Ingredient Tips and Substitutions

Recipe FAQs

Are Blueberries Good For You in a Smoothie?

Yes, blueberries are good for you, and a great choice in a smoothie. They offer antioxidants, as well as a lot of other natural vitamins.

Of course, they don’t have to be in a smoothie to offer these benefits, but are a great addition if you plan to make one anyway.

Is It OK to Blend Blueberries?

Yes, it’s OK to blend blueberries. Frozen berries work best in terms of texture, particularly in smoothies.

While fresh berries can be used, you’ll need to add ice or other frozen fruit to balance out the consistency.

Do Blueberries Thicken Smoothies?

Yes, blueberries thicken smoothies, mostly due to the natural occurrence of pectin in them. That’s the same ingredient used in the pectin you’d make jelly with.

As such, a smoothie with blueberries in it will be thicker, and thicken more the longer it sits.

Why Does a Blueberry Smoothie Turn Brown?

A blueberry smoothie will turn brown due to oxidation, which happens with other fruits like apples and avocados as well.

To combat this, only make a single serving at a time. Use an airtight, sealed container for storage. Alternatively, add some lemon juice to the mix to fight the oxidation.

Can You Make a Blueberry Smoothie the Night Before?

Yes, you can make a blueberry smoothie the night before, and store it in the refrigerator. To prevent oxidation, add some lemon juice or store in a completely airtight container.

Smoothies are generally good for 2-3 days when stored in the fridge.

Recipe Pro Tips

  • This recipe is designed to be made in a full sized blender. You’d want to scale it down to a single serving if you plan to use a portable blender instead. If you don’t have a blender, a food processor or immersion blender work in a pinch!

Storage Tips

  • You may keep any leftover blueberry pie smoothie in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I recommend adding a squeeze of lemon juice to prevent oxidation
  • For longer term storage, measure out the ingredients into freezer bags, store in the freezer for up to 3 months, and blend directly from frozen as desired
