Banana Blueberry Smoothie Recipes -
Exquisitely creamy and delicious

Banana blueberry smoothies have become one of my favorite smoothie combinations.    These sweet, juicy little blue morsels pair very well with bananas.  Bananas are often used as a thickener for smoothies, but they also add their own unique flavor.  But do use very ripe bananas, the skins should be starting to blacken.   As bananas take on a much sweeter flavor when ripe, they will add some sweetness. 

I also threw in some other berry fruits for slight variations, and each new recipe was just as delicious as the others.   Adding other fruits also means your smoothie won’t need any extra sweetener.

What else can you throw into your blender?   Try using nut milks rather than ordinary milk, and for a tropical twist, coconut milk or water goes beautifully with blueberries.   If you like your smoothies extra thick and creamy, add some Greek-style yogurt.  Yogurt not only makes smoothies creamier, but also add its own unique taste.

But if you prefer to go dairy-free, there are plenty of options.
