I have a thing for smoothies that not only taste good, but look amazing too. And this creamy blueberry smoothie does not disappoint. For starters, just look at the stunning shade of purple! It’s so vibrant and full of life, I feel like I can taste the blueberries just from looking at it. Blended with your choice of milk (dairy or non-dairy), each refreshing sip is fruity and just sweet enough, with a subtle hint of warm cinnamon for a little something extra.

What Fruit Goes Well with Blueberries?

Bananas are a great partner to blueberries. Here you’ll use two peeled and roughly chopped frozen bananas. Not only do they complement the berries and add sweetness, but they also add a thick and creamy texture.

Main Ingredients in Blueberry Smoothie

  • Frozen blueberries
  • Frozen banana
  • Pitted dates
  • Chia seeds
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Milk of choice (use dairy milk or keep it vegan with your favorite plant-based milk)
