Makes: 48 ounces
This creamy banana blueberry smoothie is high in protein and fiber. And, it's made with only five ingredients and tastes icy and thick. The recipe yields enough for 2-4 servings and totals 48 ounces. I prefer to use Arbonne Protein Shake Mix which is a vegan plant-based protein. But, I have tried this recipe with other vanilla protein mixes, and it yields a flavorful smoothie.
Tablespoons Arbonne Vanilla Protein Shake Mix, (or other protein mix)
1 ½ cups
unsweetened unflavored almond milk
cups fresh or frozen blueberries
Place ingredients in the blender in the following order: ice, frozen banana, protein powder, almond milk, and blueberries. Blend all ingredients in a blender on high, until creamy and smooth, about 1 minute.
I prefer to use crushed ice and a frozen banana which yields a colder smoothie. I peel and slice the banana before freezing, and I freeze the bananas at least 24 hours ahead of time. Slicing the banana helps to ensure the smoothie blends efficiently.
