  1. i adore blending frozen bananas. tastes like ice cream, doesn't it? i love the combination of blueberry and banana too. Thank you SO much for the shout out on facebook! loving your blog more and more everyday. :)

  2. This is one of our favorites as well. Have a fabulous day!

  3. Do I have to use frozen bananas, would fresh not work?

    1. I make this fresh with diet green tea with citrus I add ice vanilla protein and yogurt (no milk)

    2. I froze fresh banana pieces worked great

  4. I take it this means your off the sweet wagon? ;) LOL! This looks fabulous! We love blending up fruit for smoothies.

    1. Well Dee, its like this... My wagon and I have a love hate relationship. Right now, we are madly deeply in love. I am rebuilding it with reinforced steel sides. Hopefully, that will keep me from jumping off of it. : ) My scale and I are at odds, so some balance is in order.

  5. Can I just say how much I love this straw?! Totally takes me back to childhood :)

  6. Cold...Creamy...and Delicious! I love that twisty straw...I haven't drank from one in ages.

  7. Beautiful shake, smoothie, breakfast - whatever! I want one :) I could add some protein powder to this and be ready for the day. Yummmy

  8. This shake sounds do refreshing! And of course very healthy :D
    By the way your twisty straw is genius - I have gone much too long without using one :)

  9. I have really enjoyed making smoothies lately, but I have been adding ice to make it cold. What a great idea to use frozen bananas! Oh, and the color of this smoothie is just beautiful!

  10. Beautiful color! I want to make one now haha! =D


  12. just bought some almond milk, think I will substitute lowfat milk with this and give it a try

  13. Oh my, I love the color! Talk about eating with our eyes.

  14. Hello, I work for a blueberry nursery and we're looking for blueberry recipes to share on our blog! May we share a photo and link to your blog from our blog? Please let me know, thank you!

  15. Can I substitute greek yogurt for the milk?

  16. when I go to the store and they have fruits on special I buy lots of them I clean them and separate them in snack Ziploc bags and freeze them. This way they are ready any time I want smoothies.

  17. Just got a breast cancer diagnosis and a new Ninja for my birthday so the recipe appeals for many reasons. Do you know how many calories per serving, please? Thanks for the recipe - I am anxious to give it a go! Wanda

  18. Looks yummy. I am counting calories, can you tell me how many in this smoothie?

  19. I made it a few days ago (though with a little less apple juice, as I like a thicker smoothie). Delicious! I have already bought more blueberries and cucumber for the next one!
