If you’re a longtime reader of What’s Gaby Cooking then you’re well aware that I’m all about balance. One day I’m having birthday cake, and the next I’m powering up with a delicious farmers market salad. It’s all about keeping things fresh, balanced and delicious – and it always starts with breakfast!

Banana Blueberry smoothies appear on the regular in the WGC kitchen. They are loaded with superfoods to get me going in the morning and I find that when I start the day on a healthy note, it keeps me energized and happy all day long without loading on the calories! Plus having a healthy, protein filled, breakfast means it’s okay to break off a piece of dark chocolate mid-day for a little sweet treat – because after all, it’s all about balance!! Also, one should never deny themselves some chocolate ☺

You just need a few simple ingredients for this one – a banana, frozen blueberries (using frozen blueberries allows you to cut out the ice so your smoothie doesn’t get watery), a touch of almond milk, chia seeds and a dash of agave nectar for a hint of sweetness! The result is a perfectly gorgeous smoothie that will keep you 100% happy until lunch! It also doubles as an epic dessert, just saying!

  1. I’m ALL about smoothies these days. Loving this fruit combo!! The color is GORGEOUS! You know how I feel about my purples 😉

  2. I always have a much better day when I start it with a smoothie. These look so pretty. And obviously delicious.

    1. Beautiful..and very tasty…much more healthier than fried potatows..gravy eggs and buscuits..ha..maybe not as good..especially if your a country girl..but hey..if we dont take care of our bodies…who is..

  3. Banana blueberry smoothies are a new concept to me. But I love both fruits… So now it’s a must-try if I have the ingredients around! 🙂

  4. My blueberry bushes are loaded and Chobani is my go to yogurt. I see a delicious smoothie in my very near future!!

  5. Such a filling and healthful breakfast! I don’t have any chia seeds, but I do have flax seeds, which I’m hoping will be a fine substitute. Great recipe!

  6. I have been on a really big smoothie kick. I think I will have one of these for breakfast!

  7. I am totally in love with the simplicity and flavors (and photos) of this smoothie! I was playing around over on foodgawker and just couldn’t resist clicking over to check out this post because it was so pretty!

  8. Along with the idea of freezing the blueberries so the ice doesn’t have to be used, freeze the banana as well. What you get is a creamy, frozen smoothie!
