Kim’s Tips

Tips
  • Make sure you are using a ripe banana in the smoothie as they are much sweeter than unripe bananas.
  • Feel free to start blending with one cup of ice, then add more if the texture is too thin.
  • Honey is an optional ingredient to make the smoothie sweeter if necessary. Use as much or as little as you like or omit completely.
  • The ice is great for creating a thick smoothie. If desired, the ice can be omitted. Use all frozen fruit in its place instead.

Variations

  • Change up the fruit you use by adding strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries in place of the blueberries.
  • This smoothie can also be made into a green smoothie by adding spinach or kale.
  • If you want a little extra sweetness, add a tablespoon of maple syrup or agave nectar.
  • Add additional fiber to the smoothie by adding a handful of oats or chia seeds.
  • For a tropical twist, add mango, pineapple, or papaya along with the banana.
  • Use a scoop of your favorite protein powder in the mix to add even more protein to the blueberry smoothie.

Notes

*The calories listed are an approximation based on the ingredients in the recipe card and a serving size of 1 (14-ounce) smoothie. Actual calories will vary.
 
*Use the ice to thicken the smoothie. It’s very thin without any ice. However, 2-3 cups of ice thickens it nicely. If you decide not to use ice, try using all frozen fruit instead and adjust the milk as desired.
 
*The honey is optional, and can be adjusted based on how sweet you like your smoothies.
 
*Use 1 large banana or 2 small bananas.
