Use fresh or frozen blueberries to create this creamy Blueberry Spinach Smoothie packed full of flavor and antioxidants. It’s the perfect healthy drink for a summer morning.
How to Make a Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
Nothing tastes quite as good as plump, juicy blueberries when they’re freshly picked. Unfortunately, we don’t have many local places where we can pick blueberries, so when I find them fresh, we buy huge batches to freeze for later. So whether you’re using fresh ones or frozen berries, both work well in this blueberry spinach smoothie.
The best blueberries I’ve ever eaten in my life came from a former coworker’s blueberry patches. They were huge, and quite honestly, perfection. Even my husband loved them, and he’s not a fan of blueberries at all. Can you imagine?
But anyway, you’re here for the smoothie recipe, right? Right.
If you’re using frozen berries, I’d add them after the yogurt. Otherwise, you’re good to go with tossing everything in the blender and letting it all go at once.
If you like your smoothies thick and don’t have frozen berries, add a handful of ice cubes to thicken it up. Works like a charm.
