Of course, any alternative milk will work well with this recipe, like almond milk or coconut milk. So you can customize them entirely to your liking.
How to make our blueberry and banana smoothie
This blueberry and banana smoothie only takes five minutes to prepare, so you can whip it up in a flash! Simply put the tofu, soy milk, blueberries, raw spinach and banana in a blender and blend until smooth. If you want your smoothie to be really cold, toss some ice in the blender while you mix. Yum!
Our blueberry banana smoothie recipe has enough smoothie for two, but we don’t blame you if you save it all for yourself! Enjoy one for breakfast and the second for the afternoon pick me up!
The powerful ingredients
Our hearty smoothies contain a number of nutrient-dense ingredients that pack vitamins and minerals into every sip. First, blueberries are full of antioxidants that can protect your body from disease-causing compounds and boost your immune system. Meanwhile, they are also high in fiber and very low in calories. So they are a wonderful weight loss food to add to your diet!
Then there are the bananas, which add to the smoothie’s sweet taste and creamy, mouth-melting consistency. These delicious yellow fruits also aid digestion and provide you with lasting energy. After all, this superfood is a great source of potassium for heart health and manganese for your skin.
With every sip you get your greens!
Let’s not ignore our favorite leafy vegetable: spinach! You may barely taste the spinach in these delicious blueberry and banana smoothies, but they offer powerful nutritional value! These wonderful greens contain folic acid and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as energy-building iron.
Spinach is now also an excellent source of chlorophyll and carotenoids. These compounds have amazing anti-inflammatory and carcinogenic properties. Popeye definitely got it right when he loaded up this powerful veggie!
Our smoothies are nutritious and balanced
When these potent superfoods work with high-protein tofu, the result is a great smoothie! As an added bonus, this delicious drink only contains 6 grams of fat with no trans fats. That makes this blueberry and banana smoothie recipe easy to make, delicious, and waist-friendly. A triple threat!
