“Pleasantly plump” isn’t typically considered a compliment, unless one is referring to a blueberry, in which case, give me all the fatties in the land, then let me blend them into a dreamy Blueberry Pie Smoothie!

Has anyone else been on a big ol’ blueberry binge? I can’t seem to stop myself from tossing a carton of these cuties into my cart every time I enter the grocery store. Some meet a respectable end—a topping for my cereal; mixed into Red, White, and Blue Quinoa Fruit Salad—but half of the time, I end up loading them into my mouth like an industrious chipmunk stuffing her cheeks. We run a very classy, well-mannered household.

About This Creamy Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie

In addition to the blueberries in my fridge, I’ve also started keeping an economy-sized bag in the freezer for my smoothie needs. (Someone please stop me if I hint at a blueberry tattoo.) As I shared a few weeks ago, I recently learned that my diet’s been too low in protein, and since the idea of snacking on a pork chop at 3 p.m. doesn’t exactly appeal to me, I’ve been finding new, healthy ways to incorporate protein throughout the day. My quest lead me to these scrumptious blueberry banana smoothies, which taste gloriously similar to fresh blueberry pie.

Whether you’re looking for a tasty way to squeeze in a few extra servings of fruits and veggies, to up your protein intake like me, or are simply a fan of things that taste wonderful, these blueberry pie smoothies are sure to please.

I have been making a lot of smoothies as of late (as in one almost every single afternoon for the past six weeks), and this blueberry pie smoothie is my favorite so far (I’m also all about this creamy Watermelon Smoothie). It’s bursting with fresh blueberry flavor, yes, but what really sets it apart is the “pie” aspect. Its flavor reminds me of a slice of fresh blueberry pie with a creamy scoop of ice cream! Two tablespoons of oatmeal and a dollop of almond butter give it true dessert richness. The oatmeal also adds a subtle “crust” vibe and makes the smoothie more filling. (For another oat-packed option, check out this Oatmeal Smoothie!) Banana is on hand for sweetness and super smoothie body. This blueberry banana smoothie is thick and luxurious, as any self-respecting pie imitator should be.

As I shared Wednesday when I spilled my guts about going 67 days without refined sugar, I’ve been keeping the added sweeteners in my diet to a minimum, so now when I make this blueberry pie smoothie, I actually omit the maple syrup called for in the recipe all together. I suggest making it first without, then tasting it to see if you’d like to add a little. For me, the frozen banana provides plenty of naturally sweet goodness on its own.

The scoop of protein powder in the recipe is completely optional. At the moment, I’m adding a ½ scoop of this unsweetened whey protein to mine (FYI, this brand is similar and comes in a smaller container), but if you prefer a flavored powder, I imagine vanilla would be delicious.

Recommended Tools to Make Healthy Smoothies

  • Blender. This traditional blender works really nicely and is ultra easy to clean, while I use the individual small attachment on this one if I’m just making a single smoothie.
  • Stainless Steel Straws. Everything automatically tastes more refreshing through these straws.

Finally, if you’d like to see this blueberry pie smoothie (and the many other smoothie concoctions I’m blending up) in action, you can follow me on Snapchat at WellPlated. I often post the smoothie ingredients I’m throwing together, though be warned: my younger sister texted me yesterday to inform me that she would be giving me a Snapchat lesson, so whatever I’m doing right now must be even more embarrassing than I suspected. You’ve been warned.

  1. These smoothies look great and so delicious, Erin! Love blueberry pie – so good. Definitely going to be trying this out! 

  2. This smoothie sounds awesome! I’m with you, I just can’t get enough blueberries this time of year!

  3. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it but I still have to figure out how  to use Snapchat. My hubby watched some tutorials of YouTube but I refuse to do it. You don’t need a tutorial about a social platform used by millions of teenagers when you’re 25. Maybe when I’m 80, we’ll see hahaha. 
    P.S.: stuffing your cheeks with blueberries is the way to go!

  4. Idk if I found a good deal but I got a ninja blender for less than $50 at target. It has a small attachment to chop food and an actual blender attachment too. SO WORTH what I spent for it. 

    1. Great question, Tracey! I began adding nutrition info to my recipes in 2016, but unfortunately it’s too time consuming to go back to previous ones and add it. If you’re curious, you can use a free online nutrition calculator like MyFitnessPal—you just plug in the url of this blog post to get started! I’m sorry I’m not able to provide specifics, but I hope MyFitnessPal can be a helpful resource.

  5. This is one of the best smoothies I’ve made!! My new favorite and it is very filling.  The cinnamon is a great accent and I used a vanilla protein powder.  5 stars

  6. We picked and froze blueberries when my mom came to visit last summer and recipes like this make me so glad we did! I came here after reading the email about the oatmeal smoothie today, which I will have to try another day because I am thinking this smoothie-with-oats thing for breakfast is where it’s at! Unfortunately, I only got maybe 2/3 of it, as my 2 year old kept wanting to steal some. But even so, I am not hungry and we are almost to lunchtime! Thanks for another great recipe.5 stars

  7. So yummy!! All four of my kids and I loved this! Only change was adding a small handful of almonds instead of almond butter.5 stars
