This creamy blueberry banana smoothie is packed with calcium, vitamin C, B-vitamins, and iron. And, it's high in protein and fiber. Plus, all my smoothie recipes are always gluten-free and dairy-free. Let me know if you try this recipe. Creamy Vanilla Blueberry Smoothie Yield: 2 - 4 servings; 6 cups; 48 ounces Duration: 5 minutes Ingredients 1.5 cups crushed ice 2 Frozen Bananas 2 Tablespoons Arbonne Vanilla Protein Shake Mix, (or another protein mix) 1 ½ cups unsweetened, unflavored almond milk 1.5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries Directions Place ingredients in the blender in the following order: ice, frozen banana, protein powder, almond milk, and blueberries. Blend all ingredients in a blender on high, until creamy and smooth, about 1 minute. Kitchen Tools Blender or Vitamix Notes I prefer to use crushed ice and a frozen banana which yields a colder smoothie. I peel and slice the banana before freezing, and I freeze the bananas at least 24 hours ahead of time. Slicing the banana helps to ensure the smoothie blends easily.
If you follow health food trends, chances are that you've heard of the superfood pseudograin, quinoa. It is nutrient-rich, packs a complete protein, is high in fiber, etc. etc. The bottom line is that you should probably be trying to come up with a way to integrate quinoa into your diet, whether gluten-free or not. Nuwi offers an easy solution with their gluten-free quinoa smoothie with banana, which is not only gluten-free, but lactose-free with no sugar added as well. These smoothies are a great way to take your quinoa on the go, and they actually retain that fresh-blended smoothie quality, even though they're totally shelf-stable. They're relatively light on sugar, and pack 3g of fiber and 3g of complete protein in one tiny 10 oz., 160 calorie bottle. They're worth a try, especially if you've been looking for a way to up your quinoa intake. For more information visit their site.

I love fruit smoothies! I love them for breakfast, I love them for lunch, I love them for a snack, and I even love them for dessert. This smoothie is one of the easiest, moist satisfying smoothies I know how to make. It's also quite flexible. You can use so many different kinds of fruits or berries, according to your tastes or what's available. For each smoothie take: 1 banana 1/2 cup yogurt 1 cup of whole raw milk, or whole, non-homogenized organic milk 1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla 1 tablespoon honey, dissolved in 1 tablespoon wam water 1/2 cup strawberries 1/2 cup blueberries 1/2 cup blackberries 1/2 cup peach 1 pinch of sea salt Mix ingredients in blender until smooth. Serve immediately.
2 cups fresh strawberries 2 large bananas 4 oz. tofu 1/8-¼ cup liquid sweetener (honey, fructose, etc.) 2-3 teaspoon vanilla flavoring (Id use the vanilla bean in the potato vodka tip) Water or Juicere Freeze the fruit before blending . (You can also use blueberries, raspberries, peaches, pears, kiwis, whatever your child likes and can tolerate.) Blend all ingredients thoroughly, adding just enough water or juice to bring the smoothie to the desired consistency.
