  3. Convenient and Quick to Prepare: It offers all the flavors of a blueberry muffin without the baking time. This smoothie can be whipped up in just a few minutes, perfect for busy mornings or as a quick snack.
  4. Healthier Alternative: For those who are health-conscious but crave something sweet, this smoothie is an excellent alternative. It’s lower in calories and fat compared to a traditional muffin and adds nutritional benefits such as fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
  5. Great for Kids and Adults Alike: Its sweet, creamy texture and rich flavor make it appealing to both kids and adults, making it a family-friendly option.

Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes

You can swap ingredients and even add additional ingredients should you want to!

You can experiment on your own or try some of my suggestions below:

  • Almond Extract: I once added 1-2 drops of almond extract to my smoothie and it somehow made it taste even closer to a real blueberry muffin. Try it!
  • Add Some Walnuts: Many blueberry muffin recipes contain walnuts. To add this element, swap the peanut butter for a handful of walnuts. Make sure you blend thoroughly. 
  • Make It Even Healthier: Fold in a handful of spinach and a tablespoon of chia seeds without impacting the flavor!
  • Extra Protein: Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder for more protein per serving.
  • Make It Vegan: Swap the Greek yogurt for coconut yogurt.

Recipe Equipment:

I have made this smoothie 6 times since developing the recipe. 

I haven’t had the chance to test it with all my blenders and models, but I have tested it with the following:

  1. Vitamix Blender Explorian
  2. Nutribullet 900 Series
  3. AmzChef Blender
  4. Ninja Blender
  5. Philips Blender 3000 Series
  6. Tefal Blender

If you own any of the blenders listed above, rest assured, this recipe works with them perfectly!

My Top Tips For Making The Perfect Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

  • Blend Long Enough: You want an ultra-creamy consistency for the most enjoyable drinking experience. Blend for a minimum of 3-4 minutes.
  • Use Frozen Blueberries: I have tried making this smoothie with fresh blueberries, and trust me, it’s no as tasty as with frozen blueberries.
  • Add Soft Ingredients First: If using a regular blender where the blades are at the bottom, add soft ingredients first (yogurt, peanut butter, etc).
