*Scroll down to the recipe box for quantities.
Here is what you will need to make this smoothie:
Frozen blueberries: Using frozen fruit yields a thick, smooth texture.
Frozen banana: Frozen banana is perfect for creating a creamy texture.
Peanut butter: I use natural peanut butter, but any peanut butter should work.
Almond milk or oat milk: Both of these milks work great for this smoothie. A different, fairly neutral tasting milk should also work.
Chia seeds: Chia seeds add plant-based protein and healthy fats. And you won’t even notice them in your smoothie!
Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract is optional for added flavor.
How to make
This smoothie is super simple. Just add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Add additional milk if needed, or if you just prefer a thinner texture to your smoothie.
Slowly add more milk if needed. I like my smoothies to be super thick, so add more milk if you like a thinner texture. You may also need more milk to get this smoothie blended if you don’t have a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix.
Make sure you add any extra milk a little bit at a time so that you don’t accidentally add too much. You may end up making your smoothie too thin if you add too much extra milk all at once.
Blend your chia seeds into your smoothie. Some people just like to mix chia seeds into a smoothie, but I like to add my chia seeds to my blender with everything else so that they get blended in. This way you are left with a smooth and creamy texture!
Adjustments and substitutions
If you don’t have chia seeds or don’t want to add them to your smoothie, you can substitute with hemp seeds. You can also just omit the chia seeds with no replacement.
Feel free to omit the vanilla extract as well, but I enjoy the added flavor!
I recommend oat milk or almond milk for this recipe, but any milk should work. Just make sure you aren’t using a milk with a strong, overpowering taste.
