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.

When planning our month-long Yummiest Ever Smoothie Series (see this Green Smoothie, this Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie, and this Peach Smoothie if you’d like to catch up), I started by brainstorming which fruits are good for smoothies.

Berries, like blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, along with bananas are some of the best, most delicious, and healthy fruits to add to a smoothie, with blueberries being 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!

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 makes the smoothie thick and creamy. For a blueberry smoothie (no banana), check out my Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie.
  • Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt. Protein-packed Greek yogurt gives this smoothie the boost it needs to be 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. If you prefer peanut butter, you can try this as a blueberry banana peanut butter smoothie instead.
  • 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 with milk helps us reach the ideal consistency.

Dietary Swaps

To make this blueberry smoothie vegan, make sure to 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.

The Directions

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

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.
  • 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.

Serving Idea

Make 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 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 try 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.

  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.

  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
