This purple smoothie is my favorite smoothie right now. On hot summer days, you can substitute the bananas with frozen bananas, that way the smoothie will even have a cooling effect and it’s like an ice cream shake! So good!
For this smoothie, I’ve used unsweetened rice coconut milk which is my favorite at the moment. Of course, you can use your favorite plant-based milk. There are tons of options: almond milk, oat milk, hemp milk, cashew milk, hazelnut milk, soy milk etc.. However, the bananas make the smoothie sweet enough, so I’d suggest using unsweetened milk.
This healthy Blueberry Smoothie is a ‘Feel-Good’ Smoothie!
Blueberries are truly magical little berries. Not only do they contain iron, magnesium, and potassium, they also reduce pain, are anti-inflammatory agents and increase the production of dopamine, which is the brain’s feel-good chemical.

- 2 ripe bananas , peeled
- 2/3 cup frozen blueberries (you can use fresh ones too but the color will be lighter)
- 2/3 cup plant-based milk (I used unsweetened rice coconut milk)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
- Toss all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until completely smooth.
Enjoy and feel good! :)
If you want to have the banana hearts, cut off a few slices of the banana and cut out hearts with a small cookie cutter. Press the banana hearts on the inside of the glass before filling in the smoothie.
