How to Make a Blueberry Banana Smoothie

This recipe will be a family favorite because it is one-and-done! Make sure all the ingredients are ready to go, i.e., bananas sliced, greens chopped.

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

(yep, 1 instruction, GO!) We love the Vitamix for smoothies (and make amazing soups in it too). If you have a bullet blender, split the ingredients between 2 blender cups and you’re set!

If the smoothie is too thick, feel add a little extra milk, water, or juice to thin it out a bit.

If it is too thin, add more yogurt or nut butter.
