Banana, Blueberry and Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie
Are you picky about how ripe you like a banana to be before you eat it?

Sometimes I have to buy them a little green so they won’t get too ripe before I have a chance to eat them.

There’s a particular point where a banana gets a little to ripe for my taste buds.  But I hate to let them go to waste.

So I’ll convince myself that I’ll just let them get really ripe and then I’ll make banana bread.

Then 9 times out of 10 I’ll run out of time to make banana bread, see a couple gnats hanging around the super ripe bananas, and out to the trash they go.

There are 2 really ripe bananas sitting on my counter right now that I for sure will be making something with today (I hope).

When bananas start getting ripe faster than they can be eaten, an idea is to store them in the freezer for use in smoothies.

Just peel the banana and squeeze lime or lemon juice all over them, put each one in a separate snack size Ziploc bag, and then store them in the freezer.  They hold their color really well when using the citrus juice.

So here’s a smoothie recipe for using up those bananas if you have too many, or even if you don’t have too many it’s a great breakfast on-the-go.

It tastes best when the smoothie is really cold so I like to use frozen blueberries and a frozen banana if I have one.

Have a great week and thank you so much for stopping by.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

  4. Thanks Nancy for sharing this awesome recipe. One of my favorite for creating delicious recipes is the blueberry because its rich with anti-oxidants that neutralize free radicals. Banana also have a lot of benefits. I love your photos so I pinned them.

    • Hi Philip, thank you for your comment and for your pins too! I love blueberries for all of the reasons that you mentioned and they last so well in the freezer too (which means I get to buy more of them when they go on sale). Have a nice weekend!
