Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

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.

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!!!

Toodles,

  1. I must have this for breakfast today! Looks so yummy and refreshing!

  2. Anything that tastes like a blueberry muffin has to be absolutely wonderful!

  3. Smoothies are my favorite summer snack. I love the flavor of this one!

  4. Not a huge blueberry fan but I do like them in muffins so this smoothie is a unique adaptation and congratulations on making the foodbuzz Top 9!

  5. Just made these and poured them into popsicle moulds! Had a decent amount left over but the consistency wasn’t thick enough (used unfrozen coconut milk and frozen blueberries) so added some frozen bananas, peanut butter and 1scoop vanilla protein powder….MMMMMM delicious! Tasted exactly like a blueberry muffin and so filling! thank you so much for the recipe!
