Blueberry Banana Blast Smoothie

Two blueberry smoothie present in a litlle milk bottle with blue straw

Summer is the perfect time for smoothies. I remember when I was a kid, my mom would make strawberry-banana “milkshake desserts” in the summer.

I had no idea that they were just strawberries, bananas, a bit of plain yogurt, and ice – no milk or sugar actually involved! But thanks to the creaminess from the yogurt and sweetness from the banana, it tasted just like a milkshake.

This recipe takes inspiration from my mom’s healthy tricks from my childhood. This smoothie packs an antioxidant punch from the frozen wild blueberries and spinach (or kale – your choice!), has natural sweetness from the bananas and pineapple, and added protein from some plain Greek yogurt.

You can enjoy it as a light breakfast, healthy dessert or post-workout snack for under 200 calories!

  1. Yum, sounds delicious! I love smoothies. I always feel like they are such a treat because I don’t eat/make them very often. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    • Aw thanks so much Paige! Smoothies are totally a treat for me too — I love that they feel like a shake when you’re drinking them (because smoothies are creamy and sweet) but they are actually healthy for you!

  2. We were having our extended family over last weekend. There were lots of various foods – meat and vegetarian, too. We made these smoothies as one of the desserts. They went down better than anything else. Probably because it’s a drink and on hot days like now it’s simply unbeatable. I am making them now almost every day, such a treat!
