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!

    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! 🙂

  6. Monika

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

  7. Lori @ Foxes Love Lemons

    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!

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

    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!

  22. Amy

    Random question, but….where is that straw from? I like using straws for smoothies, but I can’t bring myself to use disposable straws at home.

  23. Gerry

    I absolutely love this smoothie!! I also throw in kale or spinach just for the extra nutrition. You can’t taste it, and I feel I’m feeding my fifty something year old body something really good. Thank you for a wonderful smoothie recipe!!

  24. Lindsay Cotter

    I would live to get my day started with this delicious smoothie! Love the color and the how easy it is to make!

  25. sassygirl

    so freezing the bloobs are enough
    to make it creamy and thick…the banana doesn’t need freezing?
    love that color!
    thnx!

    • Gaby

      nope – don’t need to freeze the banana! the blueberries are enough 🙂 enjoy!

    This recipe”s a keeper! I didn’t have any almond milk so, I used unsweetened coconut milk instead. Increased the flax and chia seeds to 1 tbsp each. Added a little bit of vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg to season. So yummy!

    I’ve been making this smoothie minus the almond butter for about a month now and I love it! Here I thought I was doing something “different” haha. Sometimes I add a tbsp of peanut butter to it as well.

  37. Kelsey

    Hi Gaby,
    I’ve had this a bunch, it’s amazing. I’ve taken a break from smoothie because my roommate isn’t up in time before I leave for work for me to make them…I’m wondering if in your opinion it would work if I made it the night before and placed it in an air tight container (probably a mason jar) and then had it the next morning? Or would it separate? Any thoughts you have would be awesome, thank you!!

    • Gaby

      Hey!! I’ve done that before and I’ll be totally honest – it’s not as good. It separates a little but that’s fixable when you stir it. The reason I don’t love it is because it’s not ice cold and just tastes a little different 🙂 I wonder what would happen if you froze it the night before and then ate it like ice cream the next morning!

  38. Meghan

    I just made this smoothie and I used blueberries that were fresh not frozen. The smoothie is actually like a brown now… Not as pretty. I will have to try it with frozen next time!

  39. What to Eat in February

    […] Blueberry Banana Smoothies: These smoothies look delicious! There isn’t any protein in them so pair them with some eggs or throw a scoop of your favorite protein powder in there to keep you feeling fuller longer! […]

  40. Kermit

    Sounds like a tasty recipe and one I will definitely be trying. On a side not, it is possible to freeze your smoothie for later consumption. I use a ball glass jar and make sure to leave plenty of space in the jar for expansion.

  41. Melanie

    Going to try this recipe! Love that you can get the ingredients at TJs! Question, Do you happen to know the nutritional value, like how much protein/fiber are in these smoothies? Thank you!

  42. MeghanH

    This is my favorite smoothie ever…… I make this so much, I am doing to become a blueberry. Thanks Gaby!
