Why You’ll Love This Easy Blueberry Smoothie
- It Truly Tastes DELISH. Like my Watermelon Smoothie and Strawberry Smoothie, this blueberry smoothie tastes more decadent than it is. It’s bursting with fresh blueberry taste, yes, but what 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!
- It’s Packed with Nutrients. This smoothie (and all of my healthy breakfast smoothies) is an excellent way to sneak more protein and fruits into your day. Blueberries are an excellent source of vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. Plus, they’re easy to keep in the freezer. Take the fiber-rich oats, calcium-packed Greek yogurt, and banana into consideration, and the blueberry smoothie benefits are endless!
- It’s Easy to Adapt. While I typically enjoy this smoothie recipe exactly as it is written, like this Mango Smoothie and Green Smoothie, you can certainly adapt the ingredients to fit your needs or tastes. Toss in protein powder, greens, natural sweeteners (like maple syrup or honey), chia seeds, or anything else you enjoy!

“This is one of the best smoothies I’ve made!! My new favorite and it is very filling.”— Kathryn —
How to Make A Healthy Blueberry Smoothie
- Frozen Blueberries. While there are a handful of important blueberry smoothie ingredients, these are 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, try my Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie.)
- Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt. Making this a blueberry smoothie with yogurt ensures it is protein-packed and extra satisfying. (Have extra yogurt on hand? Try this Greek Yogurt Smoothie.)
- 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.
- 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.
- Prep. Add all the ingredients to a blender.
- Blend. Puree until smooth. ENJOY!
- 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.
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.
What to Serve With a Blueberry Smoothie
- Muffins. Healthy Blueberry Muffins, Banana Oatmeal Muffins, or Coconut Flour Muffins would pair nicely with this refreshing smoothie.
- Eggs. For a protein-packed breakfast, pair this smoothie with Easy Kale Feta Egg Toast, Egg Muffins, or Bagel Egg in a Hole with Smashed Avocado.
- Oats. You’ll stay full for hours if you enjoy Overnight Steel Cut Oats, Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats, or Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats with this recipe.
- Bars. Breakfast Bars, Vegan Protein Bars, or Healthy Granola Bars would perfectly complement this smoothie.
Recommended Tools to Make This Recipe
- Blender. This blender is an investment that has been completely worth it. This blender is also a very good, more economical option. (Both would be great for making this Kale Smoothie!)
- Stainless Steel Straws. Everything automatically tastes more refreshing through these straws.
Recipe Tips and Tricks
- Choose Your Nut Butter. As written, this smoothie uses almond butter. However, you can swap it for any nut butter you prefer (or make it nut-free butter instead).
- Try a Smoothie Bowl. 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. (Try this Strawberry Mango Smoothie as a bowl next!)
- Sip Before You Sweeten. This blueberry smoothie has lots of natural sweetness on its own, so I recommend trying a sip before adding any other sweeteners.

- 1/2 tablespoon almond butter

- Optional: 1-2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
- Place the blueberries, bananas, Greek yogurt, oats, almond butter, vanilla, cinnamon, almond milk, and protein powder (if using) in your blender and puree until smooth.
