Banana blueberry smoothies are one of our favorite breakfasts and snacks. They are delicious, nutritious and so easy to make. My kids go crazy for these smoothies! I really wish I had known about making smoothies sooner, but for the past few months they have become a staple around our home.
To make a banana-blueberry smoothie you will need one banana, a handful of blueberries, honey, and yogurt. You will also need a liquid of some sort. I like to add orange juice, but was out today so I added a little bit of milk. I usually use frozen fruit. If you are using fresh fruit you will need to add some ice, too.
A few tips: My kids usually only eat half of a banana at a time, so I will cut the banana in half and freeze them in Ziplocks. The honey below is the best honey I have ever had. It’s raw, local honey that we buy at our Farmer’s Co-Op. It’s delicious. You can use a flavored yogurt and omit the honey.
All you do is put one whole banana in the blender. I add about four or five generous tablespoons of yogurt, a tablespoon or two of honey, a handful of blueberries, and about a half cup of juice or milk. Just whirl it all together and pour in glasses.
