#1. Add Yogurt

If you are vegan, choose a vegan alternative, if not, adding 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt adds more creaminess and protein to your drink.

It completes this smoothie further, especially as a breakfast.

#2. Use a Different Berry

If you don’t have blueberries, or simply dislike them, try another berry.

I have tested raspberries and blackberries, and they both worked wonderfully in the smoothie.

#3. Add Some Protein

I tested adding a scoop of vanilla protein powder, and I found it worked pretty well.

It boosted the protein content of this blueberry oatmeal smoothie with an extra 23g of protein!

If you want to keep it vegan, simply use a vegan protein powder. There are plenty of choices.

Smoothie Questions From The Community

My smoothie community on TikTok loved this pear and blueberry smoothie. 

Some of the people had some questions regarding the recipe, which I am going to answer here.

If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact me!

Is The Smoothie Good For Weight Loss?

The smoothie can be a part of a weight loss diet. However, drinking this smoothie alone won't result in weight loss, you have to ensure you consume less food throughout the day and be more physically active.

Can I Use Fresh Blueberries Instead Of Frozen?

If you don't frozen blueberries, don't worry, you can absolutely use fresh blueberries. However, do note that the smoothie will not come out as thick and refreshing. I suggest you half the amount of liquid if you are using fresh blueberries.

Can I Use Coconut Milk Instead Of Almond Milk?

Yes, coconut milk is another great base for the smoothie. Do note that coconut milk from a can can be quite fatty and high calorie. If you don't mind the calories, then definitely use coconut milk!
