Healthy Blueberry Smoothie (4 Ingredients)
If you&rsquore feeling down and you need a little mood-booster, this Healthy Blueberry Smoothie is the perfect drink for you. You&rsquoll only need 4 ingredients and I&rsquom pretty sure you have everything at home for it already.
This purple smoothie is my favorite smoothie right now. On hot summer days, you can substitute the bananas with frozen bananas, that way the smoothie will even have a cooling effect and it&rsquos like an ice cream shake! So good!
For this smoothie, I&rsquove used unsweetened rice coconut milk which is my favorite at the moment. Of course, you can use your favorite plant-based milk. There are tons of options: almond milk, oat milk, hemp milk, cashew milk, hazelnut milk, soy milk etc.. However, the bananas make the smoothie sweet enough, so I&rsquod suggest using unsweetened milk.
Gain the most from your recovery period with this delicious post-workout smoothie. Bananas and blueberries are perfect for energy replenishment after a hard workout, while potassium-rich spinach (and banana) will help to alleviate post-workout muscle soreness.
Our Vegan Protein Blend boasts a combination of pea and fava bean protein to deliver the full range of essential amino acids necessary to aid growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

Blueberry Wellness Smoothie with Apple Cider Vinegar & Everyday Superfoods
Apple cider vinegar trended a bit a decade or so ago, but it’s enjoying a resurgence. This mother of healthy vinegars touts quite a few potential benefits. Research shows it may help shed harmful bacteria, aid weight loss, and reduce blood levels. Countless anecdotal cases also purport it as a “cure” for digestive issues like GERD. And of course, some people just like the lightly sweet and very tangy taste it lends to recipes.
This recipe uses a unique rice vinegar and apple cider vinegar blend that is lightly sweetened. You can substitute plain old apple cider vinegar – preferably in glass bottles and always with “the mother” (it should use this term on the bottle). We suggest just 1 tablespoon if using straight ACV, but you can use a full 2 tablespoons if you like the taste.

- oat milk (or almond milk, but oat milk is the best!)
- frozen blueberries (or fresh)
- frozen pineapple chunks (or fresh)
- frozen banana
- chia seeds
- ice to chill, if not using all frozen fruit
I like to use all frozen fruit to make this smoothie super thick and refreshing. However, you could use a combination of fresh fruit and frozen fruit. This may also make it easier to blend if you don't have a high-powered blender.
- Add more spirulina: If you can stand the taste, you can definitely increase the amount of spirulina in this smoothie. My rule with “green” smoothies is, increase the healthy ingredients only as much as you can while still making something that’s delicious. In other words, don’t add to much or you’ll stop drinking it entirely, and something is better than nothing.
- Add more cilantro: When I first made this smoothie, it didn’t have the orange in it at all, and the cilantro flavour was quite overpowering. But if you like cilantro (my husband definitely does not!) you can always add more
This Blueberry Smoothie Bowl can be made in 5 minutes for a quick and delicious breakfast. So what are you waiting for? Start your week off right with the healing powers of this vegan blueberry smoothie bowl.
Ingredients & Substitutions
- Coconut Milk &ndash I use light coconut milk that comes in a can. However, if you don&rsquot like coconut milk or would rather a lighter option, use any neutral flavored non-dairy milk of choice.
- Banana &ndash Make sure your bananas are frozen to ensure the right ice cream-like consistency. To freeze the bananas, peel and chop ripe bananas into 1&Prime pieces. Freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet. When frozen all the way through transfer the banana pieces to a ziplock bag.
- Frozen Blueberries
- Coconut Water &ndash You can also use regular water or your favorite non-dairy milk
- Kale &ndash Fresh or frozen. Spinach would also work.
- Maple Syrup &ndash This is to sweeten your smoothie. It can be omitted if you would like.
- Superfood Add-ins &ndash You can add a variety of superfoods for a healthy boost. A few of my favorites are Chia Seeds , Maca Powder , Ashwagandha Powde r . These all have incredible benefits for your mood, energy, heart, and overall health.
- Optional Toppings &ndash Top your bowls with all the goods. I&rsquom talking granola, fresh blueberries, coconut, and chia seeds.
For this recipe, all you need is a blender. I recommend a high-powered blender, like a Vitamix. (<<affiliate links)

Blueberry Smoothie with Cashew Nut Milk and Bananas
There was a time when I was having a blueberry smoothie on a daily basis. When I love something, I love it so hard that I just have it ALL the time, for a time.
And then something happened, I dunno like maybe the price of blueberries skyrocketed or something and I sort of forgot about it for a while.
Well….this old love has been revived I tell ya! I made this smoothie the other day and it was so good I knew I had to share the recipe.
And then, blueberries are so damn good for you too, and that’s just a fabulous bonus.
In truth this smoothie is just packed with the health promoting goodies.
Fresh fruits and cashew nut milk, kind of so delicious sounding right? The reality doesn’t disappoint!
This smoothie is also double thick like a double thick milkshake yo! And this is all thanks to that most marvellous of smoothie additions, which is the frozen banana.
It would be a very rare day indeed for there not to be frozen bananas in our freezer.
We buy bananas by the box and as soon as they’re ripe, we peel, quarter and freeze them in freezer bags, and this takes care of all the smoothie needs for weeks ahead.
There is really nothing quite so good as frozen bananas in a smoothie! Even if you don’t like bananas, you will likely love frozen bananas in a smoothie.
I actually can’t say enough good things about them. It’s a must try!
You’re going to love how thick, creamy, nutritious and delicious this smoothie is, not to mention how easy it is to make, with just 3 ingredients providing all the flavor this smoothie requires!
Homemade cashew nut milk is the bomb, but you can of course use store bought cashew nut milk for this shake or sub any non-dairy milk in its place.

3 Minute Blueberry Milkshake Smoothie
3 Minute Blueberry Milkshake Smoothie…a healthy protein packed smoothie that tastes like a milkshake. Best part? It’s incredibly quick and easy to make! This smoothie gets a natural boost of plant-based protein from one of my favorite budget-friendly ingredients: Pumpkin Seeds. I sprinkle them straight into the blender along with a frozen banana, blueberries, baby spinach, a dash of cinnamon, and a spoonful of silky almond butter. This combo makes an absolutely delicious smoothie but it’s really the technique that makes this easy recipe taste like a milkshake. And let me tell you, it’s heavenly.
HOW TO MAKE A PROTEIN RICH VEGAN SMOOTHIE WITHOUT PRICEY INGREDIENTS
My two best tips for tips for adding plant protein to your breakfast? Seeds and choosing the right plant milk. Let’s start with seeds.
I love using Pumpkin Seeds in smoothies because just two tablespoons adds 4.8 grams of protein! But they also pack a major nutrient punch that goes well beyond just protein. Pumpkin seeds also offer magnesium (a mineral many people don’t get enough of) zinc (which has anti-inflammatory properties) and healthy fats and fiber too. Plus they’re typically less expensive than many other nuts on and seeds on the market so I love to sprinkle pumpkin seeds on to just about everything! If you’re not a fan of eating them whole – or you can’t get your kids to eat them – this smoothie recipe is a great way to add more seeds to your diet because they blend so seamlessly.
Next, I deliberately choose a protein-rich plant milk. Don’t get me wrong, oat milk is delicious, and it’s great in this recipe too if that’s what you have on hand. But subbing something like soy milk or pea milk is ideal because they’re also creamy and both add around 8 grams of protein to this recipe. That’s a win win in my book!
HOW TO MAKE THIS SMOOTHIE TASTE LIKE A MILKSHAKE
As with most recipes, flavor is important but we can’t forget about texture! Texture is what makes a meal in my opinion because you have a delicious tasting smoothie that is somehow watery AND chunky at the same time. Raise your hand if you know exactly what I’m talking about!
Luckily, those chunky smoothies are a thing of that past because I’ve learned few tricks to make the perfect smoothie each and every time.
- Use an overripe, spotty, frozen banana. Frozen is key for creating a creamy texture because it almost acts as the ice cream in this “milkshake.” It’s also important that it’s overripe. Avoid a perfectly yellow banana here if possible. We want speckled and spotty because a ripe banana will naturally sweeten the smoothie perfectly, making it completely unnecessary to add any sweeteners later on.
- Just like with salad dressing, adding a healthy fat makes all the difference when it comes to creating a silky smooth smoothie. In this case, the almond butter is a real game changer, and in addition to complimenting the flavor of the banana and cinnamon (such a good combo!) it also works to emulsify this smoothie into the perfect milkshake consistency.
- MOST IMPORTANT STEP: Don’t just blend until all of the contents in the blender liquify. Really let it whirl for a good 30 seconds or so after that to allow for the blender to work it’s magic and emulsify this smoothie into a perfectly smooth vegan “milkshake.” This is also why using a frozen banana and frozen blueberries is key!
I hope you enjoy my 3 Minute Blueberry Milkshake Smoothie! It really is such a delicious treat, especially if you serve it with a sprinkle of granola and some extra blueberries on top!
