Today friends, I bring you this blueberry almond butter smoothie recipe, which is quite *possibly* my favourite smoothie of them all. It’s sweet and nutty, delightfully creamy, and made with just 5 healthy ingredients!

This blueberry smoothie is perfect to make for breakfast, a pre- or post-workout snack, or even for a healthy dessert! I make this blueberry breakfast smoothie at least twice a week. No kidding.

ingredients for blueberry almond butter smoothie

I use frozen blueberries in this smoothie a) to achieve a creamy texture and b) because they are cheaper. I love wild blueberries (if you are in the UK, you can buy them from Lidl) but regular frozen blueberries work just as well in this smoothie.

If you’re a blueberry fanatic like me you’ll love my blueberry muffins and lemon blueberry baked oats too!

How to make blueberry almond butter smoothie

To make this simple smoothie, add your frozen blueberries, ripe spotty banana, almond butter, protein powder and soy milk to a high speed blender (photo 1), and blend until creamy (photo 2).

Then simply pour into your favourite glass (photo 3) and enjoy! And try not to spill it on your brand new white t-shirt. Not that I did that but you know, just friendly advice.

FAQ

What can I use instead of bananas?

Banana makes this smoothie extra creamy and adds sweetness. If you don’t like banana, you can swap for fresh or frozen mango – you may need to also add 1 tsp of honey if the smoothie is not sweet enough.

Can I use peanut butter instead of almond?

Yes, but almond is extra tasty 😉 you can even make your own at home!

Which protein powder is best for smoothies?

Most protein powders blend nicely into smoothies, but if your smoothie has a lot of fruit it’s a good idea to use an unflavoured protein powder to avoid the smoothie becoming too sweet. I like the unflavoured soy protein isolate from Bulk powders.

You can also omit the protein powder if you prefer.

Tips for making perfect smoothies:

  1. Use a high speed blender for the best texture. It really pays to invest in a good blender if you are making smoothies on the regular. I love my Vitamix and couldn’t live without it now!
  2. Add the ingredients in the right order. You’ll want to put the frozen ingredients at the top of the blender for easy blending.
  3. If you think it’s blended, blend for 30 seconds more. This is my top tip for making sure your smoothies are lump-free!

And there you have it! My favourite smoothie recipe which I’m sure is soon to be your favourite too.
