This creamy and filling Blueberry Muffin Protein Smoothie is bursting with fresh, juicy blueberries! So thick and satisfying, it’s a healthy, clean eating breakfast that’s best eaten with a spoon!

At this time of year, I crave cold food! It’s so hot in Virginia right now, so when I wake up in the morning the first (ok, second) thing that I reach for is a big, tall smoothie. The first is always coffee!

But if I want my smoothie to fill me up and keep me satisfied for more than a few minutes, I’ve learned that I need to load it with nutritious whole grains, fiber, and protein. Some healthy fat is nice too, so a scoop of almond butter or some chopped nuts on top are a nice addition for flavor and texture. Most importantly, though, I want my shake to be SO THICK that I have to eat it with a spoon! That’s the only way to truly feel like I’m having a meal.

So What Gives This Blueberry Smoothie That ‘Muffin’ Flavor?

For this particular smoothie, I gave it a “muffin” flavor with the help of some butter extract (found on the baking aisle near the vanilla extract or online HERE), as well as a doughy consistency (thanks to the raw oats blended right in). And just like a real blueberry muffin, I left the blueberries whole so that I could stir them in at the end.

That gives me a juicy bite of fresh berry on every spoonful! If you prefer to sip with a straw, just go ahead and blend the blueberries into the rest of the mix and use less ice. It will still be good…just minus a bit of texture!

This mouthful of sweet, creamy, satisfying goodness is a healthy and delicious summer breakfast or snack option. Enjoy!

  1. In previous summers, I’ve lived off smoothies, but they weren’t keeping me full enough. Love this protein packed one and will have to give it a try 🙂

  2. Now this is my kind of smoothie! I love that it’s protein packed and filled with blueberries. I’ve been on such a blueberry kick lately, so this is perfect!

  3. I have been all about smoothies this week. Oats are my favorite way to make them thick and spoon-able! Pinning to make this soon.

  4. Thanks Blair for these great protein smoothie! I have been looking for something healthy for breakfast and this will be my go to smoothie. Anything with blueberries is awesome.

  5. I lovee blueberry muffins so this looks like the perfect way to cool down and refuel after a tough workout!

  6. What kind of protein powder do you use? I tried this with Vega protein and it overwhelmed the flavor and wasn’t as great as I was hoping. I’d love to try again!

    1. Hey, Joylyn! I have tried the Vega protein powder in the past as well, and I just do NOT like it at all. I ended up throwing it away. 🙂

      I love the protein powders by Quest Nutrition. I’ve tried the Vanilla, Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Cinnamon, and Cookies and Cream. They’re all great! For this recipe, though, I use the vanilla. Hope that helps!
