Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

You guys!  This blueberry muffin smoothie is so good!  If you have been following this blog for awhile, you know I prefer to add real food to smoothies instead of protein powder.  I think protein powder is too expensive and I also prefer to eat things the way nature intended.  This is my latest healthy smoothie recipe.   This blueberry muffin smoothie contains 8 1/2 grams of protein.  It is a breakfast that will keep you full for some time.  If you can’t eat oats, quinoa flakes would be a good substitute.   1/4 cup of quinoa flakes contains about 4 grams of protein.  You can whip this healthy smoothie up in just minutes!

Another great thing you could do with this smoothie recipe, is make popsicles or smoothie pops with it.  I like these molds.  My kids love them too! You could probably even sneak some greens in here.  The blueberries would mask the color and the banana would mask the flavor of the greens.   Trust me.  I fool my kids all the time. 🙂

  1. Wow..this looks so good. I never would have thought of putting quinoa flakes into a smoothie! Definitely going to try it some morning soon. Thanks for sharing!!
  2. This looks awesome!! I'm with you, I hate to add protein powder to smoothies, too. Most of the ones at stores are filled with with a lot of other junk besides protein. I'll have to try this, blueberries are so good for you! Thanks for the recipe.
      1. I made this for breakfast today and it was delicious!! I did add a little vanilla, just because I like the flavor and some hemp seeds along with the chia seeds just because they're good for me!! I checked out the other recipe mentioned below and it's not like yours. I'm not much for greek yogurt so yours is much better. Keep up the great work with your recipes. You help people like me who want to eat healthy but aren't good with ideas for recipes. Thank you!!
    1. I don't even know who that is. I came up with the recipe on my own and I don't appreciate being accused of recipe stealing.
      1. I looked for a similar recipe to this with that person's name all over online, I couldn't find anything. I think someone wanted to get her name out there thru you. This is a great smoothie idea!
        1. This is the recipe, but it's impossible to create something 100 percent unique. I'm a fan of both blogs and both recipes have their merits!
          1. That isn't even the same recipe. There are probably hundreds of variations on a blueberry muffin smoothie if you Google it.
    2. Kerry you owe Melissa an apology. The recipes are not even close! Plus Melissa is a genius at creating her own recipes for all of us and doesn't need to "steal" someone else's recipes.
  3. I made this for breakfast this morning! It was delicious and very filling. I'm not wild about protein powders either - I don't like the gritty taste and all the other stuff in them. Thanks for this recipe!
  4. You didn't steal her recipe, Melissa. She uses lemon zest and Greek yogurt in hers. Yours sounds delicious! I'll admit, I'm a protein powder user - I only use Click Espresso - and I do enjoy it. May try your recipe soon, though - just to FRUIT things up a bit!
    1. Thanks for letting me know Kari! It was really bothering me that someone would think I would steal a recipe. I have had my recipes ripped off and I know that sucks. I would never do it to anyone else.
  5. This smoothie sounds very nice - good flavor combination. I am a protein powder user, because of the protein levels I need. For this one, I would probably choose to make it with non-fat milk rather than almond milk, so as to up the protein level. I also like that this is a different flavor combination than I usually see.
  6. Just made it, it's great! I added a teaspoon of organic vanilla extract, and a packet of organic Stevia to sweeten it up just because I'm PMSing, lol! Love it, thanks!
  7. I've never put oats in a smoothie, what a good idea. I'm going to make this in the morning. I'll double it so I can make popsicles too, another great idea. Thanks Melissa!
  8. Made this just a minute ago but added a handful of spinach & little more milk (because with the added spinach it was too thick). LOVED IT and added it to my am smoothie rotation!!
  9. I made this the other day and it was incredible. I had to use a little more almond milk as it was so thick I couldnt even pour it out of my blender. Any thoughts on if I may have done anything wrong to make it so thick?
  10. This looks delicious! I will be making this tomorrow for breakfast. Your recipes are fabulous, thank you so much for sharing. I hope a cookbook is in your near future.
  11. Your recipie looks delicious - a question though - you say to blend all ingredients - do you know if chia seeds perform the same way in the body if blended, as in help with the feeling of fullness?
