Healthy Delicious Forest Blueberry Smoothie

Hello smoothie lovers! 😀

Today I’m sharing with you this gorgeous fiber- and antioxidant-packed smoothie. It will make a perfect meal replacement. You can serve it for breakfast, lunch or healthy dinner. You decide ūüėČ

The serving for this smoothie jar is quite abundant (460 g and “only” 363 kcal) so I¬†am sure you won’t get hungry if you replace any meal with this smoothie. It is well-balanced: contains high amount of proteins, some healthy fatty acids from seeds, carbs to get you going and a good amount of fiber to keep you satisfied for a long time.

This smoothie has two layers:

  • The beige layer¬†is¬†a filling, fiber-rich¬†banana+apple+pear smoothie with chia and flax seeds. See the recipe in this post.
  • The¬†violet layer is simply a blueberry nice-cream which is very light and adds some berry goodness to the other layer.

For Toppings

  • 1 tbsp granola, any seeds or crushed nuts (I used Weetabix in this recipe)

Instructions

Blueberry Nice-Cream

  • To prepare the blueberry nice-cream, simply add the blueberries and the sweetener (optional) into your blender jar, and process until nice and smooth.
  • Wash your blender jar in order to create clean and distinct layers.

Banana Apple Pear Smoothie

  • Start with the yogurt and pour it into the blender jar.
  • Peel the apple and the pear, or wash them very throughly, roughly chop and also put into the blender.
  • Peel the banana and break it into chunks and add to other ingredients in the blender.
  • Lastly, add the chia seeds and the flax seeds.
  • Process until smooth.

Combining two layers

  • Pour the beige layer and then alternate it with the blueberry nice-cream. Repeat once again if your serving glass or a jar allows it.
  • Sprinkle with granola, seeds, or nuts of your choice. Decorate with fresh fruits.
  • Serve this smoothie immediately. If you want to eat it later, the smoothie can be kept in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
