Blueberry smoothie isn’t bad to start your day with, blended food is easier for your body to digest which allows your body to release energy more quickly after consumption. Apart from that, vegetables and fruits are packed with vital nutrients necessary for your body.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How Do You Freeze Your Blueberries For Smoothies?

To freeze your blueberries for the smoothie, rinse and chop fresh fruits into small pieces. Pat them dry then arrange, in a layer, on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Then slide the prepared baking sheet into the freezer and freeze until hard(about 3 hours). The same method goes for your bananas in this recipe.

2. Can I Use Fresh Blueberries Instead Of Frozen For This Recipe?

Yes, you can use fresh blueberries instead of frozen blueberries and it will still work perfectly. Fresh berries will just make the smoothie thickens as it sits a bit more than usual since they naturally have pectin. Pectin is a thickener and freezing the berries can reduce the natural jelling effect. This is why I love using frozen blueberries cause it doesn’t happen as often when it is frozen.

3. How Do I Serve My Blueberries Smoothie?

Serve your blueberry smoothie in a blueberry smoothie bowl by adding a few cubes of ice and additional frozen blueberries to make it thick. Pour into a bowl and add your favorite toppings such as banana slices, blueberries, or granola will make a nice topping.

4. How Can I Store My Blueberry Smoothie?

You can store your blueberry smoothie in a fridge, well covered and it can last up to a day. You can as well freeze them in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
