Super Healthy Blueberry Smoothie



Smoothies are the perfect way to "hide" healthy things while providing a treat for little ones. Everybody in my house enjoys smoothies, and taking a total of maybe 5 minutes to assemble and blend, they make a fantastic snack or after meal treat.

Here's our most recent favorite combo!

In a cup, place:
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup plain Greek yoghurt
1/2 cup 1% milk
1 TB ground flax seed
1/2 medium banana
a handful of frozen blueberries (12-20 berries)
a drop of honey or agave (optional)

Using a stick blender, blend well!

*If you're using a regular blender, I suggest putting the ingredients into the blender in the opposite order, so the blueberries are closer to the blade.

Makes approximately 4 servings - 1/2 each

Other additions to try: sliced almonds, coconut or almond milk in place of half the milk, strawberries or other berries

What are your favorite additions to smoothies?

  1. yumyumyum. I LOVE smoothies. my husband is not a huge fan, which is kind of sad but also leaves me with more smoothie. :)

    my current fave is of the "green" variety- but it's super rich and dessert like, too: two handfuls of spinach + one frozen banana + one/two tbsp natural PB + one/two tbsp dark cocoa powder or raw cacao + whole milk or almond milk + honey to taste, if the 'nanas aren't sweet enough.

    I'm pregnant, so I've also experimented with prunes (for indelicate reasons, ahem) and another favorite is just blending whole milk, a frozen banana, softened prunes, and a pinch of cardamom together. better than it sounds, I promise.

    1. Ooooh, you're hiding of the greens behind the cocoa and the PB sounds superbly tasty. I might have to try that as I haven't been brave enough to go for a green smoothie as of yet.
      Congratulations on your little one - I blog stalked you and noticed it's coming so soon. How exciting! Cherish these days.
