How to make a blueberry banana smoothie

Using frozen fruit makes this smoothie super thick and creamy. 

Frozen bananas are great for getting that thick ice cream like texture in smoothies. 

Frozen blueberries are also one of my favorite fruits to keep on hand for smoothies!

To make this smoothie, add the frozen bananas, frozen blueberries, almond butter, flax seed, and almond milk to a high speed blender.

Blend until thick and creamy.

I purposefully used as little liquid as possible in this smoothie, as I wanted that nice thick consistency. 

If you do not have a high powered blender, or want a thinner smoothie, add more almond milk to taste.

Do bananas go well with blueberries?

Yes!

Bananas and blueberries are the perfect match. 

Since both fruits are mildly sweet, you won’t need any added sweetener in this banana and blueberry smoothie. 

How do you thicken smoothies?

There are two ways to thicken smoothies – with ice or with frozen fruit.

Frozen bananas are the best fruit for making very thick and creamy smoothies.

Adding ice can be another way to thicken smoothies if you are using fresh fruit, but the texture won’t be quite the same.
