Lemon Blueberry Smoothie Ingredients

 
Milk for Lemon Blueberry SmoothieMilk is a great source of casein and whey proteins. It also adds vitamin D, calcium and riboflavin to your smoothie.
You can use whole milk, or substitute 2% or 1% milk to reduce the fat in your smoothie.
Other options for milk include goat’s milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk and rice milk.

 
 
Lemon Blueberry SmoothieBananas are a primary component of many tasty smoothies. Bananas can be used fresh or frozen.
To freeze bananas, peel them and break them into chunks. Place them into freezer bags for later use. Frozen bananas help thicken smoothies better than fresh bananas.
Bananas add plenty of potassium to your diet, as well as iron, magnesium and vitamin B6.

 
BlueberriesBlueberries are a common ingredient of many fruit smoothies, thanks to the color they impart. The beautiful purple-blue color is just lovely.
Blueberries contain a component that helps to prevent urinary tract infections, as well as some that improve night vision.
Generally, blueberries are best used frozen in smoothies. If you choose fresh blueberries, be sure to check for stems and spoiled berries and then rinse and drain them.

 
Lemon-JuiceLemon Juice makes a great addition to many smoothies. The tart taste adds to the smoothie, adding a recognizable flavor.
This is one time where it really pays to use fresh. Bottled lemon juice just doesn’t do justice to the flavor that fresh lemon juice supplies.
Since most smoothies use only a small amount of lemon juice, there isn’t much nutrition provided by the juice.

Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

Chef Keith Snow from HarvestEating.com creates a delicious and healthy blueberry coconut smoothie with milk, blueberries, and almonds.

Blueberry Coconut Smoothie Ingredients:

1/2 c. blueberries
1/4 c. sliced almonds
1/4 c. coconut (unsweetened)
2 c. milk

Blend with an immersion blender until smooth.

Yummy and Healthy Smoothie!

This healthy smoothie blends the antioxidant properties of blueberries with the raw goodness of unsweetened coconut.  Adding almonds strengthens the protein characteristics of the smoothie.  The milk also adds protein.

In my mind, there is too much milk in this smoothie to make it very thick.  If I were making it myself, I’d add some ice cubes during the final part of the blending process to make it a bit thicker.

Because the video maker is using an immersion blender for this Blueberry Coconut Smoothie, you’d need to start with crushed ice, since an immersion blender won’t handle ice cubes well.

Immersion blenders are great for use in smoothies where the ingredients are small and ice cubes aren’t needed.  Thick smoothies made from small frozen berries, such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cherries.  Even sliced frozen strawberries will blend well with an immersion blender.
