FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Yes! This recipe works both with fresh and frozen blueberries.
I use plain yogurt for this recipe but you can use a vanilla flavored yogurt. Vanilla or even blueberry yogurt would compliment this really well.
While the fruit itself provides a delicious natural sweetener you can add some sugar or honey to your liking. Try to use very ripe bananas since they will be very sweet and you’ll find that you won’t need any additional sweetener.
For this recipe I almost always use cow’s milk, but almond, soy and oat milk all work just as well.
Smoothies are best when freshly made but you can keep these stored in mason jars in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days. Some separation might occur, this is normal and you can just stir your or shake the smoothie to reincorporate.

I can’t have bananas can I just leave them out? What purpose to they serve as they seem to be in all smoothie recipes?
Please answer as I am sure there are others out there that don’t like them either.
Hey Yvonne! See my above answer. 😉 Mangoes and avocados have the closest texture to bananas. Bananas not only add health benefits but they thicken the drink which is what makes a smoothie – a smoothie. Hope that helps!
Ugh, I do not like bananas, will it still be a smoothie without bananas? Lol What else could I use?
You could substitute mango, avocado or pineapple.
