As part of our “healthier new year” goal, we’ve been blending daily smoothies in leau of a meal (usually instead of breakfast). It’s weird how this blueberry smoothie can keep you feeling full and satisfied all while giving you some serious feel good energy.

Since we welcomed our Blendtec Blender into the family, we’ve been experimenting with smoothies almost daily and we’ll be sharing all of our favorites with you. What makes this purple smoothie fantastic? I’m glad you asked. Well, first of all, it’s purple. Secondly, blueberries are a powerhouse of antioxidants.

They are known for their ninja-like ability to fight off free radicals. We also used almond milk and if you haven’t tried it, go on and give it a whirl. Trust me my peeps, it makes the smoothie velvety and adds a subtle nutty appeal. The almond milk also has Calcium, Vit E and Vit D. Most importantly this blueberry smoothie is deeee-licious.

Blueberry Smoothie Ingredients:

1 cup original almond milk (or water)
1 Tbsp chia seeds (did you know these are like a dieters dream food because they make you feel full?)
1 banana, peeled
2 oranges (or 3 clementines), peeled
2 cups frozen blueberries

Purple Smoothie

How to make blueberry smoothies: (Are you ready for this?)

1. Add everything to the blender in the order listed (1 cup almond milk, 1 Tbsp chia seeds or 1 Tbsp of flex seeds, 1 banana, 2 oranges, and 2 cups froz blueberries) and whirl to the desired consistency. If using a Blendtec, push the smoothie button and watch it go! Serve right away (if using chia seeds, it will thicken as it stands).

    Thanks for sharing, Natasha! At my house, we use the same recipe actually, except we put in other types of berries as well, not only blueberries. In addition, instead of the chia seeds, we put in walnuts. They give a creamy texture, an AWESOME flavor…and nuts don’t always taste the best unless they’re blended in with something else. In this case, you’ll be able to get the vitamins & minerals needed from nuts, while also having a tasty, well-balanced drink! Highly recommend this recipe!! Cheers!!! 😋🍹
