Healthy Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie Recipe
Spring is finally here, so here comes the fruity healthy smoothie craving all over again! As always, I fill my smoothie up with healthy fats and greens and use very little sugar to make it a fulfilling meal replacement that won’t cause a crash or leave me hungry a few hours later.
Healthy Smoothie Tip
Here’s a little smoothie making tip: stock up on frozen goods (bags of frozen spinach, kale, blueberries, blackberries, cauliflower. Buy extra avocados at the market, cut them in half, scoop them out and freeze those, too. Then you'll always be smoothie ready!
Behind the Wellness Blogger Curtain
Making smoothies is all fun and games until they melt before you get the good shot. Scroll down to see a little behind the scene action. My reality as a wellness blogger is a lot of half-melted smoothies, paper towels everywhere, and trying not to drip anything the dog shouldn’t lick up. That's real life for ya.
Also, I devour my smoothies as soon as I photograph them. There is no hidden freezer tricks in my bag. What I show you here, I eat on a regular basis, and as I mentioned, this smoothie recipe is truly satisfying and checks the healthy fats and protein boxes. I hope you love the recipe as much as I do, and I am always open to suggestions and adaptations, so drop them in the comments below!
Healthy Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie
Serving size: 1
8 oz unsweetened nut milk (almond, coconut, or hemp)
1/4 cup frozen spinach
1/2 cup frozen cauliflower (I love using purple cauliflower if it's in season!)
1/2 avocado (frozen or fresh)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (you can also sub blackberries)
Add your liquid and protein powder to the blender first, and give it a whirl. Then add in your frozen goods. If you need more liquid, add more nut milk or water in tablespoon increments, but if you have a strong blender like this Vitamix, you can just keep blending without any added liquid and the result is a smoothie thicker than a milkshake! I love eating mine with a spoon.
Top your smoothie with something crunchy - it helps kickstart your digestion.! I love granola, coconut flakes, or a Square Organics bar.
