Banana and Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

blueberry and banana smoothie recipe
Last week we whipped up some of these delicious banana and blueberry smoothies that the family just loved! They are very easy to prepare and you can use fresh or frozen fruit. You will need a blender and from start to finish...less than 5 minutes to make them!

Banana & Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

1/4 cup milk
1 cup vanilla ice cream
handful of blueberries
1/2 banana
1 to 2 teaspoons honey
2 large ice cubes

If you are using frozen blueberries...let them thaw at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes to make blending easier. Place all of the ingredients in a large blender container and process until it reaches your desired consistency. This takes us 20 to 30 seconds per batch of smoothies that we make.Pour smoothie mixture into a chilled smoothie cup and enjoy!

Note: You can substitute the blueberries with strawberries, mulberries, boysenberries, blackberries or red raspberries. Use whatever type of berry you have on hand or your favorite ones.
