Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

Do you ever have those mornings when all you want is something to satisfy your sweet tooth? You consider running to the donut shop or the local coffee joint for that sugary pastry or drink, but you tell yourself you shouldn’t. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, after all, and it should be a healthy one, right? While I am a fan of the occasional morning confection, I’m all for finding healthy ways to satisfy the sweet cravings. And my Blueberry Muffin Smoothie does just that.Β blueberry muffin smoothie

Full of fruits, protein, healthy fats, and veggies, the Blueberry Muffin Smoothie is not only nutrient dense, but it’s also incredibly delicious! It only takes about five minutes to throw together and it’s a great on-the-go breakfast. Also, coming into the hot summer months here in Colorado, I often don’t feel like cooking, so a smoothie is a great way to beat the heat, but still get in a satisfying breakfast.

I use my Nutri Ninja Blender with Auto-IQ boost blender (find it here) and absolutely love it. I tend to use the medium or large attachments when making drinks like my Adaptogen Hot Chocolate, but stick to the smallest attachment for smoothies. It’s literally the best blender I’ve ever owned, perfect for those of us who can’t quite justify spending the money for the coveted Vitamix blenders.Β blueberry muffin smoothie

One of my favorite things about the Blueberry Muffin Smoothie, besides the fact that it legitimately tastes like a blueberry muffin, is its versatility. You can use honey if you want it a little sweeter, or leave it out to minimize your sugar intake. You can also substitute cauliflower for banana for that same reason. Adding handful(s) of fresh greens is a great way to add extra nutrients while not affecting the flavor of this sweet blend. I also add He Shou Wu to this smoothie because of its sweetness and its beauty and longevity effects! My one suggestion would be to stick with the Wild Friends sugar cookie peanut butter, as the flavor is incredible and the ingredients are super clean.Β blueberry muffin smoothie

  1. Shannon, What a great recipe! I make myself a smoothy every morning but I get tiered of of always having thee same thing. This will be great to add to my morning repitoire!

  2. Love smoothies! I have never heard of sugar cookie peanut butter! I may have to look into that. I bet this is something I could get my son to drink!

    1. You can find it on Amazon or here or I bet you could use plain peanut butter and add in some cinnamon and make sure you add in a little honey!

  3. Awesome! I have a blueberry smoothie most mornings too but it’s definitely not full of all these awesome veggies. I never thought of using cauliflower. I’m going to try it. Thanks so much for the inspiration! πŸ˜ƒ

    1. I LOVE using collagen! My skin honestly has never looked better and my nails are growing so much faster! I’m still new to the he shou wu as well, but I’ve had a lot of success with other adaptogens, so I thought I’d start incorporating it into my daily routine! Plus it has a wonderful flavor/aroma! I’m sure I’ll do another adaptogen update post in the future after I’ve given it some time to work! I just wanted to share it’s use with you all in this recipe as well! πŸ™‚

  4. What an interesting twist to smoothie! Never knew I could use cauliflower as a substitute for banana 😳! We learn each day!

    1. It’s a great, lower sugar option while still making the smoothie super creamy! I also often use steamed-then-frozen sweet potato and zucchini! Check out some of my other smoothie recipe posts for some more ideas! I’m also working on a spring-inspired smoothie recipe post so stay tuned! πŸ™‚
