This blueberry smoothie recipe was created in honor of National Blueberry Month. Blueberries are very low in calories and rich in dietary fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants that contribute towards optimum health and wellness. These vitamins and minerals work together as antioxidants, which help limit free radical injury to the body.
How to Make Blueberry Smoothie
You only need a handful of ingredients to make this smoothie, and the fresher the blueberries, the better the result. My favorite thing is to go blueberry picking, come inside, and make this shake. Here's what you need:
- Greek yogurt
- Almond Milk (or milk of your choice)
- Almond Butter (or nut butter of your choice)
- Bee Inspired Honey
- Kale or super greens or whatever greens you have on-hand

There is no 'right' or 'wrong' when you make smoothies.
You can replace any ingredient with an ingredient that you prefer using. If it's not cold enough, add a few ice cubes. Like more bananas, add more! Want to mix it up with different kinds of berries, go for it. Only fresh spinach on hand is just as nice for this recipe.
At Waking Kara, we recommend using your favorite type of Eastern Shore honey. Clover and spring honey have a mild sweetness and flavor that fits any smoothie recipe. If you like your smoothie sweeter, try using blueberry or blackberry honey. Orange blossom honey is perfect for the summer and adds a nice flowery touch. The varietal honey is based on what the bees pollinate, so there are no added flavors, simply pure natural raw honey.
This blueberry smoothie will serve you and your family well as a super-fruit-filled meal replacement. Satisfy hunger and soothe the soul. Perfect for a quick breakfast on those hot July mornings or afternoons.
