Mornings can be hectic and sometimes a smoothie is the best option for a healthy breakfast quickly.

How does this Creamy Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie stack up?

Can you say satisfied?

That is how you will be feeling once you’ve downed this thick and creamy beauty. 🙂

No shame if you grab a spoon to scrape down the sides.

I felt none when I did it. 😉

Creamy Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie

The creamy part of this recipe is courtesy of one of my favourite source of probiotics: thick, delicious Greek yogurt.

What are the benefits of probiotics?

I could write a paper on them, so to summarize, scientific evidence suggest that live bacteria (probiotics) can treat and even prevent illnesses related to your digestion. When your digestion is good, most everything else is good too.

Yay, probiotics!

For the berries, I simply used a frozen organic brand that I’ve been using in my smoothies for ever. Tried and true, they are a great way to add freshness and sweetness to your blend.

If it’s blueberry season in your neck of the woods you can totally throw fresh berries in there.

Now what makes this a ‘breakfast’ smoothie?

Oats!

That’s right. I can’t believe I’ve never tried this before. So incredible. A great way to add substance to an average smoothie.

This truly makes it worthy of the meal title. Breakfast smoothies with oats for the win!

To add some bonus nutrition points, I supplemented with protein powder. My naturopath is pretty insistent on me getting a LOT more protein in my diet and this is such an easy way. Lately, I use a grass fed why from Natural Factors.

I love the consistency and flavour of this smoothie.

It tastes decadent somehow. Probably the creaminess of the yogurt.

With the warmer weather coming, and I’ve been promised that it is indeed coming, these will be the types of breakfasts I’ll enjoy over comfort type brekkies like oats or pancakes.

I just can't get enough smoothies, but I blame it on my love for fruit. Smoothies are the perfect excuse for me to enjoy as much fruit as I want, along with greek yogurt another love of mine. Adding the oats is perfect for post workout too! It looks so good!

Thanks Karen! I'm the same with smoothies but with the usual habit of throwing a handful of greens in the mix. It was nice to enjoy the creamy frostiness with just fruit for a change. Have a great weekend! :)

Do you think using steel cut oats would be ok!?
Sharon September 1, 2014 at 9:23 am
Hmmm ... I've only tried it with the rolled oats. I would venture to say it should be OK given the other ingredients that should soften up the oats. I'd say give it a try and report back!! :)

This is just in time for blueberry season this week, I like the non-banana option, thanks for that!
Sharon August 10, 2018 at 12:29 pm
So many smoothie recipes rely on that banana! ;) Thanks Ayngelina.
