blueberry smoothie recipe with step by step pics. smoothies and shakes are power packed with nutrients like vitamins and minerals. its good to include fruits either directly or as a smoothie or juice in your daily diet. this blueberry smoothie is rich in antioxidants too. blueberries are rich in anthocyanin which is a powerful antioxidant.

blueberry smoothie recipe

blueberries can be had directly or juiced or blended to smoothies. there are many other recipes also that you can make with them. i have shared one more recipe on blog made with blueberries which is blueberry juice.

i have also added some wheat grass in the smoothie. i grow wheatgrass and then use them in juices or smoothies. i also make wheatgrass juice or shots with them. i first came across the health benefits of wheat grass some 15 years ago when an ayurvedic doctor told me about it. i used to take wheat grass powder first, but occasionally i would buy wheatgrass from the specialty stores in mumbai and add them to smoothies or shakes. now i grow them in a pot with organic wheat grains and use them in drinks or beverages.

adding wheat grass is entirely optional in this smoothie recipe. i always make smoothies with almond milk or coconut milk. in this recipe also i have used coconut milk.

to keep the sugar intake low, i avoid adding any sweetener in smoothies. however you can add sweeteners like organic unrefined cane sugar, honey, maple syrup, jaggery, palm jaggery or coconut sugar. the recipe has one serving, but can be easily doubled or tripled.

serve blueberry smoothie as soon as you make it.

  1. Hi dassana,
    Which brand & model of mixer do you use for these smoothies? Does it also work for grinding spices & making veggie purée?

    • ruchi, i make smoothies often and this mixer works very well. it also makes green chutney from coriander and mint leaves very well. i also make small amounts of jeera powder , dhania powder and saunf powder in this mixie. there are two blades. one is for purees, shakes and smoothies and one is for dry grinding. even a simple tomato puree or paste or onion paste is a super quick job. you can even make vegetable puree. but just don’t grind coconut or coconut based masalas. here is the link – https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B01H593TB0/

      • Thanks dassana for sharing the info on model. We have been thinking of buying a new blender. In many smoothie recipes on the blog I saw this blender in the pics, so thought of asking since the appliance would be a tried&tested one. Thanks

      • welcome ruchi. you can easily buy this one. i have been using this for more than a year now. it also makes lassis, milkshakes etc. but do note its not very big like a blender jar that comes with a mixer-grinder. for small amounts it works very well. at the most you can make 2 servings of lassi or shakes or smoothies for family members or kids. but its excellent for making onion tomato paste for gravies etc and making small amounts of dhania or pudina chutney.
