Hi Everyone and Happy Saturday!
I wanted to have dessert after my wonderful dinner that I will share with you later this week, and I reached for my Chocolate Coconut Banana Cream Parfait only to find they were gone! They didn’t last very long in my house. So what is a girl to do when she wants a dessert NOW and there isn’t any left? Well make a quick guilt-free healthy smoothie!
I have been on a major blueberry craze, so I decided to try to re-create a blueberry muffin in a smoothie form. I will tell you it tastes darn good!! It’s creamy, smooth, has a hint of cinnamon and is perfect for cooling off on a hot day.
When making this smoothie I used frozen coconut milk, blueberries, stevia and vanilla extract. I tasted it and it was missing something, so I decided to add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and a 1/4 cup of Chobani plain greek yogurt. Presto, perfecto!! It turned out to be just what I was hoping for. Now of course I had to top it with some whip cream because whip cream is good on almost everything!!
This recipe makes about 2 cups, but being the selfish dessert girl that I am, I decided to make this one serving because I didn’t want to share. Somethings just taste to good to share. I know, you know what I am talking about. I did give a sip to my Husband to see what he thought. He said it was good, but different. He’s not used to all these crazy recipes that I make. I love this smoothie!!!
If you don’t have frozen coconut milk, you can switch up this recipe by using non-frozen unsweetened coconut milk and frozen blueberries instead of fresh. The flavor and texture should be the same. If your a blueberry muffin fan, you must make this recipe.
- 1½ cups unsweetened coconut milk, frozen
- ½ cup blueberries
- ¼ cup greek yogurt, plain (I used Chobani)
- 1 tsp.vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp. cinnamon, ground
- ½ tsp. stevia
- In a blender add all the ingredients and process until smooth.

My Husband is out of coffee, so I made a deal with him, if he does the dishes, I’ll go to Target with him. Who really needs to make a deal to go to Target? I would have went even if he didn’t do the dishes. Don’t tell him that. lol
Well, I better get going. Have a great Saturday!!!
