How To Make the Blueberry Cinnamon Smoothie

This recipe calls for bananas and blueberries, which add the right amount of sweetness alongside a host of health benefits. A smoothie regular, bananas promote heart health, aid digestion and support weight loss.

Blueberries: An antioxidant superfood

Blueberries, known as an antioxidant superfood that is rich in potassium and vitamin C, also boast anti-inflammatory properties, which can help lower your risk of heart disease and cancer. Pro tip: If you’re using frozen blueberries in this smoothie, remember, you might want to add a little extra water!

Blueberries are beneficial for everyone and there are many ways to incorporate them for you and your family (like this Avocado Blueberry Baby Smoothie for kids!)

adding yogurt into a blender

After blueberries and bananas, you’ll add Greek yogurt as the base, which is packed with probiotics. I opt for Greek yogurt often, because it’s creamier and has less sugar than regular yogurt — and if you’re lactose intolerant, you might also find Greek yogurt easier to digest.

adding cinnamon into a blender

If you’ve been following along for a while, you may know that cinnamon is one of my favorite healthy recipe ingredients. Rich in antioxidants, and with the ability to help keep blood sugar at bay, cinnamon is a tried-and-true smoothie addition.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which high-speed blender do you recommend?

My all-time favorite blender is the Blendtec brand, however, I also recommend Ninja or Vitamix for smoothies!

How do I change the smoothie consistency?

Add more water and less ice for a thinner smoothie. Or, you can use frozen fruit and/or add more ice for a thicker smoothie.

Is it ok to use frozen blueberries instead of fresh blueberries?

Frozen fruit is always a good option, especially when certain produce is out of season or hard to source locally. We always have our freezer stocked with frozen berries, mango, pineapple, ripe bananas and more.
