Very Blueberry Smoothie




As the summer gets closer I had a request to make some low point fruit smoothies. This will be smoothie week!! A great way to get your recommended daily fruit intake. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, fiber and high in vitamin C. Enjoy!

  1. This is a perfect recipe for the big bag of frozen blueberries that I just bought. Plus, I think my kids will like this too!

  2. I'm going to love this. I've been trying get more smoothies (especially green) into my diet.

    Oh...I've been too cheap to purchase a smoothie machine...do you think the magic bullet will work efficiently for this particular smoothie?

    1. Dwana, go to Jcpenny. They have a similar blender to the bullet for $22.00. Comes in lots of colors. I use it all the time and love it.

  11. I am looking for a recent dessert recipe made with phyllo dough. These were individual pastries filled with a yogurt creme and topped with a black raspberry. How can I find it?

  12. Let's see, I have an apricot-banana in phyllo dough, or crepes with berry compote? I like the idea of filling the with yogurt, but that must have been on a different site.

  13. Love the color, so pretty! You could add spinach to that guy - I bet the taste wouldn't change all that much.

  14. Spinach? There's an idea. I've never thought to put spinach in my smoothies!

  15. Gina!
    I've been loving your smoothies! Would you mind if I featured this one on my site, www.canigettherecipe.com with full links and credits back to your site? Looking forward to hearing from you!

  16. I made this last night & it was delish! I used my Magic Bullet and it turned out great. Thanks for such an easy, yummy recipe :)

  17. I made this and then made it into Popsicles. SO yummy! My store didn't have the Weight Watchers blueberry yogurt so I used Berries 'n Cream instead.

  18. I find those artificial sweetened yogurts yucky - used lowfat buttermilk and a small drip of honey instead and it was superb! The buttermilk adds as nice creamy tang.

  19. Yummy, looks delicious! I adore blueberries and I will definitely try this smoothie. Thanks for sharing and greetings.

  20. i am not sure my smoothies are very weight watchers friendly -- but i use 1/4 cup fat free cottage cheese & 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk with 1/2 cup blueberries & a small banana... they keep me filled up for longer than you'd think!! i drink it for breakfast every morning with a little flaxseed oil thrown in...but the cottage cheese makes it SOOOO creamy!!!

  21. I just tried this for a snack this afternoon, it was delicious, but more like a slushie than a smoothie in my opinion. (Usually I think of smoothies as creamy without ice in them). It was delicious though, but I think I'd use it more for a dessert in the summer than a breakfast. Thanks again for another great recipe!

  22. A spoonful of chia seed added to a smoothie will fill you up faster and keep you full longer.

  23. If I use plain yogurt should I add more blueberries? I was thinking of making this tonight but don't have any blueberry yogurt on hand.

  24. Great recipe and cute photo. I made a similar recipe but with a little more protein. Let me know what you think!

  27. I was curious about the PP count for this. If the yogurt is 2 pts, the ice zero and on PP the blueberries also 0 -- and cutting in half, would this be 1 PP? Or am I counting wrong?
