A quick and healthy creamy blueberry smoothie, perfect for hot summer afternoons!
Annnnnnd we’re back. Whew. After a long, much needed break this weekend, we’re back to smoothies, tacos, and cupcakes. Oh man, shouldn’t have said that. Where’s a chocolate cupcake when you need one??
One of my very top-fav things about summertime is the berries. Strawberries, blackberries, and those beautiful blueberries. And my two preferred ways to eat them are piled high atop a mountain of greek yogurt, or in a cool and creamy smoothie.
On a hot summer day there’s really nothing that satisfies and cools you off quite like a smoothie. In this case, it’s a blueberry smoothie. Nice n’ creamy and that secret ingredient – avocados! Avocados are healthy right?! And that makes me personally feel a bit better when I have a smoothie for breakfast.
- 1 avocado, diced
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- 6 ounces blueberry greek yogurt (about 1/2 cup)
- 1-2 cups milk or water (I used almond milk)
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla
- sweetener to taste
- Add 1 cup of milk and remaining ingredients to a blender. Puree until smooth. Add milk 1/4 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached.
