Blueberry Banana Smoothie


Another simple but luscious Smoothie to beat the high heat, Blueberry Banana Smoothie. I love the color of the blueberry when blended with milk, ohh dear its just gorgeous. Its pricking hot outside, the temperature is unbearable, it went above 90 Degree F yesterday and today its suppose to hit 100 Degrees. The saddest part is kids don't get to play outside in the much awaited summer, I take them out in the mall play area and YMCA play area during day time. We let them play outside after 7:00 in the evening even though the humidity remains high till late night, but they're happy as they get to play real sweaty till 9:00 late night as the sunlight stay longer in summer days. I always keep fruits handy so that I can blend them to juices and smoothies when they get back from outside, store bought juice cans are rare sight at our home.
So friends, stay safe in summer as the blistering heat waves are suppose to be deadly, keep yourself and family hydrated with plenty of water, fruits, juices etc. And next time you hit the supermarket, grab a bag of blueberry and make this Smoothie at home. Enjoy Summer, stay safe and healthy :-)


Ingredients Used:-
  1. Chiquita Banana - 1
  2. Blueberry - 1 cup
  3. Milk- 1 Cup
  4. Water ~ ½ cup
  5. Non-fat yogurt -   ½ cup
  6. Ice cubes few 

Preparation Method:-
  • Pour some water in a bowl, drop the blueberries and leave it for two-three minutes. Wash them well, repeat the process for two-three times.
  • In a juice blender, throw in the blueberries, roughly chopped bananas(just break them into two-three pieces), milk and Ice cubes. Blend them well for couple of minutes.
  • Add water and yogurt blend again for another minute. Pour into tall glasses and serve immediately.
Note:- I have not added any sugar, the sweetness of banana and blueberries was just enough for us, even kids didn't demand for adding sugar. If you want it more sweet please go ahead and add some sugar as well, Enjoy the smoothie :-)
