Recipe at a Glance

Cuisine Inspiration: American
Primary Cooking Method: No-Cook
Dietary Info: Vegetarian, Gluten Free
Key Flavor: Sweet, cool, & a little tangy
Skill Level: Beginner


  • Short list of ingredients: All you need are 5 ingredients for a delicious blueberry banana almond milk smoothie.
  • Versatile: Use this recipe as a base for any other blueberry smoothie recipes you’d like to make! Swap the milk, use frozen blueberries, or try a different kind of yogurt; add more ingredients to bulk it up; throw in some ice cubes for an extra cool and icy blueberry banana smoothie. Make it your own!
  • Full of nutrients: Blueberries’ cool bluish-purple color comes from their high levels of phytonutrients called anthocyanidins, which are good for building and strengthening collagen. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, too. Meanwhile, Greek yogurt and almond butter add protein to this blueberry banana smoothie.
  • Kid-friendly: Kids love this blueberry banana smoothie! It’s sweet, creamy, and tastes great.

Ingredients to Make This Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Ingredients to make the recipe: blueberries, bananas, hemp seeds, milk, almond butter
  • Blueberries: For the best flavor, choose large, plump blueberries. If blueberries are out of season, you can also use frozen blueberries.
  • Bananas: I like to use frozen bananas for a cool and creamy smoothie.
  • Almond milk: I use unsweetened almond milk for this smoothie. Other plant-based milks, such as oat milk, are delicious as well, or feel free to sub in dairy milk if you prefer. 
  • Greek yogurt: Plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt adds creaminess, protein, and a bit of tangy flavor. 
  • Almond butter: You can use any nut butter you’d like. I like using almond butter to thicken the smoothie, add a little nutty flavor, and bulk it up with some protein.
  • Make it vegan: For a dairy-free, plant-based smoothie, leave out the Greek yogurt or substitute vegan yogurt. 
  • Amp up the omegas: Add a teaspoon or two of hemp seeds, flax seeds, or chia seeds for a little protein boost and a dose of healthy omega fats.
  • Vary the berries: Make a mixed berry smoothie by using frozen mixed berries instead of 100% blueberries.
  • Increase the sweetness: If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, drizzle in a little honey or pure maple syrup and blend.
  • Use a different nut butter: Instead of almond butter, try peanut butter for a nuttier taste or cashew butter for a touch of creamy sweetness.
  • Add vanilla: Add a little splash of pure vanilla extract for a blueberry smoothie that tastes like a milkshake. It’s delicious in blueberry smoothie recipes!

Tips for Making the Best Blueberry Banana Smoothie

  1. Follow a specific order to load your blender: The easiest way to get an even blend is to add liquids first, then fruit, then ice on top (if you’re using it).
  2. Use frozen bananas: They’re key to a cool, ultra-creamy smoothie. However, if you don’t have frozen bananas on hand, unfrozen bananas will work–your smoothie just won’t be as cold. To compensate for that, I like to add a handful of ice cubes.
  3. Adjust the thickness: For a thinner smoothie, add a little more milk. For a thicker smoothie, add more bananas or Greek yogurt. You can also blend in ice for a thicker, icy-cold smoothie.

How to Store Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Blueberry smoothie recipes can be stored in the refrigerator. If you have any leftovers or you’re making them ahead of time, place them in an airtight container and transfer them to the fridge.

How Long Will Blueberry Banana Smoothie Last in the Fridge?

This blueberry banana smoothie will last up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.

Can I Freeze Blueberry Banana Smoothie with Greek Yogurt?

Yes, you can freeze this smoothie! Transfer your blueberry banana smoothie to a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 1 month. To thaw, move it to the refrigerator to thaw overnight and it’ll be ready to drink in the morning. Shake or stir it if the ingredients separate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this blueberry smoothie without banana?

Yes! If possible, I recommend freezing the blueberries so they blend up cold and creamy or increasing the amount of Greek yogurt to compensate for the lack of bananas. Bananas also add natural sweetness, so you may want to add a bit of honey to restore some of the sweetness.

Can I add spinach or kale to this smoothie?

Absolutely! I recommend baby spinach or baby kale for the mildest flavor. Also, keep in mind that the dark leafy greens will change the color of the smoothie to a more muddy color.

Can I add protein powder to this smoothie?

Sure! I recommend unflavored or vanilla, though chocolate might be good for a chocolate-berry taste (just know that the color will change!)
