Blueberry Smoothie Recipe
We all add healthy smoothies to our diets because they’re nutrient-dense, jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, have a decent amount of fibre and are a great way to keep yourself hydrated. You can prepare a smoothie in seconds, so they’re convenient, as well as being a tasty way to get your daily fruits and veggies in.
Smoothies are versatile too and can serve various needs – from warding off the hunger pangs until lunchtime to giving you an energising mid-afternoon boost, or even using them to slim down and detox. You can tailor your smoothies to suit your needs.
This smoothie is a great balance between sweet and filling. It’s packed with energy, healthy fats and slow-acting carbs from those oats – it’s a well-balanced recipe you can enjoy at breakfast.
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 25g frozen blueberries
- 25g rolled oats, raw
- 40g soaked cashews
- 375ml unsweetened almond milk
- First, soak your cashews for at least 20 minutes (or overnight in the fridge).
- Add all of the ingredients to your blender cup.
- Blend until completely smooth and enjoy!
You can replace the Almond milk with your preferred milk variety if you’re intolerant or allergic to them. As for the cashews, feel free to experiment by replacing them with other nuts or seeds to keep that fat content up.
If you prefer a thicker smoothie or are looking to bulk up the calorie content, you can increase the cashews and oats to your taste. However, you have your smoothie if you do experiment with new ingredients, be sure that you aren’t intolerant or allergic to any of those foods first. If you’re unsure, you can get a definitive answer through intolerance and allergy testing.
