Blueberry Banana Blast Smoothie

Share This:

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!

  3. Hello. I was diagnosed as pre diabetic a couple of years ago, so I gave up bananas and pineapple since they are high on the glycemic index. Is there another fruit that could be substituted? Also, is it possible to make a good peanut butter smoothie that’s lower in fat and sugar? thank you

    • Hi Carolyn! Yes absolutely – you can substitute apple or pear (or both) for the bananas/pineapple. You can also just use a mix of berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries) instead of the banana/pineapple. The apple/pear combo will make the smoothie more sweet than the berries combo – so go with whatever one you prefer! For a peanut butter smoothie, try this recipe but instead of the banana, use apple. And if you really want to cut the fat down, you can use 2 tbsp peanut butter powder instead of 1 tbsp peanut butter! Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

  4. Wow I absolutely love your recipes and blog. Looks yummy ! I have been following your Baby Food Recipes and Formula suggestion. Thanks aton 🙂

    I have been on green juices for a month now and all I can say is this comes as a real treat!
    Thanks again!
