A completely nutritious, cool, and creamy smoothie that also tastes like blueberry pie? Count me in! This Blueberry Smoothie truly delivers the best of all worlds.

Two cups with a healthy blueberry smoothie

Lately, I’ve been trying to find new and exciting ways to sneak more protein, fruits, and veggies into my day, and smoothies are one of my favorite go-to morning and afternoon boosts.

Delicious frozen berries, like blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, along with bananas, are some of the healthiest fruits to put in a smoothie.

Blueberries tend to be my favorite.

They’re easy to keep in the freezer and they remind me of summer, just like this creamy Watermelon Smoothie.

This scrumptious blueberry banana smoothie tastes deeply fruity, refreshing, and richly satisfying.

Every sip makes me think of a long summer day, and I feel 100% fabulous enjoying something that tastes this good and is good for me too!

(If you love this berry flavor and want to squeeze in some green nutrients, also try this Blueberry Spinach Smoothie or Avocado Smoothie with blueberries.)

How to Make A Healthy Blueberry Smoothie

Blueberry smoothies are good for you, and this one also includes the perk of being completely and totally delicious.

  • It’s bursting with fresh blueberry taste, yes, but what really sets this Greek yogurt blueberry banana smoothie apart is that its flavor is reminiscent of a slice of fresh blueberry pie with a creamy scoop of ice cream. Yum and YUM!
  • This smoothie is thick, luxurious, and craving-worthy, as any self-respecting pie imitator should be.
  • It also offers protein and healthy fats, so you can count on it keeping you full all morning.

The Ingredients

  • Frozen Blueberries. The star of the show!
  • Frozen Banana. Banana is good in smoothies because it adds natural sweetness and helps give the smoothie its creamy texture.


For a blueberry smoothie without banana, check out my Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie.

  • Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt. Making this a blueberry smoothie with yogurt ensures it is protein-packed and extra satisfying.
  • Rolled Oats. Oats give the smoothie body, make it more filling, and add a subtle “crust” vibe. (For another oat-packed option, check out this Oatmeal Smoothie!)
  • Almond Butter. Helps make the smoothie more satisfying and gives it rich flavor.

Ingredient Swap

If you prefer peanut butter, you can try this as a blueberry banana peanut butter smoothie instead. I think cashew butter would also be tasty.

  • Vanilla + Cinnamon. The key ingredients that take this from being a basic blueberry smoothie to one that tastes like a blueberry pie in a glass.
  • Almond Milk. I chose to make this a vanilla almond milk blueberry smoothie, but you can use any milk you have on hand. Making this a blueberry smoothie recipe with milk helps us reach the ideal consistency.

The Directions

Blender with ingredients for making a blueberry smoothie
  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender.
  2. Puree blueberry smoothie until smooth. ENJOY!

Optional Mix-ins

For blueberry smoothie variations, see some ideas below:

  • Protein Powder. For an extra protein boost, add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. I like vanilla here.
  • Maple Syrup. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, add a teaspoon or two of pure maple syrup or honey. (To keep this recipe healthy, you should not mix refined sugar into a smoothie.)
  • Spinach. Make this into a blueberry banana spinach smoothie by adding a handful of spinach to the blender. Spinach will alter the color of the smoothie a bit, but you won’t be able to taste it.
  • Seeds. Full of healthy fats, antioxidants, and fiber, these little seeds pack a nutritional punch. Try chia seeds, hemp seeds, or flax seeds.

Serving Idea

Use my Smoothie Bowl recipe for inspiration, and turn this into a blueberry smoothie bowl by adding a few ice cubes and additional frozen blueberries to make it as thick as possible. Pour it into a bowl and add your favorite toppings. Fresh blueberries, banana slices, or granola would be tasty! Grab a spoon and enjoy.

Storage Tips

  • To Store. Cover and refrigerate leftovers for up to 1 day.
  • To Freeze. Freeze smoothies in an airtight, freezer-safe storage jar for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

Make-Ahead Tip

You can also make your smoothie in advance, then pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze for up to 3 months. When you are ready to serve, add your desired number of smoothie cubes to a blender and puree.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Make a Vegan Blueberry Smoothie?

To make this blueberry smoothie vegan, use a non-dairy milk and non-dairy yogurt. You can also make this a blueberry smoothie without yogurt, but you may want to swap in some extra ice cubes to thicken it up.

What Fruits Blend Well with Blueberries?

For this smoothie, I love pairing bananas with blueberries. Other fruits that blend well with blueberries are strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, mangoes, kiwi, pineapple (like in my Beet Smoothie), and more.

Can I Make this Blueberry Smoothie with Water?

While you could swap the almond milk for water in this recipe, it would impact the overall flavor and texture of the smoothie. The almond milk helps make it creamier and adds flavor. If you add protein powder, that will help make the smoothie creamy, so you can then use water.
