I’ve always enjoyed blueberries. Yet it wasn’t until I spent last summer in Maine with the kids that I fell in LOVE with them. As we rode our bikes through Acadia National Park, we’d stop along the trail and forage for wild blueberries. They were about half the size of the ones I’m used to picking in Florida, but they were easily twice as delicious.

With four ingredients plus some options for taking it to the next level, this healthy blueberry smoothie has amazing health benefits to support your journey toward a plant-based diet, or if you’re simply wanting to add more fruit into your day.

Tips for Blending a Healthy Smoothie

  1. Use frozen blueberries to chill the smoothie (I love Wymann’s Wild Maine ones)
  2. Add more cashew milk to make the consistency thinner if needed.
  3. Swap the banana for avocado to decrease the fruit sugars
  4. Store the second serving in an airtight container and have it for breakfast the next day.

This creamy smoothie can be made with just four ingredients and no added sugar. Also, it’s simple, easy to make and full of vibrant blueberries. I love that it’s vegan, gluten-free and works for paleo and Whole30 diets, too.

If you want a breakfast-worthy smoothie, this is one of my community’s favorite healthy smoothie recipes and is full of healthy fats and fiber to keep you going for hours. In addition, the blueberries add a boost of antioxidant-rich nutrition. This blend of vibrant wild blueberries and creamy cashew yogurt is perfect as an energizing mid-morning snack or afternoon pick-me-up.

Ingredients in Blueberry Smoothie

Since dairy and animal products can cause inflammation and digestive issues, I’m using 100% plants in this recipe. You’ll be feeling your best after sipping on a smoothie packed with these healthy ingredients:


Blueberries are one of the world’s healthiest foods, and we love them! Also, early on in our blending days, we started using blueberries to create beginner-friendly smoothies that kids and adults alike wouldn’t find intimidating.

Now, there’s a lot of nutrition packed into every little blueberry. Blueberries contain vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects your cells from free radical damage. One study found that drinking blueberry juice daily reduces oxidative DNA damage.

The beautiful blue color is produced by anthocyanins. They support healthy collagen growth and give your skin a radiant glow. Aside from giving us glowing skin, blueberries also protect our brain cells as we age.


Cashews offer nutrition in the form of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and protein. They also contain magnesium, which plays an important role in metabolic reactions like energy production, cell signaling, and nerve function. Healthy magnesium levels stabilize mood and promote better sleep. What’s not to love about that?

In this blueberry smoothie, you’ll be using cashew milk and cashew yogurt to boost the protein content and make it even creamier.


The banana in this healthy blueberry smoothie recipe provides a natural sweetener—plus, it contains pectin and low-glycemic sugars, so it won’t cause your blood sugar to spike. Bananas are also a great source of prebiotics, which are food for the good bacteria in your gut.

This recipe calls for bananas, and you can use fresh or frozen. Make sure to add a few ice cubes to the blender if using fresh bananas. Frozen bananas will give your smoothie a creamier, thicker texture. All you have to do is peel them, cut them in chunks, and place the chunks in a resealable freezer bag. You can also freeze the chunks on a baking sheet for an hour, then place the frozen chunks in a resealable freezer bag to keep the chunks separated.

  1. I eat frozen blueberries as a snack daily! I tell people they’re like popping skittles but more nutritious. Consequently, when I saw that your recipes called for frozen blueberries, all I has to do was go to the freezer and not to the grocery!

    Love this – have to admit blueberries are my go to fruit for a smoothie. I did add some fresh kale to mine.

  3. 4 stars
    I loved the creaminess of this smoothie, but I have found that blueberries, no matter how delicious, never work well as the star of a smoothie. This smoothie was good, just very bland. However, I know that this smoothie was packed full of amazing nutrients. I made mine with Kite Hill yogurt, almond milk, spinach, protein powder, and spirulina.
