A quick recipe I thought up while trying to decide what to eat for breakfast. Great if you are trying to figure out what to do with those blueberries in the fridge or freezer! Also great on-the-go! Delicious and includes many foods that are a great way to start your day! Many of the ingredients, except for the blueberries and yogurt, are optional and vary depending on your own taste. I love cinnamon and a thick, super-cold smoothie. This recipe is super versatile, and you can change it depending on dietary needs or personal preference. Have fun with it!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • 3 ice cubes

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Blend blueberries, yogurt, orange juice, sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together in a blender on low speed for 30 seconds; increase speed to high and blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add ice and blend on high until smooth, about 1 minute more.

Chef's Notes

If you want it less thick, add less ice. If you want it less cold, add less ice; I do not recommend using regular yogurt, because it will make the smoothie super watery; If you want it sweeter, try adding more orange juice first. If that doesn't do it, add another tablespoon of sugar or sweetener; If you don't like vanilla, don't add it!

Reviews

  1. It was very tarty and I don t like that but if you do follow the recipe exactly. If you like it sweet and fruity add more sugar and a few more blueberrys.
  2. Orange juice is high in sugar, then you add more sugar. Healthy? No. I added natural honey and used vanilla greek yogart, eliminating the orange juice, vanilla and sugar. Want the orange flavor? Freshly squeeze your orange juice.
  3. At first I thought having the cinnamon was gross but it was delicious
  4. This is the first recipe that I have made from the site where I did make substitutions. But this is really one of those recipes that you can play around with. I used frozen blueberries (I didn't have fresh). I used a small container of strawberry Greek yogurt and added a little bit of nonfat - Read more ...
  5. The orange juice makes it a bit tart. At first I tried to omit the sugar because I am trying to do clean eating. I did have to add the sugar. You might get away with no sugar by substituting a sweeter juice like Pomegranate pineapple or apple juice. I used frozen blueberries so instead - Read more ...
  6. VERY good! I had sugar free cranberry juice so I used that in stead of OJ. Used plain yogurt and substituted Sweet N Low for the sugar. Great low cal. low carb snack!
  7. That was out of this world!!! Definitely the best smoothie I've ever tasted. I didn't happen to have any Greek yogurt so I substituted it for plain and added an extra tablespoon of sugar. Best thing I've ever had and it's pretty healthy too. I also used frozen blueberries and it tasted fine all the - Read more ...
  8. Forget the breakfast part, I’m going to be drinking this morning, noon and night. This was excellent. The only change I made was to eliminate the sugar and use honey instead, and use two ice cubes. This is a keeper!
  9. Add more orange juice than the recipe says it was too thick and needed a little more sweetness. I doubled the recipe to make it for 2 & substituted 1 cup of strawberries in for 1 of the cups of blueberries and it was great:)
  10. I really enjoyed this smoothie, and made it 3 mornings in a row to use up my blueberries. I think you could easily use frozen blueberries and skip the ice. I used Oikos nonfat Greek yogurt. For the OJ, I used Tropicana Trop 50 (low cal/low sugar) and I only used 1tsp of sugar instead - Read more ...
