Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

This is an ultra-quick post today as I’m puppy-sitting for Jac from Tinned Tomatoes. The wee man is sleeping, so I am grabbing the chance to write this before he wakes up. Shhhhh!

This smoothie, for healthy January, kind of tastes like a blueberry muffin – hence the name. As you know, I love to make smoothies, which are reminiscent of cakes and desserts and this one is no exception.

Aside from blueberries, I added a banana for sweetness, plus white grapes too. I used almond milk and added a splash of vanilla extract and almond extract. The almond extract is not everyones cup of tea, but does add a cakeyness to the drink.



I whizzed up the ingredients in my Optimum 9400 from Froothie and the drink was ready in no time. Here’s the recipe…

Yield: 2 glasses
Ingredients:
250 grams fresh blueberries
1 large ripe banana
200 grams white grapes
250 ml almond milk (or any milk you prefer)
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract

Method:
Whizz all the ingredeints together in a blender until smooth. Pour into glasses, over ice if preferred, and enjoy!


Disclosure Statement: I received the blender free to review. Any opinions expressed are my own.
