Blueberry Honey Smoothie

Blueberry Honey Smoothie

I’m definitely on a blueberry kick. Last month, we posted a Berry Beer Cooler recipe for Secret Recipe Club, and today I’ve got a yummy blueberry smoothie recipe.

I love pairing blueberries with honey for smoothies, not only because the flavors really shine through, but also because it’s a much healthier option. I love the smoothies at Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Orange Julius, but they have more sugar in a single sip than you should have all day. Make ’em at home and you’ll get the same great flavors without any added sugar.

These are just perfect on a hot summer day. I love making one to take down to the beach. You could top it off with a little blueberry vodka if you wanted to be a little naughty. :) But seriously, these are so good that they don’t even need any alcohol to be downright delicious.

My favorite option for a “base” liquid is fresh-squeezed orange juice, so that’s what I used in this smoothie. However, you could use just about any kind or fruit juice or even iced tea.

I used vanilla yogurt for this recipe because that’s what I had in the house. But you could also use plain yogurt, blueberry yogurt, or even a banana in place of the yogurt in order to create the smooth texture that gives smoothies their name.

You could also add greens, like spinach or kale, to pack more nutrients in every sip. I’ve been making this green smoothie recipe a lot lately, but greens would be great in this blueberry recipe as well.

Cheers!

Blueberry Honey Smoothie

Blueberries are the perfect fruit for a refreshing summer smoothie, sweetened with honey.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup fruit juice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt (plain, vanilla, or blueberry)
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • ice

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients except ice to blender and blend until well combined. Taste and add more honey if you want a sweeter smoothie or more juice if you want to tone down the sweetness.
  2. While blending, add ice a few pieces at a time until smoothie is a thick consistency.
  3. Serve immediately in tall glasses.

Notes

You can substitute 1 banana for the yogurt. You can also use tea instead of fruit juice if you prefer a milder flavor.
