You guys. This smoothie tastes like a blueberry muffin and it’s my newest favorite thing of . . .
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fabulous night drinking champagne and eating far too much food. . . I know I did. 🙂
But that was SO 2015 😉 Let’s start the new year with something healthy! (h.o.w.e.v.e.r. if you’re looking for something a liiiiitle heartier, check out: Easy Biscuits and Gravy <– best comfort food if you’re not feeling so hot this morning 😉 )
We’re kick starting the new year with something healthy, gluten free, vegetarian, super crazy easy and delicious –> this blueberry muffin smoothie recipe.
I feel like SO many people start the new year with the best intentions of eating healthy, so let me help you and present you with this ridiculously easy and tasty smoothie, ok?
If it’s easy and it tastes good, you can do it!
I’ve received quite a few e-mails from some of you saying how much you’re enjoying my Healthy Peach Cobbler Smoothie, so of course, I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to share another dessert flavored smoothie with you.
If you guys know me at all, you know I have the largest sweet tooth.
So anytime I can trick myself into eating something healthy that tastes dessert… it’s seriously a big deal.
Dessert flavored, yet healthy smoothie?
Who’s with me?!
I’m always excited for the fresh start of the new year, but I’m particularly looking forward to 2016.
2016 will include Trevor and I working on SMTY for a full year together.
2016 will include Trevor’s exciting new project he’s working on. 🙊
2016 will include Teddy turning THREE and hopefully me convincing Trevor that Teddy needs a furry little brother. 😉
2016 will include our first food blogger’s retreat. Can. Not. Wait.
2016 will include our SECOND wedding anniversary.
2016 will include one million other things and goals that I want to work on personally and professionally and I’m just so excited to see what 2016 has in store.
2016 will include this blueberry muffin smoothie. Probably quite a few, because I have 6 bags of frozen blueberries in my freezer… my grocery store was having a major sale on frozen blueberries and you know me, I can’t pass up a good deal.
But, seriously, you guys, it’s really good.
I love this blueberry muffin smoothie recipe, because
1. It tastes good. 😉
2. It’s healthy.
3. It’s easy.
This blueberry muffin smoothie, to me, really does taste like a blueberry muffin in liquid form! It’s thick and creamy and has a warm muffin-y flavor thanks to oatmeal, cinnamon, and blueberry greek yogurt.
This blueberry muffin smoothie is healthy, because it contains superfood: blueberries and other great ingredients like greek yogurt, oats, cinnamon, and just a touch.of.honey. ♡
Lastly, this blueberry muffin smoothie is laughably easy to make.
Easy smoothie recipes like this blueberry muffin smoothie are SO important to start your day off on the right foot. For me, if I start my day with an easy, healthy smoothie, I eat much healthier the rest of the day.
This smoothie also seriously satisfies my sugar craving that strikes
