New year, new you, new smoothie recipe!  You didn’t think I’d let January get by without posting a smoothie, did ya?  It’s almost an obligation as a food blogger to post a smoothie because that’s what people are looking for this time of year.  

I love easy options like my orange cream smoothie and kale smoothie, but this time of year I always begin to miss blueberries in a big way.

Fresh blueberries are very expensive and extremely tart this time of year, so I utilized frozen berries in this ultra creamy Blueberry Banana Smoothie.

It’s refreshing, delicious and really satisfied my blueberry cravings!

Can fresh blueberries be used?

Fresh or frozen blueberries may be used in this recipe. If using fresh, make sure the bananas or frozen for a thicker, frostier smoothie.

Can quick oats be used?

Quick oats or old fashioned rolled oats may be used in this recipe.

How can smoothies be thickened?

Frozen fruit is a great way to thicken smoothies. I love freezing overripe bananas to add to smoothies for body and creaminess. Adding Greek yogurt or non-dairy yogurt is another way to make smoothies thicker and more satisfying. Ice is also a good thickener, but it can also result in a watered down flavor.
