Banana And Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

The banana and blueberry smoothie recipe is full of immune-system boosting vitamins and minerals. The frozen blueberries make it a healthy and refreshing treat throughout the year.

When the outcome should be at room temperature like for a healthy breakfast substitute, thaw the berries before blending. Adding oats or seeds to the fruits results in a drink that quenches hunger and provides more sustenance for longer. For variation add a quarter teaspoon of vanilla essence.

The frozen version without oats or seeds makes an exceptional dessert.

It is in the cooks' hands what base liquid to add. Blueberries work well with full cream milk or yogurt as well as with kefir. The liquid base determines how creamy the smoothie tastes.

By choosing a nut-milk, soy-milk or rice-milk, the smoothie easily supports a vegan diet. The amount of liquid in relation to fruit decides on the runniness of the drink.
