Banana Blueberry Smoothies

Jump to Recipe

January 3rd!! Let's kick today off with my Banana Blueberry Smoothies which I make basically every morning for breakfast!

 

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, a mixture of my favorite seeds and some almond butter for extra protein! 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 am obsessed with this smoothie! I've been making it every day and still not getting tired of it.
    I add hemp hearts for some protein and it is delish.

  2. Do you need to grind flaxseed before adding, to get the nutritional benefit? Are flaxseeds digested if eaten whole?
