Blueberry Banana Almond Smoothie
Blueberry Banana Almond Smoothie recipe made with almond milk and sweet blueberries is a healthy breakfast alternative that tastes amazing!
I hope everyone in the U.S. had a nice long Labor Day weekend full of fabulous eats and not too much “labor”. What did you do? My hubby and I actually spent the majority of the weekend working outside on our patio. All work and no play for us this holiday weekend! I can at least see a light at the end of the tunnel now and can’t wait to post a picture of the finished product. I see a lot of campfires on the new patio in our near future!
If you ate like I did this Labor Day weekend, then you are probably looking for something light and healthy to counteract all of the damage you’ve done to your body. At least I am! This Blueberry Banana Almond Smoothie is one of my favorite smoothies to date and it’s probably mostly due to the fact that I love the color of it. Yes, I rank my favorite foods on color occasionally. The amazing flavor didn’t hurt, though. I love the hint of almond flavor with the blueberries and the creaminess that the banana and Greek yogurt gave it. Definitely try this sometime.
Here are a few of my other favorites smoothie recipes (all of these choices are dairy free!)
Watermelon Strawberry Banana Smoothie
- 1 medium banana
- ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ½ cup plain unsweetened almond milk (or regular milk)
- ⅔ cup frozen blueberries
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- ½ cup ice
- Put everything together in the blender and blend until smooth.
I love blueberry smoothie. I have never used almond milk/butter before but I love the idea. Great recipe Ashley. Have a great week!
I love the slight almond flavor in smoothies! Thanks, Anne!
Love this recipe and idea, Ashley!! Yet another great use for some blueberries, thank you for sharing and wishing you a wonderful week 🙂
Thanks, Dan! You too!
I love adding almond milk and/or almond butter to smoothies! I love the color of this beautiful smoothie- looks great! Glad you had a productive weekend too!
Thank you, wonderful aunt of mine! You’d love this!
I love smoothies, I love blueberries, this is just perfect for my afternoon pick me up!
Blueberries are my favorite fruit to use in smoothies 🙂
I could always use something light to snack on!
You’ll love this then!
I love your smoothie recipes — light, flavorful, and satisfying (: I actually had a very labor-intensive weekend as well, working full shifts at the lab where I do research! I did, however, find time to make yummy desserts to celebrate with friends and family. This smoothie would be the perfect counterbalance to my rich desserts!
As long as you found time for delicious desserts, that’s all that matters 😉
Mmm, I need this smoothie 😀
Delicious blueberry flavour!

Congrats, can’t wait to see pictures of your patio! This smoothie looks so pretty and delicious!
Thanks, Ruby! I’ll definitely post pictures once it’s done.
I am always on the find for new smoothie ideas. I do get to add peanut butter in a lot of my smoothies but I think I shall try almond butter instead to change things around. Great colors 🙂
I’m sure this would be good with peanut butter too!
This looks awesome! I love the color!
Thanks! Me too!
Love blueberries in smoothies!
I love the way this looks. I may have to try this in the morning especially since I have all the ingredients at hand. Sounds so refreshing. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Thank YOU for commenting, Vicki! 🙂 Hope you try it and love it!
I have never thought about adding nut butter to a smoothie. That is a great idea especially since almond butter is my favorite!
It’s my favorite too! Thanks for coming by Kammie 🙂
I have been eating smoothies for breakfast lately and this is a must try!
Our labor day weekend was spent much the same as yours. Working. In fact, our bathroom is still tore up! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, Kendra!

I love almonds and love the sound of the almonds in this smoothie. I only got a blender less than a year ago – I need to start using it for smoothies like this!
The almond flavor MAKES this smoothie!
