Here is everything you will need to make this blueberry almond butter smoothie:
- Frozen blueberries: Using frozen fruit will make your smoothie thick and chilled.
- Frozen banana: You will only need ½ of a frozen banana for this smoothie. Using frozen will make the smoothie thick and creamy.
- Almond butter: I prefer using natural almond butter that is made with only almond butter and maybe some salt, but nothing else.
- Maple syrup: For some added sweetness. You can omit this if you find the smoothie sweet enough without it.
- Chia seeds or hemp hearts: These are easy to add to your smoothie and they both provide some added plant-based protein.
- Oat milk: This is to blend your smoothie. You could also use a different type of milk or just water.
Pre-freeze bananas. This smoothie only requires ½ of a frozen banana, but if you enjoy smoothies I recommend freezing large batches of bananas because they are perfect for smoothies. I like to peel and chop bananas in half, then freeze them in sealed containers ensuring to place layers of parchment paper between bananas so they don’t stick together when they freeze.
Try blending your smoothie with one cup of milk. If you can’t get it blended, slowly add more milk until you can get it blended. If you like thick smoothies, be careful not to add too much milk.
Substitutions and adjustments
- Chia seeds or hemp hearts add some great nutrition to a smoothie without changing the flavor. If you don’t have either or don’t want to use them, you can simply omit them.
- Use any type of milk you’d like. You can even just blend your smoothie with water.
- If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you may need to add some more liquid to get your smoothie blended. You can also add more liquid if you just prefer a thinner texture to your smoothie.
