The Bachelor is on tonight, and Arie is going on three more one on one dates. I lost some interest in this season when Bekah M and Tia went home. But, the drama continues. Are you ready?
It’s going to be a late night, and this creamy blueberry banana smoothie is on the list for breakfast tomorrow.
Why? It’s very hydrating and replenishing. And, I’m going to need it after the bellini’s tonight.
Did you buy a Vitamix? Mine is clean and ready for tomorrow.
How to make a creamy blueberry banana smoothie
Grab a high powered blender and these ingredients and let’s jam. You’ll be drinking a cold drink in 5 minutes.
I tried this recipe with fresh blueberries, and it just wasn’t cold enough. So, let’s both use frozen blueberries. And, I find that they are cheaper and easier to find year round.
Frozen Banana – do ahead
Just peel and slice bananas and then freeze the bananas in a freezer safe container. Take the extra time to slice each banana. You don’t want the banana to break the blender. And, you want the smoothie to blend easily.
We are almost there.
Arbonne provides some of my favorite nutrition products. And, the vanilla protein shake mix is my standard mix in my smoothies. It’s vegan protein derived from peas, cranberries, and rice. It provides amino acids to support muscle repair. It’s very allergy friendly and free from gluten, dairy, soy, whey, and GMO’s. It’s the best vegan protein mix on the market.
Haven’t heard of Arbonne? Check out Arbonne or email me at [email protected]. I would love to chat.
Did you buy a Vitamix or a new blender last week?
You can purchase a Vitamix from William Sonoma. But, I have found that Amazon provides more choices and better prices.
Check out this Vitamix on Amazon. And, let me know your thoughts. I want to see what you buy.

I prefer to use crushed ice, a frozen banana, and frozen blueberries which yields a colder smoothie. I peel and slice the banana before freezing, and I freeze the bananas at least 24 hours ahead of time. Slicing the banana helps to ensure the smoothie blends efficiently.
I used a dry measuring cup for the ice and frozen blueberries. I used a liquid measuring cup for the milk.
