This plant based smoothie is packed with all of the delicious flavor, color, and nutritional benefits that come from blueberries, and is the perfect way to start your morning!
I love this recipe because it is so quick and easy to make. That makes it perfect for a fast breakfast on a busy morning or a refreshing snack or treat that you can make in a pinch.
This blueberry smoothie bowl is made using super simple ingredients that you can easily store in your fridge and freezer.
Blueberries: They are the star of the show in this vegan smoothie recipe. I like to pre-freeze all of the fruit for my smoothies to get a frozen and creamy consistency.
Along with the beautiful color and sweet taste, blueberries have a ton of nutritional benefits that make me love this recipe even more!
Blackberries: The blackberries add more sweetness and great berry flavor to this blueberry smoothie recipe. You can omit if necessary, but I don't recommend it.
Banana: I should have called this recipe a blueberry banana smoothie, because the banana is just as important as the blueberries.
Adding a banana is the best way to sweeten a smoothie in my opinion. Freeze it ahead of time for an extra smooth and creamy texture.
If you must omit the banana, I recommend substituting a cup of ice and half a cup of vanilla vegan yogurt in its place.
Oat Milk: I love to make a good oat milk smoothie. In my opinion, making a smoothie with oat milk as the liquid base will give you an amazingly creamy and sweet flavor and texture.
If you don't have oat milk, you can use any other plant-based milk in its place.
See recipe card for quantities.
This is such an easy smoothie recipe (yay)!
Simply add everything to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
You can troubleshoot or adjust as you prefer. You can add extra ice to make things a little frostier, extra oat milk to make it less thick. Even add a little maple syrup to sweeten things up more if you want.
Tips and Tricks
My number one trick for smoothies like this, is to freeze ALL of your fruit in advance.
You can usually buy frozen berries in the frozen foods section at the grocery store and that's a great way to skip a step.
I buy a huge bunch or two of ripe bananas every week (we make a lot of smoothies at my house) and freeze them in a large Ziploc bag. This way I always have plenty of frozen fruit ready to go.
Another trick is that you can easily make this a blueberry protein smoothie by adding either a scoop of your favorite vegan protein powder, or a tablespoon of nut butter.
