A blueberry banana smoothie is a delicious and classic flavor combination that we just can’t get enough of! Frozen blueberries and bananas are so affordable and readily available all year round, so you can always count on a yummy blueberry smoothie.

Frozen vs. Fresh Blueberries

We generally like to buy frozen blueberries over fresh, because they are usually cheaper. However, if fresh blueberries are on sale at the grocery store or if you go blueberry picking, you can learn how to freeze blueberries in this post.

This blueberry smoothie recipe is a healthy breakfast or snack option because it uses real ingredients and no added sugar.

We do not typically use ice in our smoothies because we use frozen fruit. Frozen fruit gives smoothies a thicker consistency that we just love.

If you only have fresh fruit, that we would suggest using ice to get that frozen fruit smoothie texture.

If you’re looking for another fruit to add to your smoothie, we suggest banana (which is what this recipe calls for). Other fruit that taste good with blueberries are:

  • Strawberries
  • Pineapple
  • Mango
