Blueberry Power Smoothie

I’ve been obsessed with this Blueberry Power Smoothie ever since we got a Ninja blender a few years back. It’s similar to one of the recipes that came with the blender. Every time the weather finally warms up, it sounds so good!

All you need is five ingredients:

  • banana
  • milk
  • protein powder
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • frozen blueberries

If you do not have protein powder you can certainly omit that, but it does add a boost of nutrients if you’re enjoying this as a filling snack.

It’s perfect for a post workout protein boost. I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk because that’s just what we always have in the fridge. The original recipe calls for light unsweetened coconut milk. Any dairy or non-dairy milk would work great.

I have never tried making this with fresh blueberries. I think frozen is the way to go, it helps give it the icy texture that it needs. Make sure they are also unsweetened as well. I use Wyman’s frozen blueberries, you can find them in most grocery stores.

If you think the unsweetened cocoa powder seems odd…trust me, it’s a must! It adds a hint of chocolate flavor that is super unexpected, but totally makes the smoothie.

Enjoy this blueberry power smoothie for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a snack! Would be super cute poured into little sipper shot glasses for a brunch spread. Enjoy!
