How To Make A Banana and Blueberry Smoothie
The ingredients below are to make one serving of banana and blueberry smoothie. To serve more, simply double, triple etc the amounts.
Ingredients Needed For Banana and Blueberry Smoothie
- 1 handful of blueberries (approx. 80g)
- 1 small ripe banana, sliced
- 250ml almond milk
- 3 or 4 ice cubes (unless using frozen ingredients)
These are the base ingredients, feel free to add in some extras such as yoghurt, honey, cinnamon, nut butter or a protein powder.
Fresh Vs Frozen Ingredients In A Smoothie
I tend to keep some frozen blueberries in the freezer – they are really handy to have on standby for popping into smoothies, or for mixing in when making overnight oats.
You can also use frozen banana slices – either packaged ones bought from the frozen aisle of the supermarket, or, you can easily freeze your own bananas.
If you are using only fresh ingredients, or you want your smoothie extra cold and a little thicker, add in a few ice cubes.

What Liquid Can I Use To Make This Smoothie?
I have used almond milk but you can substitute this with many other liquids.
Try any of the following;
- Cashew milk or any other milk variety
- Coconut water
- Juice (apple works well)
- Plain water – you may want to add some extra flavour if using plain water, try some cinnamon or 1tsp of honey
Measure out the almond milk (about 250ml should give a good consistency).
Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth.
Check the consistency of the smoothie and add a little more liquid if required.
