Blueberry Pie Smoothie

I’ve never been a big pie person because I’m not into crust. I’m into filling.

Most pie has too much crust and not enough filling so I don’t bother.

Blueberry Pie Smoothie (vegan, GF) - A healthy, no-sugar-added smoothie that tastes like a blueberry pie! So good!

Instead of blueberry pie, I made a healthy, vegan, gluten-free, no-sugar-added smoothie that tastes like blueberry pie filling. And it’s so good.

I used 1 bag of frozen blueberries, 1 banana, blueberry juice, vanilla, a sugar-free sweetener and blended it. You can substitute with grape, cherry, or pomegranate juice.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Add enough juice to get your blender churning and start pulverizing the blueberries. Amounts will vary depending on how thick you like your smoothies and how juicy the berries are, but I needed almost 1 cup.

Using frozen blueberries ensures you don’t need to add ice, which would water down the smoothie. You can substitute with fresh blueberries if you have extra, but that’s a problem I never have because when they’re in season I inhale them. I save frozen for baking and smoothies.

The banana adds creaminess, richness, smoothness and doesn’t impart any real banana flavor, so you’re safe if you don’t like bananas, or just omit and use a bit less juice. The vanilla rounds it out and provides an authentic pie filling taste.

Based on how sweet you like your smoothies, how sweet the fruit is, how sweet the juice is, sweeten to taste with your favorite sweetener.

My definition of ‘no-sugar-added’ means I did not dump in boatloads of sugar. There may or may not be sugar in the juice selected, and yes all fruit has fructose (sugar), but I didn’t add any.

It’s sweet, satisfying, full of antioxidants, fiber, and tastes like blueberry pie. Minus the crust. A total win.

They went down so easily and my daughter had a blue ‘milk mustache’ around her lips for the rest of the day.

Blueberry Pie Smoothie (vegan, GF)

This healthy, vegan, gluten-free, no-sugar-added smoothie tastes like blueberry pie filling. It’s sweet, satisfying, full of antioxidants, fiber, and tastes like a blueberry pie, minus the crust. I recommend frozen blueberries so you don’t need to add ice, and they’re readily available and less expensive, although you can use fresh blueberries. Use your favorite juice for blending and add slowly to achieve desired consistency. The smoothies go down so easily, blue ‘milk mustache’ and all.

Ingredients:

12 ounces frozen blueberries, do not thaw (fresh may be used, but you’ll likely need to add ice)
1 med/large ripe banana (peeled and previously frozen in chunks is ideal)
about 1 cup blueberry, grape, cherry, or pomegranate juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
sweetener, to taste (zero-calorie sweetener, stevia, agave, granulated sugar, etc.)

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients (except start with about half the amount of juice and add only as necessary to to achieved desired consistency) in the canister of a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Blueberries take awhile to break down, so you may need to blend for a couple minutes.
  2. Serve immediately. Extra portions may be frozen in freezer-safe (plastic) glasses for up to 3 months. Allow to soften at room temp before serving.
