What Equipment Do I Need to Make this Healthy Blueberry Smoothie Recipe?

Barely anything at all! You will need a decent blender though – I recently invested in a Vitamix because I use it literally every day. But you don’t need anything that hardcore to make this blueberry spinach smoothie super smooth and lump-free.

The three bits of kitchen kit you will need are:

  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Blender
  • Glasses

If you are feeling in the mood for a splurge then I highly recommend the Vitamix A2500 – it’s an amazing piece of kit! It’s what I use and I’ve been blown away by how smooth it makes everything.

Healthy Blueberry Smoothie Ingredients (and Easy Swaps)

There’s not much to this vegan blueberry smoothie recipe. Which, let’s be honest, is exactly what you want for a quick-to-make breakfast, snack, or post-workout boost.

  • Frozen blueberries – Frozen blueberries are the way to go because they cost so much less than fresh and are perfect for a smoothie as they make it nice and chilled. If you’re using fresh, just add in some extra ice if you want it cold.
  • Fresh spinach – Frozen is great too because it makes the smoothie nice and chill.
  • Rolled Oats – Just regular oats, steel-cut, or quick oats will work fine too.
  • Plant-based greek yogurt – I use the Oatley one because it tastes amazing! Other brands or plain vegan yogurt will also work just fine.
  • Maple syrup – Agave, coconut sugar, or raw cane sugar would also do the trick! If using dry sugar, you will likely need a little more – just try the smoothie once it’s blended and adjust to your own preference.
  • Fresh lime juice – This is one you can just leave out if you don’t have fresh limes, but you won’t get the zing.
  • Ice cubes – If you’re using frozen blueberries or spinach then you may not need ice cubes so don’t worry if you’re all out. Add in an extra dash of water instead if it’s coming out a little thick.

Storage and Easy Prep

If you don’t get round to drinking the blueberry spinach smoothie right away, then you can just pop it in the fridge for later. It will need a little stir when you go to drink it but it will taste just as delicious!

Pro tip: If you’re washing and freezing your spinach at home, make sure it is completely dry before freezing. You can then freeze it from fresh and it should turn out great!
