Can we talk about how beautiful the smoothie color is?! The cool bluish-purple color of blueberries is from the high levels of phytonutrients called anthocyanidins – those are good for building and strengthening collagen. Blueberries for the win!

Second hero ingredient in this recipe? Bananas!

And bananas, well they are one of the highest sources of potassium next to avocados. Potassium is an electrolyte that we lose when we sweat, so putting that back in your body is great for bone health!

I throw all the solid ingredients in the blender first.

Then I pour in the almond milk. I like to use unsweetened almond milk since the bananas are ripe and sweet, but you can use any kind of milk you want.

Then, I blend all the ingredients together for about one minute until it’s all smooth and creamy!

Recipe Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight mason jar. It will stay fresh for up to 24 hours. But ideally, it's best to consume immediately after making

Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.

  • Instead of almond milk, you can use any other plant-based milk to keep this vegan, or use regular or 2% milk
  • To replace the banana, you can use one cup of any chopped fruit. To keep the blue color, I recommend pineapple, apple or pear,

Equipment: I use the NutriBullet to make smoothies. It pulverizes the toughest fruits and vegetables for a smooth and creamy consistency

Nutrition: Please note that the nutrition label provided is an estimate based on an online nutrition calculator. It will vary based on the specific ingredients you use.  This information should not be considered a substitute for a professional nutritionist’s advice.

      Thanks Gabby! It’s a little thick, but not too bad. If you want it thicker after it’s done, you can add some oats to thicken it up!
