Ingredients

  • 1 banana, sliced and frozen
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup (about 4 ounces) vanilla Greek-style yogurt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 ice cubes

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a blender. Process until thick and smooth. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Using frozen fruit is the key to a thick, creamy smoothie. I like to slice overripe bananas, wrap them individually, and then stash them in the freezer to grab for smoothies whenever we need them.
  • You can start with fresh blueberries (and freeze them in ½-cup portions) or you can purchase a bag of unsweetened frozen blueberries in the freezer section at the grocery store.
  • Add a squeeze of lemon juice to the smoothie for a bright, fresh burst of flavor.
  • We use vanilla flavored Greek-style yogurt, but you can substitute with plain Greek yogurt to reduce the amount of sugar in the smoothie. If you're using plain yogurt, I suggest adding a dash of vanilla extract for flavor, as well as a bit of honey or other sweetener of choice (if desired).
  • I use 2% milk in the smoothies because that's what my boys prefer; however, you can substitute with any variety of milk or non-dairy milk alternative (such as almond milk).
  • Make a Banana Blueberry Spinach Smoothie by adding a handful of baby spinach leaves to the blender. It won't change the taste of the smoothie, but it will add some great nutrients!
  • Prepare a Blueberry Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie by adding a tablespoon or two of peanut butter to the blender for staying power and healthy fats.
  • Make it a Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie by including a ¼-cup of raw oats in the blender. It will thicken the drink, add fiber, and make it even more filling.
