Healthy Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie
A quick recipe I thought up while trying to decide what to eat for breakfast. Great if you are trying to figure out what to do with those blueberries in the fridge or freezer! Also great on-the-go! Delicious and includes many foods that are a great way to start your day! Many of the ingredients, except for the blueberries and yogurt, are optional and vary depending on your own taste. I love cinnamon and a thick, super-cold smoothie. This recipe is super versatile, and you can change it depending on dietary needs or personal preference. Have fun with it!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 1 servings
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon white sugar or to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon or to taste
- 3 ice cubes
- Blend blueberries, yogurt, orange juice, sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together in a blender on low speed for 30 seconds; increase speed to high and blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add ice and blend on high until smooth, about 1 minute more.
If you want it less thick, add less ice. If you want it less cold, add less ice. I do not recommend using regular yogurt, because it will make the smoothie super watery. If you want it sweeter, try adding more orange juice first. If that doesn't do it, add another tablespoon of sugar or sweetener. If you don't like vanilla, don't add it!
