seeds are optional but add antioxidants, protein and fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

OTHER OPTIONS TO ADD TO SMOOTHIES:

HEMP SEEDS: Do you use hemp seeds? They are great in smoothies and they are packed with so much power. 1 Tablespoon of those small seeds is 5 grams of protein.

That will help keep you feeling full and give you the energy you need. I suggest adding it to your smoothies if you have it on hand!

NUT BUTTER: Nut butters are another great way to add protein and help the texture of the smoothie. I find if my smoothie is too thin that adding a few Tablespoons or almond of peanut butter will help thicken it. 

SPIRULINA: Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water. One Tablespoon of spirulina  of dried spirulina powder contains protein, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B3, copper and iron. This is another powerhouse ingredient you can add.

OATS: You might be thinking – oats? And yes, they are a great addition to smoothies. They will thicken it some but I actually like it. You can dump rolled oats straight into the blender. They help keep you full and give you energy thanks to the fiber!

PROTEIN POWDER: If you are looking to up your protein in-take, for example after workouts, try protein powder. There are a lot of varieties in the stores now and some are even flavored.
