I’m a smoothie kind of girl. Not just any smoothie though. I am a Blueberry Banana (All Fruit) Smoothie kind of girl 😉
It has to have the right ratio of ingredients and lots of fruity flavors. The most important thing to me in a smoothie is that the fruit shines through. If there’s too much yogurt or other added ingredients, I find there’s too much going on and I don’t get that pop in my mouth – that burst of flavor – that I crave.
This Blueberry Banana Smoothie recipe is the simplest of the simple and also happens to be my absolute favorite. It contains no dairy and no ice, which means the flavor is nothing but fruit, fruit, fruit. I can’t handle too much dairy, so I was looking to make some smoothies without and discovered that a banana does a lot in lending smoothness and creaminess (much like in the Five Minute Chunky Monkey Ice Cream). It also has no added sugar because the apple juice has enough natural sweetness. The only non-fruit going in here is vanilla, which I think is a must – it gives that creamy taste and brings all the flavors together.
I and Jason drank this pretty much every day in the summer. We wanted a light snack that would cool us down and help us get our intake of fruit. You can swap out the frozen blueberries for other berries as well, which is also delicious, but the blueberry is my personal favorite. It has so much flavor and is such a gorgeous color. I make sure to always have the ingredients on hand so I can whiz one up at any time.
If you’re like me and like your smoothies to be all-fruit flavor while still being creamy and smooth then I encourage you to give this a try. And, if you want to add a scoop of yogurt nobody with the judge you for it. 😉
