Blueberry Muffin Smoothie Recipe

Yields: 1-2 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries: The star of the show! Frozen blueberries keep the smoothie thick and frosty.
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (vanilla or plain): Adds creaminess, protein, and a subtle tang.
  • 1/3 cup milk (of your choice): Use regular milk, almond milk, soy milk – whatever you prefer.
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats: Gives the smoothie that classic muffin-like texture.
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or nut butter of choice): Adds richness and healthy fats.
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional): For a touch of sweetness, adjust to your liking.
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract: Enhances the flavor profile.
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon: A warm, comforting touch.

Instructions:

  • Combine ingredients: Add all ingredients (frozen blueberries, yogurt, milk, oats, almond butter, sweetener, vanilla extract, and cinnamon) into a high-powered blender.
  • Blend: Blend until completely smooth and creamy. If you like a thicker smoothie, add a few ice cubes. If it’s too thick, add a splash more milk.
  • Taste and adjust: Give your smoothie a taste and adjust sweetness or any other flavors if desired.
  • Serve and enjoy: Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately!

Tasty Variations

  • Boost the protein: Add a scoop of your favorite vanilla or plain protein powder.
  • Go tropical: Swap half the blueberries for frozen banana.
  • Extra fiber: Add a tablespoon of chia seeds or flaxseed meal.
  • Make it a meal: This smoothie can be a base; top it with granola, fresh berries, and a drizzle of nut butter for a more filling experience.
