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!

How to Make A Healthy Blueberry Smoothie

The Ingredients

  • 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.

Optional Mix-ins

  • 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. (Don’t miss my Blueberry Spinach Smoothie and Avocado Smoothie for more green smoothie recipes.)
  • Seeds. Full of healthy fats, antioxidants, and fiber, these little seeds pack a nutritional punch. Try chia seeds, hemp seeds, or flax seeds.

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.

What to Serve With a Blueberry Smoothie

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
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Have been tossing blubes into EVERYTHING. It’s just that time of year. Bring on the fatties! :)

  2. Hum I love blueberry smoothies and I often make it for breakfast. This looks delicious  ;-)

  3. This sounds like a really great smoothie.  For both flavor and texture, the protein powder we use (which nothing else has matched) is Designer Whey.  We like the plain, the French Vanilla and the Double Chocolate flavors.  The flavored ones are sweetened with Stevia (not so for all Designer Whey flavors), which is good for those who don’t like artificial sweeteners.

    1. Thanks for the tip on the protein powder Susan! I will check it out. Hope you love the smoothie :-)

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

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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

    1. I’m so happy that you enjoyed the smoothie, Kiersten! Thank you for sharing this kind review!

  10. This blueberry smoothie is delicious and whips up in a few minutes! Thoughts of the blueberry, vanilla and cinnamon flavors make getting out of bed early in the morning easier!5 stars

  11. I recently discovered this smoothie and I couldn’t believe I’d never tried frozen blueberries before! I so appreciated this recipe – it’s delicious and the cinnamon is such a lovely addition! thank you!5 stars

  12. I haven’t found a single smoothie recipe I haven’t liked, this one is no exception. I’ve made it a challenge to myself to try every single one of Erin’s smoothies. Hopefully everything she makes is good cause I’ll be buying the recipe book!5 stars

  13. Needed to make something with blueberries where it would be ok if they were soft. This was so good! Husband, toddler, and myself approve! Had to substitute whole milk and peanut butter, and didn’t freeze the berries or banana but it was still delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!5 stars

  14. I found your website and thought I’d give this a whirl. I’m so glad I did because it was so, so delicious! I followed it exactly as written and I will make this again and again. Can’t wait to try your other smoothie recipes!!5 stars

  15. So delicious 😋..I added honey instead of maple syrup .. my daughter had this after her oral surgery .. loved it!!5 stars

    1. Hi Brice! There is a recipe card in the post that has all of the instructions. There is also a “jump to recipe” button right at the top of the page on the right hand side to help you get there faster. Hope this helps!

  16. what a terrible recipe, all it does is list ingredients no measurements. a complete waste of time visiting this site

    1. Hi Douglas, I’m sorry you feel that way but you had to scroll right past the full recipe to the comment section. It’s right above it. Also there is a “jump to recipe” button at the top of the page to help you get there faster. Hope this helps!

  17. Excellent!!! The almond butter and vanilla extract really add a depth of flavor to this recipe! I added a scoop of unflavored Truvani protein powder too! Delicious !

    Love allll your recipes! Need to get your cookbook!5 stars

  18. Just got all the ingredients to make this smoothie. Looks delicious! My only question is the 17 grams of sugar. Is that including the optional maple syrup?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Barb! The nutritional information is not always completely accurate and can vary depending on ingredients and brands of ingredients used. When in doubt I would double check with a free source like myfitnesspal.com. It does not include the maple syrup. Hope this helps!

  19. This was delicious. Not always a fan of smoothies and think they can be too sweet or too sour. This was perfect. Used a cinnamon peanut butter we had bought and never eaten yet.

    Thanks!5 stars

  20. Came across your website recently looking for healthier smoothie recipes, love this smoothie, have made it several times in the past couple of weeks, sweetness is just right for me and didn’t need to add the maple syrup. It’s very filling and one of my favourite smoothies, will be trying the green smoothies next……..Thank you :-)5 stars
