Ingredients for the Perfect Blueberry Orange Smoothie
This delicious citrus berry smoothie contains only 5 ingredients and makes 2 servings.
To make this Orange and Blueberry Smoothie recipe you’ll need:
- 2 oranges (peeled)
- ½ cup frozen blueberries
- ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (note: if dairy-free, I recommend to substitute coconut milk)
- 1 banana (use frozen for extra creamy)
- ½ cup 100% apple juice
- Optional: 1 scoop collagen or vanilla protein powder
Tools Needed for the Blueberry Orange Smoothie
The brilliance of this super easy fresh orange smoothie recipe is that you don’t need many tools. You’ll simply need a knife and cutting board, measuring cup, and a blender.
If you’re going to make a lot of smoothies, I definitely recommend a quality blender. Honestly, a great blender can be the difference between a GREAT smoothie, and a just-ok smoothie.
Amazon has a multiple of blenders available in a totally affordable price range that also have great reviews (4+ stars). However, I personally love Ninja’s products (in fact, I personally use this Ninja with personal blending to-go cups).
Although I’m totally content with my Ninja, my dream is to save up and splurge on a Vitamix!
How to Make a Blueberry Orange Smoothie
Peel and slice two oranges and drop them right in your blender container
Add the frozen blueberries, Greek yogurt (or coconut milk), banana, apple juice, and the collagen or protein (if using).
Blend until everything is smooth and incorporated.
Tips: To make your shake thinner, add more apple juice. To make your smoothie thicker use a frozen banana or add some ice.
How Long does the Prepared Smoothie Last?
This smoothie definitely tastes better fresh, won’t spoil for a few days in the fridge. However, before drinking you may want to blend it again with some ice to get the smoothie consistency.
If you will not drink both servings of this citrus berry smoothie at one time, I highly recommend only making half of the recipe or freezing the leftovers in popsicle molds like these to enjoy as smoothie pops later!
Be sure to pin this super easy recipe to your drinks or smoothies Pinterest board or add it to your Yummly recipe box so you can access it quick and easy whenever you’re ready to make it!
