Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Tips for this banana berry smoothie:

  • Freeze a couple of bananas cut in half ahead of time (maybe the night before) so you can make more than one of these if you want. They are good!
  • Put all ingredients into a blender and pulse until the smoothie is well blended.

Substitutions:

  • You can use vanilla yogurt in place of plain. Be sure it’s Greek style.
  • You can put ice cubes into the smoothie if you would like it to be a thicker consistency.
  • Any milk can be used to replace coconut milk.
  • You can use whatever your favorite protein powder is. We used Whey Protein.
  • Toss in either ground flaxseed or add more chia seed to boost breast milk production.

Blueberry Banana Smoothie
Richly flavored with banana, frozen blueberries and Greek Yogurt. Blueberry banana Smoothie is a great breakfast.

A note on Lactose in this recipe:

This recipe contains Greek Yogurt. This is more digestible form of yogurt since it is strained. Straining out the whey from yogurt also removes some of the lactose.

We make our own Greek Yogurt. If you do make your own yogurt you can strain out almost all of the whey.

Straining Greek Yogurt heavily until it is almost a cottage cheese consistency results in a very mild luscious yogurt. Making your own Greek Yogurt in credibly simple to do and saves you TONS of money too.

So this Yogurt smoothie is much more digestible for Lactose sensitive people. Give this recipe a try if dairy bothers you but Greek yogurt doesn’t.

If you are INTOLERANT of lactose the Greek Yogurt and this recipe may cause you some gastric trouble.

I have been making banana blueberry smoothies for years I'm 70 my blood pressure is usually 172 /78 . Or in that range. My cardiologist is always surprised. I tell him what I do. He says whatever you're doing keep doing it your heart is strong blood pressure is beyond excellent like that of a teenager's. I make mine. I have a large blender so I make a lot usually quart and a half. I use unsweetened almond milk about 3 to 4 cups. Two bananas 2 bananas.. cup and a half of blueberries. And here's what makes it very delicious should I use 100% all natural peanut butter. Nothing else. I used two huge heaping tablespoons of this chunky peanut butter. Now that's what makes it the blueberries peanut butter and bananas. Try this I guarantee you'll love it.
