Just like your favorite baked good, but in smoothie form! This Blueberry Muffin Smoothie is protein-packed, completely plant-based (vegan!), and absolutely DELISH.
You know the ones I'm talking about. Rich, decadent, giant, butter-y blueberry muffins topped with the most perfect sugary crumble top. So good to eat until later when you have that sugar/carb crash! Well, this smoothie is a healthified version of that muffin. Similar taste, but will keep you satisfied and full through morning.
What's in it?
- Silk's super creamy Unsweetened Cashewmilk
- frozen organic blueberries
- cooked quinoa! (yay for extra protein)
- almond flour (helps regulate blood sugar)
- coconut oil (yay for healthy fat)
- vegan vanilla protein powder (this one is my fav)
- a bit of maple syrup (optional)
Frozen organic blueberries are a staple at our house. I buy them almost every week! Babycakes likes to snack on them --- either in her lunchbox or after school. I love that they're so high in antioxidants, low on the glycemic-index (that's part of why I prefer using them in smoothies instead of frozen bananas), and full of vitamin K and fiber. And, they're just so darn pretty!! LOOK at that gorgeous purple.
Have you tried Silk's cashewmilk yet? It really is my favorite and always in my fridge. And I have so many recipes that use it, the half gallon will be gone before you know it and you'll have to restock!
- Easy Olive Oil Cake
- Carrot Ginger Soup
- Carrot Cake Pancakes
- Green Smoothie Pancakes
- Rainbow Chopped Salad
- Triple Chocolate Cupcakes
And don't be scared of the quinoa or almond flour in the smoothie. They help bring some of that true "muffin" taste and a lot of nutrients... but they blend up completely in the Blendtec, so it's just smooth, creamy, deliciousness that you taste.
Breakfast is served!
