Why drink fruit smoothies?

Mornings can be super hectic on any given day, and breakfast choices can be tough. Sugary sweet cereals and breakfast pastries are quick, but they’re loaded with sugar and usually artificial colors.

This lemon blueberry smoothie is the perfect way to get the day started with fresh fruit, a bit of hidden spinach, no refined sugars, and a probiotic boost of kefir! This fruit smoothie is brain food at its best. Who wouldn’t want to start their day with a smoothie loaded with good-for-you ingredients?

As a gardener, I love to use fresh produce from my garden and the grocery store to create smoothies. Since my family isn’t too interested in the green smoothies at this point, I lean toward smoothies loaded with fresh (or frozen) berries, like my Greek Yogurt Strawberry Smoothie. Berries are naturally low in sugar, and they are chock full of antioxidants.

And since we freeze blueberries from our own bushes, this smoothie is always a possibility! Learn how to freeze fresh blueberries (homegrown or store bought) here.

Lemon Blueberry Smoothie Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 banana fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1/3 cup plain kefir or swap 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Splash of vanilla extract

How to make a blueberry smoothie

  1. First, wash spinach and blueberries (especially if you froze them before they were washed.)
  2. Add blueberries, spinach, and banana to blender. Follow with milk, kefir (or yogurt, if using), lemon juice, and honey.

3. Blend until all ingredients are smooth. (I love my Ninja Blender for a super smooth finish!)

4. Finally, pour smoothie into a glass, add a straw, and enjoy!

Lemon blueberry smoothie variations

  • Use vanilla yogurt instead of plain greek yogurt or kefir. (Omit the honey if you do this, since vanilla yogurt is sweetened.)
  • Add in a tablespoon of chia seeds for a nutritional boost.
  • For a vegan and dairy-free option, use almond/cashew milk and coconut milk yogurt.
  • Swap out the blueberries for your favorite type of berry or whatever you have in the freezer.

How to serve fruit smoothies

Serve your berry smoothie in a glass bottle or cup so you can see the beautiful color while you enjoy the amazing flavor! A thick milkshake straw works best for drinking smoothies. And if you want to be extra fancy, add a mint sprig to the top and share your blueberry smoothie with a friend!
