This easy blueberry morning smoothie is densely packed with nutrition and tastes absolutely delicious. Pour it in a cup and drink it with a (reusable) straw, or in a bowl and add your favorite smoothie bowl toppings.
This smoothie is high in Vitamin C from the blueberries, spinach, orange, peaches, and kiwi. It also contains iron, calcium, and magnesium from the spinach. A perfect start to your morning!
You can use all fresh ingredients to make this, or you can freeze all of the ingredients and meal prep it the night before. I like to cut up all of the fruit and then store it in a nutribullet cup in the freezer overnight. Then in the morning, I can just throw it in the blender, add some almond milk, and blend it. A two minute breakfast!
If you do choose to freeze all of the ingredients, you might have to use a bit more almond milk to help the fruit move around easier in the blender. When you use fresh fruit, they are already soft, so you do not need to use as much.
Blueberry Morning Smoothie
- 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup peaches
- 1/2 cup spinach
- 1/2 orange
- 1 kiwi
- almond milk add more or less, depending on how thick you want your smoothie
- In a high speed blender, combine all of your ingredients and blend until you get a smooth consistency.
- Add more almond milk if you prefer a more liquid smoothie, or less if you prefer it thick. I usually add about 1/2 – 1 cup.
I love having fun with decorating my smoothies, like I did with the bananas in this recipe. If you want to do this yourself, place your cup in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Slice your bananas in the thinnest slices you can. The thinner and lighter the slices are, the less likely they are to slide off. Slowly and gently slide the banana slices on the side of the cup until you get them where you want them. Also be careful when you pour your smoothie in the cup. This process is actually not as tricky as it looks, and the fruit tends to stick pretty well. It also looks really pretty with kiwi.
