Blueberry Wake-Up Call Smoothie

by jenny sansouci on April 21, 2011

This morning I woke up to realize I was out of kale – no green breakfast smoothie for me! Instead, I went with what I had in the kitchen and made an absolutely ridiculous blueberry smoothie (in my Vita-Mix) that was creamy, sweet and totally zingy. “Zingy” meaning it woke me up. You’ll see why in a second.

Blueberry Wake-Up Call Smoothie:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Bliss Cappuccino ice cream (there’s the kicker!)
  • 1 small spoonful of almond butter
  • Coconut water (amount varies depending on desired consistency)
  • A few ice cubes
  • Extra nutritional points for a sprinkle of chia seeds & drizzle of flax oil (optional)

The excitement I have over this smoothie is probably due to the fact that there’s coffee (organic, fair trade coffee!) in the coconut ice cream, and I very rarely, if ever, drink coffee…hence the wake-up call. Wowzers!

If you don’t have Coconut Bliss ice cream on hand (which is, by the way, organic, dairy free, soy free, sugar free, and full of happiness), you could always pour a little bit of coffee into the smoothie + some extra ice or almond milk/coconut milk.

Best thing about this smoothie is that it really can be a meal. The almond butter & banana will keep you full for awhile!


I love smoothies!

I love it! I always make smoothies for breakfast and often add a touch of Bliss and have all of this to try at home tomorrow 🙂

Thanks for the awesome Coconut Bliss shout out!
