Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

Craving a blueberry muffin? While you could make some OR forget the oven (it is starting to get to be summer after all 😉 ) and break out your blender instead. Made with a few basic ingredients, the only planning ahead you’ll need to do it put some Greek yogurt in the freezer for an hour – the perfect amount of time to get a workout in, get ready in the morning, or catch up on some Game of Thrones.

Making Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

In my opinion, the best smoothies are thick and can be eaten with a spoon. Frozen bananas are usually my go-to ingredient for making a thick and creamy drink, but my dad, who is allergic to bananas, recently asked what he could substitute in for the banana. Before I could answer, Bry pipped in with the idea of freezing Greek yogurt – looks like I’ve taught him well 😉 All you need is about an hour in the freezer (may take longer or shorter depending on how cold your freezer is) and you will be ready to start blending!

Smoothie Prep

While frozen Greek yogurt is the primary thickener for this smoothie, I also used frozen blueberries and oatmeal to make sure the consistency was just right. Yup, oatmeal. Oats are a great ingredient in a smoothie not just for a nutrition and thickening boost, but also for flavor, The oats are what truly give this smoothie that “muffin” taste. Of course the cinnamon and vanilla extract don’t hurt either.Blueberry Muffin Smoothie 2

With the warmer months finally here, this smoothie is a refreshing, no-oven-required way to enjoy the blueberry muffin taste that you love. So here’s a toast to keeping your kitchen from getting too toasty this summer!

      Thank you 🙂 Agreed – I usually combine other fruits in my smoothies and had forgotten how pretty blueberries are on their own. Hope you enjoy!

    as an RD2Be, I love finding other RDs out there! too funny because as a student athlete, I used to have them make me a smoothie with all of these ingredients (except with soy milk), and I coined it the blueberry muffin smoothie there 🙂

    xo,
