This blueberry smoothie has an amazing combination of flavors coming through with the taste of blueberries followed by fresh orange and then hints of maple and vanilla. It only takes a few minutes from blender to glass. If you’re feeling fancy, grab a couple of mint leaves and fresh blueberries for a garnish.
I’ve also made a blackberry smoothie that you might like!
- plain Greek yogurt – I like to go for the full 10% M.F. creamy Greek yogurt but feel free to choose low fat.
- maple syrup – Just to add a touch of sweetness and a hint of maple flavor.
- vanilla extract
- navel orange – The fresh orange flavor works very well with the blueberries and vanilla. It reminds me of having a blueberry-flavored Orange Julius.
- frozen blueberries
- bananas – sliced and frozen
