In my opinion, blueberries don’t get enough attention in smoothies. They’re often part of a mixed berry smoothie, but rarely do they get to be the feature. Well, this Blueberry Smoothie brings the delicious sweetness of blueberries to the forefront! And it’s so good.

This recipe is made with four simple ingredients, perfectly creamy, and has just the right amount of blueberry flavor complemented by frozen banana. It’s ready in just 5 minutes!

  • Milk: any kind of milk will work! Don’t want to use milk? Try juice! Keep in mind this will change the texture of the smoothie.
  • Greek Yogurt: plain or vanilla Greek yogurt is a great way to add extra flavor, a boost of protein, and to create an ultra creamy smoothie.
  • Frozen Fruit: a combination of frozen banana and frozen blueberries creates delicious flavor and a creamy texture.

How to Make a Blueberry Smoothie

  1. Combine: Add all of the ingredients to your blender in the order listed (see my post on How to Make a Smoothie for more ideas!).
  2. Blend: Blend until smooth, adjusting the consistency as needed, then serve and enjoy.

Smoothie FAQs

Do you need yogurt for a smoothie?

Not necessarily. However, the yogurt is a great way to thicken the smoothie and create the best creamy texture. I recommend it! If you decide not to use yogurt, keep in mind that the texture of the smoothie will not be the same.

What fruit goes well with blueberries?

I like to keep it simple with banana along with the blueberries, but you can totally play around with whatever frozen fruit you think sounds good.

Is it better to make smoothies with milk or water?

I definitely think milk is the best option when it comes to smoothies. It makes for a richer flavor and a creamier texture. You can also use water, non-dairy milk or juice but keep in mind that all will change the flavor slightly.

Is a blueberry smoothie good for you?

Totally! This blueberry smoothie is made with banana and blueberries, both of which are loaded with vitamins and nutrients. It’s also made with Greek yogurt which is a great source of protein.

How long will my smoothie keep after I’ve made it?

I recommend serving smoothies right away for the best texture.
If you make one and don’t finish it, you can refrigerate it for a couple of hours, or store in the freezer for longer periods.
I recommend freezing in an ice cube tray or similar and then re-blending with additional liquid to serve.

Blueberry Banana Smoothie Variations

  • Add other fruit. I love the blueberry and banana combo, but feel free to play around with other frozen fruit. Try raspberries, strawberries, pineapple, mango, you name it.
  • Boost the nutrition. Blend in a spoonful of flax seeds, vanilla protein powder, chia seeds, or a scoop of nut butter for some extra protein.
  • Make it green. Blend in a handful of baby spinach or kale for a green blueberry smoothie. The color won’t be as nice, but it will taste just as good!
  • Make it sweeter. This smoothie is already sweet thanks to the banana, but feel free to make it even sweeter with a drizzle of honey, maple syrup, or agave.
  • Thicken it up. Make your smoothie a little more filling with a scoop of old-fashioned oats.

Serving Suggestions

A blueberry smoothie makes a great healthy snack or light breakfast, but it’s also a great addition to a bigger breakfast!

Serve it next to a slice of Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake, Baked Oatmeal, Whole Wheat Pancakes, you name it.
