I’m not trying to brag but it has been sunny, warm and B-E-A-yoootiful in Northern California. Part of me wants it to keep raining to help with the never-ending drought, but the other part of me is really enjoying being able to feel the sunshine on my bare skin without freezing my buns off.

Either way, it’s out of my control, but I’d be lying if I said I’m not soaking up every minute with my windows open, sipping blueberry smoothies.

Aren’t those blueberries gorgeous? I’m usually really good about only purchasing local and seasonal produce (outside of avocados and bananas because I can’t survive without them) but fresh blueberries were on sale at the market this weekend and I couldn’t let them go to waste.

Okay, that’s not entirely true. I really just wanted them for these pictures. Frozen blueberries are DELISH in this smoothie, but unfortunately they aren’t as photogenic and they don’t float as well. #foodbloggerproblems

Wild blueberries have also been shown to have twice the antioxidant capacity of larger varieties, providing double the anti-inflammatory benefits to protect us against diseases like cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and heart disease.

In addition to little powerhouse blueberries, we’re blending in some winter produce (green apple and orange juice) for a strong boost of vitamin C. I added banana and a touch of almond milk to give it a creamier texture but if you want it even thicker, you can try Amanda’s favorite tip and add some rolled oats as well.

All together, it’s a light and refreshing smoothie that will instantly make you feel like you’re basking in sunshine. Even when you’re not. ;)

Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 1 cup wild blueberries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup diced green apple, frozen
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • ½ cup yogurt, I like vanilla almond milk yogurt
  • ¼ cup orange juice

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a blender, combine the frozen blueberries, apple, banana, yogurt and orange juice. Blend slowly and use a smoothie wand (or something similar that's blender safe) to scrape down the sides as you blend. You can add a small splash of orange juice as needed to help blend but be careful not to add too much or it will become soupy!
  • Transfer to a bowl for serving and finish with granola and sliced fruit. Serve immediately and enjoy!
