Recipe: My Favorite Blueberry Smoothie

I have been making this berry smoothie for YEARS since high school! It is easy, quick, and so refreshing and tasty~ Please try!

Our freezer is FULL of frozen fruit and frozen fruit is the SECRET! Especially frozen bananas – they make the smoothies so cold and creamy. Whenever my favorite smoothie fruits are on sale (banana, blueberries, or strawberries), my parents buy sooooo much because we either eat them fresh or package them in the freezer once they’ve peaked ripeness (making the smoothies extra sweet!).

If you don’t have frozen fruit, just add extra cubes of ice to make the smoothie cold.


+ 1/2 or 1 Frozen Banana
+ 3 handfuls of blueberries and/or strawberries
+ 1 large tablespoon of oats
+ ~1/4 cup of apple juice
+ 3-4 cubes of ice (optional)



  1. Microwave the banana (you can leave the peel on) for ~30 seconds. This softens the banana so (1) you can peel and (2) it makes the smoothie texture soooo creamy
  2. Add all the ingredients into the blender, blend, and enjoy!!!

Tips for Freezing Fruit:

  1. Buy on SALE! We buy crates of blueberries/strawberries at swap meets 🙂
  2. Freeze once they’re super ripe! (but before they go bad)
  3. You can freeze the bananas whole and in their peel
  4. Wash/cut your berries and de-stem them before putting it in the freezer. For example once strawberries are frozen, they become rock solid like ice so you can’t really cut them or pull the leaves off
