Bowl of Blueberries Smoothie

Cool, creamy, and devoid of dairy! This nutritious, vegan smoothie requires just four ingredients and ten minutes to prepare. It is thick enough to accommodate additional toppings and is best consumed with a spoon.

Smoothies have always been something I wished I could get from a juice bar or prepare at home on weekends. But yogurt and bananas have never been my thing, which makes it tough for me to enjoy smoothies, which normally feature either yogurt or bananas. When I first heard about the smoothie bowl fad last year, my enthusiasm about making beautiful, bright bowls was rapidly dampened when I recalled the whole yogurt and banana issue womp womp.

That is why I am very pleased with myself for creating this Blueberry Smoothie Bowl. There will be no yogurt. There will be no bananas. I only like four major components.

Let’s start with the ingredients:

  • Freshly squeezed orange juice with no additives. The minute it takes to cut an orange in half and juice it is well worth it.
  • Blueberries: Frozen; I do not advocate using fresh. You want the consistency that it provides when frozen.
  • Pineapple: Likewise frozen (as mentioned above), the strong taste of pineapple gives a fantastic balance to the citrus of the orange and the sweetness and acidity of the blueberries.
  • Chia seeds: You’ve heard me talk about them before, and they’ve proved effective as a thickening factor in the smoothie.

I garnished mine with orange slices, coconut shreds, and fresh pomegranate arils. There is no need for dairy or sugar. The coconut added a great tropical touch to compensate for the rainy, chilly weather outside. I closed my eyes and envisioned myself on a beach in the Caribbean. To be sure, it didn’t work, but I tried!

I like the color; it’s such a beautiful purple, and knowing that it’s made entirely of natural and healthy ingredients makes it even more appealing.

You could do anything you wanted with the toppings. I could go on and on about fresh pineapple slices, blueberries, and granola, but you don’t need me rambling at you for that long.
