Recipe Variations And Smoothie Notes

We have a list of some alternative ingredients you can use in this smoothie:

  • The Berries: If you don’t have blueberries, you can use raspberries, blackberries, or strawberries. Just make sure they are frozen!
  • No Protein  Powder: If you are avoiding protein powder, increase the yogurt to 1 cup instead of 1/2 cup, and reduce the almond milk to 1/4 cup.
  • Boost With Greens: Throw a handful of kale or baby spinach for extra nutrients without impacting the flavor of the smoothie!
  • No Oats: Swap the oats for chia or flaxseeds. I once tried hemp hearts, and they also worked well, but they are a bit more aromatic and have a stronger flavor.
  • Make It Vegan: For a vegan smoothie, use vegan yogurt, such as coconut yogurt, and ensure your protein powder is vegan-friendly.

Yes, you can use fresh blueberries, though frozen ones help give the smoothie a thicker, more refreshing texture. If using fresh, consider adding a few ice cubes to achieve the desired consistency.

How Can I Store Leftovers Of This Blueberry Smoothie?

Smoothie leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Because of the ingredients, it's best enjoyed fresh, but you can shake or stir it well before drinking if it separates.
